Troilus Announces Strategic Shareholder Transition

April 22, 2024, Montreal, Quebec – Troilus Gold Corp. (TSX: TLG; OTCQX: CHXMF; FRA: CM5R) (“Troilus” or the “Company”), reports that Sayona Mining Ltd. (“Sayona”) has divested its entire equity position in Troilus. Last week, Sayona sold approximately 19.2 million Troilus shares at C$0.63, which was executed through a block trade facilitated by a Tier-1 Canadian brokerage firm. These shares have been acquired by a group of new and existing core institutional shareholders. An additional 1.2 million shares were sold on the open market.     

Sayona, who became a large shareholder in Troilus in late 2022 following the acquisition of some of the Company’s non-core claims, covering 985 square kilometres, sold its position in the Company to strengthen its balance sheet. Troilus retained a 2% net smelter returns royalty (“NSR”) on all mineral products from these properties (refer to the November 16, 2022, press release for details).

Justin Reid, CEO of Troilus, commented, “We thank Sayona for their partnership and support as a significant shareholder since 2022. We respect their decision to optimize their balance sheet, and we are very pleased with the smooth transition of their stake to a consortium of large global institutional investors. This transition not only strengthens our shareholder base, but reaffirms a strong confidence in our strategic direction, the Company’s growth potential, and our ongoing commitment to generating value for all our shareholders.”

About Troilus Gold Corp.

Troilus is a feasibility-stage Canadian mining company focused on the systematic advancement and de-risking of the former gold and copper Troilus Mine towards production. The 435 km² Troilus property is located in the top-rated mining jurisdiction of Quebec, Canada, within the prospective Frôtet-Evans Greenstone Belt. From 1996 to 2010, the Troilus Mine produced +2 million ounces of gold and nearly 70,000 tonnes of copper. Since acquiring the project in 2017, ongoing exploration success has demonstrated the tremendous scale of the gold system on the property, which currently hosts 11.21 Moz AuEq (508.3 Mt with an average grade of 0.69 g/t AuEq) in the Indicated Mineral Resource category and 1.80 Moz AuEq (80.5 Mt with an average grade of 0.69 g/t AuEq) in the Inferred Mineral Resource category, making it the largest undeveloped gold deposit in Canada. Led by an experienced team with a track-record of successful mine development, Troilus is positioned to become a cornerstone project in North America.
