Midas Gold Announces Name Change to Perpetua Resources and Approved Nasdaq Listing
16/02/2021 1:15pm

New Name Reinforces Commitment to Idaho

Restoration of Legacy Mining District and Domestic Production of Critical Mineral Antimony

Shares to Begin Trading on Nasdaq on February 18

Management Team Strengthened with Hiring of Jessica Largent and Promotion of Tanya Nelson

BOISE, Idaho, Feb. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ - Perpetua Resources Corp. (formerly Midas Gold Corp.) (TSX: MAX) (OTCQX: MDRPF) ("Perpetua Resources" or the "Company") announced today that it has changed its name to "Perpetua Resources Corp." effective February 15, 2021 and the Company's common shares have been approved for listing on the Nasdaq Stock Market ("Nasdaq").

Perpetua Resources Corp. (formerly Midas Gold Corp.) Logo (CNW Group/Midas Gold Corp.)

The Company's common shares will begin trading on the Nasdaq on February 18, 2021 under the symbol "PPTA" and on the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") under the new name at market open on or around February 18, 2021 under the stock symbol "PPTA". As the Stibnite Gold Project (the "Stibnite Project" or "Project") continues to advance through major milestones, the listing on a U.S. stock exchange is a strategic decision to focus the Company's business in the United States and open additional opportunities for American investment.

"Today's approval to list on the Nasdaq points to our growth and readiness to enter the next chapter of bringing the Stibnite Gold Project vision to life," said Laurel Sayer, President and CEO of Perpetua Resources. "The Nasdaq is a premier electronic exchange. Our listing here will allow us greater access to capital, which will help our team move the Stibnite Gold Project from permitting into production. We look forward to connecting with new investors, while delivering value to our long-term shareholders who have supported our vision for years."

The new name "Perpetua Resources" is inspired by Idaho's motto, Esto Perpetua, translated to mean "let it be perpetual", and a reflection of the Company's commitment to doing its part to protect the State of Idaho's vast resources for generations to come. Midas Gold Idaho, Inc., the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, has also updated its name to "Perpetua Resources Idaho, Inc."

"We have always been more than a gold mining company, but you wouldn't have known it by our name," said Sayer. "The name Perpetua Resources better reflects our plan to restore an abandoned mining site, to responsibly develop the critical resources our country needs for a more secure and sustainable future and to be guided by a commitment to Idaho's resources and people. We are proud to enter our next chapter with a name that helps communicate our values and the sustainable future we are working to create for all of us."

The name change not only follows the Company's recent announcement that it has relocated its corporate headquarters to Boise, Idaho, but the name also better aligns with the company's vision and reflects the natural evolution in this next phase of project development. Recent accomplishments include the completion of a successful comment period for the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the Stibnite Gold Project, release of a positive Feasibility Study, and an agreement finalized with regulators to help address legacy water contamination at the abandoned mining district that will enable the company to begin to restore the site.

The Stibnite Gold Project was designed to apply a modern, responsible mining approach to restore an abandoned mine site and produce both gold and the only mined source of antimony in the United States. Antimony is a federally designated critical mineral for its use in the national energy, defense, aerospace and technology sectors. Recent developments point to antimony playing an important role in renewable energy, including in wind turbines and solar panels, as well as emerging liquid metal batteries needed for large-scale energy storage in the green energy future. The Project is also one of the highest-grade gold deposits in the United States and would provide the resources necessary to fund the much-needed cleanup and restoration of the abandoned Stibnite Mining District. While the name is changing, the people, the project and the commitments made over the last ten years remain the same.

The Company introduced its new name with a video. It can be found here.

The Company has also updated its investor presentation and can be viewed here.

Idaho Team Growing
As Perpetua Resources moves its corporate headquarters to Idaho, it is also growing its team. Jessica Largent has joined the team as Vice President of Investor Relations and Finance. Ms. Largent has held finance leadership roles at Newmont, Turquoise Hill Resources and Rio Tinto and brings more than 15 years of mining industry experience in investor relations, planning, financial reporting and accounting to Perpetua Resources.

"This is a really exciting time for Perpetua Resources as we advance through the final permitting stages following a decade's worth of study work and regulatory review. With a strong team, a critical minerals project and a commitment to mining responsibly, the company has all the right ingredients for long-term value creation," said Largent.

Largent comes to Perpetua Resources after serving as the Vice President of Investor Relations for Newmont, a gold mining company with operations in North America, South America, Australia and Africa. Largent will be responsible for the strategy and leadership of the Company's investor relations and finance efforts, drawing on her extensive relationships and years of finance experience.

