Pacton Vends Remaining 25% in Certain Pilbara Properties
Vancouver, British Columbia, April 22, 2021 – Pacton Gold Inc. (TSXV: PAC, OTC: PACXF, FSE: 2NKN) (the “Company” or “Pacton”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement to vend the remaining 25% interest it holds in three of its properties within its Western Australian Pilbara portfolio. The Company has entered into an asset sale agreement (the “Agreement”) with Pilbara Gold Corporation Pty Ltd (“PGC”) and Raiden Resources Limited, whereby PGC agrees to purchase 25% of the Arrow, Yandicoogina and Boodalyerrie gold properties (the “Properties”) (Figure 1).
Raiden Resources Limited, an Australian Stock Exchange listed company (ASX: RDN) (“Raiden”), recently acquired all the issued shares of PGC. Raiden will assume the consideration under the Agreement on behalf of PGC as the parent entity.
The Company completed the sale of a 75% interest in the Properties to the same parties in February 2021 (see Pacton news releases dated October 13, 2020 and February 16, 2021).
Consideration under the Agreement is as follows:
- payment of A$200,000 to Pacton; and
- issuance to Pacton of fully paid ordinary shares in the capital of Raiden valued at A$1,000,000, based on the volume weighted average price of Raiden’s shares over 20 consecutive trading days from execution of the Agreement.
Nav Dhaliwal, Pacton’s interim CEO commented, “As part of our increasing focus on our active projects in the Red Lake gold rush in Ontario, we have agreed to divest some of our Western Australia gold projects. As a substantial shareholder of Raiden Resources – the purchaser - Pacton will retain an indirect interest in all three projects, and we wish Raiden’s team every success as they explore and advance these highly prospective properties.”
