TNR Gold Corp "Aiming to Maximise Shareholder Value"

“We are building The Green Energy Metals Royalty and Gold Company. Our business model provides the unique entry point into the creation of supply chains for critical materials like energy metals which are powering Tesla Energy rEVolution and Gold industry which is providing the ultimate hedge during this part of the economic cycle. Our shareholders are participating in the building of The Green Energy Metals Royalty and Gold Company. In our portfolio, we have a unique combination of assets providing exposure to different parts of mining cycle: starting with the power of blue sky discovery and including partnerships with industry leaders like McEwen Mining, Ganfeng Lithium and Lundin Mining as operators on the projects that will potentially generate royalty cashflows to contribute significant value for our shareholders.”

Kirill Klip, Executive Chairman TNR Gold Corp.

"A lot of our investors have been asking me recently, what is my personal Vision for TNR Gold, what is the future of our Company and what are my personal goals to achieve for TNR Gold.

Our Company has reached major milestones this year after the full repayment of the investment loan and all recent developments in the marketplace.

I would like to share with you my personal Vision for TNR Gold’s future. 

The Company is of the view that the recent market prices of its Shares do not properly reflect the underlying value of the Shares. I personally believe that the current market price is grossly undervaluing the intrinsic value of TNR Gold’s assets.


We demonstrate our commitment to maximising shareholder value and fair valuation of our Company and all assets in the TNR Gold portfolio. TNR Gold has announced and is conducting the share buyback program under approved by TSX Venture NCIB rules. 

Insiders resumed their buying in the market when we were allowed to do so.


After much effort, our Company is in a strong financial position now. The recent corporate and market developments confirm the success of our corporate strategy and provide us with the opportunity to build real shareholder value reflecting the true magnitude of our assets. 

The Company is experiencing a coming-of-age moment and we have generated a lot of interest among industry in our Company and portfolio of TNR Gold’s assets. Our shareholders have been extremely patient with the Company, and they deserve correct, fair, and maximised valuations. 

We are aiming to realise much higher potential valuations of our assets for all our shareholders and stakeholders. Below you can find my personal basic aspirational goals and estimations for the appropriate potential market valuations of TNR Gold’s assets and potential share price representations of such values..."

My Vision for TNR Gold and Strategy: Share Buyback, Potential Valuations, and Shotgun Gold Project Spinout

TNR Gold Adopts Shareholder Rights Plan

"VANCOUVER, British Columbia – July 20, 2023TNR Gold Corp. (TSX-V: TNR) (“TNR”, “TNR Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the board of directors of the Company (the “Board”) has approved the adoption of a shareholder rights plan (the “Rights Plan”) pursuant to a shareholder rights plan agreement entered into with Computershare Trust Company of Canada, as rights agent (the “Rights Agent”) dated July 20, 2023 (the “Effective Date”).

The adoption of the Rights Plan is intended to ensure, to the extent possible, that all shareholders of the Company are treated fairly and equally in connection with any unsolicited take-over bid or other acquisition of control of or a significant interest in the Company and to protect against acquisitions of control of the Company through purchases of common shares of the Company that are exempt from applicable Canadian take-over bid rules, also referred to as “creeping” take-over bids. Furthermore, the Rights Plan will ensure the Board is provided with adequate time to consider and evaluate such a take-over bid or other acquisition and, if appropriate, identify, develop and negotiate any value-enhancing alternatives.

The Rights Plan is substantially similar to shareholder rights plans adopted by other Canadian issuers and the Rights Plan is not being adopted in response to any specific proposal to acquire control of the Company.

In accordance with the terms of the Rights Plan, one right (a “Right”) will be issued and attached to each common share in the capital of the Company (a “Share”) outstanding as of the record time under the Rights Plan. A Right will also be attached to each Share issued after the Effective Date in accordance with the terms of the Rights Plan. The issuance of the Rights will not change the manner in which shareholders trade their Shares and the Rights will automatically attach to the Shares with no further action required by shareholders.

