Fabled Silver Gold Corp. ("Silver or Company") (TSXV:FCO; OTCQB: FBSGF, and FSE: 7NQ) is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors has unanimously approved a proposed spinout of its copper assets in northern British Columbia, referred to as the Muskwa Project, into Fabled Copper Corp. ("Copper" or "SpinCo") through a statutory plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement
Common shares of Copper (the "SpinCo Shares") will be distributed to shareholders of the Silver ("Shareholders") on the basis of one Copper share for every five common shares of Silver held. At the time the Arrangement becomes effective at the special Shareholders meeting, Shareholders will own shares in both companies, Silver and Copper.
The Company expects the Arrangement will increase shareholder value by allowing capital markets to ascribe value to Muskwa copper Project independent of the Company`s silver properties, referred to as the Santa Maria Project, in Mexico.
The spinout of Copper will provide shareholders an increase in flexibility as to their specific investment strategy at no cost and no risk profile, as Copper seeks to enable Shareholders to realize growth and returns from exploration investment though direct ownership in Copper and Copper`s properties.
The Company will continue to focus on advancing its drill program on the Santa Maria silver property in Mexico while Copper will seek to explore and develop the copper assets and thus unlock the value of the Muskwa Project. Concurrent with the Arrangement Fabled Copper will seek to be listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") at the conclusion of Arrangement.
"The approval from our board achieves a key milestone in our goal to create value for our shareholders. Copper as a standalone company will control a portfolio of promising advance exploration-stage copper properties in British Columbia, Canada and will provide them with the independent attention they deserve." said Peter Hawley, President and Chief Executive Officer of Silver. "The proposed spinout also allows us to add a new point of value creation for our shareholders, with the Company providing exposure to Silver in Mexico and Copper in Canada."
Further details on the Copper properties in British Columbia will be detailed in a future press release.
The Arrangement is contemplated to be carried out pursuant to the terms of an arrangement agreement to be governed by the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia). The Company will seek to apply for an interim order from the Supreme Court of British Columbia (the "Interim Order"), authorizing the Company to call a special meeting of Shareholders to approve the Arrangement. Shareholders will be asked to vote on the Arrangement at the special meeting of the shareholders (the "Meeting") to be arranged in due course.
