G2 Goldfields Clarifies “Due Bill” Trading Dates for Proposed Spin-Out of Sandy Lake Project
TORONTO, April 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — G2 Goldfields Inc. (“G2” or the “Company”) (TSXV:GTWO; OTCQX:GUYGF) wishes to clarify the dates for the “due bill” trading procedures set out in its news release dated March 31, 2021. In order to accommodate the trading and clearing requirements of the TSX Venture Exchange, the G2 common shares will commence trading on a “due bill” basis effective from the opening of markets on April 7, 2021 rather than April 8, 2021. The change was necessary since the proposed spin-out of the Company’s Sandy Lake property into a wholly-owned subsidiary of G2, S2 Minerals Inc. (“S2”), by a Plan of Arrangement under the Canada Business Corporations Act (the “Arrangement”) will have an effective time of 12:01 a.m. (Toronto time) on the closing date, which is expected on April 9, 2021. The other dates and details referred to in the news release dated March 31, 2021 remain unchanged.
