Golden Minerals Announces Intent to Adjourn 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders

GOLDEN, CO—/GLOBE NEWSWIRE/—May 13, 2021– Golden Minerals Company (NYSE American and TSX: AUMN) (“Golden Minerals”, “Golden” or “the Company”) announced today that it intends to call to order and then immediately adjourn its virtual annual meeting of stockholders commencing Thursday May 13, 2021, at 1:00 p.m. Mountain Time. The adjournment of the virtual annual meeting of stockholders will be until 1:00 p.m. (Mountain Time) on June 10, 2021. No changes have been, or are expected to be, made to the record date or the proposals to be brought before the Annual Meeting, which are presented in the previously distributed proxy statement. The Company has decided to adjourn the virtual annual meeting in order to provide additional time to solicit proxies with respect to proposals presented to the stockholders for approval, specifically, the proposal to amend the Company’s certificate of incorporation to increase the Company’s authorized common stock from 200,000,000 to 350,000,000 shares (“Charter Amendment”). Although nearly 90% of the shares represented by proxies received to date have approved the Charter Amendment proposal, the number of votes in favor of the proposal has not yet reached a majority of the Company’s outstanding common stock, which is required for passage. The Company’s board recommends a vote in favor of the Charter Amendment for the reasons described in the proxy statement, including the need to have sufficient authorized common stock in order to permit the future issuance of common stock to support the growth and expansion of the Company’s business, including future acquisition of mining properties or other companies engaged in the mining business.

Further information regarding the matters to be acted upon at the Annual Meeting is set forth in the proxy statement and other proxy materials for the Annual Meeting. The proxy statement and related materials are available at Stockholders of record may submit their votes for matters to be considered at the annual meeting until the polls are formally closed. Stockholders who have already voted in accordance with the instructions contained in the proxy statement and related materials do not need to submit new proxy cards or give new voting instructions unless they wish to change their votes. Stockholders who have not yet voted can still use the proxy cards and voting instruction forms previously provided to them. The Company’s Board of Directors encourages all stockholders to review the proxy statement carefully before voting.
