Thursday, 28 December 2023 07:00 AM

Intrepid Metals Corp.


VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / December 28, 2023 / Intrepid Metals Corp. (TSXV:INTR)(OTCQB:IMTCF) ("Intrepid" or the "Company") announces an update to its $3 million non-brokered private placement (the "Offering") with Leocor Gold Inc. (CSE:LECR) ("Leocor") that was announced on December 19, 2023. In order to facilitate the completion of the Offering without Leocor becoming a "control person" as defined by the TSX Venture Exchange and the requirement to obtain shareholder approval, the Offering is being restructured into two components that will close concurrently:

  1. The issuance of 6,600,000 units (the "Units"), with each Unit consisting of one post-Consolidation common share and one common share purchase warrant (each a "Warrant") at a price of $0.34 (post-Consolidation) per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $2.244 million. Each Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to acquire one additional common share at a price of $0.40 (post-Consolidation) for a period of twenty-four (24) months from the closing date of the Offering.
  2. The issuance of 2,223,529 pre-funded special warrants units at a price of $0.34 (post-Consolidation) per Special Warrant for aggregate gross proceeds of $0.756 million. Each Special Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Unit, for no additional consideration but subject to an exercise limitation such that Leocor may not exercise if it would result in them having beneficial ownership over common shares in excess of 19.9%, for a period of five years from the closing date of the Offering.

The restructured Offering will still provide the full $3 million in gross proceeds on closing of the Offering. Prior to the closing of the Offering, Intrepid shall complete a consolidation of its common shares on the basis of one post-consolidation common share for every two pre-consolidation common shares (the "Consolidation").

Intrepid intends to close the Offering as soon as practicable following TSX Venture Exchange approval. As part of the transaction, Leocor will have the right to nominate two directors to the Board of Directors of the Company. The directors will be nominated concurrent with the closing of the Offering.

Intrepid still intends to concurrently conduct an additional non-brokered private placement (the "Secondary Offering") consisting of up to 5,882,353 units (the "Secondary Units"), with each Second Unit consisting of one post-Consolidation common share and one common share purchase warrant (each a "Secondary Warrant") at a price of $0.34 (post-Consolidation) per Secondary Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $2 million. Each Secondary Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to acquire one additional common share at a price of $0.40 (post-Consolidation) for a period of twenty-four (24) months from the closing date of the Secondary Offering. Intrepid intends to close the Secondary Offering in January 2024 to accommodate for the holiday season.

The net proceeds of the Offering and Secondary Offering will be used for exploration expenditures on the Company's mineral properties, investor relations activities and general working capital.

The closing of the Offering is not conditional on the closing of the Secondary Offering. Closing of the Offering and Secondary Offering is subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The Company also announces that it has entered into an agreement dated December 27, 2023 (the "Agreement") between Planet Ventures Inc. ("Planet Ventures") and Intrepid. The Company has engaged Planet Ventures to develop and manage an investor relations and corporate communications program, as well as to support the Company with strategic capital markets advisory services. Planet Ventures has been retained for a six-month term that ends on June 30, 2024. As consideration for the services, the Company has agreed to pay Planet Ventures a total fee of $230,000 plus applicable taxes payable from cash on hand and proceeds from the Offering. Planet Ventures has ownership of 500,000 shares and 100,000 warrants of the Company and may acquire additional securities in the future.

Planet Ventures' contact person, address, email, and telephone number are as follows: Etienne Moshevich, 303-750 West Pender Street, Vancouver, BC, V6C 2T7, [email protected], 604-681-0084.
