TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / May 13, 2022 / AEX Gold Inc. (AIM:AEXG)(TSXV:AEX), an independent mining company with an unrivalled land package of gold and strategic mineral assets covering an area of 7,615.85km2 in Southern Greenland, announces that it intends to post its Annual Report and Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2021 and Notice of Annual and Special General Meeting of Shareholders ("Meeting") and Management Information Circular to shareholders today. Copies of the documents will be available on the Company's website https://www.aexgold.com/investors/documents-circulars/ and SEDAR at www.sedar.com
The Meeting will be held on Thursday, June 16, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. (Toronto time). Shareholders will not be able to attend the Meeting in person. Instead, registered shareholders and duly appointed proxyholders can participate, vote or submit questions at the virtual meeting.
Among the resolutions, shareholders will be asked to consider authorizing an amendment to the articles of the Corporation to change the name of the Corporation from "AEX Gold Inc." to "AMAROQ MINERALS Ltd." Management believes that the time is appropriate to re-brand the Corporation due to the Corporation's business now being recognised for both holding mineral licences in gold and also in strategic minerals. The name AEX Gold Inc. no longer reflects the Corporation's evolving business. "Amaroq" also means "Arctic Wolf' in Greenland reflecting the focus to be recognised foremost as a Greenlandic business. The name also works with the Corporation's existing logo and thus will require minimal costly rebranding.
The proposed name change is subject to certain regulatory approvals.
In addition to the above, shareholders will be voting:
- to receive and consider the financial statements of the Corporation for the financial year ended December 31, 2021 together with the report of the auditors thereon;
- to elect the directors of the Corporation and to appoint the auditor of the Corporation for the ensuing year;
- to consider the Corporation's stock option plan and restricted share unit plan.
