Mr. Paul Ireland of Arizona Mining reports
ARIZONA MINING RAISES $15.6 MILLION FROM OSISKO FOR DRILLING ON TAYLOR DEPOSIT
Arizona Mining Inc. has entered into a term sheet with Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd. for a 1-per-cent net smelter royalty on any lead/zinc/silver sulphide ores mined from its Hermosa project for proceeds of $10-million. In addition, Osisko and certain of its insiders will subscribe for a total of 9.99 million units at a price of 56 cents per unit, calculated using the five-day volume-weighted average share price, for gross proceeds of $5.59-million. Each unit consists of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole common share purchase warrant is convertible into one common share of the company at a price of 75 cents for a period of 18 months from closing.
Proceeds from the financings when combined with the company's recent private placement for $2.8-million will be primarily used for an aggressive drill campaign on the Taylor deposit and for general working capital purposes. The royalty is subject to negotiation of a definitive agreement. Closing of the private placement is subject to regulatory approval.
Jim Gowans, Arizona Mining's president and chief executive officer, commented: "The drilling to date that comprises the current resource on the Taylor deposit only tests a small portion of the prospective terrain as defined by geology, geophysics and historic drilling. This drill program will give us a much better idea of the size and grade potential of the deposit. We have two drills currently on site and expect to add an additional three."
We seek Safe Harbor.
