Vista Gold Corp. Filing of Preliminary Short Form Base Shelf Prospectus and Registration Statementadmin
Vista Gold Corp. announce that it filed a preliminary short form base shelf prospectus with the securities commissions in each province and territory of Canada (other than Quebec) and a corresponding shelf registration statement on Form S-3 with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. The Offering Documents, when brought effective, will allow Vista to make offerings of common shares, debt securities, warrants, subscription receipts or units for initial aggregate proceeds of up to US$200 million during the next 25 months to potential purchasers in each province and territory of Canada (other than Quebec) and the United States. Vista expects that it will need to fund the initial capital requirements for the construction and development of its Paredones Amarillos gold project, once necessary permits and approvals have been received. Although the initial financings under the Offering Documents are expected to be used for the construction and development of our existing properties, the proceeds from financings under the Offering Documents may also be used by Vista to fund development of its other existing or acquired mineral properties, acquisitions, working capital requirements, repayment of outstanding indebtedness from time-to-time or for other general corporate purposes. The Offering Documents provide Vista with a flexible and efficient approach for completing future financings for corporate growth and development.
