August 10, 2023 – Vancouver, British Columbia – South Atlantic Gold Inc. (TSX-V:SAO) (“South Atlantic” or the “Company”) continues to work to add to the number of creditors of Mina Tucano Ltda., Beadell (Brazil) Pty Ltd. and Beadell (Brazil 2) Pty Ltd. (such three entities and the subsidiaries of Mina Tucano Ltda., collectively, the “Tucano Group”) that support or give priority to South Atlantic’s indicative proposal to acquire entities of the Tucano Group under Judicial Reorganization Proceedings (the “Judicial Process”), pursuant to a plan of reorganization to be approved by creditors and confirmed by the relevant court in a manner favourable to all stakeholders involved.
¹ The Judicial Process is public, details on the creditors listing and further detailed information is available on: https://www.zveiter.com.br/post/mina-tucano-recupera%C3%A7%C3%A3o-judicial
In the event that no restructuring plan is accepted by the creditors (including the plan reflecting South Atlantic’s proposal or the plan from the debtor or any future variations), the complete bankruptcy of Tucano Group is a potential outcome, which, in our view, would not be advantageous for any stakeholder, including the creditors themselves.
South Atlantic has the right to terminate negotiations at any time should negotiations with the creditors of the Tucano Group fail to advance or if the Company is not satisfied, in its sole discretion, with the results of its negotiations or its due diligence review of the Tucano Mine or other assets. There can be no assurance that the creditors of the Tucano Group will favour the plan reflecting South Atlantic proposal.
