Pursuant to the closing of the Offering, the Company issued 11,379,310 shares of the Company at a price of C$0.29 per share for gross proceeds of C$3,300,000.

The Company’s focus for 2020 continues to be on the successful completion of our three major initiatives. At the project level we are working on our Urbanization Certificate, which is split into two parts; the first is our Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and the second being our re-zoning plan.
As previously press released, we have retained international environmental consultancy ERM, through their local offices in Romania, to conduct the EIA process and public audience as part of our Urbanization certificate for the project. Additionally, we continue to advance the Urbanization certificate for the plan of the project through the completion of the ongoing survey and cadastral registration as we move the current project footprint through the necessary re-zoning plan with the local county level authorities.
During 2019 management spent considerable time and effort to optimize the parameters of the project in preparation for our feasibility study. We conducted numerous trade-off studies focused on optimizing the project without increasing the initial capital required for the project. As such, the feasibility study will now focus on the inclusion of the Rovina open pit sequentially to the Colnic open pit. We now expect to deliver a much larger project than that of the preliminary economic assessment of 2019 with higher gold and copper production through a longer mine life. Our staged approach to exploiting the project with the inclusion of Colnic and Rovina will maximize the economics of the project while still leaving tremendous upside with the Ciresata deposit to be developed at a later stage.
The Company just returned from the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference where we introduced our outstanding project to many new investors. Euro Sun has also been invited to present at the 29th BMO Global Metals and Mining Conference being held in Hollywood, Florida from February 23rd-26th, one of the pre-eminent global mining conferences by invitation only.
We would also announce that Stan Bharti has resigned from the board of directors effective immediately.
