Vancouver, B.C. Spanish Mountain Gold Ltd. (the “Company”) (TSX-V: SPA) is pleased to report the receipt of additional funds to advance its Spanish Mountain Gold Project (the “Project”) in British Columbia, Canada.
The Company has reached a settlement agreement with The Department of Justice representing Canada Revenue Agency in relation to the refundable mining exploration tax credit (METC) attributable to qualified mining exploration expenses incurred for the Project. As a result, the Company expects to receive METC totalling $1.4 million during the fiscal year 2021. A similar settlement was reached in 2016 between the parties resulting in the Company receiving a total of $3.9 million related to several years of tax credits.
In addition, a total of 3,860,000 warrants and 2,150,000 options have been exercised during the current fiscal year bringing proceeds to the Company totalling $1,034,744. Former and current insiders of the Company have elected to exercise and hold an additional 3,682,500 common shares during the year.
The Company expects to use all proceeds to advance the Spanish Mountain gold project.
Larry Yau, CEO, commented: “I am particularly pleased with another success in the METC appeal which represents a source of project funding without stock dilutions, debt or sale of assets. Once again, our hard work and persistence have paid off for our shareholders. We will maintain our practice of allocating maximum resources to advance our Project.”
