TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 10/17/13 -- Tembo Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TEM)(FRANKFURT:T23) ("Tembo" or the "Company") is in the process of seeking shareholder consent for its previously announced proposed strategic financing of up to $8.657M. The proposed private placement will result in a change of control of Tembo, and, accordingly, the Company is seeking the written consent of shareholders holding over 50% of its issued and outstanding common shares in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. Please refer to the October 8, 2013 press release for full details.
The Board of Directors of Tembo unanimously recommends that Tembo shareholders consent to the change of control in connection with the financing. Shareholders are strongly urged to download and execute the Shareholder Consent Form, available by following this link (http://www.tembogold.com/docs/Tembo-Shareholder-Consent.pdf) or by visiting the Company's website at www.tembogold.com and return it to the Company by email at email@example.com.
Despite the very challenging current market environment for junior resource companies, we remain focused on advancing the Tembo property and securing the necessary financing to do so. It is our belief that the proposed private placement will provide critical funds required by the Company to advance the project and continue exploration. The Company believes that Tembo shareholders will greatly benefit from the wealth of knowledge and access to capital that the investor group brings with it.
