TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 20, 2013) - A Special Meeting (the "Meeting") of shareholders of GALANTAS GOLD CORPORATION (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:GAL)(AIM:GAL) will be held on Thursday, January 16, 2014 at 10 a.m. (Toronto time) at the offices of Miller Thomson LLP, Scotia Plaza, 40 King Street West, Suite 5800, Toronto, Ontario, M5H 3S1.
At the Meeting, the shareholders will be asked to consider and, if deemed advisable, to pass a special resolution (the "Consolidation Resolution"), with or without variation, authorizing certain amendments to the Company's articles to consolidate (the "Share Consolidation") the Common Shares on such terms as may be approved by the directors of the Company and regulatory authorities on the basis of one (1) post-consolidated Common Share for up to ten (10) pre-consolidated Common Shares. The Consolidation Resolution authorizes the Company to complete the Share Consolidation, which is described in detail in an information circular being sent to shareholders and to be available on the Company's website www.galantas.com. It is expected that following an enactment of the Share Consolidation by the directors, if approved by the shareholders, directors and officers of the Company may convert approximately $1,500,000 outstanding remuneration that will be due as of December 31, 2013 into common shares, subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Shareholders will be informed of the Board's intention to undertake the consolidation, subject to shareholder approval of the Consolidation Resolution, if it chooses to do so, via a news release.
A funding arrangement of an increase of up to £100,000 to the existing debenture with G&F Phelps Ltd (the "Debenture") has been entered into.
