Caldas Gold Corp. has taken certain actions, as set out herein, in respect of its public disclosure in connection with an Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) review related to the preliminary short form prospectus filed by Caldas Gold on Aug. 18, 2020, in connection with the issuance and sale of special warrants.
Amended news releases
In news releases dated May 13, 2020, May 15, 2020, May 21, 2020, June 16, 2020, June 22, 2020, June 23, 2020, and July 2, 2020, the company stated, "Caldas Gold is a Canadian junior mining company currently advancing a prefeasibility study for a major expansion and modernization of its underground mining operations at its Marmato project in the department of Caldas, Colombia, with mineral resources of two million ounces of gold in the measured and indicated categories and 3.3 million ounces in the inferred category."
The company is subject to National Instrument 43-101 -- Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects. Pursuant to Item 2.2(d) of NI 43-101, an issuer must not disclose any information about a mineral resource or mineral reserve unless the disclosure states the grade or quality and the quantity for each category of the mineral resources and mineral reserves if the quantity of contained metal or mineral is included in the disclosure. Pursuant to Item 3.4(b) of NI 43-101, if an issuer discloses in writing mineral resources or mineral reserves on a property material to the issuer, the issuer must include in the written disclosure the quantity and grade or quality of each category of mineral resources and mineral reserves.
Pursuant to NI 43-101, the company hereby retracts the prior disclosure and restates the technical disclosure, as follows,
"Caldas Gold is a Canadian junior mining company currently advancing a prefeasibility study for a major expansion and modernization of its underground mining operations at its Marmato project in the department of Caldas, Colombia, with mineral resources of two million ounces of gold in the measured and indicated categories based on a total of 17.3 million tonnes with an average grade of 3.7 grams per tonne and 3.3 million ounces in the inferred category based on a total of 44.9 million tonnes at an average grade of 2.3 g/t."
Amended technical report
Caldas Gold has filed an amended preliminary feasibility study technical report on its Marmato project, pursuant to NI 43-101, entitled "Revised NI 43-101 Technical Report Pre-Feasibility Study Marmato Project Colombia."
The amended technical report does not change the mineral resources or mineral reserves outlined in the original report dated Aug. 17, 2020.
The amended technical report reflects the following changes: (i) statements of mineral reserves and mineral resources revised to specify whether such estimates include or exclude the mineral reserve tonnage; and (ii) figure 17-2 (a process flowsheet for the MDZ process plant), which was inadvertently omitted from the original report, now included in the amended technical report.
The amended technical report has been filed to ensure compliance with NI 43-101.
Caldas Gold has filed the management's discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations of Caldas Finance Corp. for the financial year ended Dec. 31, 2019. The RTO (reverse takeover) acquirer annual MD&A was not previously filed by Caldas Gold.
Caldas Gold has also filed: (i) amended unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements of the company (then called Bluenose Gold Corp.) for the three and six months ended Dec. 31, 2019, and Dec. 31, 2018, and the notes thereto; and (ii) the amended MD&A of the company (then called Bluenose Gold) for the three and six months ended Dec. 31, 2019.
The changes reflected in the amended financial statements and the amended MD&A are not considered to be material to the company. The amended financial statements have been revised to: (i) remove the notice of no auditor review, as such interim financial statements have now been auditor reviewed; and (ii) fix the header to the notes to the amended financial statements to indicate that such financial statements are in respect of the three and six months ended Dec. 31, 2019, and Dec. 31, 2018. The amended MD&A has been revised to: (i) fix a numerical typographical error; and (ii) fix the header to the amended MD&A to indicate that such document relates to the three and six months ended Dec. 31, 2019, and Dec. 31, 2018.
