Silver Dollar considers spinout of Red Lake Gold Projects

Oct 9, 2020

Silver Dollar Resources Inc. says its Board of Directors is evaluating the merits of a transaction to transfer its Canadian exploration projects to a new subsidiary that would be spun out to Silver Dollar shareholders. "We are actively pursuing additional advanced-stage silver projects for acquisition and as the Company matures there may come a time when a spin out of our Red Lake gold projects is an appropriate step to maximize shareholder value," said Mike Romanik, President of Silver Dollar. 

The intent of the transaction would be twofold: (1) position Silver Dollar to focus on the exploration and development of the advanced stage La Joya Silver Project in Durango, Mexico and to pursue similar assets for potential acquisition; and (2) position SpinCo to operate as an independent company that would seek a separate public listing and focus on building a pure-play gold exploration company around its discovery-stage Red Lake projects. 

Since the inception of Silver Dollar in November 2018, the Red Lake Gold Camp has seen a resurgence in activity with major discoveries and new mines coming online. Based on the current market caps of several other junior exploration companies with similar stage Red Lake projects, the Board feels that a spinout of the Red Lake assets would justify a material valuation and be beneficial to Silver Dollar shareholders.

The Company can make no assurance that a spinout will take place as it would be subject to several conditions that include satisfying stock exchange listing requirements, the assessment of legal and tax ramifications, determining final details of the transaction, receipt of all regulatory approvals, any required shareholder approval, the availability of financing for the new subsidiary, and market conditions. The company will provide further details if and when available in accordance with the policies of the Canadian Securities Exchange ("CSE").
