Cornerstone Capital Resources Inc. (“Cornerstone”) (TSXV:CGP; OTC:CTNXF; FWB:GWN1) is pleased to announce that it has filed and commenced mailing its management information circular (the “Circular”) and related materials in connection with the special meeting (the “Meeting”) of Cornerstone shareholders (the “Shareholders”) to be held in virtual-only format via live webcast at 9:00 a.m. (Eastern Time) on January 9, 2023 to approve the previously-announced plan of arrangement (the “Arrangement”) with SolGold plc (LSE:SOLG; TSX:SOLG) (“SolGold”), all as more particularly described in the Circular.
The Circular provides important information regarding the Arrangement and related matters, including the background to the Arrangement, the reasons for unanimous recommendation of the board of directors of Cornerstone (the “Board of Directors”), voting procedures and how to virtually attend the Meeting. Shareholders are urged to read the Circular and its appendices carefully and in their entirety. The Circular and the related materials in connection with the Meeting are being mailed to Shareholders in compliance with applicable laws and interim order of the Court of King’s Bench of Alberta granted on December 6, 2022 and are available under Cornerstone’s issuer profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
The Board of Directors unanimously recommends that the Shareholders vote FOR the Arrangement.
Since announcement of the Arrangement, SolGold has raised gross proceeds of US$86 million through royalty and equity financings. SolGold is well positioned to advance the ongoing strategic review process while continuing to advance and de-risk the world class Cascabel project.

Greg Chamandy, Chairman of Cornerstone, and Brooke Macdonald, Chief Executive Officer of Cornerstone jointly stated:
“We are highly supportive of SolGold’s new strategic direction led by Scott Caldwell focused on maximizing shareholder value. We remain convinced that combining forces with SolGold will unlock significant value for all shareholders.
