VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Red Eagle Mining Corporation (TSX:R) (BVL:R) (OTCQX:RDEMF) and Red Eagle Exploration Limited (TSXV:XR) announce that Red Eagle Exploration has received the required approval from its shareholders for the Amalgamation Agreement dated March 2, 2018 pursuant to which Red Eagle Mining will acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Red Eagle Exploration Limited (“XR”) not already owned by it by way of a three-cornered amalgamation (“Amalgamation”). Under the terms of the Amalgamation, XR shareholders will receive one (1) common share of Red Eagle Mining for every two (2) XR common shares (“XR Shares”) held.
The Amalgamation Agreement was approved by 100% of the votes cast by XR shareholders at the meeting, including 100% of disinterested shareholders who voted as required by Multilateral Instrument 61-101. Closing of the Amalgamation is subject to receipt of the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange on the part of XR. The companies expect that closing will occur shortly, at which time XR will be delisted from the TSX Venture Exchange.
Beneficial Shareholders (shareholders who hold XR Shares through a bank, broker, investment dealer or other intermediary) do not need to undertake any further actions. Registered Shareholders (shareholders who hold XR Shares directly and are represented by a certificate) should tender their shares by delivering to Computershare (a) certificates representing the Shares to be tendered and (b) a properly completed and executed letter of transmittal (the “Letter of Transmittal”). The Letter of Transmittal was included in the management information circular of XR dated March 2, 2018 prepared in connection with the special meeting and filed on SEDAR by XR and mailed to XR shareholders.
The combination of Red Eagle Mining and XR will create a strong exploration, development and operating company with four 100% owned high grade gold and silver projects in Colombia. The combined company will continue operating the producing Santa Rosa Gold Project and will be able to develop the Vetas Gold, California Gold and Santa Ana Silver Properties currently held by XR. The Amalgamation will complete the acquisition of XR (formerly known as CB Gold Inc.) by Red Eagle Mining and will simplify the holding structure and reduce costs of the two companies.
