VANCOUVER – February 27, 2023, Providence Gold Mines Inc. (“Providence” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has been approached by certain insiders and professional service providers to forgive A/P that is owed to them for accounting, exploration and management services. The Board has unanimously accepted their offer and has retired $277,838 of debt to this group. To be clear, this is not a debt for shares settlement but a complete forgiveness of the debt by these certain Insiders and professionals. The Board would like to thank the group for their significant commitment to the Company, and for their instrumental role in strengthening the Company’s financials as the Company continues in discussions to complete funding for its planned 4,000 meters of HQ core drilling program.
Additionally, the Company announces that, subject to final regulatory approval, it has completed a small private placement of 1,236,860 units at a price of $ 0.07 raising a total proceeds of $86,580. These proceeds will be used for marketing and administrative purposes. Each Unit consists of one common share and one purchase warrant. Each purchase warrant entitles the holder to purchase an additional common share at a price of $0.05 for a period of 24 months from the date of issue.
An Insider participated in the Private Placement, and no finders’ fees were paid in connection with the private placement.
Project Achievements and Plans:
Since optioning the Providence Group of Gold Mines, located nearby, Sonora California in the bountiful Motherlode gold belt, the Company has utilized state of the art exploration technology consisting of underground 3D laser mapping, aerial survey photography, underground channel samples, conventional surface trenching channel and soil sampling. The success exploration resulted in the development of numerous modelled high grade drill targets that lie within or near the past producing group of Providence Gold Mines. In addition, our most recent reported trenching program nearby the historical McCarthy mine discovered a zone with potential for low grade bulk tonnage mineralization.
The planned first phase of 4,000-meter of HQ core drilling is designed to verify the gold targets projected near surface. For more information on the enhanced modeling used to develop the drill program can be found on the Company website at the following link:
• Gold has always been a good hedge against financial uncertainty.
• Multiple significant modeled Gold Targets
• Politically safe, mining friendly community located in the USA.
• Patented past producing private lands.
• Good share structure
Potential > 1 million ounce modelled gold targets
Project Funding Amount: $1.3M USD (~$1.7M CDN)
Project Start Date: ASAP
Project Completion Date: Project drilling completion is estimated to take 4 months from receipt of funds.
Project Location: Mining friendly, Sonora, California, USA
Historically, the property milled a reported 225,000 ounces of high-grade gold and has sat idle for over 100 years since the profitable mining operations were ceased in 1916 due to a legal dispute, followed by major wildfires, and the Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918.
