Copper North Mining Corp. (“Copper North” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE: COL) is pleased to report that the previously announced financing (see June 2, 2016 news release) has been increased to $853,000 (the “Private Placement”).
The Company now plans to issue up to 4.1 million units (the “Units”) at a price of $0.15 per Unit for gross proceeds of $615,000 and up to 1.4 million flow–through shares (the “FT Shares”) at a price of $0.17 per FT Share for gross proceeds of $238,000. Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (a “Share”) and one non–transferable warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional Share at a price of $0.25 for a period of 24 months from closing.
The Company has agreed to pay 7.5% in cash in finders' fees and to issue 10% in warrants (the “Finders' Warrants”) in connection with certain portions of the Private Placement. Each Finders' Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Share at a price of $0.25 for a period of 24 months from closing.
The Company intends to use the proceeds from the sale of FT Shares for exploration at the Thor property and plans to use the proceeds from the sale of Units toward completion of an updated Preliminary Economic Assessment on the Carmacks Project, as well as working capital and general corporate purposes.
All securities issued, including common shares to be issued upon exercise of Warrants or Finders' Warrants, are subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance and a four month hold period.
