TORONTO, ON – October 24, 2013 – Denison Mines Corp. (“Denison”) announced today that it has decided to extend its takeover bid for all of the outstanding common shares of Rockgate Capital Corp. (“Rockgate”) to 4:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on November 1, 2013. A Notice of Extension will be sent to Rockgate’s shareholders by Denison in due course.
On September 30, 2013, after the commencement of Denison’s takeover bid, Rockgate announced that it had granted options to acquire an additional 11,000,000 common shares of Rockgate. Rockgate also announced that it had entered into new retention agreements and had amended certain existing consulting agreements, to provide new or enhanced change of control protections for certain employees of and consultants to Rockgate. In light of these actions, the conditions to Denison’s takeover bid offer cannot be fulfilled. Denison has determined that it is appropriate to extend the expiry time of its takeover bid to provide an opportunity to remedy these matters.
