SolidusGold Inc. Announces Spinout Transaction

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 7, 2014) - SolidusGold Inc. ("SolidusGold" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SDC) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an arrangement agreement (the "Arrangement Agreement") with Mantra Mining Inc. ("Mantra") to give effect to a spinout of the Honeymoon Property, British Columbia. Mantra is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company incorporated for the purpose of completing the Arrangement.

The Arrangement Agreement, a copy of which has been filed on SEDAR, sets out the terms of an arrangement (the "Arrangement") to be conducted by way of a statutory plan of arrangement involving SolidusGold, its securityholders and Mantra.

The spinout transaction, if completed, will result in:

  • Mantra holding the Company's interest in the Honeymoon Property, an early stage gold-silver-copper exploration property optioned by the Company in August 2013 and located on the west side of Adams Lake, British Columbia, approximately 85 km northeast of Kamloops, British Columbia;

  • shareholders of SolidusGold as at the effective date of the Arrangement receiving one (1) Mantra common share for every one (1) SolidusGold common share held; and

  • the stock options of the Company outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Date being adjusted by increasing the number of shares issuable upon exercise, and reducing the exercise price per share, of such stock options.

SolidusGold will continue to hold its interest in the Wind Mountain Property. SolidusGold will seek shareholder approval of the Arrangement, among other things, at the upcoming annual general and special meeting scheduled to be held on December 10, 2014. The Arrangement will also be subject to, among other things, approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and the Supreme Court of British Columbia.

Full details of the proposed spinout will be contained in a notice of meeting and information circular describing the Arrangement, which will be mailed to shareholders and filed on SEDAR in due course.
