Tuesday, 18 June 2024 07:15 PM

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / June 18, 2024 / Trans Canada Gold Corp. (TSXV:TTG)(OTCQB:RCTRF) ("Trans Canada") is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement financing of 6,980,000 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.05 per Unit to raise gross proceeds of $349,000 (the "Offering").

Each Unit consists of one (1) common share and one (1) common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"), each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share in the capital of the Company at an exercise price of $0.15 per share for a period of three (3) years from the date of issuance.

Gross proceeds from the Offering will be used by the Company for new drilling planned to take place during the 2024 summer field season on the Company's second Multilateral Well. This well will target the General Petroleum (GP) sand and is similar to successful wells drilled by the operator in the area. The Company will have the right to earn an 18.75% working interest in the Company's second Multilateral well, drilling the GP zone, and is expected to spud in mid-summer 2024. The Company intends to use the balance of proceeds of the Offering for any new costs associated with drilling, exploration of the Company's oil and gas assets, and legal, accounting costs and general working capital.

No finders' fees were paid in connection with the Offering. All of the securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a four month hold period expiring on October 19, 2024. The Offering remains subject to final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101") the Company advises that the Offering constitutes a "related party transaction" under MI 61-101 due to the participation of certain insiders as subscribers under the Offering. Insiders subscribed for 4,000,000 Units for aggregate proceeds of $200,000 pursuant to the Offering. The Company is relying on the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 pursuant to section 5.5(a) and section 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 based on the fact that neither the fair market value of the Offering nor the fair market value of the consideration paid pursuant to the Offering, insofar as it involves related parties, exceeds 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
