Goldrich Mining Completes Senior Secured Note Financing
SPOKANE, WA / ACCESSWIRE / February 13, 2018 / Goldrich Mining Company (OTCQB - GRMC) ("Goldrich" or the "Company") announces a senior secured note financing for net proceeds of $1,705,000. The financing remains open for possible total net proceeds of $2,200,000.
The secured senior notes mature on October 31, 2018, have an interest rate of 15% per annum, calculated on a 360-day year and payable monthly, and were issued net of a 5% original issue discount retained by the lenders. A total of 9,422,367 warrants were issued to the lenders. The warrants have an exercise price of $0.03 and expire on November 30, 2022.
Of the net proceeds raised to date, a total of $1,000,000 was received from a director of the Company who had made short-term loans totaling $900,000. The proceeds of the $1,000,000 loan were used in part to pay off these short-term loans along with accrued interest on the previously advanced funds. The Company also issued 442,105 warrants and paid finders fees of $30,000 to a related-party company owned by this director of the Company, representing an amount equivalent to a finder's fee that would have been paid to an independent third party. The Company also agreed to reimburse up to $35,000 of legal fees incurred by the director in connection with this agreement. The balance of $705,000 of the net proceeds was primarily from other related-party shareholders with beneficial ownership interest.
The Notes are secured by distributions received by Goldrich Placer LLC ("Goldrich Placer") from Goldrich NyacAU Placer, LLC ("GNP"). Goldrich Placer, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, holds a 50% stake in GNP, the joint venture entity operating the Chandalar placer mine located 190 miles north of Fairbanks, Alaska. The Notes rank (i) junior to the Company's outstanding senior gold notes, (ii) senior to all other outstanding and future indebtedness of the Company and its subsidiaries, and (iii) pari passu to each other Note issued pursuant to the Loan Agreement. Repayment of all amounts owed under this Note is guaranteed by Goldrich Placer.
