TORONTO, March 13 /CNW/ - Eurasia Gold Inc. ("Eurasia" or, the "Company")
(TSX: EGX) is announcing today that its shareholders have approved the
acquisition by the Company of entities which hold or will acquire 100% of the
rights to the Bozymchak Gold-Silver-Copper Project in Kyrgyzstan and to the
Akjilga Silver Project in Tajikistan (the "Acquisition").
The Acquisition is a "related party transaction" within the meaning of
OSC Rule 61-501 ("Rule 61-501") and, as such, required the approval of a
majority of votes cast at the special meeting of Eurasia's shareholders (held
today) present in person or by proxy, excluding votes cast by those Eurasia
shareholders required to be excluded pursuant to the minority approval
provisions of Rule 61-501. No excluded votes were cast at the meeting and as a
result 99.9% of the 40,315,265 votes cast by minority shareholders on the
resolution were cast in favour.
The parties will proceed to complete the Acquisition and have agreed to
amend the time for completion of the Acquisition until March 31, 2007. Given
the postponement of the Company's secondary listing on the Main Market of the
London Stock Exchange and the offering of new shares to institutional
investors, the Company has agreed to a private placement of C$20 million of
new treasury shares to its controlling shareholder in order to meet near-term
funding requirements for the new projects. The shares will be issued at the
market price determined at the close of trading on March 13, 2007. The
Acquisition will close following completion of this private placement. The
Company will continue to evaluate longer term financing alternatives.
The private placement remains subject to all required regulatory
approvals, including those of the Toronto Stock Exchange.
Eurasia shareholders also approved a special resolution authorizing
Eurasia to make a continuation application to the registrar under the Business
Corporations Act (British Columbia) for the continuation of Eurasia as a
company under that Act.
