In response to feedback received from shareholders, the Company did not submit before the AGM resolutions to approve the Supplemental Loan Framework Agreement or the New Financial Services Agreement.
Each of the Supplemental Contract for Purchase and Sale of Dore and the Supplemental Product and Service Framework Agreement constitute "related party transactions" for purposes of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Securityholders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). Pursuant to MI 61-101, related party transactions are subject to formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements unless an exemption is available. The minority shareholder approval requirements are similar to those set out in the rules of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, so since minority shareholder approval was received at the AGM, the Company has not considered applied exemptions which would be available under MI 61-101. Each of the Supplemental Contract for Purchase and Sale of Dore and the Supplemental Product and Service Framework Agreement are exempt from the valuation requirements of MI 61-101. The Supplemental Contract for Purchase and Sale of Dore is exempt pursuant to section 5.5(d) of MI 61-101 as it constitutes the sale of inventory of the Company in the ordinary course of business. The Supplemental Product and Service Framework Agreement is comprised of several components. The mining service component is not contemplated under MI 61-101 as constituting a related party transaction. The sale of copper concentrate is exempt pursuant to section 5.5(d) of MI 61-101 as it constitutes the sale of inventory in the ordinary course of business. The mining equipment product sale component is exempt as it is excluded from the definition of a related party transaction under MI 61-101 because under section (b) of the definition of a related party transaction, purchases of equipment from third parties only constitute a related party transaction if the proportion of the ownership interest is not equal to the proportion of the asset acquired from the third party. In the case of the Supplemental Product and Service Framework Agreement, the Company leverages the buying power of China National Gold to procure better pricing for mining equipment than it would be able to on its own.
