Evolving Gold Corp. (CSE: EVG) (FSE: EV7) (OTCB: EVOGF) (the “Company” or “EVG”) announces that it has executed a definitive agreement to acquire Bocana Resources Ltd. (“Bocana”), a private company with mineral property interests in South America. Bocana will amalgamate with EVG, and the shareholders of Bocana will receive post-consolidated shares of EVG. In conjunction with the amalgamation, EVG will continue federally under the Canada Business Corporations Act, and will consolidate its outstanding shares on a 3 for 2 basis. The agreement is subject to the approval of the shareholders of both EVG and Bocana.
The acquisition of Bocana constitutes a “fundamental change” for EVG under CSE policies. The common shares of EVG are currently halted on the CSE, and the Company does not expect its shares will resume trading again until the transaction has been accepted by the CSE. EVG intends to call a special meeting of its shareholders to approve the acquisition in conjunction with its Annual General Meeting, which is expected to be held prior to the end of 2018.
About Bocana’s South American Prospects
Bocana, through its wholly owned subsidiaries, currently holds and anticipates securing a 100% interest in several new mineral concessions in South America. These concessions are currently being negotiated and finalized with the respective governmental and regulatory entities that issue these agreements. Full disclosure of Bocana’s mineral property interests will be provided upon settlement of all concessions.
