Sun Valley Announces Massive Shareholder Support for Positive Change at Canagold; Reminds shareholders to vote only for the BLUE proxy

Vancouver, British Columbia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sun Valley Investments (“Valley of the Sun”), a long-term, strategic investor in Canagold Resources Ltd. (TSX: CCM) (“Canagold“or the”Company”), thanks Canagold shareholders for the overwhelming support it has received so far and reminds shareholders to only vote BLUE Proxy FOR Sun Valley nominees by the proxy deadline on Thursday, July 14, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. ET.

Mr. Bradford Cooke and the Board of Directors of Canagold (the “Plank”) tried to convince shareholders to ignore decades of value destruction, inexplicable stock swaps at Canagold and other companies, empty disclosures and blatant disregard for good governance. Enough is enough. We’ve heard from many frustrated shareholders who vote with Sun Valley – join us in voting only the BLUE proxy. By Voting the BLUE Proxy, Canagold Shareholders Can Send a Clear Message to the Board: It’s Time to Put Shareholders’ Interests First.

The real capital that Canagold deserves

Sun Valley is committed to funding Canagold and we have the financial strength to support the company. Despite efforts by Mr. Cooke and the board to mislead shareholders, the fact remains that Sun Valley offered C$7.6 million in equity to the company at a premium to at market prices – a 20% premium to the market price or a 60% premium on a flow-through basis.

As such, we stand ready to provide Canagold with the capital needed to rescue New Polaris from the 28-year hiatus at the hands of Mr. Cooke and finally move it forward. The capital would also prevent Canagold from taking a second royalty which would further destroy shareholder value and sustain Canagold through the 2022 drilling season, preventing Canagold from entering an inevitable hibernation under current management.

The real plan that Canagold deserves

Unlike Canagold’s non-existent plan, Sun Valley’s strategic plan is focused on delivering results on time and on budget. Our goal is to save this year’s drilling season and start drilling again at New Polaris so that a mine can be built.

The three-step plan below outlines our plan for New Polaris:

Step 1

  • Stop all royalty talk, ending the destruction of shareholder value

  • Introduce a credible financing option to fund Canagold’s operations and the project

2nd step

  • Submit a feasibility study with a view to a completion period of 18 months

  • Begin the authorization process in the second quarter of 2023

Step 3

  • Continue drilling in 2022/2023 to expand the Company’s resource base and convert existing inferred mineral resources to indicated mineral resources

Sun Valley has a proven track record of developing assets from exploration to production.

Like all shareholders, Sun Valley believes in the potential of New Polaris, and only by advancing it in a timely manner will it deliver value to all shareholders. We believe that the feasibility study will result in a steady increase in the share price.

The real leadership that Canagold deserves

Canagold said the Company “needs an independent and experienced board” – and we agree. Sun Valley’s highly experienced and qualified director candidates, Dr. Carmen Latvian, Ms. Sofia Bianchi and Mr. Andrew Trow, would bring fresh perspectives, technical experience and, most importantly, much-needed independent governance and oversight. to turn around Canagold.

It’s time to save your investment and press play on a business that’s been on hiatus for 35 years. Once elected, our Independent Directors will put Canagold on the right path. Our director nominees are respected industry leaders with relevant expertise in metals and mining, operations and business improvement, and corporate finance, and are the best candidates to turn around Canagold, deliver results and lead us to the long-awaited New Canagold.
