Darwin Shareholders

On July 24, 2014, Tinka Resources and Darwin Resources (“Darwin”) completed a plan of arrangement (the “Arrangement”) under which Tinka acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of Darwin. Darwin has become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tinka and Darwin’s shares have been halted from trading on the TSX Venture Exchange and such shares were delisted on Monday, July 28, 2014.

Under the Arrangement, each Darwin shareholder is entitled to receive 0.1818 of one Tinka common share for each share of Darwin held immediately prior to July 24, 2014, subject to adjustments. In order to receive Tinka shares, Darwin registered shareholders must surrender the certificates representing their Darwin shares together with a duly completed and executed Letter of Transmittal to Computershare Investor Services Inc.

The Letter of Transmittal was mailed to Darwin shareholders with Darwin’s management information circular dated June 8, 2014 and is available under Darwin’s profile on SEDAR at http://www.sedar.com and on this website - click here.

The Letter of Transmittal is for use by registered shareholders only and is not to be used by beneficial holders of Darwin shares (“Beneficial Shareholders”). A Beneficial Shareholder does not hold shares in its name but such shares are held by an intermediary such as a brokerage firm, or clearing agency such as CDS. If you are a Beneficial Shareholder, your intermediary will submit the required documentation in order to receive Tinka shares.
