Kelowna, British Columbia – June 16, 2022 - Golden Ridge Resources Ltd. (“Golden Ridge” or “the Company”) (TSXV: GLDN) announces further to its news release of June 10, 2022 it has received consent from the TSX Venture Exchange to extend the expiry date of 6,984,167 outstanding share purchase warrants that were issued pursuant to a private placement completed in July 2020 (the “2020 Warrants”). As previously announced the 2020 Warrants were to expire July 24, 2022. The new expiry date for the 2020 Warrants is July 24, 2023 (the “New Expiry Date”). Each 2020 Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share (a "Common Share") in the capital of the Company at a price of $0.25 per Common Share until the New Expiry Date.
The 2020 Warrants do not include 205,559 warrants that were issued to finders or agents which shall expire on July 24, 2022.
Certain of the 2020 Warrants are held by parties who are considered to be related parties of the company. Therefore, the amendment of the related party warrants constitutes a related party transaction as contemplated by Multilateral Instrument 61-101 -- Protection of Minority Shareholders in Special Transactions, and TSX-V Policy 5.9 -- Protection of Minority Shareholders in Special Transactions. However, the exemptions from formal valuation and minority approval requirements provided for by these guidelines can be relied upon because neither the fair market value of the related party warrants nor the fair market value of the consideration paid for the related party warrants exceeds 25% of the market capitalization of the Company.
Holders of warrants will not receive an amended warrant certificate, and will be required to submit their original warrant certificate in order to exercise warrants.
