MARKHAM, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 25, 2013) - Silvore Fox Minerals Corp.

Golden Share has also received shareholders' approval for the Transaction during their special shareholder meeting held this same day. Having now obtained the required shareholders' approval for the merger the Parties intend to finalize the Transaction pursuant to which Silvore Fox and Golden Share will merge into a new company ("Amalco") on the basis of one share of Amalco for every five shares held of each of Golden Share and Silvore Fox. Amalco will retain the name Golden Share Mining Corporation and will also retain the trading symbol GSH on the Venture Exchange.
Amalco will initially have four members on its Board of Directors. Two members will be appointed by Silvore Fox; Chairperson Ge (Anna) Mao (currently Vice President of Sinotech and General Manager of Beijing Donia) and Wenshan (Wilson) Zhang (currently Chief Geologist of Beijing Donia), along with two members appointed by Golden Share; Philippe Giaro (the current President of Golden Share) and Christian Guilbaud (currently a board member of Golden Share).
Mr. Philippe Giaro will head the new management team as President and Chief Executive Officer, while Hua (Helen) Gao will become the Chief Financial Officer and Laurence Huss will assume the role of Vice-President Exploration.
Dr. Jingbin Wang, Chairman of the Board of both Beijing Donia and its parent company, Sinotech Mineral Exploration Co., Ltd.,("Sinotech") will join Mr. Anthony Frizelle and Dr. K. Sethu Raman on Amalco's Advisory Board.
Silvore Fox would like to thank Mr. Harry Cabrita, Mr. Andrew Smith and Mr. Nianqing Zeng for their support and active contributions to the Corporation over their years of service. The Corporation wishes them continued success in their future endeavors.
In connection with the Transaction, Amalco will pay a finder's fee consisting of $1,696 and 447,293 common shares, to be issued in three separate and equal tranches on the closing date, its six-month anniversary and its one-year anniversary.
Beijing Donia Resources Co. Ltd. ("Donia") holds 35.2%of outstanding SFX shares and will now become Amalco's largest shareholder with approximately 21.9% of its issued and outstanding shares.
