Message: Detour Gold Reminds Shareholders to Vote BLUE as Deadline Nears

 

2018-12-06 08:23:00 AM ET (CNW Group)
   
   
    --  To ensure your vote is counted, shareholders are encouraged to
        vote their BLUE proxy or Voting Instruction Form in favour of
        Detour Gold's recommended Board before the deadline of December
        7, 10:00 a.m. (EST)

Detour Gold Corporation (TSX: DGC) ("Detour Gold" or the "Company") is reminding shareholders that they only have until 10:00 a.m. (Toronto time) on Friday, December 7, 2018 to vote their BLUE proxy at the upcoming Special Meeting of Shareholders (the "Meeting"). Those that haven't voted are encouraged to do so, today, on their BLUE Proxy or Voting Instruction Form in favour of the Company's recommended refreshed board of directors (the "Board").

As the deadline nears, shareholders are urged to consider the following:

    --  We are recommending a refreshed Board that has the right
        experience and expertise. The composition of our Board
        addresses the Company's needs and acknowledges the importance
        of continuity and experience. Replacing the entire Board with a
        new slate of directors, many without public board experience
        and none with an in-depth knowledge of the Detour Lake mining
        operation, is a recipe for disaster.

    --  Leading independent proxy advisors have rejected Paulson's
        reckless demand for wholesale change. Institutional
        Shareholders Services ("ISS") and Glass Lewis and Co. ("Glass
        Lewis") agree with shareholders that Paulson cannot be allowed
        to take control of your Company. Both proxy advisors have also
        acknowledged the need for continuity at the CEO level with
        support for Interim CEO Michael Kenyon. Change above and beyond
        what was recommended would be reckless.

    --  Detour Gold is executing the 2018 Life of Mine Plan, which is
        the best value-maximizing strategy. The execution of the 2018
        LOM Plan is what will achieve a higher share price in the
        medium term. The good news is that with a new leadership team
        at the Detour Lake mine our plan is working.

    --  Michael Kenyon is critical to providing the needed stability to
        management in the short-term. In the event Michael Kenyon is
        voted off the Board, the continued progress on the execution of
        the 2018 LOM Plan will be undermined with a high risk of key
        members of senior management, on whom the Company is depending
        for such progress, exiting.

    --  Paulson does not have a plan. Paulson's lack of a go-forward
        plan was highlighted by both ISS and Glass Lewis; they have not
        presented shareholders with a plan to create value. The only
        changes Paulson suggests are disruptive and jeopardize the
        progress we've made.

    --  Momentum for Detour Gold's recommended refreshed Board is
        growing. Detour Gold continues to receive support from
        shareholders who support the responsible changes the Board has
        made. The Company appreciates feedback from shareholders and
        thanks them for their continued support.
