This Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 filed by Golden Star Resources Ltd. (the “Registrant”) relates to the common shares (without par value) of the Registrant under the registration statements listed below (the “Registration Statements”) concerning shares issuable under certain equity plans. The Registrant is filing this Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 to the Registration Statements in order to deregister any securities registered and unissued under the Registration Statements and to terminate the Registration Statements as to such shares. The approximate number of unissued shares is set forth below with respect to each Registration Statement.

(1) Share amounts restated to reflect the 5:1 share consolidation completed on October 30, 2018.
(2) A “0” in this column indicates that all shares originally registered under the registration statement were issued.
(3) Of the 7,000,000 shares (as adjusted for the 5:1 share consolidation) originally registered under the Registrant’s stock option plan, approximately 2,333,075 shares remain unissued and are being deregistered pursuant to this Post-Effective Amendment No. 1. For presentation purposes only, the 2,333,075 shares to be deregistered have been allocated to the two most recent restatements of the Registrant’s stock option plan.

 

The shares are being removed from registration and the Registration Statements are being terminated as to such shares because pursuant to the arrangement agreement dated October 31, 2021, as amended by an amending agreement dated November 24, 2021 (the “Arrangement Agreement”), among the Registrant, Chijin International (Hong Kong) Limited (the “Purchaser”), a majority-controlled subsidiary of Chifeng Jilong Gold Mining Co., Ltd. (“Chifeng”), and Chifeng, the Purchaser and its assignee acquired on January 28, 2022 all of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Registrant for cash consideration of US$3.91 per common share.
