– UK, London – Tethyan Resources PLC (AIM:TETH) announces that Southern Arc Minerals Inc., a TSX-Venture Exchange listed company, has subscribed for 16,500,000 new ordinary shares in the Company at a price of CAD 3.6 cents per share, representing approximately 15.44% of the enlarged issued share capital of the Company. The Southern Arc Subscription will raise CAD $ 594,000 (or approximately £353,570) before expenses, for the Company to, inter alia, further advance the Suva Ruda and Gokcanica projects in the Republic of Serbia. These shares will be subject to a 4 month hold period as per Canadian securities law.

In addition, Southern Arc has agreed to purchase 14,653,967 ordinary shares in the Company from Newmont Ventures Limited as part of becoming a strategic investor in the Company. The Newmont Acquisition taken together with the 16,500,000 new ordinary shares acquired in the Southern Arc Subscription, represents approximately 29.15% of the enlarged issued share capital of the Company.

Southern Arc is acquiring the new ordinary shares in the Company under the Southern Arc Subscription for investment purposes and as a strategic investor. Southern Arc will provide support to the Company in both its exploration and corporate activities, particularly in relation to a potential secondary listing on the TSX Venture Exchange. The Board has agreed to start the process of listing on the TSX Venture Exchange which could potentially provide the Company with access to additional capital to fund its projects.

Southern Arc is a Canadian mineral exploration company (TSX-V:SA), focused on gold and copper-gold exploration. Southern Arc’s management team identifies undervalued or underexplored assets, acquires large prospective land positions, completes initial exploration to verify prospectivity, and then seeks out funding partners. Southern Arc’s strategy is to take major strategic stakes in emerging junior exploration companies with promising early stage exploration projects. Southern Arc is a 43% shareholder in Japan Gold Corp., recently listed company on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSX-V: JG), in addition to its holdings in Osisko Mining Inc. (TSX: OSK).

As part of the Southern Arc Subscription, the Board has passed a resolution to appoint John Proust and Michael Andrews to the Board subject to the approval of the Company’s Nominated Adviser, and a further announcement will be made in due course.

In addition, the Company agreed to:

  • grant Southern Arc a first right of refusal on a sufficient share of any further fundraisings undertaken by the Company for a period of 2 years to enable it to increase its holding to, and maintain its interest at 29.9% of the issued share capital of the Company; and
  • use its commercially reasonable efforts to seek a listing on the TSX Venture Exchange as soon as reasonably practicable following completion of the Southern Arc Subscription.

Southern Arc agrees to vote with the recommendations of the Board on all resolutions to be put to shareholders of the Company at the forthcoming general meeting.
