General Meeting: Change of Arrangements


Cora Gold Limited, the West African focused gold company, announces a change of arrangements in respect of a General Meeting of shareholders of the Company (the 'General Meeting') to be held at 12.00 p.m. on 21 April 2020.


On 18 March 2020 the Company announced that:

●     it has conditionally raised £2.89 million (before expenses) through a subscription of 60,838,603 new ordinary shares of no-par value in the Company ('Ordinary Shares') at a price of 4.75 pence per share (the 'Subscription Shares') (the 'Fundraising'); and

●     the Fundraising is conditional on the passing of the necessary resolutions at a General Meeting and admission of the Subscription Shares to trading on AIM ('Admission').


On 19 March 2020 the Company gave Notice of a General Meeting to be held at 12.00 p.m. on 21 April 2020 at the offices of SP Angel Corporate Finance LLP, Prince Frederick House, 35-39 Maddox Street, London, W1S 2PP, United Kingdom.


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak and current public health advice, the Company's board of directors (the 'Board') has decided the General Meeting will no longer be hosted at the offices of SP Angel Corporate Finance LLP. Instead the General Meeting will take place online at the same time and date. The revised arrangements for the General Meeting are as follows. You can join the General Meeting by way of using the hyperlink below which will join you to Microsoft Teams Meeting. You will need to utilise a computer that is connected to the internet and it will need speakers and a microphone capability, if you wish to be able to speak at the General Meeting.

The Board believes that this change of arrangements is in the best interest of the Company's shareholders.


The Board strongly advises shareholders to submit their votes by proxy prior to the General Meeting. Copies of proxy forms can be downloaded via the Company's website at www.coragold.com/category/company-reports. Shareholders who have submitted a proxy may still attend the General Meeting. However, submitting a proxy means shareholders know that their vote will be counted.


Subject to the passing of resolutions at the General Meeting, the Subscription Shares will be admitted to trading on AIM and it is expected that Admission will become effective and dealing in the Subscription Shares will commence on or around 22 April 2020. The Subscription Shares will rank pari passu with the existing Ordinary Shares.


Following Admission, the share capital of the Company will be comprised of 190,515,170 Ordinary Shares. The above figure of 190,515,170 may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in Cora under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.


The Company always welcomes questions from its shareholders at its general meetings. On this occasion the Board would rather shareholders submit their questions beforehand in order that the Board may ensure questions are answered either at the General Meeting or afterwards. Questions may be submitted by email to [email protected] up until 12.00 p.m. on 17 April 2020.

Cora is a gold company focused on two world class gold regions in Mali and Senegal in West Africa. Historical exploration has resulted in the highly prospective Sanankoro Gold Discovery, in addition to multiple, high potential, drill ready gold targets within its broader portfolio. Cora's primary focus is on further developing Sanankoro in the Yanfolila Gold Belt (Southern Mali), which Cora believes has the potential for a standalone mine development.

Cora's highly experienced management team has a proven track record in making multi-million-ounce gold discoveries, which have been developed into operating mines.
