Thred (THD) is set to make its foray into the Western Australian gold sector with its acquisition of PVW Resources.
The company has been in limbo since last year, after its shares were suspended by the ASX for a failure to maintain its operational requirements. However, with the proposed acquisition of PVW Resources, Thred hopes to have its shares re-instated.
As consideration for the deal, Thred will issue a total of 151,515,152 shares to the 69 shareholders of PVW, after which it will rename to PVW Resources Limited.
Following the completion of the transaction, two current directors of PVW, George Bauk and Colin McCavana, will join Thred’s board, while Sol Majteles and Joe Graziano, current directors of Thred, will retire. PVW’s exploration manager, Karl Weber, will also be appointed as Thred’s exploration manager.
The acquisition remains subject to a number of conditions, including the completion of due diligence procedures, shareholder approval, and Shred’s completion of a $2.5 million financing.
According to the terms of the capital raising, Thred will issue a number of its common shares at a price of no less than $0.03 per share. This also forms part of the company’s re-listing requirements, and will be used primarily to fund exploration and resource drilling, and for general administrative purposes.
PVW holds three wholly owned gold projects in Western Australia, including the Tanami Project, the Leonora Project and the Kalgoorlie Project.
Once the acquisition is completed, Thred intends to initially target highly prospective regions within the Leonora Project, using existing data from previous drilling and production activities.
Subsequent exploration work at the Tanami and Kalgoorlie projects will focus primarily on following up known gold occurrences, along with the continued advancement of new targets.
