REPEAT – EnviroGold Global Closes First Tranche of Private Placement

TORONTO, June 09, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EnviroGold Global Limited (CSE: NVRO | OTCQB: ESGLF | FSE: YGK) (“EnviroGold,” or the “Company”), a technology company enabling the global mining industry to monetize valuable metals contained in mine waste and tailings, reduce environmental liabilities and improve social and environmental outcomes, is pleased to announce that it has closed the first tranche of the previously announced non-brokered private placement and issued 14,600,000 units (the “Units”) at a price of $0.05 per Unit for aggregate proceeds of C$730,000 (the “Financing”). Each Unit consists of one common share (each a “Common Share”) and one warrant (each a “Warrant”) exercisable to acquire one additional Common Share at a price of $0.08 until April 30, 2026.

The Company anticipates closing a second tranche of the Financing on or before July 15, 2024, as it anticipates further participation from investors.

The proceeds from the Financing will be used to accelerate the establishment of the NVRO Clean Leach Process demonstration facility in Brisbane, Australia, to advance customer relationships, and for general operating expenses.

The Company’s CEO, Mr. David Cam said, “I would like to thank our investors for their continued support at what is an exciting time for the Company. We look forward to providing regular updates as we move towards the commercialization of the NVRO Clean Leach Process technology later this year.”

As part of the Financing, the Company settled $500,000 of the purchase price of the NVRO Clean Leach Process demonstration unit by way of the issuance of 10,000,000 Units to the Company’s equipment supplier.

All securities issued in connection with the Financing are subject to a statutory hold period of four months and a day from issuance pursuant to applicable securities laws of Canada. No finder’s fees were paid on the Financing.

Certain directors of the Company participated in the Financing for an aggregate total of $150,000. The participation by such insiders is considered a “related-party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company has relied on exemptions from the formal 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 in respect of related party participation in the Financing as neither the fair market value (as determined under MI 61-101) of the subject matter of, nor the fair market value of the consideration for, the transaction, insofar as it involved the related parties, exceeded 25% of the Company’s market capitalization (as determined under MI 61-101).

The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the Financing as the details of the participation therein by related parties of the Company were not settled until shortly prior to closing of the Financing and the Company wished to close on an expedited basis for sound business reasons.

In addition, the Company announces that it proposes to amend the expiry date of an aggregate of 6,218,095 outstanding Warrants that were previously extended on February 27, 2023, to expire on October 22, 2024. The Warrants were issued on April 6, 2022, April 8, 2022, and April 22, 2022, pursuant to a multi-tranche private placement of Units. Each Warrant currently entitles the holder thereof to purchase one additional Common Share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.48 at any time prior to 5:00 p.m. (Vancouver time) on October 22, 2024 (the “Expiry Date”). The further extended Expiry Date of the Warrants will be on October 22, 2026. All other terms of the Warrants will remain unchanged.
