Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - September 20, 2021) - Galleon Gold Corp. (TSXV: GGO) (the "Company" or "Galleon Gold") announces that the Company will be extending the exercise period of a total of 1,000,000 share purchase warrants, all of which are exercisable at $0.12 per share (collectively, the "Warrants"). The Warrants were issued pursuant to a private placement which closed on September 24, 2019. The Company proposes to extend the expiry by one (1) year, and accordingly, the new expiry date for the warrants will be September 24, 2022.
All other terms and conditions of the Warrants remain unchanged. The Warrant extension is subject to acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.
A total of 1,000,000 Warrants are held by an insider of the Company. The extension of the Warrants therefore constitutes a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Shareholders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"), and TSV Policy 5.9 - Protection of Minority Shareholders Special Transactions. The Company is relying on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as the fair market value of the extension does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101. The Company does not intend to file a material change report in respect of the extension.
