Sassy Closes $2.27 Million Gander Gold Financing Including Strategic Investment by Eric Sprott
VANCOUVER, May 18, 2021 - Sassy Resources Corp. ("Sassy" or the "Company") (CSE:SASY)(OTCQB:SSYRF)(FSE:4E7) is pleased to announce that it has closed a non-brokered private placement financing in its wholly-owned subsidiary, Gander Gold Corporation ("Gander Gold"), including a strategic investment by Mr. Eric Sprott. The private placement of 45,425,000 special warrants, issued at a price of $0.05 per special warrant, generated gross proceeds of $2,271,250. The special warrants will be converted into common shares of Gander Gold at a date to be determined by the board of directors of Gander Gold, but no later than two weeks after Gander Gold becomes a reporting issuer.
Mr. Mark Scott, Sassy President and CEO, stated: "We are very pleased to complete this financing in Gander Gold and to welcome Mr. Eric Sprott as a significant shareholder in Gander Gold. Through Gander Gold, Sassy has acquired a leading land position in the Central Newfoundland Gold Belt with some 9,032 claims under option. The Company's first year assessment requirements are fully funded and these additional funds will allow us to execute an expanded exploration program across the 2,257 square kilometers of highly prospective ground under Sassy and Gander Gold's control. Our discovery team is going to be aggressive and we intend to add our own share of Sassy excitement to this rapidly emerging area play. An application for the public listing of Gander Gold on a Canadian exchange will be made during the second half of the year."
