October 25, 2021
October 25, 2021, Toronto, Canada – African Gold Group, Inc. (TSX-V: AGG, OTCQX: AGGFF, FRA: 3A61) (“AGG” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement financing of up to 25,000,000 units (a “Unit”) at a price of $0.14 per unit for gross proceeds of up to $3,500,000 (the “Offering”). Each unit will consist of one common share of the Company and one half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant a “Warrant”).
Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one additional common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.25 for a period of 24 months from issuance. If at any time after four months and one day from the closing of the Offering, the common shares of the Company trade at $0.50 per common share or higher (on a volume weighted adjusted basis) for a period of 10 consecutive days, the Company will have the right to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is 30 days after the Company issues a news release announcing that it has elected to exercise this acceleration right.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to advance its flagship Kobada Gold Project (the “Project” or “Kobada”) in Southern Mali and to continue to pursue corporate options.
Closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about November 5, 2021. In connection with the Offering, a finder’s fee may be payable in line with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a statutory hold period of four-months and one day. Completion of the Offering is subject to a number of conditions, including without limitation, receipt of TSXV approval.
The Company would like to announce that John Begeman and Hon. Pierre Pettigrew have resigned from the board of directors of the Company. They will continue as consultants on an as-required basis and will maintain their existing options awards to expiry.
“I would like to thank John and Pierre for their contributions to the Company over the last few years. Both John and Pierre have been valuable members of the Board and I wish them well in their future endeavours” commented Danny Callow, CEO of African Gold Group.
