Goldshore Announces strategic partner and Private Placement for Moss Lake

Nov 2, 2023

Goldshore Resources has announced a non-brokered private placement of $3,750,000. In connection with Private Placement, the company will issue the following securities:

(i) 37,500,000 units of the Company ("Units") at a price of $0.10 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one common share (each, a "Common Share") and one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"); and

(ii) Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share (a "Warrant Share") at an exercise price of $0.13 per Warrant Share for thirty-six (36) months from the date of closing.

Fully Funded Through 2025 

The net proceeds from the Private Placement will be used to continue to advance the Moss Gold Project through development of a new resource model and a new mineral resource estimation ("MRE"); in addition to continuing the engineering and metallurgical studies being done on various leach methodologies (including heap leach) and ultimately factoring this new information into a preliminary economic assessment ("PEA"). With 80,000 meters of drilling completed and $48 million spent directly in the ground defining the current MRE; Goldshore is well positioned to achieve meaningful project milestones over the next 24 months with minimal cash expenditures and within the net proceeds and current cash balances of the Company. 

Strategic Partnership 

The Company announces that it has engaged with a strategic natural resources private capital group (the "Strategic Advisor") participating, in aggregate, in the Private Placement for $3,000,000 or 30,000,000 Units, with a long-term financial commitment to unlocking the value of the Moss Gold Project and delivering increased return to all stakeholders. 

Board Changes

The Company also announces that Michael Michaud has stepped down from the Board as an appointee of Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd. ("Wesdome"). Wesdome has advised that it does not intend to nominate a replacement at this time. Kyle Hickey will be appointed to the Goldshore Board of Directors upon closing of the Private Placement. Mr. Hickey has been a professional advisor to boards of directors, executive management teams, and private and public capital on a wide range of capital structure solutions including equity, debt, and hybrid financial instruments, as well as merger and acquisition transactions. 

President and CEO Brett Richards stated: "We welcome this partnership with our new strategic shareholders, who are committed to advancing the project through its next stages of development. On behalf of the Goldshore directors, we would like to thank Mike for his tenure on the Board, as his technical and commercial approach has helped guide the Company since inception. We would also like to welcome Kyle to the Goldshore board. Kyle has extensive experience in the commodity and resource capital markets, financing assets through all stages of development from resource definition to construction and project finance, and long-term operating capital structures. This financing and partnership represents a new phase for Goldshore and is key to unlocking long-term value and driving success."

PEA and Resource Update

As a result of the new financial and strategic commitment in Goldshore, the Company is reviewing the current PEA in an effort to rescope and optimize the Moss Gold Project under multiple operational and economic parameters. To that end, the Company has engaged APEX Geoscience to prepare a new resource model and a new MRE. The Company has also engaged the expertise of Kappes Cassiday & Associates, leaders in heap leach engineering and technology, to conduct detailed metallurgical test work to determine the efficacy of heap leaching the lower grade material contained in the Moss Gold deposit. Once the results from these activities are received, the Company will determine its next course of development. 

Vice President, Exploration, Pete Flindell: "We welcome our new strategic partners, as this commitment allows us to recalibrate the scope of the future project we want to take to feasibility study. We have a significant portion of high-grade mineralization in the shear zones (3.35M oz Au or 55% of the current mineral resource) with an average head grade of 1.84 g/t Au. This creates the opportunity for a hybrid process with a small flotation, regrind and carbon in leach plant for the high-grade mineralization, and a large heap leach operation for the low-grade material."

Additional Financing Details

Eventus Capital Corp. has been appointed as a finder in connection with the Private Placement. The Company may pay a finder's fee of 6% in either cash or in Units of the gross proceeds received by the Company from the Private Placement. The securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to a four-month and one day hold period under applicable securities laws in Canada. Closing of the Financing is expected to occur on or about November 14, 2023 and is subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.
