VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 4, 2013) - Medgold Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MED) announces that due to current market conditions, it has cancelled the private placement financing proposed in the Company's news release of September 16, 2013.
Based on comments received from potential participants in the cancelled financing, Medgold's Board of Directors believes that to facilitate future equity financings for the Company and to attract new business opportunities, it may be necessary to consolidate the share capital on the basis of one new share for up to three existing shares.
If a 1:3 consolidation were effected at the present time, the Company's issued capital of 52,416,078 common shares would be reduced to 17,472,026 common shares.
The share consolidation will be subject to acceptance for filing by the TSX Venture Exchange and to shareholder approval which will be requested at the Company's annual and special meeting to be held on November 27, 2013.
Medgold is aiming to become the leading Mediterranean-focused gold exploration and project development company, with an extensive portfolio and pipeline of projects across Portugal, Italy and Spain, targeting economically stressed, but politically stable European countries that are seeking foreign investment to invigorate the mining sector.
