2018-03-21 14:45 ET - News Release


Mr. Shaun Maskerine reports


Golden Harp Resources Inc. has entered into a scheme implementation agreement with Beadell Resources Ltd. pursuant to which Golden Harp and Beadell will complete a scheme of arrangement under the Australian Corporations Act whereby Golden Harp will acquire all the outstanding shares of Beadell. Beadell is an Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) listed gold company with a producing mine in northern Brazil.

Pursuant to the scheme, each Beadell shareholder will be entitled to exchange 14.25 fully paid ordinary Beadell shares for one Golden Harp common share (either in the form of CHESS Depositary Interests (CDIs) or, if a shareholder elects, Golden Harp common shares), following the completion by Golden Harp of a consolidation of its common shares on an 11-old-for-one-new basis. The resulting entity will carry on the business of Beadell, as a mining issuer, under a new name, Americano Mining Inc., and will remain listed on the TSX Venture Exchange and will apply to be listed on the ASX. The transaction constitutes a reverse takeover of Golden Harp in accordance with the polices of the TSX-V. The transaction is an arm's-length transaction.

Concurrent financing

In connection with the transaction, Golden Harp will undertake an non-brokered financing to raise aggregate gross proceeds of $4-million. The private placement will be completed by way of an issuance of subscription receipts at a price of 8.5 cents per subscription receipt. Each subscription receipt will be exchangeable into one preconsolidation common share of Golden Harp immediately prior to the closing of the transaction. The gross proceeds of the private placement will be held in escrow pending satisfaction of the conditions for the transaction. Finders' fees may be payable in association with the private placement, which is subject to the approval of the TSX-V. The principal subscribers in the placement are expected to be Sprott Inc. and entities associated with the Lundin family.

Debt settlement

Conditional upon the completion of the transaction, Golden Harp will also undertake a settlement of $477,951.07 in debt owed to directors, officers and creditors of Golden Harp through the issuance of an aggregate of 5,622,954 preconsolidation common shares of Golden Harp at a price of 8.5 cents per share. The debt settlement is subject to the approval of the TSX-V. As the debt settlement involves the settlement of certain debts owed to two directors of Golden Harp, being Shaun Maskerine and Kyle Takeuchi, as well as a control person of Golden Harp, Timothy Young, the debt settlement, as it relates to those parties constitutes a related-party transaction pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 and is subject to the requirements of a formal valuation and majority of the minority shareholder approval unless an exemption is available.

Terms and conditions of the transaction

The transaction is subject to, among other things, receipt of the approvals of the shareholders of each of Beadell and Golden Harp, regulatory approvals (including Australian foreign investment approval and approval of the ASX and the TSX-V), Australian court approval of the scheme, the completion of the private placement, debt settlement and consolidation, and other customary terms and conditions for a transaction of this nature.

The principal terms of the transaction include:

  • Golden Harp will complete the private placement and debt settlement.
  • Golden Harp will seek shareholder approval for the transaction, the debt settlement, the consolidation and the private placement (if required). Golden Harp shareholders holding 41.2 per cent of the common shares of Golden Harp have entered into voting support agreements pursuant to which they have undertaken to vote in favour of these matters.
  • Beadell will seek shareholder approval for the scheme.
  • Pursuant to the scheme, Beadell shareholders will exchange 14.25 fully paid ordinary Beadell shares for one postconsolidation common share of Golden Harp such that at the completion of the transaction, existing Beadell shareholders will hold approximately 94.5 per cent of the issued and outstanding shares of Golden Harp.
  • The consideration will be issued either in the form of CDIs or, if a shareholder elects, Golden Harp common shares.
  • Upon completion of the transaction, Golden Harp will have approximately 92 million common shares issued and outstanding.
  • Golden Harp will be renamed Americano Mining Inc. and will apply for listing on the ASX through the admission to quotation of the CDIs (which will be subject to the ASX listing and admission process).
  • Once the transaction is complete it is anticipated that Americano will trade on both the TSX-V and the ASX.

Golden Harp anticipates holding it a shareholder meeting in relation to the matters above on or around late May or early June, 2018. Beadell intends to implement the transaction in the second quarter of 2018.

Tucano is forecast to produce 145,000 ounces to 155,000 ounces in 2018 and sits in the middle of 2,500 square kilometres of greenstone belt with district-scale exploration potential.

During the year ended Dec, 31, 2017, Beadell reported revenues of $211.1-million (Australian) and overall net loss of $101.2-million (Australian) (audited).

Commenting on the proposed transaction, Mr. Jackson, Beadell managing director and chief executive officer, said: "We are pleased to have reached an agreement with Golden Harp that will benefit both companies' shareholders. It has long been my view that the Tucano mine needs to be listed in Canada along with the vast majority of South American gold developers and producers. We are delighted to have received the support of Sprott and the Lundin family as they become new shareholders of Americano. These new shareholders bring extensive market following and experience to the Tucano story and we look forward to growing Americano into an intermediate gold producer. I am also very pleased that Adam Lundin has agreed to join the board of Americano and we look to leverage his industry and capital markets experience as we focus on delivering on our long-term strategy."

The Golden Harp board unanimously recommends that Golden Harp shareholders vote in favour of the transaction, in the absence of a superior proposal.

If an exemption from the sponsorship requirements is not obtained, a sponsor will be identified at a later date. An agreement to act as sponsor in respect of the transaction should not be construed as any assurance with respect to the merits of the transaction or the likelihood of its completion.
