Vancouver, Canada – Golden Cariboo Resources Ltd. (the “Company”) (CSE-GCC/OTC-GCCFF/WKN-A0RLEP) announces that, further to its news release of January 19, 2024, it will effect the consolidation (the “Consolidation”) of its common shares (the “Shares”) on the basis of one (1) new Share for every three (3) old Shares on or about Wednesday, February 7, 2024, resulting in the Company having approximately 14,511,337 Shares issued and outstanding on a post-Consolidation basis.

Registered shareholders of the Company who hold their Shares in certificate form will receive a letter of transmittal from the Company’s transfer agent, Computershare Investor Services Inc., with instructions for exchanging their pre-Consolidation Shares.  Shareholders who hold their Shares through a broker or other intermediary will not need to complete a letter of transmittal. Shareholders who hold their Shares in DRS format will automatically receive an exchanged DRS advice and will not need to complete a letter of transmittal.

No fractional Shares will be issued as a result of the Consolidation, as any fractional Share will be rounded to the nearest whole number.

The Consolidation is intended to make the Shares more attractive to new and current investors.

 

About Golden Cariboo Resources Ltd.

Golden Cariboo Resources Ltd. is rediscovering the Cariboo Gold Rush by proceeding with high-grade targeted drilling and trenching programs on its Quesnelle Gold Quartz Mine project which is almost fully encircled on 3 of 4 sides by Osisko Development (NSE-ODV/TSXV-ODV). Historically, over 101 placer gold creeks on the 90 km trend from the Cariboo Hudson mine north to the Quesnelle Gold Quartz mine have recorded production in excess of 2.6 million ounces of gold up to 1933 (Hall, 1986) and successful placer mining continues to this day.

Golden Cariboo’s Quesnelle Gold Quartz Mine property is 4 km northeast of, and road accessible from, Hixon in central British Columbia. The Property includes the Quesnelle Quartz gold-silver deposit, which was discovered in 1865 in conjunction with placer mining activities and produced 2,048 tonnes grading 3.14 g/t Au and 4.18 g/t Ag in 1932 and 1939, with an additional 217 tonnes of unknown grade reported in 1878 (BC Minfile, 2021).  Hixon Creek, which dissects the Quesnelle Gold Quartz Mine property, is a placer creek which has seen limited, small-scale placer production since the mid 1860’s. From Ministry of Mines Reports prior to 1945, estimates of up to $2,000,000 worth of placer gold was mined from Hixon Creek.