The Company has also promoted long-time Idaho employee Tanya Nelson from Human Resources Manager and Corporate Secretary to the Midas Gold Idaho, Inc board to Vice President of Human Resources and Corporate Secretary of Perpetua Resources. Ms. Nelson has worked for the Company since 2012 and throughout that time has taken on more responsibility as the team has grown. Having more than 15 years of experience in accounting and human resources, Ms. Nelson is also an Idaho native and has lived in Valley County, where the Project is located, since 1998.

"I am passionate about working to provide job opportunities for rural Idaho and giving people the chance to come back home and start careers that will allow them to support their families," said Nelson. "The people at Perpetua Resources are the strength of this Company and bring our corporate values to life through their actions. Our team cares about the Project but more importantly they care about Idaho, our neighbors and each other. I look forward to continuing to develop the talent that already exists on our team and recruiting the next generation of our workforce to help us bring our project from permitting to operations."

Midas Gold Completes Positive Feasibility Study for the Stibnite Gold Project, Idaho
22/12/2020 1:00pm

Over US$1 Billion Investment Set to Restore Brownfields Site, Implement State-of-the-Art Modern Mining Methods, Employ Hundreds of People and Recover nearly 120 Million Pounds of Antimony, a Critical Mineral

Expected Annual Average Gold Production of 466 thousand ounces at All-in Sustaining Costs of US$427/oz during the First 4 Years of Operation

At US$1,850/oz gold, Robust Project Economics Yield NPV (5%) of US$1.9 Billion and
Average Annual Free Cash Flow of US$594 million in the First 4 Years of Operation

VANCOUVER, BC, Dec. 22, 2020 /CNW/ - Midas Gold Corp. (TSX: MAX) (OTCQX: MDRPF) ("Midas Gold" or the "Company") announced today the results of an independent Feasibility Study (the "FS" or "Feasibility Study") and technical report (the "Report") completed on its Stibnite Gold Project ("Project") in Idaho. The Project, as envisioned in the FS, would become one of the largest and highest-grade open pit gold mines in the United States and the country's only primary producer of antimony, a critical and strategic mineral(1). The FS builds upon Midas Gold's Plan of Restoration and Operations ("PRO"), identifying a suite of operational improvements and environmental refinements to achieve the Company's key objective for the financially viable restoration and brownfields development of the Stibnite mining district.

"The Feasibility Study represents a major milestone for Midas Gold as we continue to advance the Stibnite Gold Project," said Laurel Sayer, President and CEO of Midas Gold Corp. "The positive results demonstrate that our vision to combine economic development with environmental restoration of a brownfield site is technically, financially and environmentally feasible. Each step of the way, our approach to responsible, restorative, modern mining in Idaho has been reconfirmed. We are now one step closer to seeing the river and water quality improved, 550 direct jobs for Idahoans and production of the critical mineral, antimony."

"The results of the Feasibility Study highlight the attractive economics of the Stibnite Gold Project," said Marcelo Kim, Chairman of Midas Gold Corp. "The Project's exceptional grade and low strip ratio place this project in the lowest quartile of the industry cost curve and coupled with its large mineral reserve and manageable capital expenditure profile, make the Stibnite Gold Project one of the gold industry's most attractive development projects. The Project's economics are resilient at lower metal prices and also exhibit significant leverage to rising prices. Despite the recent strength in its share price, Midas Gold represents one of the most undervalued gold investment opportunities in North America. At current market prices, Midas trades at a fully diluted market capitalization of $551 million, or 29% of the Project's NPV 5% of $1.9 billion at spot gold prices. We remain steadfast in our commitment to continue de-risking and advancing the Stibnite Project for the benefit of all stakeholders."

The Stibnite Gold Project economics, as contemplated in the FS, are summarized in Table 1.

Evening P, was just thinking of you the other day, some coincidence, hope you are well. On gold shares I've done well on the ones I bought off the March low like this one, not so well on the ones I bought later on. Doing better on Bitcoin, gold shares have been a major disappointment overall. How have you been doing? If you prefer to discuss off board send me a pm on here or via email if you like, still on old address, can give you an interesting share tip for next month!

Paulson & Co. Requisitions Special Meeting of Midas Gold Shareholders
20/11/2020 11:00am

Paulson & Co. Inc. ("Paulson"), as manager of funds holding 209.4 million, or 44.1%, of the outstanding common shares of Midas Gold Corp. (TSX: MAX) (“Midas Gold” or the “Company”;) today sent the Company a letter requisitioning a special meeting of shareholders in order to refresh the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”).
Marcelo Kim, Partner at Paulson, said, “If elected, the new Board will have more U.S.-based directors, specifically Idaho-based directors, and greater diversity of thought and experience, better equipping the Board to help the Company achieve its long-term goals. And, in stark contrast to current directors, the new Board expects to hold substantial amounts of stock in the Company, creating economic alignment with Midas Gold’s shareholders.”

