TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / September 29, 2021 / Murchison Minerals Ltd. ("Murchison" or the "Company") (TSXV:MUR) today announced that, subject to all regulatory approvals, it intends to raise $4,000,000 in a non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement"), with the net proceeds directed towards drilling at the HPM nickel/copper/cobalt property in Eastern Quebec, working capital and administrative expenses.
Jean-Charles Potvin, President and CEO: "With the excellent exploration results received from the HPM reconnaissance program this summer, we believe that the 1,700 m long PYC nickel/copper/cobalt-bearing mineralized zone needs to be drill tested immediately. The Private Placement will enable the Company to complete approximately 18 holes totalling 3,550 metres.
The Company intends to issue units ("Units") at a price of $0.08 per Unit and flow-through units ("FT Units") at a price of $0.095 per FT Unit, in any combination to raise aggregate gross proceeds of $4,000,000.
Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of the Company (a "Common Share") and one-half of a common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant") and each FT Unit will be comprised of one flow-through common share of the Company (a "FT Common Share") and one-half of a Warrant. Each whole Warrant shall be exercisable to acquire one additional Common Share at a price of $0.12 for a period of 12 months from the date of issuance thereof.
A finder's fee may apply to a portion of the proceeds raised under the Private Placement in the amount of 6% cash and 6% finders' warrants. All securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to a four month hold period from the date of issue.
It is anticipated that Donald K. Johnson, a director and control person of the Company will acquire a certain number of Units under the Private Placement to maintain his current ownership at around 30%. Any such participation is considered to be a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"). The transaction will be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 based on a determination that the securities of the Company are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") and that the fair market value of the Private Placement, insofar as it involves interested parties, does not exceed $2,500,000 or 25% of the market capitalization of the Company. The Private Placement was approved by all independent directors of the Company.
