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.

Completion of the Arrangement is subject to a number of conditions, including the following:

  • the Company obtaining the requisite approval of its shareholders at the Meeting;
  • approval of the Supreme Court of British Columbia;
  • approval of Arrangement by the Exchange
  • Exchange approval of the listing of the Copper shares upon compilation of the Arrangement; and
  • completion of a private placement by Copper to raise gross proceeds of up to $6,000,000, consisting of a mixture of common shares and flow through common shares.

Further details of the Arrangement will follow by additional press releases and in an Information Circular, which will be mailed to Shareholders in advance of the Meeting following receipt of the Interim Order. Shareholders are cautioned that there can be no assurance that the Arrangement will be completed on the terms described herein or at all.

Anticipated Private Placement.

In connection with the Arrangement, Copper will seek to complete a private placement or placements for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $6,000,000 (`Private Placement`). Further details on the Private Placement, will be provided in due course, once available, by way of press release.

Top 10 Central Bank Gold Holdings (Updated 2022)

Top 10 Central Bank Gold Holdings (Updated 2022)

Global central bank gold reserves top 35,500 metric tons (MT), approximately one-fifth of all the gold ever mined. The vast majority of central bank gold holdings were acquired in the last decade, when national banks became net buyers of the yellow metal.

Central banks purchase gold for a number of reasons: to mitigate risk, to hedge against inflation and to promote economic stability. In its most recent annual survey released in June 2022, the World Gold Council (WGC) said that 61 percent of central bankers expect global gold reserves to increase over the next 12 months. Nearly three-quarters of respondents cited the precious metal’s “long-term store of value” as a guiding factor in gold purchases.

Central banks added 463 MT of gold to their vaults in 2021, signaling a significant turnaround in demand after the 255 MT decade low experienced in 2020.

Adrian Day: Recession, Stagflation, Crash? Where We're Going, What it Means for Goldyoutu.be

The US Federal Reserve hiked interest rates by 75 basis points last week in its ongoing fight against inflation, amping up its efforts to tame prices and leaving market watchers wondering what's next.

Speaking just ahead of the central bank's meeting, Adrian Day, president of Adrian Day Asset Management, said usually the Fed starts out hawkish and then backs off. But this time around the opposite is happening.

This is due to various factors, but US President Joe Biden's recent meeting with Fed Chair Jerome Powell is among them — in their discussion, Biden expressed that inflation is the Fed's responsibility.
