Signal Gold Inc.

TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / June 19, 2023 / Signal Gold Inc. ("Signal Gold" or the "Company") (TSX:SGNL)(OTCQX:SGNLF) is pleased to announce that it has signed a Share Purchase Agreement ("SPA") with Maritime Resources Corp. ("Maritime") for the sale of the Company's Point Rousse Project on the Baie Verte Peninsula in Newfoundland. Under the transaction, Maritime will acquire 100% of the common shares of Point Rousse Mining Inc. ("Point Rousse"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Signal Gold, which holds all related mineral licenses, fixed assets and equipment, liabilities, rights and obligations related to Point Rousse, including the fully permitted Pine Cove mill and in-pit tailings facility. On closing, which is expected in early July 2023, Signal Gold will receive $3,000,000 in cash and 23,970,218 common shares of Maritime with a value of approximately $1,000,000. As part of the SPA, Maritime shall also assume the related reclamation liabilities of Point Rousse.

"We are extremely pleased with the successful outcome of the strategic review process for the Company's Point Rousse Project in Newfoundland. We believe the combination of Point Rousse with Maritime's Hammerdown Project will generate significant value for all stakeholders, in particular the communities in the Baie Verte Peninsula, and we are pleased to be a shareholder of Maritime going forward. Upon closing of this transaction, Signal Gold will be able to focus exclusively on advancing the Goldboro Project in the historic high-grade Goldboro District in Nova Scotia."

~ Kevin Bullock, President and CEO, Signal Gold Inc.

The completion of the transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including Maritime obtaining the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and completing a concurrent financing, for which it has received executed commitment letters as part of the SPA.

Signal Gold will retain all rights and obligations related to the Tilt Cove Project, a prospective exploration-stage gold-copper project located within the Baie Verte Mining District, Newfoundland, with approximately 15,000 hectares of prospective mineral lands and 35 kilometres of high-potential strike length including the Nugget Pond Horizon, a geological unit that hosts the past producing, high-grade Nugget Pond Mine.


Signal Gold is advancing the Goldboro Gold Project in Nova Scotia, a significant growth project subject to a positive Feasibility Study which demonstrates an approximately 11-year open pit life of mine ("LOM") with average gold production of 100,000 ounces per annum and an average diluted grade of 2.26 grams per tonne gold. (Please see the ‘NI 43-101 Technical Report and Feasibility Study for the Goldboro Gold Project, Eastern Goldfields District, Nova Scotia' on January 11, 2022, for further details). On August 3, 2022, the Goldboro Project received its environmental assessment approval from the Nova Scotia Minister of Environment and Climate Change, a significant regulatory milestone which enables the Company to commence site-specific permitting processes including the Industrial Approval and Crown Land Lease and Mining Lease applications. The Goldboro Project also has potential for further Mineral Resource expansion, particularly towards the west along strike and at depth. A future study will consider upgrading and expanding potentially mineable underground Mineral Resources as part of the longer-term mine development plan.
