Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – June 16, 2022) – XAU Resources Inc. (TSXV: GIG.P) (“XAU” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV“) has conditionally approved its qualifying transaction to acquire the Noseno Property in Guyana (the “Transaction“) previously announced in the Company’s press releases dated October 22, 2021, December 21, 2021, March 7, 2022, March 8, 2022, March 30, 2022 and April 29, 2022. The Transaction remains subject to the final approval of the TSXV and is expected to close on or about June 20, 2022.
Immediately prior to the closing of the Transaction, 4,000,000 subscription receipts (the “Subscription Receipts“), issued at a price of $0.25 per Subscription Receipt for gross proceeds of $1,000,000, will convert into 4,000,000 common shares in the capital of the Company and the proceeds will be released from escrow. The net proceeds of the financing will be used to fund the phase one work program on the Noseno Property and general and administrative operating expenses.
The Noseno Property is located in north-western Guyana in one of Guyana’s prospective greenstone belts, 210 kilometers west-northwest of Georgetown, the capital of Guyana. It is an early stage greenfields project which, despite its geological potential, is largely unexplored. The Noseno Property comprises 37 licenses covering 37,623 acres (15,225.5 ha, or 152.26 km²). The Noseno Property is located in the same greenstone terrane as that which hosts the Aurora Mine (Zijin Mining) 46 kilometres to the southeast and the Toroparu Project (Gold X Corp) 58 kilometres to the south, in similar geological settings, and is considered to hold potential for the presence of similar orogenic-style gold mineralization.

(Ontario), Consulting Geologist and author of “NI-43-101 Technical Report on the NOSENO Property, Guyana”, dated effective 28 February 2021, is a qualified person within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101.
