Gordon Lam, CEO commented, “Backed by several funds and institutions, the capital will help us ramp up and expand our drilling plans at the potentially large-scale Wall Target and other targets that we believe will add significant mineralized zones to those already existing at our gold-silver rich Black Dog Deposit. With the first ever VTEM© survey covering 137 sq. km on the Rock & Roll and Sugar properties currently being flown, we anticipate locking down our targets and drilling in the next few weeks. The VTEM© data will also assist in verifying other high priority targets recently upgraded at never-drilled, prospective areas.”
The Company paid finder’s fees of $19,163 and 53,861 finder’s warrants to arm’s length parties in connection with the private placement as permitted by securities law. The finders’ warrants are exercisable at $0.45 per share for a three (3) year period.
Proceeds of the non-flow-through financing will be used for exploration and general working capital. The gross proceeds from the flow-through financing will be used to fund Canadian Exploration Expenses (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada)) which shall qualify as “flow-through mining expenditures”, for purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada), related to the Company’s Rock & Roll and Sugar properties in BC.
