TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / NOVEMBER 19, 2020 / AEX Gold Inc. (AIM:AEXG)(TSXV:AEX), an independent gold company with a portfolio of gold licences in Greenland, announces its unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements ("Financial Statements") for the quarter ended September 30, 2020. All figures are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted.

The Financial Statements and the accompanying Management Discussion and Analysis are available on the Corporation's website at www.aexgold.com and will be filed under the Corporation's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com later today.

Financial Highlights

  • The Corporation reported a net loss of $4.6 million in Q3 2020 (Q3 2019: $2.6 million), driven by increased exploration and evaluation activities and corporate activity during the period, as well as non-cash foreign exchange loss.
  • Exploration and evaluation expenses during the quarter were $2.9 million (Q3 2019: $1.8 million), driven by increased activity on the Nalunaq Property and its regional exploration portfolio.
  • General and administrative expenses during the quarter were $1.1 million (Q3 2019: $0.2 million), with the increase a result of higher management, consulting and professional fees associated with its AIM listing and as the Corporation moves towards development at Nalunaq.
  • On July 31, 2020, the Corporation completed its AIM Admission in addition to its existing TSX-V listing, with the issue of 94,444,445 common shares at a price of GBP 0.45 ($0.77) per share for an equity placing raising gross proceeds of $74.6 million.
  • The Corporation had a cash balance of $68.7 million at September 30, 2020 ($1.5 million at December 31, 2019), with no debt, and total working capital of $67.5 million ($1.2 million at December 31, 2019).

Operational and Corporate Highlights

  • The Corporation successfully managed the mobilization and demobilization of a small crew based at Nalunaq from August to the end of October to accomplish key activities at Nalunaq and the other exploration licenses. The procedure for mitigating the risks related to COVID-19 proved to be effective, and the local authorities were very supportive.
  • The 2020 surface drilling program at Nalunaq commenced during the period in August and was finalized following the end of the period, in the second half of October, with eleven drill holes for a total of 2,191 metres drilled. The Main Vein was identified in six of the eleven holes drilled, with some of the intersects yielding the thickest interceptions (1.50 meters) ever recorded at Nalunaq. Initial results from the drilling were announced on October 21, 2020, and the remaining results will be reported when received during Q4 2020.
  • Terms of Reference of the environmental impact assessment ("EIA") and social impact assessment ("SIA") have been accepted by the authorities in October 2020 and will now progress to public consultation.
  • A business readiness program was continued internally during the period as the Corporation increases its overall readiness for transitioning towards project execution, including human resources, recruiting, environmental and social impact assessment scoping, organizational structuring, project and cost control, and accounting.
  • During the period, the Corporation conducted exploration activities over the exploration licence areas, as well as its wider regional portfolio, as part of the 2020 summer work program announced on August 24, 2020 and the results of these exploration activities will be announced as soon as received in Q4 2020.
  • On July 27, 2020, the Corporation appointed Sigurbjorn ("Siggi") Thorkelsson as an independent non-executive director of the Corporation and Chair of the Audit and Risk Committee. Mr. Thorkelsson brings a wealth of experience in the financial markets, having worked at major financial institutions throughout his career.

Post Period-End

  • Early in November 2020, the Corporation was granted an addendum to the Anoritooq Licence, increasing the size of the licence to 1,889km2.
  • Following the period end, the Corporation was granted one new Mineral Exploration Licence in South Greenland, namely Kangerluarsuk, covering an area totalling 335km2, taking the Corporations full license area to 3,870km2.

Eldur Olafsson, CEO of AEX, commented:

"I'm pleased to announce our third quarter 2020 financial results, which demonstrate the significant increase in activity across our portfolio as our business transitions towards development.

"Following the successful $72.7 million fundraise and AIM listing in July 2020, the Company was able to leverage its strong cash balance and the remaining months of Greenlandic autumn to front-end surface drilling initially planned for 2021.

