- A platform from which to seek out other accretive opportunities to complement our development and production pipeline
Mr. Giulio T., Bonifacio, President and CEO of Sabre Gold stated: “We are very pleased to have closed this transaction and look forward to advancing the Copperstone and Brewery Creek Projects. The acquisition of Golden Predator represents an opportunity to bring together advanced-stage former producing gold mines in excellent jurisdictions, and to take advantage of a shared technical team and corporate infrastructure. We believe the combined company will favourably position us to advance the Copperstone Project to production in the very near term and allow us continue to advance the Brewery Creek Project with the assistance of Golden Predator’s technical team.”
Mr. Bonifacio continued, “We would also like to thank our shareholders and Golden Predator’s board, management and shareholders for their dedication and support. In particular, we are pleased to welcome William Sheriff, Stefan Spears and Anthony Lesiak to the board of Sabre Gold. Lastly, we would like to thank our departing board members, Peter Damouni, Ayman Arekat and James McVicar for their support and guidance.”
The Company expects to begin trading on the OTCQB under its new name and ticker symbol by the middle of September 2021, until such time the Company will continue to trade under its current OTCQB symbol, AGAUF.
