Getchell Gold Updates on Trading Halt


Burlington, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – January 14, 2019) – Further to its January 6, 2019 press release, Getchell Gold Corp. (CSE: GTCH) (“Getchell Gold” or the “Company”) reconfirms to shareholders that the share consolidation (the “Consolidation“) of Getchell Gold’s issued and outstanding common shares (the “Common Shares“) was announced October 29, 2018. The Consolidation was on the basis of one (1) post-Consolidation Common Share for every six (6) pre-Consolidated Common Shares held by Getchell Gold (formerly Wabi) shareholders. The Consolidation was not processed for the reasons presented in the January 6, 2019 press release.

Prior to the resumption of trading on December 3, 2018, the Company completed a treasury issuance (the “Share Issuance”) to the former Buena Vista Gold Inc. shareholders on a post-Consolidated basis (1:1); pursuant to the acquisition of Buena Vista Gold Inc. as approved at the Annual and Special meeting of Shareholders of the Company held on October 26, 2018. The Share Issuance was completed under Getchell Gold’s pre-consolidation security identifier erroneously and as a result some of these certificates were deposited by dealers to their accounts at the Canadian Depository for Securities (“CDS”) under the pre-consolidated security identifier. A trading halt was issued on December 18, 2018 to protect the integrity of the market.

CDS has advised the Company that during the halt trade period, CDS identified the erroneous deposits made from November 3, 2018 through December 18, 2018 and on January 6, 2019 corrected the erroneous deposits to reflect pre-Consolidation positions under the pre-Consolidation security identifier and immediately thereafter, processed the consolidation.

All buyers of Common Shares during the December 3 through 18, 2018 trading period are encouraged to check their respective brokerage accounts to determine if their purchased Common Shares were consolidated on a 1-for-6 basis after the purchase. The Canadian Depository for Securities (CDS) will provide additional transaction detail to the brokers upon request.

Getchell Gold expects the halt trade on the Common Shares to be lifted on or about Tuesday, January 15, 2019.
