Spokane, WA / ACCESSWIRE / July 23, 2014 / Goldrich Mining Company (OTCQB - GRMC) ("Goldrich" or the "Company") is pleased to report the Company has closed the final tranche of its previously announced private placement financing (the "Offering"), increasing the total gross proceeds raised to $1.54 million.
Net proceeds from the Offering will be utilized to further advance development of the Company's 100%-owned Chandalar district-scale gold project in Alaska as well as for general working capital purposes.
The Company plans to commence a hard-rock exploration program in August that will include airborne radiometric and magnetic surveys as well as geologic mapping and sampling to further refine high-priority targets at Chandalar.
"We are very pleased to have completed this financing and to see officers and directors of the Company participating in it," said Goldrich President and CEO William Schara. "The continued support of new and existing shareholders is also greatly appreciated. The financing will allow the Company to complete significant milestones for advancing exploration of our hard-rock prospects."
In total the Company raised gross proceeds of $1,524,000 through the issuance of 27,726,090 units at a price of $0.055 per unit. Officers and directors of the Company took part in the Offering, purchasing 1,424,454 units under the same terms and conditions as units purchased by other investors in the private placement.
Each unit consists of one full share of the Company's common stock and one-half of a Series N warrant. Each full Series N warrant is exercisable to purchase one additional share of common stock of the Company at $0.11 for a period of five years following date of issuance.
GVC Capital LLC ("GVC") acted as the placement agent for the Offering and was paid a sales commission of 8% of gross proceeds raised from the Offering, placement agent warrants equal to 10% of the total units sold, and expenses equal to 2% of the gross proceeds of the securities sold in the offering. Each placement agent warrant is exercisable to purchase one share of common stock of the Company at $0.055 and shall be exercisable for five years.
The terms of the warrants include a call option for the Company. In the event that the Company's common shares trade at a weighted volume average price equal to or greater than $0.22 for a period of 20 out of 30 consecutive trading days at any time following the issuance of the respective warrants, and the average trading volume of the common stock for 20 out of 30 consecutive trading days was at least 120,000 shares, the Company may, in its sole discretion, accelerate the expiration date of the respective warrants by giving written notice to the holders thereof within 14 business days of the occurrence thereof, and in such case, the warrants will expire on the close of business on the date next preceding the Redemption Date. The Company's right to call the warrants is also dependent on (i) a registration statement under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), registering for sale the Warrant Shares, has been filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission and is in effect on the date of written notice of the redemption (the "Notice Date") and the redemption date contained therein and (ii) there exists on the Notice Date a public trading market for the Company's common stock and such shares are listed for quotation on the NASDAQ Stock Market, the OTC Electronic Bulletin Board, or a national securities exchange. The Company granted piggyback registration rights to such investors.
This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of the securities in the United States or in any other jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. The securities have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and have not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements thereunder.