Paulson, the single largest shareholder of Midas Gold, has decided to take this matter to its fellow shareholders for the following reasons:

With Midas Gold set to receive its major Federal permit in the next year – now that the public comment period has concluded – Paulson believes it is necessary and appropriate to proactively refresh the Board with members better aligned with the evolution of the Company into a U.S.-based producer of critical minerals.

Reconstituting the Board with more U.S. and Idaho-based directors will demonstrate the Company’s long-term commitment to Idaho, its people and the successful restoration and development of the Stibnite Gold Project.

More U.S.-based representation is necessary to reflect the growing strategic value that the Stibnite Gold Project has to the U.S. Government as the potential first new domestic source of the critical mineral antimony, an essential mineral in national security and energy products, including renewables.

Paulson has reaffirmed its long-term commitment to the Company by recently converting all of its debt into common shares, reducing any potential economic drag as Midas Gold moves forward.

Paulson tried to engage collaboratively with the Board to arrange a respectful transition that acknowledged their many years of service, but its efforts to date were rebuffed.
Accordingly, Paulson is calling for the removal of Keith Allred, Jaimie Donovan, Brad Doores, Jon Goode, and Peter Nixon, to be replaced with five new independent, highly qualified directors.

Further, Paulson intends to expand the Board and to elevate Laurel Sayer, the current and longstanding CEO of Midas Gold Idaho, to the refreshed Board.

Paulson has called for a meeting to be held no later than January 18, 2021.

Proposed Slate of New Directors

Bob Dean, who was raised in Idaho and now resides in Boise, has over two decades of experience in business, investment management, corporate finance, and capital markets, having spent over 20 years at Allen & Company. He is currently the Managing Member of Gemstone Capital and Co-Owner of Ada Sand & Gravel, one of the largest independent producers of construction aggregates in Southwestern Idaho. Mr. Dean is a Board Member of Natural Intelligence Systems, Inc., an Advisory Committee Member at Greybull Stewardship, and serves as a Board Member of several non-profits including Trailhead Boise, MoFi, and Ramapo for Children.
David Deisley, who resides in Salt Lake City, Utah, most recently led the successful permitting effort for the Donlin Gold Project in Alaska for NovaGold Resources and brings extensive recent permitting experience in the U.S. as well as a wealth of experience in corporate affairs, native/tribal stakeholder engagement, legal governance, litigation, and mergers and acquisitions. Prior to his tenure with NovaGold, Mr. Deisley was the Executive Vice President, Corporate Affairs and General Counsel for Goldcorp and previously worked at Barrick Gold.
Jeff Malmen, a native Idahoan who resides in Boise, is currently the Senior Vice President of Public Affairs for IDACORP and Idaho Power, where he has worked since 2007. In his role, he oversees government and regulatory affairs, corporate communications and corporate services, including supply chain, real estate and facilities. Prior to that, Jeff enjoyed a 21-year career in state and federal politics, most recently as Chief of Staff for Idaho Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter and Idaho Governor Phil Batt prior to that. He also served as Administrator of the Division of Financial Management for Idaho Governor Dirk Kempthorne. He is the Vice Chairman of the Idaho Association of Commerce and Industry and Board Member of the Idaho Mining Association.
Chris Robison, who resides in Denver, Colorado and was most recently Chief Operating Officer for Newmont Mining, the world’s largest gold miner, brings extensive expertise in mining, metallurgy, project development, mine safety, stakeholder engagement, environmental issues, corporate social responsibility, supply chain, mergers and acquisitions, capital investments, business improvement and regulatory issues. Prior to his role at Newmont, Mr. Robison had a distinguished career at Rio Tinto Minerals and Kennecott Utah Copper.
Alex Sternhell, based in Chevy Chase, Maryland, is one of the top Washington strategists and lobbyists helping to shape U.S. public policy as Principal of the Sternhell Group. Mr. Sternhell has more than two decades of experience working on Capitol Hill. He served as the Democratic Deputy Staff Director of and Senior Policy Advisor to the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs as well as the Staff Director for the Senate Banking Subcommittee on Securities and Investment. He played a key role in drafting and negotiating nearly every major piece of financial services legislation in recent history, including Sarbanes-Oxley, the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act, and Gramm-Leach Bliley.
Long-Term Commitment to Restoration and U.S. Critical Minerals

Paulson believes it is in Midas Gold’s long-term best interests to become a U.S.-listed, U.S.-domiciled, and U.S.-based company, committed to the restoration and development of the Stibnite Gold Project. The project will re-establish fish passageways, rehabilitate natural vegetation, and improve overall water quality at a brownfields site, and lead to a significant $1 billion investment that will create 1,000 direct and indirect jobs in Idaho. Additionally, once developed, the Stibnite Gold Project is set to become the only source of U.S.-mined antimony, which has been declared a critical mineral by the U.S. Government. By making these changes to the Company’s Board at this time, Midas Gold will be better positioned to deliver on its promises to its stakeholders. Redomiciling from Canada to the U.S. will streamline Midas Gold’s corporate structure by eliminating duplicate overheads, including the Vancouver office, thereby empowering employees in Idaho to continue advancing the Stibnite Gold Project.

