VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / December 27, 2019 / TerraX Minerals Inc. (TSXV:TXR)(Frankfurt:TX0)(OTCPINK:TRXXF) ("TerraX" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced bought deal financing (the "Offering") for aggregate gross proceeds of C$5 million.
Pursuant to the Offering, a total of 20 million common shares of TerraX ("Common Shares") were sold at a price of C$0.25 per Common Share for gross proceeds of C$5 million. The Offering was made through BMO Capital Markets (the "Underwriter"). The Underwriter received a cash commission equal to 6% of the gross proceeds of the Offering (other than from the issue and sale of the Common Shares to certain purchasers on a president's list, for which a 2% cash commission was paid).
The Company has granted the Underwriter an option (the "Over-Allotment Option"), exercisable at the offering price for a period of 30 days following the closing of the Offering, to purchase up to an additional 10% of the number of Common Shares sold under the Offering to cover over-allotments, if any. The Common Shares were sold by way of a short form prospectus in each of the provinces of Canada, excluding Quebec, and were also sold by way of private placement in the United States.
The securities offered have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
Concurrent with the completion of the Offering, the Company issued an aggregate of 320,000 Common Shares at a price of C$0.25 per Common Share for aggregate gross proceeds of C$80,000. These shares were issued on a non-brokered private placement basis and are subject to a statutory hold period in Canada expiring on April 28, 2020. No commission or other fees were paid in connection with the issuance of such shares.
The net proceeds of the Offering and the shares issued on a private placement basis will be used to advance exploration at the Company's wholly-owned Yellowknife City Gold project, for working capital, and for general corporate purposes.
Through a series of acquisitions, TerraX owns a 100% interest in the Yellowknife City Gold ("YCG") Project, encompassing 783 sq km of contiguous land within 12 kilometers of the city of Yellowknife. The YCG Project is located in the prolific Yellowknife greenstone belt, covering 70 kilometers of strike length along the main mineralized break in proximity to the former high-grade Con and Giant gold mines which have produced over 14 million ounces of gold. The YCG Project is close to vital infrastructure, including all-season roads, air transportation, service providers, hydro-electric power and skilled tradespeople.
