Minaurum Gold Inc. (“Minaurum” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the closing of its previously announced brokered private placement offering (the “Offering”) of units of the Company (the “Units”) at a price of $0.40 per Unit. A syndicate of agents led by Clarus Securities Inc., together with Agentis Capital Markets Canada Ltd. and Eight Capital (collectively, the “Agents”), sold 12,500,000 Units in connection with the Offering for aggregate gross proceeds of $5,000,000.
Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company (each, a “Common Share”) and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant is exercisable to acquire an additional Common Share at an exercise price of $0.60 for a period of 24 months following the closing of the Offering, subject to adjustment in certain circumstances. The Warrants are issued pursuant to a warrant indenture dated May 28, 2020 between the Company and TSX Trust Company, as warrant agent.
As consideration for their services in connection with the Offering, the Agents received a cash commission in the amount of $254,700 and an aggregate of 636,750 broker warrants (the “Broker Warrants”). Each Broker Warrant is exercisable to acquire one Unit at an exercise price of $0.40 for a period of 24 months following the closing of the Offering, subject to adjustment in certain circumstances.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for the further exploration and development of the Alamos Silver Project and for working capital purposes. All securities issued and issuable under the Offering are subject to a four-month hold period from the date of closing of the Offering, in addition to any other restrictions under applicable law.
Darrell Rader, President, CEO and a director of the Company, purchased 25,000 Units under the Offering. Mr. Rader's participation is considered to be a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"). The transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the securities to be distributed in the Offering nor the consideration to be received for those securities, in so far as the Offering involves related parties, exceeds 25 per cent of the Company’s market capitalization. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the Offering as the details of the Offering and the participation therein by related parties of the Company were not settled until shortly prior to closing and the Company wished to close on an expedited basis for sound business reasons.
The Offering remains subject to final approval from the TSX Venture Exchange.
Minaurum Gold Inc. (MGG | TSX Venture Exchange; MMRGF | OTC; 78M Frankfurt) is a Mexico-focused explorer concentrating on the high-grade Alamos Silver Project in southern Sonora. With a property portfolio encompassing multiple additional district-scale projects, Minaurum is managed by one of the strongest technical and finance teams in Mexico.
