Toronto, Ontario – November 13, 2023 – Canadian Gold Corp. (TSXV: CGC) (“Canadian Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has been approved for a $300,000 grant from the Manitoba Mineral Development Fund (“MMDF”) as announced at the CCMEC Mineral Conference held in Winnipeg, Manitoba last week. This grant, when combined with the Company’s treasury and pending final tranche closing of the current financing, will increase Canadian Gold’s total capital to approximately $3.5 million.
Canadian Gold CEO Ed Huebert said, “We wish to thank the MMDF for supporting our exploration program at the Tartan Mine near Flin Flon, Manitoba. This funding will help advance the ongoing (2023/24) 2,500 metre diamond drill program” (Click HERE to see the Company’s news release dated November 8, 2023 for further details).
Canadian Gold Corp. acknowledges the significant impact that the MMDF has on mineral exploration in Manitoba, which augments economic development and regional investment across the province. The MMDF program and the Manitoba Mineral Exploration Tax Credit (“MMETC”) make Manitoba a strong destination for mineral exploration. Manitobans may avail themselves of unique tax incentives when investing in eligible Manitoba mineral exploration projects, such as the Tartan Mine.
The MMETC provides Manitoba residents with some of the most advantageous tax credits in Canada, when compared to other provinces. Being able to access this funding for future exploration programs should allow the Company to lower its cost of capital when raising equity, and to help limit dilution, thereby better preserving each shareholder’s percentage ownership in Canadian Gold. Additional details regarding MMETC tax credits for Manitoba residents can be found on the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (“PDAC”) website by clicking HERE.
