("Gold Mountain" or the "Company") (TSX-V:GMTN) (OTCQB:GMTF) (Frankfurt:5XFA) is pleased to announce the completion of its previously announced bought deal private placement (the "Offering"). The Company issued a total of 4,255,190 units (the "HD Units") at a price of $2.10 per Unit and 1,326,450 flow-through units (the "FT Units") at a price of $2.31 per Unit, for total gross proceeds of approximately $12,000,000 (the "Offering"). This included the full exercise of the Underwriters' option.
Canaccord Genuity Corp. led a syndicate of underwriters which included Eight Capital and Red Cloud Securities Inc. (collectively the "Underwriters") in connection with the completion of the Offering.
The proceeds raised from the sale of FT Units will be used to incur "Canadian exploration expenses" that are "flow-through mining expenditures" (as such terms are defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada)) on the Company's Elk Gold Project in South Central British Columbia, Canada. The proceeds raised from the sale of HD Units will be used to advance the Elk Gold Project, as well as for working capital and general corporate purposes.
"By successfully completing this financing Gold Mountain is in a strong position as we head into the second half of 2021," commented CEO and Director of Gold Mountain, Kevin Smith. "With site development already underway and our Phase 2 drill program hitting full stride, this capital will put us in a position to continue driving the project forward on all fronts."
Each FT Unit consisted of one common share of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a 'Warrant'), each of which will qualify as a 'flow-through share' (within the meaning of subsection 66(15) of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and entitle the holder to a renunciation of qualifying expenditures incurred by the Company in respect of the Elk Gold Project. Each HD Unit shall consist of one common share of the Company and one-half of one Warrant. Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $3.15 for a period of 2 years following the closing date of the Offering. Any common shares of the Company issued upon the exercise of Warrants will be issued on a non flow-through basis.
In connection with the Offering, the Underwriters received an aggregate cash fee equal to 6.0%, other than in connection with certain purchasers on a president's list of Gold Mountain, in which a reduced fee of 3.0% was paid (the "President's List"). In addition, the Company issued to the Underwriters 320,612 non-transferable broker warrants (the "Broker Warrants") representing 6.0% of the aggregate number of FT Units and Units issued pursuant to the Offering (other than in respect of sales of FT Units and Units to purchasers on the President's List, which were subject to a reduced 3.0% commission). Each Broker Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price equal to $2.10 for a period of 2 years following the closing of the Offering.
