BLACK DRAGON TO START TRADING ON ASX ON WEDNESDAY FOLLOWING OVERSUBSCRIBED A$6 MILLION IPO
VANCOUVER, British Columbia – August 27, 2018 – Black Dragon Gold Corp. (“Black Dragon” or the “Company”) (TSXV: BDG) is pleased to announce that it has raised A$6,000,000 (approximately C$5,760,000) in a successful Initial Public Offering (“Prospectus Offering”) ahead of the commencement of trading on the Australian Securities Exchange (“ASX”).
Trading on the ASX in Black Dragon securities, under the ticker code ASX:BDG, is scheduled to commence at 10am AWST on Wednesday, August 29, 2018.
The successful conclusion to the oversubscribed Prospectus Offering resulted in Black Dragon placing 30 million CHESS Depository Interests (“CDIs”) at an issue price of A$0.20 with a range of institutional, high net worth and retail investors. The Company also issued one (1) option (an “Option”) for every two (2) CDIs issued pursuant to the Prospectus Offering. Each Option allows the holder thereof to acquire one (1) additional Share at a price of A$0.33 (approximately C$0.32) for a period of 12 months from the date of issue.
Black Dragon was particularly pleased with the support from retail investors, who have identified the opportunity to invest in one of the ASX’s most exciting near-term gold development stories.
Black Dragon owns 100% of the Salave Gold Project (“Salave”) in the Asturias province in northern Spain. Salave is a technically robust project and recognised as one of Europe’s largest undeveloped gold resources.
The project is approximately 40km from Orvana Mineral Corporation’s (TSX: ORV) El Valle underground gold mine (in operation), highlighting the Asturias region’s understanding of and support for mining operations.
Net proceeds from the IPO will used by Black Dragon to update Salave’s Mineral Resource – due later this quarter – as well as to finalise a preliminary economic assessment of the development plan and advance project permitting.
Black Dragon Gold’s CEO & Managing Director, Paul Cronin, commented:
“We are delighted with the response from investors and look forward to taking the Black Dragon story onto the ASX.
“ASX investors have a strong and proud history of understanding and appreciating gold development stories and we are committed to delivering on our promise of generating shareholder value from Salave, which is a truly fantastic gold asset.
“Since the re-capitalisation and repayment of the Company’s debts in July 2017, we have made incredible progress in data validation and accumulation and recently completed a 2,300m drilling program. The drilling program was designed to confirm our technical understanding of the Salave deposit as well as test continuity and potential extensions to the known high-grade zones. We look forward to reporting assay results from this recent drilling in the near term.
“The appetite from investors in the Black Dragon story and Salave’s development potential, in particular, has been strong and clearly underscores the re-rating potential of Salave as we achieve key development milestones.”
