North Peak Resources announces non-brokered private placement to fund exploration at Kenogami Lake Project, in the Kirkland Lake Area
The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Private Placement to fund exploration at the Kenogami Lake Project (see below), as well as for general and administrative expenses.
Mike Sutton, Director of the Company and Senior Geologist explained, "The Kenogami Lake Project, which the Company holds an option to acquire, contains all the same rock types, alteration, and most importantly, the same structures, as those that host the Kirkland Lake deposits 8km to the east."
"This first exploration drilling program on the Kenogami Lake Project will consist of targeted drilling on both the Kirkland Lake Main Break and the Cadillac Larder Lake Deformation Zone," added Brian Hinchcliffe, CEO of the Company. "Heightened regional exploration activity has provided only limited access to drills in the upcoming winter period, but we expect this initial exploration program to be completed in Q1 2021."
This initial exploration program is expected to consist of a minimum of three drill holes totaling approximately 1,200m of diamond drilling. The Company has secured the necessary permits to undertake such drilling. This plan is in line with the recommended work program in the 43-101 Report (defined below) and will contribute towards the obligations that the Company must fulfill in order to exercise its option over the Kenogami Lake Project (see below).
The Private Placement is subject to the approval of the Exchange. The securities issued in connection with the Private Placement will be subject to a four-month hold period, in accordance with applicable securities laws.
The Company may pay a commission or finder's fee to eligible parties in connection with the Private Placement, subject to the approval of the Exchange and compliance with applicable securities laws.
