Norseman Silver Inc.



Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire - January 9, 2024 – Norseman Silver Inc. (TSXV:NOC) (“ Norseman ” or the “ Company ”) is pleased to announce that, further to its press release of December 5, 2023 it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “ Private Placement ”) of 12,615,000 units (each a “ Unit ”) at a price of $0.10 per Unit for aggregate proceeds of $1,261 ,500.  


Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company (each, a “ Share ”) and one half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “ Warrant ”).  Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share in the capital of the Company at an exercise price of $0.15 for a period of two years from the date of issuance.


The process proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for exploration on Norseman’s projects in Argentina and British Columbia, Canada, and for general working capital.


Finder’s fees of $79,600 cash and 796,000 Warrants have been paid in connection with the Private Placement to qualified parties.  The Warrants issued to the finders have an exercise price of $0.15 for a period of two years from the date of issuance.


All securities issued are subject to a statutory four month and one day hold period from the date of issuance pursuant to applicable securities laws of Canada.


Three directors of the Company, John Seaman, J. Campbell Smyth and Sean Hurd, participated in the private placement and acquired and aggregate 815,000 units for $81,500.  The participation of Mr. Seaman, Mr. Smyth and Mr. Hurd in the private placement constitutes a Related Party Transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”).  The board of directors of the Company, with Mr. Seaman, Mr. Smyth and Mr. Hurd abstaining, determined that the transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 for the related party transaction, as neither the fair market value of securities issued to the insiders nor the consideration paid by the insiders exceeded 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.  The Company did not file a material change report in respect of the transaction 21 days in advance of the closing of the private placement because insider participation had not been confirmed.  The shorter period was necessary in order to permit the Company to close the private placement in a timeframe consistent with usual market practices for transactions of this nature.
