Vancouver, British Columbia, June 17, 2022 – Golden Spike Resources Corp. (CSE:GLDS) (“Golden Spike” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a non binding letter of intent (“LOI”) with Golden Horizon Exploration Corp. (“Golden Horizon”) in order to acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of Golden Horizon (the “Proposed Transaction”). In connection therewith, the shareholders of Golden Horizon will receive one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Golden Spike Share”) for each common share of Golden Horizon held, resulting in the Company issuing an aggregate of 11,300,000 Golden Spike Shares (which will represent approximately 35.76% of the issued and outstanding Golden Spike Shares). Pursuant to the terms of the LOI, the parties have agreed to proceed with the good faith negotiation and execution of a draft definitive agreement that will set out all of the terms of the Proposed Transaction (the “Definitive Agreement”).
Golden Spike CEO Keith Anderson commented, “We are very excited to have signed this LOI to acquire Golden Horizon and thereby acquire a 100% interest in its Gregory River Property, a mineral exploration property located in a very prospective mineral belt in one of the more favourable jurisdictions worldwide. Many parts of Newfoundland, including the Gregory River Property still remain relatively underexplored and offer an exciting opportunity for new discoveries. In addition, the province offers a favorable regulatory environment and supportive communities with near year-round operating conditions and excellent nearby infrastructure. We look forward to completing our due diligence and entering into a definitive agreement with Golden Horizon shortly thereafter and providing a very exciting opportunity for Golden Spike shareholders.”
Golden Spike will have the right to conduct a full due diligence investigation on Golden Horizon and Golden Horizon will have the right to conduct a full due diligence investigation on Golden Spike for a period of sixty days commencing on the signing of the LOI. There can be no assurance that the Proposed Transaction will be completed on the terms proposed in the LOI or at all.
Upon the execution of a Definitive Agreement between the Company and Golden Horizon, the Company will issue a subsequent press release disclosing the material terms and conditions of the Proposed Transaction.
Gregory River Project
Golden Horizon owns 100% interest, right and title to the Gregory River property (the “Gregory River Property” or the “Property”) comprised of 124 claims under 15 mineral licences, covering 3,100 hectares or 7,660 acres. The Property is located on the western portion of the island of Newfoundland, approximately 14 Kilometres (“km”) south of the community of Trout River and 40 km northwest of Corner Brook.
The Gregory River Property is situated within the Bay of Islands Ophiolite Complex of rocks. The package consists of a sequence of faulted and moderately deformed ultramafic to mafic intrusive rocks, sheeted diabase dikes, basaltic pillow lavas, and narrow zones of sedimentary rocks.
Historical work on the Property has identified numerous high priority gold and base metal anomalies and untested targets within the claim package that can be intermittently traced within the Property for approximately 12 km along a north-northeast trend. Based on the historical work, the Property has the potential to host multiple known deposit types and styles of mineralization, including: 1. Copper-rich, Cyprus style - volcanic massive sulfides or VMS, 2. Stratigraphic gold-rich exhalative zones, 3. Structurally-controlled gold and sulfide-rich quartz lode veining, and 4. Low sulphidation epithermal gold style deposits.
The style of mineralization and geological setting identified at the Gregory River Property is highly analogous, and along a north-northwest trend to the York Harbor Metals Inc. copper and zinc-rich VMS mineralization that occurs approximately 37 km to the south, within the southern portion of Bay of Islands Ophiolite Complex of rocks.
