(TSXV: C) (the "Company" or "Contact Gold") is pleased to announce that it has filed a preliminary short form base shelf prospectus (the "Shelf Prospectus") with the securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces and territories of Canada, except Québec.
The Shelf Prospectus has not yet become final for the purpose of the sale of any Securities (as defined herein). Upon a final short form base shelf prospectus becoming effective, these filings will, subject to securities regulatory requirements, enable Contact Gold to make offerings of up to $30 million of any combination of common shares, debt securities, subscription receipts, units and warrants (all of the foregoing, collectively, the "Securities") during the 25-month period that the Shelf Prospectus, including any amendments thereto, remains valid. The nature, size and timing of any such financings (if any) will depend, in part, on Contact Gold's assessment of its requirements for funding and general market conditions. Unless otherwise specified in a prospectus supplement relating to a particular offering of Securities, the net proceeds from any sale of any Securities is expected to be used to advance Contact Gold's business objectives and for general corporate purposes, including funding ongoing operations and/or working capital requirements, repaying indebtedness outstanding from time to time, discretionary capital programs and potential future acquisitions. The specific terms of any future offering of Securities will be established in a prospectus supplement to the Shelf Prospectus, which supplement will be filed with the applicable Canadian securities regulatory authorities. The Company has filed this Shelf Prospectus to maintain financial flexibility but has no immediate intentions to undertake an offering.
