The Offering was completed through a syndicate of underwriters led by Raymond James Ltd. and National Bank Financial Inc. as joint bookrunners of the Offering, including BMO Nesbitt Burns Inc., Cormark Securities Inc., Haywood Securities Inc., and PI Financial Corp. (collectively, the “Underwriters”). Pursuant to the Offering, the company issued a total of 13,269,230 common shares of the Company (the “Common Shares”) at a price of C$0.52 per Common Share (the “Offering Price”), representing total gross proceeds of C$6,899,999.60, which includes full exercise by the Underwriters of their over-allotment option to acquire an additional 1,730,769 Common Shares under the same terms as the Offering.
The net proceeds of the Offering will be used for exploration activities at the Santiago Project, including drilling, as well as for working capital and general corporate purposes.
The Common Shares were offered by way of a prospectus supplement filed in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador on January 13, 2023 (the “Prospectus Supplement”), and elsewhere in reliance upon exemptions from registration or the applicable prospectus requirements under applicable securities laws. The Underwriters received a cash commission equal to 6.0% of the gross proceeds from the sale of the Common Shares pursuant to the Offering, which commission was reduced to 3.0% in respect of certain president’s list purchasers.
The Offering is subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. A copy of the Prospectus Supplement is available under the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.
