Far Resources Provides Corporate Update
November 30, 2017 – Vancouver, BC: Far Resources Ltd (CSE:FAT) (FSE:F0R) (OTCPK:FRRSF) (www.farresources.com) (“Far Resources” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on several corporate matters currently underway.
The Company acquired the Zoro1 claim covering approximately 52 hectares near Wekusko Lake in western Manitoba under an agreement with Top Notch Marketing Ltd., R. Ross Blusson and Double-U-Em Investments Ltd. (the “Vendors”). The Zoro1 claim is part of the Company’s Zoro Lithium Property. In May, 2017, the Company acquired the Zoro 1 claim by accelerating its original option (see news releases dated April 28, 2016 and May 9, 2017) in exchange for a payment to the Vendors of a total of 6,000,000 common shares of the Company at a deemed price of $0.10 per share (the “Payment Shares”) and a non-interest bearing promissory note for C$100,000 payable in 12 months from the closing of the agreement with the Vendors (the “Promissory Note”). The Promissory Note may be prepaid at any time without penalty.
The Company is pleased to announce that the Vendors have agreed to accept payment of the Promissory Note in Common shares of the Company instead of cash with such payment to be made immediately at a deemed price of $0.89 per share.
The Company is pleased to provide an update on its application for DTC eligibility for its common shares as announced in a news release dated October 11, 2017. Far Resources’ common shares have been made eligible for delivery and depository services of The Depository Trust Company (the "DTC") to facilitate electronic settlement of transfers of its common shares in the United States. In the US markets, the Company’s common shares are quoted under the symbol FRRSF. The CUSIP number is the same for both the US and Canada: 30734R100.
Annual and General Special Meeting
The Company also provides an update on its previously announced annual general and special meeting to be held in connection with, among other things, a proposed plan of arrangement (the “Meeting”).
The Meeting was originally announced for Tuesday, December 5, 2017. The Company will now reschedule the Meeting to allow time to prepare all the shareholder materials required for the plan of arrangement (the “Plan of Arrangement”). This change of meeting date will have no effect on existing shareholders eligibility to participate in the Plan of Arrangement. The record date for shareholders to receive spin out shares from the Plan of Arrangement will be after the Meeting. As long as existing shareholders remain shareholders as of the share distribution record date to be determined for the Plan of Arrangement, they will be eligible to participate in the Plan of Arrangement. Full details of the Plan of Arrangement will be provided in a Management Information Circular (the “Information Circular”) that will be mailed in advance of the Meeting and publicly posted on Sedar (www.sedar.com).
The Company also announces that it has granted 1,750,000 options to acquire common shares in the equity of the Company to certain officers, directors and consultants (the “Options”). Each Option is exercisable into one (1) common share in the equity of the Company at an exercise price of $0.89 per option share, expiring 5 years from date of grant.
