GTA Provides Update on Corporate Activities and Work Program
April 19, 2016 (Source) — GTA Resources and Mining Inc. (TSX VENTURE:GTA) provides a corporate update and an outline of the first phase of its 2016 work program.
On April 11, 2016 GTA announced it would implement a flow-through financing based upon Ontario’s recent new prospectus exemptions, making it the first company in Canada to do so. Funding for that prospective financing continues, with GTA using Stockhouse’s Deal Room to access Stockhouse’s precleared list of roughly 16,000 accredited investors. GTA’s disclosure information at the Deal Room can be found at www.stockhouse.com/dealroom#hp010816.
GTA has received national exposure as a result of this innovative financing method, leading to two high-profile invitations.
First, GTA has been invited by the Canadian Saudi Business Council to attend the Saudi Canadian SME Forum in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. This Forum is organized in co-ordination with the Saudi Embassy in Ottawa and the Canadian Embassy in Riyadh. The majority of the cost of attending the Forum is borne by the CSBC.
The CSBC’s purpose is to lead Canadian trade delegations to Saudi Arabia, giving Canadian companies access to government officials and business leaders. The Council will also assist Saudi investors in accessing Canadian investment opportunities. GTA intends to discuss its possible near-term production theories at its Northshore Gold Property, located near Thunder Bay, Ontario. The maiden NI 43-101 Resource Estimate on Northshore was filed on Sedar in July, 2014.
Second, GTA has been invited to attend at the 5th Annual Cleantech & Technology Metals Summit, to be held in May, 2016 in Toronto. (http://www.investorintelsummit.com/). This two day summit is intended to review the global status of technology metals (lithium, graphite, silicon, platinum, cobalt, vanadium, scandium, rare earths, etc.), and the supply and demand issues surrounding them. GTA has been asked to discuss how its innovative finance model works in compliance with Ontario’s recent prospectus exemptions (see MI45-108 – Crowdfunding – http://www.osc.gov.on.ca/en/SecuritiesLaw_45-108.htm) and how that model can be adapted for other resource issuers.
In the field, GTA’s technical team continues to develop the spring and summer exploration programs, intended to advance both the Northshore Property and the Ivanhoe Property in Northern Ontario. At Northshore and following closing on the flowthrough financing referred to above, GTA intends to carry out definition drilling towards the north area of the property from where a producing gold mine operated in the 1930’s. GTA has already identified the “Gino Vein” in that area, which requires further work to better understand its possible near-term production capabilities.
GTA is publicly traded mineral exploration company. It is led by an experienced and successful management team and is focused on exploring for gold and graphite in Canada. GTA is a tightly held company having 33,306,855 shares outstanding of which insiders control approximately 21%. The Company’s shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol “GTA.” The Company currently has three projects located in northern Ontario: the 51% owned Northshore Project, near Schreiber / Hemlo; the 100% owned Auden Project near Hearst; and, the Ivanhoe Project near Folyet, in which it has an option to acquire a 100% interest. GTA also owns the Burnt Pond Project in central Newfoundland, proximal to the former producing Duck Pond Cu-Zn Mine.
