Completion of the private placement and the payment of any finder’s fees remain subject to the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Cabral may pay a cash finder’s fee equivalent to up to 6% of the gross proceeds of the private placement and issue share purchase warrants (the “Finder’s Warrants”) to finder’s equivalent to up to 6% of the number of common shares included in the private placement. Each Finder’s Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a purchase price of $0.25 for a period of up to 24 months following closing of the private placement.
The participation of Cabral’s officers and directors in the private placement will constitute a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The transaction is exempt from the formal valuation requirements of MI 61-101 pursuant to section 5.5(a) as the fair market value of the officers’ and directors’ participation will not be more than 25% of the Company’s market capitalization. The transaction is also exempt from the minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 by virtue of section 5.7(1)(b) thereof as the fair market value of the shares to be distributed to, or the consideration paid by, the officers and directors will not exceed $2,500,000.
About Cabral Gold Inc.
Cabral is a junior resource company engaged in the identification, exploration and development of mineral properties, with a primary focus on gold properties located in Brazil. The Company owns the Cuiú Cuiú gold project, which covers the largest of the historical placer gold camps in the Tapajós region of northern Brazil, having yielded an estimated 2MMoz of gold from the overall 20-30MMoz gold produced during the Tapajós gold rush. Placer workings cover over 850ha on the property but are largely exhausted. The few remaining artisanal workers now process gold from palaeo-valley placer deposits and in places exploit highgrade gold mineralization from quartz veins in saprolite (shallow highly weathered bedrock). Earlier this year, Cabral reported an updated NI 43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate totalling 5.9MM tonnes grading 0.9 g/t Au (Indicated) and 19.5MM tonnes grading 1.2 g/t Au (Inferred), or 0.2MM ounces and 0.8MM ounces of gold, respectively. That estimate was based on four deposits drilled prior to the cessation of exploration in 2012. The Company’s current program is designed to improve understanding and expand existing prospects, evaluate newly identified discoveries, prioritize drill targets, and to build upon the existing resource inventory.