"Furthermore, the launch of the request for proposal process for underground development contractors, and front-end engineering and surface drilling all provided significant advancement to the project during Q3 and puts us in an excellent position ahead of our onsite development activities in 2021.

"We look forward to providing updates to the market on our many exciting workstreams in due course."

AEX Gold Inc.
Condensed Notes to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements
Three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019
(Unaudited, in Canadian Dollars)

1. NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

AEX Gold Inc. (the "Corporation") was incorporated on February 22, 2017 under the Canada Business Corporations Act. The Corporation's head office is situated at 3400, One First Canadian Place, P.O. Box 130, Toronto, Ontario, M5X 1A4, Canada. The Corporation operates in one industry segment, being the acquisition, exploration and development of mineral properties. It owns interests in properties located in Greenland. The Corporation's financial year ends on December 31. Since July 2017, the Corporation's shares are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX-V") under the AEX ticker and since July 2020, the Corporation's shares are also listed on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange ("AIM") under the AEXG ticker (note 5).

These unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 ("Financial Statements") were approved by the Board of Directors on November 18, 2020.

1.1 Basis of presentation

The Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB") including International Accounting Standard ("IAS") 34, Interim Financial Reporting. The Financial Statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention.

The Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the annual financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2019 which have been prepared in accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB. The accounting policies, methods of computation and presentation applied in these Financial Statements are consistent with those of the previous financial year ended December 31, 2019.

During the first three quarters of 2020, an outbreak of a new strain of coronavirus (COVID-19) resulted in a major global health crisis which continues to have impacts on the global economy and the financial markets at the date of completion of the Financial Statements. These events may cause significant changes on the Corporation's ability to complete planned exploration and evaluation activities in the future, meet its other obligations and existing commitments for the exploration and evaluation programs or our ability to obtain debt and equity financing. Following these events, the Corporation has taken and will continue to take action to minimize the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, it is impossible to ultimately determine the financial implications of these events.

2. CRITICAL ACCOUNTING JUDGMENTS AND ASSUMPTIONS

The preparation of the Financial Statements requires Management to make judgments and form assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the Financial Statements and reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period. On an ongoing basis, Management evaluates its judgments in relation to assets, liabilities and expenses. Management uses historical experience and various other factors it believes to be reasonable under the given circumstances as the basis for its judgments. Actual outcomes may differ from these estimates under different assumptions and conditions.

In preparing the Financial Statements, the significant judgements made by Management in applying the Corporation accounting policies and the key sources of estimation uncertainty were the same as those that applied to the Corporation's audited annual financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2019. Estimates and assumptions are continually evaluated and are based on historical experience and other factors, including expectations of future events that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances.

7. STOCK OPTIONS

An incentive stock option plan (the "Plan") was approved initially in 2017 and renewed by shareholders on June 17, 2020. The Plan is a "rolling" plan whereby a maximum of 10% of the issued shares at the time of the grant are reserved for issue under the Plan to executive officers and directors, employees and consultants. The Board of directors attributes the stock options and the exercise price of the options shall not be less than the closing price on the last trading day preceding the grant date. The options have a maximum term of ten years. Options granted pursuant to the Plan shall vest and become exercisable at such time or times as may be determined by the Board, except options granted to consultants providing investor relations activities shall vest in stages over a 12 month period with a maximum of one-quarter of the options vesting in any three-month period. The Corporation has no legal or constructive obligation to repurchase or settle the options in cash.

On June 17, 2020, the Corporation granted to its directors, officers and consultants 2,195,000 stock options exercisable at an exercise price of $0.70, with an expiry date of December 31, 2026. The stock options vested 100% at the grant date. Those options were granted at an exercise price equal to the closing market value of the shares the previous day of the grant. Total stock-based compensation costs amount to $1,031,650 for an estimated fair value of $0.47 per option. The fair value of the options granted was estimated using the Black-Scholes model with no expected dividend yield, 76.41% expected volatility, 0.41% risk-free interest rate and 6.5 years options expected life. The expected life and expected volatility were estimated by benchmarking comparable companies to the Corporation.
