Transaction Highlights

  • Potential Near-Term Gold Production: Based on a prefeasibility study1 conducted in February 2023 by TML, the Goliath Gold Complex Project (the “GGC Project”) is poised for production with a forecasted 13-year mine life. It anticipates producing 109,000 ounces of gold annually at a cash cost1 of US$892 per ounce and an all-in sustaining cost (AISC)2 of US$1,037 per ounce during the first nine years. The prefeasibility study projected a net present value (NPV) of $493 million at a 5% discount rate, and an internal rate of return (IRR) of 33.5% based on a gold price of US$1,950 per ounce. The project benefits from readily available world class infrastructure and has secured a Federal Environmental Assessment approval. The final feasibility study and permitting processes are currently underway.
  • Strong Financial Position:  The balance sheet will be fortified with a combined cash position of more than C$10 million, plus a proposed concurrent flow-through financing for aggregate gross proceeds of up to approximately $6.4 million to be completed by TML prior the completion of the Arrangement.
  • Enhance Capital Markets Focus: New capital markets strategy to be led by cornerstone investor Frank Giustra complements significant expertise in mine permitting, construction, operations, and exploration to create value for shareholders.
  • Renewed Exploration Commitment: Exploration efforts are expected to be intensified with the Dryden, Ontario district, focusing on expanding the current mineral resource area. An experienced team will oversee these efforts, aiming to simultaneously advance development and exploration, maximizing dual-track value realization.
  • Growth and Consolidation Strategy: The companies are actively pursuing a proactive strategy to assess and undertake strategic acquisitions, aiming to accelerate growth and strengthen its industry position.
  • Strong Proven Management Team: The combined company’s management team will draw on the proven track record of both companies, with a combined skill set of mining development, operations, finance, exploration and community relations experience.

2 Cash cost and AISC are non-GAAP financial measures and have no standardized meaning under International Financial Reporting Standards and may not be comparable to similar measures used by other issuers. As the GGC Project is not in production, TML does not have historical non-GAAP financial measures nor historical comparable measures under IFRS, and therefore the foregoing prospective non-GAAP financial measures may not be reconciled to the nearest comparable measures under IFRS. See "Non-IFRS Measures" in TML’s management's discussion and analysis for the year ended December 31, 2023 for further details.

Meeting Information

The Meeting will be held at the office of DuMoulin Black LLP, 15th Floor of 1111 West Hastings Street, Vancouver, British Columbia on Wednesday, June 26, 2024 at 10:00 a.m. (Vancouver time), where Voting Securityholders will be asked to consider and vote on the Arrangement.
