Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – July 16, 2021) – Aardvark Capital Corp. (TSXV: ACCA.P) (“Aardvark” or the “Company“) and 2766604 Ontario Ltd. (“GoldCo” or the “Target“) are pleased to announce that they have entered into a non-binding letter of intent dated July 15, 2021 (the “LOI“), pursuant to which Aardvark and GoldCo intend to complete a business combination or other similarly structured transaction which will constitute a reverse take-over of Aardvark (the “Transaction“). It is intended that the Transaction will be an arm’s length “Qualifying Transaction” for Aardvark, as such term is defined in Policy 2.4 – Capital Pool Companies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV“). The completion of the Transaction is targeted for the Fall of 2021.
GoldCo is a private company domiciled in Ontario which has the option to acquire a 100% interest in the “FAD Property” (the “Property”) located on the Eureka-Battle Mountain trend in Nevada, USA. The Property is host to the high-grade poly-metallic FAD Deposit that was partially delineated with surface and underground drilling in the 1940s and 1950s. There has been no modern-day exploration or drilling completed on the Property since the 1950s.
Nevada accounts for nearly 80% of annual gold production in the United States and was ranked as a tier one jurisdiction by the Fraser Institute. The Property is located less than 3 miles from Eureka, Nevada and has established infrastructure, including a shaft, roads and old buildings.
Aardvark is a Capital Pool Company (as defined in the policies of the TSXV) listed on the TSXV having been incorporated under the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) on January 29, 2021. Aardvark has no commercial operations and no assets other than cash.
There are no relationships between any non-arm’s length party of Aardvark and the Target or its assets, and the Transaction will be an arm’s length transaction.
Pursuant to the terms of the LOI, Aardvark and GoldCo are expected to negotiate with a view to entering into a binding definitive agreement (the “Definitive Agreement“) incorporating the principal terms of the Transaction as described in the LOI. The terms and conditions outlined in the LOI are non-binding on the parties, and the LOI is expected to be superseded by the Definitive Agreement. A comprehensive news release will be issued by Aardvark and GoldCo setting out the terms of the Transaction, which shall include information about Aardvark upon closing of the Transaction and a proposed financing to be undertaken by GoldCo in connection with the Transaction (the “Concurrent Financing“).
