NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
Global Minerals Ltd. ("Global" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CTG) is pleased to announce that it has received the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange to the consolidation of its issued and outstanding common shares on the basis of one new common share for every five common shares currently issued and outstanding. The Company's shares will commence trading on the TSX Venture Exchange on a consolidated basis on February 7, 2014. On a post-consolidation basis, there will be approximately 22,164,787 common shares issued and outstanding. The Company's name and trading symbol will remain the same.
In addition, the Company wishes to clarify its news release of January 22, 2014 in respect of an increase in the Company's previously announced non-brokered private placement of up to $3.5 million (the "Financing"). The Financing will be completed through the issuance of up to 14,000,000 units of the Company ("Units") at a price of $0.25 per Unit, and not up to 12,000,000 Units as previously disclosed. All other terms of the Financing remain unchanged.
The Financing is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval and all securities will be subject to a four month resale restriction.
The proceeds from the Financing will be used to further the development of the Strieborná project and for general working capital.
Strieborná is a high-grade silver-copper vein type deposit in an historic mining district near the town of Roznava in eastern Slovakia. It has excellent expansion potential over and above the already well-defined resource. Significant infrastructure at site include a working shaft and hoisting system, extensive underground access through a series of drifts, crosscuts and tunnels and associated surface facilities. Global is using all efforts to advance the property into commercial production.