Subject to the terms of the Rights Plan, the Rights issued under the Rights Plan become exercisable only if a person (an “Acquiring Person”), together with certain parties related to such person, acquires or announces its intention to acquire beneficial ownership of 20% or more of the outstanding Shares without complying with the “Permitted Bid” provisions of the Rights Plan. Following a transaction that results in a person becoming an Acquiring Person, the Rights entitle the holders thereof (other than the Acquiring Person and certain related parties) to purchase Shares at a significant discount to the market price at that time. Under the Rights Plan, a “Permitted Bid” is a take-over bid that is made to all holders of Shares (other than the offeror under the take-over bid) and satisfies the following:

  • no Shares will be taken up or paid for under the take-over bid for at least 105 days following the commencement of the take-over bid or such shorter period that a take-over bid must remain open for deposits of securities pursuant to applicable Canadian securities laws;
  • no Shares will be taken up or paid for under the take-over bid unless, at the time of take-up or payment, more than 50% of the outstanding Shares held by shareholders other than the offeror (or any associate or affiliate of the offeror or any other person acting jointly or in concert with the offeror) have been deposited pursuant to the take-over bid and not withdrawn;
  • if, on the date specified for take-up and payment, the minimum tender condition described above is satisfied, the terms of the take-over bid will provide for an additional period of at least ten business days to permit any non-tendering shareholders to tender their Shares; and
  • the offeror agrees under the terms of the take-over bid that Shares may be deposited to and withdrawn from the take-over bid at any time before they are taken up and paid for.

The Rights Plan is subject to the acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange and, although the Rights Plan is effective as of the Effective Date, it is subject to shareholder ratification within six months of its adoption, failing which it will terminate.

The description of the Rights Plan in this press release is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the Rights Plan. A copy of the Rights Plan is available on SEDAR under the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com. A summary of the Rights Plan will also be included in the management information circular of the Company prepared in connection with the next shareholder’s meeting.


TNR Gold Corp. is working to become the green energy metals royalty and gold company.

Our business model provides a unique entry point in the creation of supply chains for critical materials like energy metals that are powering the energy rEVolution, and the gold industry that is providing a hedge for this stage of the economic cycle.

Our portfolio provides a unique combination of assets with exposure to multiple aspects of the mining cycle: the power of blue-sky discovery and important partnerships with industry leaders as operators on the projects that have the potential to generate royalty cashflows that will contribute significant value for our shareholders.

Over the past twenty-seven years, TNR, through its lead generator business model, has been successful in generating high-quality global exploration projects. With the Company’s expertise, resources and industry network, the potential of the Mariana Lithium Project and Los Azules Copper Project in Argentina among many others have been recognized.

TNR holds a 1.5% NSR Royalty on the Mariana Lithium Project in Argentina, of which 0.15% NSR royalty is held on behalf of a shareholder. Ganfeng Lithium’s subsidiary, Litio Minera Argentina (“LMA”), has the right to repurchase 1.0% of the NSR royalty on the Mariana Project, of which 0.9% is the Company’s NSR Royalty interest. The Company would receive CAN$900,000 and its shareholder would receive CAN$100,000 on the repurchase by LMA, resulting in TNR holding a 0.45% NSR royalty and its shareholder holding a 0.05% NSR royalty.

The Mariana Lithium Project is 100% owned by Ganfeng Lithium. The Mariana Lithium Project has been approved by the Argentina provincial government of Salta for an environmental impact report, and the construction of a 20,000 tons-per-annum lithium chloride plant has commenced.

TNR Gold also holds a 0.4% NSR Royalty on the Los Azules Copper Project, of which 0.04% of the 0.4% NSR royalty is held on behalf of a shareholder. The Los Azules Copper Project is being developed by McEwen Mining.

TNR also holds a 7% net profits royalty holding on the Batidero I and II properties of the Josemaria Project that is being developed by Lundin Mining. Lundin Mining is part of the Lundin Group, a portfolio of companies producing a variety of commodities in several countries worldwide.

TNR provides significant exposure to gold through its 90% holding in the Shotgun Gold porphyry project in Alaska. The project is located in Southwestern Alaska near the Donlin Gold project, which is being developed by Barrick Gold and Novagold Resources. The Company’s strategy with the Shotgun Gold Project is to attract a joint venture partnership with a major gold mining company. The Company is actively introducing the project to interested parties.

At its core, TNR provides a wide scope of exposure to gold, copper, silver and lithium through its holdings in Alaska (the Shotgun Gold porphyry project) and royalty holdings in Argentina (the Mariana Lithium project, the Los Azules Copper Project and the Batidero I & II properties of the Josemaria Project), and is committed to the continued generation of in-demand projects, while diversifying its markets and building shareholder value.

On behalf of the Board of Directors,

Kirill Klip
Executive Chairman
