Metals Creek Resources Corp. Announces Further Increase In Non-Brokered Private Placement of Flow-Through and Non Flow-Through Units
The Company now intends to issue up to 9,166,667 non flow-through units at a price of $0.06 per unit (the "NFT Units") for aggregate proceeds of up to $550,000, rather than the 7,500,000 NFT Units previously announced. Each NFT Unit will consist of one non flow-through common share and one non flow-through common share purchase warrant (the "Warrants"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional non flow-through common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.12 per common share for a period of 36 months from the date of issue. To date, the Company has issued 6,900,000 NFT Units as part of the Private Placement for aggregate gross proceeds of $414,000.
The Company still intends to issue up to 6,250,000 flow-through units at a price of $0.08 per unit (the "FT Units") for aggregate proceeds of up to $500,000. Each FT Unit will consist of one flow-through common share (the "FT Shares") and one-half of one non flow-through common share purchase warrant (the "Warrants"). Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional non flow-through common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.12 per common share for a period of 36 months from the date of issue. The FT Shares will entitle the holder to receive the tax benefits applicable to flow-through shares, in accordance with provisions of the Income Tax Act (Canada). To date, the Company has issued 2,650,000 FT Units as part of the Private Placement for aggregate gross proceeds of $212,000.
In connection with the private placement, the company may pay finders' fees in cash or securities, or a combination of both, as permitted by the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"). All securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to a four-month hold period. The Private Placement is subject to approval by the Exchange.
The proceeds raised from the FT Units will be used for approximately 4,000 meters of diamond drilling on the Ogden Gold Project in Timmins Ontario and other Canadian Exploration Expenses (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada)), with the Company using its best efforts to ensure that such Canadian Exploration Expenses qualify as a "flow-through mining expenditure" for purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada), related to the exploration of the Company's exploration projects.
