TORONTO, Feb. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gran Colombia Gold Corp. (TSX: GCM, OTCQX: TPRFF) announced today that has completed the purchase of an additional 2,500,000 common shares in Sandspring Resources Ltd. (”Sandspring”) (TSX-V: SSP, OTCQX: SSPXF) at a price of CA$0.28 per share in a private transaction (the “Transaction”) for total cash consideration of approximately US$528,000. The additional shares were acquired for investment purposes and Gran Colombia has no present intention to dispose of or acquire further securities of Sandspring, although the Company may in the future acquire or dispose of securities of Sandspring, through the market, privately or otherwise, as circumstances or market conditions warrant.
Through completion of the Transaction, Gran Colombia has increased its holdings in Sandspring to an aggregate of 37,500,000 common shares and 16,000,000 share purchase warrants. Each share purchase warrant entitles the Company to purchase one additional share of Sandspring at CA$0.40 for a period of sixty (60) months. The 37,500,000 common shares represent approximately 17.88% of the outstanding common shares of Sandspring. Assuming that Gran Colombia but no other warrant holder exercises and holds its share purchase warrants, when combined with its existing ownership, Gran Colombia would have control and direction over 53,500,000 common shares representing approximately 23.71% of the then outstanding common shares of Sandspring.
