Newrange Gold Corp. (“Newrange” or the “Company”) (TSXV:NRG) is pleased to announce that, further to its News Release dated November 4, 2019, it has closed the sale of a 100% interest in the Yarumalito Gold Project (“Yarumalito” or the “Project”) located in central Colombia to GoldMining Inc. (“GoldMining”).
“We are pleased to have closed this sale with GoldMining as it now paves the way for us to conclude the sale of Newrange’s subsidiary and remaining projects in Colombia, as announced on June 5 and September 5, 2019,” stated Robert Archer, Newrange CEO. “By monetizing our Colombian assets, we are providing significant non-dilutive funds for exploration on the Company’s flagship Pamlico Project in Nevada.”
Pursuant to the Agreement, a wholly owned subsidiary of GoldMining has acquired the Yarumalito Project and related assets from a wholly owned subsidiary of Newrange. Total consideration paid by GoldMining to Newrange under the transaction was: (i) $1,200,000, paid in common shares of GoldMining (the “GoldMining Shares”); and (ii) $200,000, paid in cash. The issue price of the share consideration was based on the volume-weighted average price of the GoldMining Shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange for the five trading days prior to closing, or $1.07. 1,118,359 shares were issued in this part of the transaction. The GoldMining Shares issued under the transaction are subject to a four month and one day hold period and certain additional resale restrictions pursuant to the terms of the Agreement.
Newrange will retain a 1% net smelter returns royalty, which can be purchased by GoldMining at any time before the completion of a feasibility study on the Project for total consideration of $1,000,000.
The transaction is subject to final stock exchange approvals.
