VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 30, 2014) - Bravada Gold Corporation ("Bravada" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BVA)(FRANKFURT:BRT) announces that, at the Annual General and Special Meeting of the Company held on April 25, 2014 (the "Meeting"), shareholders resolved to:
- Elect incumbent board members, Joseph A. Kizis, Jr., Lawrence Page Q. C., John Kerr, Michael Rowley, G. Ross McDonald and Richard Hughes and also to elect Mr. Nigel Bunting, a nominee who has not previously served in such capacity.
After attending Gordonstoun School and the College of Law in London, Nigel Bunting joined Lloyds of London Insurance broker CT Bowring & Co in 1979, which subsequently became Marsh & McLennan. In 1997 Nigel joined Suffolk Life, an embryonic Insurance company. Nigel became a Director in 1998, and over the next 10 years played a pivotal role turning the company into the one of the UK's leading self-invested personal pension (SIPP) administrators. Nigel was for many years not only the main Media contact at Suffolk Life, but also had sole responsibility for the Sales & Marketing of the business. By 2008 Suffolk Life had £2.5 billion assets under management and the business was bought by Legal & General for £62.5m. Since then Nigel has focused on his various Charitable & Investment interests, which are mainly in the commodity and precious metals space which has become a passion for Nigel.
Mr. Paul Dircksen did not stand for election and the Company thanks him for his service as a director over many years. By subsequent directors' resolution, certain directors and officers were appointed as officers including: Joseph A. Kizis, Jr. as President, Lawrence Page as Chairman, Graham Thatcher as Chief Financial Officer and Arie Page as Corporate Secretary.
- Approve the Company's 2014 10% rolling incentive stock option plan.
- Approve as a Special Resolution a sale of the Company's shares of two wholly-owned subsidiary companies holding the majority of the Company's mineral properties.
At the Meeting, the Chairman advised the shareholders that conclusion of the sale of the Company's subsidiaries' shares (the "Transaction") was uncertain. The Company has since confirmed that the Transaction will not proceed.
Subsequent to termination of the Transaction, Mantra Capital Inc. presented Bravada with an alternative offer for the sale of the Wind Mountain property in Nevada. A term sheet has been signed by both parties and the new transaction is anticipated to consist of staged payments totalling approximately Cd$5.2 million as follows:
- Cd$50,000 upon execution of an option agreement;
- Within 60 days of receiving TSXV approval, $450,000 cash and $100,000 in Mantra stock;
- Upon the first anniversary of TSXV approval, $500,000 cash and $100,000 in Mantra stock;
- Upon the second anniversary of TSXV approval, $2,000,000 (up to 50% as Mantra stock); and
- Upon the third anniversary of TSXV approval, $2,000,000 (up to 50% as Mantra stock).
President Joe Kizis commented, "The transaction with Mantra allows the Company to continue its core business of exploring its inventory of 13 mineral properties, and any future properties, directly and through option and joint-venture agreements with third-party companies, while benefitting from the sale of Wind Mountain for cash and stock in a new company run by experienced mining personnel that will focus its efforts on bringing the Wind Mountain gold and silver property back into production.
"Although significant new gold deposits have become increasingly rare worldwide, large and high-grade gold deposits continue to be discovered in Nevada, a safe and mine-friendly jurisdiction. Our extensive geologic expertise and critically selected land positions in Nevada's most prolific gold trends place Bravada in a strong position to make major new discoveries."
