Transition Metals is up at CEO Clips.
Canadian Gold Miner Corp. (“CGM” or the “Company”) and Transition Metals Corp. (a 40% owner of CGM; XTM – TSX.V, “Transition”) are pleased to announce that CGM has today concluded a transaction with Osisko Mining Inc. (“Osisko”) to acquire the DeSantis property, a historical gold producer located in the heart of the Timmins Gold Camp, and an option on the Catharine Property, a large exploration land package near CGM’s focus area south of Kirkland Lake, Ontario in exchange for 2.5 million common shares of CGM valued at $0.20 per share. Concurrent with the transaction, Osisko also has completed a $1.0 million private placement in CGM consisting 5.0 million units priced at $0.20 with each unit consisting of a common share and a half common share purchase warrant exercisable at $0.35 for a period of two years.
Transition (V.XTM) CEO Scott McLean is very clear about the difference between a project generator and a junior explorer, “The big difference is that a traditional junior will raise money by diluting the shareholder’s equity to fund the advancement of one or two projects. Under the project generator business model, the Company holds multiple projects and the exploration is funded by a partner in return for a stake in a specific project. This model allows projects to be funded with minimal shareholder equity dilution. The approach leverages the investor’s exposure to the upside that can come from discovery in a manner that insulates the downside that can come from excessive shareholder dilution if results prove unfavourable”
