TMAC intends to seek a final order of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice to approve the Transaction at a hearing expected to be held on June 30, 2020. Subject to obtaining all required approvals and satisfying all required conditions, the Transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2020.

Following closing of the Transaction, the Common Shares will be de-listed from the Toronto Stock Exchange.


Jacques Perron will be leaving the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”), effective today, given his recent appointment as President & Chief Executive Officer of another Canadian gold producer. Calum Semple, TMAC’s Executive Vice President, Operations, is joining the Board effective today to replace Mr. Perron.

Andrew Adams, Chairman of the Board of Directors of TMAC, stated, “On behalf of the employees and the Board of Directors of TMAC, I would like to thank Jacques for his service to the company and its stakeholders, including as inaugural Chair of our Technical Committee and as a member of the Special Committee that was formed with responsibility for the strategic process initiated earlier this year. We wish Jacques great success in his new executive role. We are pleased to welcome Calum to the Board, and we look forward to the engineering and technical expertise that he will bring.”


In accordance with Ontario Instrument 51-504 - Temporary Exemptions from Certain Requirements to File or Send Securityholder Materials of the Ontario Securities Commission, the Company has delayed the public filing of its executive compensation disclosure. If the Company is required to hold an annual general meeting of its shareholders prior to December 31, 2020, its executive compensation disclosure will be included in the management information circular in respect of such meeting.


TMAC operates the Hope Bay property located in Nunavut, Canada. The property and operations are remote but not isolated, serviced by both a port and airstrip. Hope Bay is an 80 km by 20 km Archean greenstone belt that has been explored by BHP, Miramar, Newmont and TMAC over a period spanning more than 30 years. In that time, more than $1.5 billion of expenditures have been spent in exploration and evaluation, surface infrastructure, and mine and process plant development. TMAC began producing gold in early 2017 from Doris, its first mine at Hope Bay, and processed gold at the Doris processing plant which originally had nameplate capacity of 1,000 tpd and expanded to 2,000 tpd midway through 2018. There is potential to grow TMAC’s established deposits considerably at depth, and then grow resources further through the prioritized exploration of the more than 90 other identified regional targets. TMAC is permitted to produce from both Madrid and Boston.
