About Winshear Gold Corp.
Winshear holds 100% ownership in the Gaban Gold, Yang Gold and Ica I.O.C.G. projects in Peru. At Gaban, Winshear has discovered and delineated the Coritiri and Yanamayo gold anomalies covering an area of 2.2 km by 1 km. This target is currently being permitted for drilling.
In 2020, Winshear, formerly Helio Resource Corp., secured up to US$ 3.3M in litigation funding from Delta Capital Management LLC (“Delta”) to pursue arbitration proceedings against the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania (“Tanzania”) before an arbitral tribunal appointed by the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (“ICSID”) for the expropriation of its SMP gold project in Tanzania and other breaches of the Agreement between the Government of Canada and the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania for the Promotion and Reciprocal Protection of Investments.
Winshear’s claim against Tanzania now exceeds CDN $130 million and the hearing in these fully funded arbitration proceedings will take place in Q1 of 2023. Any settlement or judgement paid to Winshear from the Tanzanian government is subject to a formula whereby a portion of any proceeds are paid to Winshear’s funders and legal counsel.
