Annual Meeting of Shareholders
The Plan of Arrangement
On October 28, 2019 Buchans Resources Limited, Canadian Manganese Company Inc. and Minco Exploration Limited (collectively the “Companies”) entered into an agreement (the “Arrangement Agreement”) under which they agreed to adopt and implement a group restructuring under a Court supervised Plan of Arrangement (the “Arrangement”) whereby the shares of two of Buchans’ wholly-owned subsidiaries will be distributed to Buchans Shareholders and both will become stand-alone, public companies.
Under the proposed Plan of Arrangement, if approved, shareholders will retain their existing shares of Buchans and Buchans will distribute to its shareholders, pro rata, (i) all of the shares of Canadian Manganese Company Inc. (“Canadian Manganese”), on the basis of one share of Canadian Manganese for each share of Buchans held; and (ii) non-transferrable, exchangeable warrants entitling shareholders to receive one share of Minco Exploration Limited (“Minco Exploration”) or 0.25 additional shares of Buchans, at their option, for each share of Buchans held. Any exchangeable warrants which remain unexercised on the first anniversary of the date that the Arrangement becomes effective will be automatically exchanged for shares of Minco Exploration.
A full description of the proposed Arrangement is contained in the Circular below.
