Warrior Gold Announces Closing of First Tranche of Oversubscribed Private Placement and Start of Drilling Program
Warrior Gold Inc. (TSX-V - WAR) (“Warrior Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has received commitments of $795,000 for its previously announced private placement financing of $725,000, increasing the private placement by $70,000. The Company has closed the $725,000 flow-through portion of the private placement pursuant to which it has issued an aggregate of 8,333,333 units, each Unit being priced at $0.087 and comprising one flow- through common share (“FT Common Shares”) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”) of the Company. Each Warrant entitles the holder, on exercise, to purchase one additional common share of the Company (a “Warrant Share”), at a price of CDN $0.10 per Warrant Share until the close of business on the day which is 18 months from the Closing Date, subject to an accelerated expiry date. If at any time following the expiry of the statutory four-month hold period, the closing price of the common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange is greater than $0.20 for 20 or more consecutive trading days, the Company may give notice to the holders of Warrants that the expiry date of the Warrants will be accelerated and the Warrants will expire on the 30th business day following the date of such notice.
The Company expects to close the final tranche of the private placement on or about July 3, 2020 with the issuance of an additional 1,166,666 common share units priced at $0.06 per unit.
“The proceeds from this first tranche of the financing will be used to fund a diamond drilling program of 2,300 m (10 holes) which will commence this week on the Goodfish “A” Zone (8 holes) and “C” Zone (2 holes). The drill program has been designed to test the “A” Zone downdip and strike extension to the east and west, as results from the previous drilling campaigns indicated that the “A” Zone discovery is open in all directions. The drilling planned for the “C” Zone is intended to better determine the orientation of the known mineralization and associated structures,” stated Danièle Spethmann, President and CEO of Warrior Gold who added, “Warrior’s past high-grade drilling results are at less than 200m depth and we look forward to testing for continuity of mineralization at greater depths and along strike.”
The gross proceeds from the sale of FT Common Shares will be used by the Company to incur eligible "Canadian exploration expenses" that will qualify as "flow-through mining expenditures" as such terms are defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the "Qualifying Expenditures") related to the Company's Goodfish-Kirana Property located in Kirkland Lake, Ontario. All Qualifying Expenditures will be renounced in favour of the subscribers of the FT Common Shares effective December 31, 2021.
The securities issued are subject to a four-month hold period from the date of issue in accordance with applicable securities laws, expiring on October 30, 2020. In connection with the closing of the flow-through portion of the private placement, the Company paid finder’s fees of $30,100 cash and issued 501,664 compensation warrants in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.
