VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / July 14, 2020 / Gold Terra Resource Corp. (TSX-V:YGT)(Frankfurt:TX0)(OTC Pink:TRXXF) ("Gold Terra" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced bought deal financing (the "Offering"), including the exercise in full of the underwriters' over-allotment option. Pursuant to the Offering, a total of 12.7 million common shares of Gold Terra (the "Common Shares") were sold at a price of C$0.30 per Common Share and 8 million charity flow-through common shares of Gold Terra (the "Charity Flow-Through Common Shares") were sold at a price of C$0.415 per Charity Flow-Through Common Share, for aggregate gross proceeds of C$7,130,000.
The Offering was made through a syndicate of underwriters led by BMO Capital Markets and including Beacon Securities Limited and Stifel GMP (collectively, the "Underwriters"). The Underwriters 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 and the Charity Flow-Through Common Shares to certain purchasers on a president's list, for which a 2% cash commission was paid).
The Offering was completed by way of a short form prospectus filed in all of the provinces of Canada, except Québec, and the Common Shares were sold elsewhere outside of Canada on a private placement basis.
The net proceeds from the sale of the Common Shares will be used to advance exploration at the Company's wholly-owned Yellowknife City Gold project, for working capital, and for general corporate purposes.
The gross proceeds from the sale of the Charity Flow-Through Common Shares will be used for expenditures which qualify as "Canadian exploration expenses" ("CEE") and "flow-through mining expenditures" both within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada). The Company will renounce such CEE with an effective date of no later than December 31, 2020.
Four directors and officers of Gold Terra have participated in the Offering and were issued an aggregate of 1,080,000 Common Shares. Such participation in the Offering constitutes a "related party transaction" as defined in Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("61-101"). The Offering is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the securities issued to related parties nor the consideration for such securities exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization. The Company did not file a material change report 21 days prior to closing of the Offering as the participation of insiders of the Company in the Offering had not been confirmed at that time.
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.
About Gold Terra's Yellowknife City Gold Project
The YCG project encompasses 790 sq. km of contiguous land immediately north, south and east of the City of Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories. Through a series of acquisitions, Gold Terra controls one of the six major high-grade gold camps in Canada. Being within 10 kilometres of the City of Yellowknife, the YCG is close to vital infrastructure, including all-season roads, air transportation, service providers, hydro-electric power and skilled tradespeople.
The YCG lies on the prolific Yellowknife greenstone belt, covering nearly 70 kilometres of strike length along the main mineralized shear system that host the former-producing high-grade Con and Giant gold mines. The Company's exploration programs have successfully identified significant zones of gold mineralization and multiple targets that remain to be tested which reinforces the Company's objective of re-establishing Yellowknife as one of the premier gold mining districts in Canada.
