for the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders
SolGold (LSE & TSX: SOLG) will hold its Annual General Meeting at the offices of Corrs Chambers Westgarth, located at Level 42, 111 Eagle Street, Brisbane, Queensland 4000, Australia on 22 December 2022 at 9:00 pm (Brisbane, Australia time), 11:00 am (London time), 6:00 am (Toronto time).
Board of Directors Recommendation
The SolGold Board of Directors UNANIMOUSLY RECOMMENDS that shareholders VOTE FOR all resolutions at the upcoming AGM as put forth in the meeting materials for shareholders.
It is essential for all shareholders to vote at the upcoming AGM. Historically, the voter turnout has been below 75% as a vast majority of the retail shareholders have not historically voted. Given the significant changes being undertaken by SolGold to maximize value for shareholders, the retail vote is very important to ensure retail shareholders are properly represented and respected.