Advisors

Paulson has retained Mackenzie Partners, Inc. and Carson Proxy as its strategic shareholder services advisors. Goodmans LLP is acting as legal counsel.

Paulson & Co. Provides Notice of Intention to Exercise Convertible Notes in Midas Gold
August 26, 2020

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – Midas Gold Corp. (MAX:TSX / MDRPF:OTCQX, “Midas Gold” or the “Company”;) today announced that Paulson & Co., Inc., on behalf of the several investment funds and accounts managed by it (“Paulson̶1;), will be exercising the conversion feature on the convertible notes held by Paulson in the aggregate principal amount of C$82,102,500 (the “Notes”) for a total of 199,692,804 common shares of Midas Gold (“Common Shares”), which will result in Paulson holding approximately 44.12% of the Company’s outstanding Common Shares. The Notes were purchased by Paulson in two separate financings completed on March 17, 2016 and March 17, 2020 with conversion prices of $0.3541 and $0.4655, respectively.

As reported on August 14, 2020, the U.S. Forest Service (“USFS”) released the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (“DEIS”) on the Stibnite Gold Project (“Project̶1;) for public comment. Individuals will have 60 days to comment on the proposed redevelopment and restoration of the former Stibnite gold, silver, antimony and tungsten mine, which is located in Valley County, Idaho.

“Given the release of the DEIS and the commencement of the public comment period, we believe that it is an appropriate time for the conversion of the Notes, and Paulson intends to remain a long-term shareholder of the Company,” said Marcelo Kim, Partner of Paulson and the Chairman of the Board of Midas Gold. “We believe this is in the best interests of the Company and its many stakeholders. This action will better position the Company to achieve its long-term objective of developing the Stibnite Gold Project.”

The conversion of the Notes will:

Simplify the Company’s capital structure;
Remove uncertainty related to the potential timing of the conversion of Paulson’s Notes;
Significantly reduce the long-term financial liability associated with the convertible notes; and
Increase the issued capitalization of the Company, providing potential opportunities for inclusion in various equity market indexes.
Midas Gold’s Stibnite Gold Project

Midas Gold designed the Stibnite Gold Project to integrate responsible, modern mining with the restoration of legacy and new disturbances at this brownfields site. As outlined in the Plan of Restoration and Operations filed with regulators (see news release dated September 22, 2016), the Stibnite Gold Project, based on its 2014 Preliminary Feasibility Study (see news release dated December 14, 2014), would:

Entail an approximately US$1 billion investment in Idaho to create an economically feasible, environmentally sound mining operation that provides funding for the reclamation and restoration of numerous legacy impacts from prior operations left by previous owners and operators;
Restore passage for various species of fish, and especially Chinook salmon, to the headwaters of the East Fork of the South Fork of the Salmon River for the first time in 80 years;
Become the only domestic producer of mined antimony, one of 35 minerals deemed critical by the U.S. Government, and essential to the economic and national security of the U.S.;
Become one of the largest, highest grade, lowest cost gold mines in the United States not owned by a major mining company;
Create approximately 500 well paid jobs in rural Idaho and a similar number of indirect jobs in the services, support and supplies sectors of the local economy; and
Provide local communities direct input into the Project through its Community Agreement signed with eight local cities, villages and counties, and provide a share of profits to local communities through the Stibnite Foundation.
Remaining Convertible Notes Outstanding

Following the conversion, there will remain outstanding convertible notes in the aggregate principal amount of C$15,409,901 which are convertible into 43,518,501 Common Shares of the Company.

Paulson Share Ownership and Shares Outstanding

Prior to the conversion, Paulson held 9,664,520 Common Shares, representing 3.52% of the 274,834,608 the Company’s outstanding Common Shares as at the date hereof. Following the conversion, Paulson will beneficially own 209,357,324 Common Shares, representing approximately 44.12% of the Company’s 474,527,412 outstanding Common Shares. Assuming conversion of the all of the other convertible notes, Paulson would beneficially own 40.41% of the Company’s then outstanding Common Shares (518,045,913 Common Shares assuming no other issuances prior to the date of conversion of the remaining Convertible Notes).
