(TSX: CCM, OTC-QB: CRCUF, Frankfurt: CANA) (“Canagold” or the “Company”) wishes to announce that at its Special General Meeting (“SGM”) of shareholders held on October 17, 2022, the resolution to create a new control person (20% holder) of the Company (the “Resolution”) was approved by disinterested shareholders.

The results of the SGM votes are as follows:
As a result of the approval of the Resolution, Sun Valley Investments AG (“Sun Valley”), or any of its affiliates, may exercise or convert any convertible securities of the Company or make further acquisitions of securities of the Company, which would cause Sun Valley to beneficially own more than 20% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company.
Disinterested shareholder approval of the Resolution was obtained in accordance with the rules of the Toronto Stock Exchange and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”).
A total of 16,790,371 common shares of the Company held by Sun Valley prior to the SGM and any person acting in concert with Sun Valley were excluded from the calculation of the vote to approve the Resolution.
Charity Flow-Through Financing Closing
The Company also wishes to announce that it has arranged and closed the previously announced $1.5 million charity flow-through private placement (the “Offering”) with Sun Valley. The Company has issued a total of 4,700,000 common shares of the Company (the “FT Shares”) that qualify as charity flow-through shares for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada) at a price of $0.32 per FT Share for total gross proceeds of $1,504,000.

No finder fees were paid in connection with the Offering. The FT Shares were issued on the private placement and are subject to a hold period of four months and one day following the closing date of the Offering, expiring on February 20, 2023.
As Sun Valley is an insider of the Company, the Offering is a “related party transaction” and is subject to the requirements of MI 61-101. The Company relied on an exemption from the valuation requirement under MI 61-101. The minority approval requirement under MI 61-101 was satisfied by the passing of the Resolution.
The issuance of the FT Shares is subject to receiving final approval from TSX.
