GOLDSOURCE CLOSES $6.6 MILLION BROKERED PRIVATE PLACEMENT, 80% OF OVER-ALLOTMENT OPTION EXERCISED
Goldsource Mines Inc. has completed its brokered private placement offering announced on March 4, 2020, whereby the company issued a total of 60,026,500 units of the company at a price of 11 cents per unit for gross proceeds of $6,602,915. Each unit consisted of one common share of Goldsource and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share at an exercise price of 16 cents until Sept. 24, 2022. The completed offering includes exercise of the agents' overallotment option for $1,602,909, representing approximately 80 per cent of the overallotment option to purchase additional units at 11 cents per unit.
The offering was led by Eight Capital and included PI Financial Corp. and Raymond James Ltd. as agents. The company paid a cash commission equal to 6 per cent (4 per cent for president's list) of the gross proceeds of the offering and issued 3,571,590 compensation options to the agents. Each compensation option is exercisable to acquire one common share at a price of 11 cents per share until March 24, 2022.
The company intends to use the proceeds from this offering to drill test extensions of the high-grade Salbora and Powis discoveries, complete its initial drill program on the Toucan target at its Eagle Mountain gold project in Guyana (see news release dated Feb. 5, 2020, for further details), prepare an updated resource estimate, continue its prefeasibility work inclusive of the recent discoveries, and for general corporate purposes.
The participation of one insider in the offering constituted a related party transaction within the meaning of TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101. The company has relied on the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 in respect of the related party participation in the offering as neither the fair market value (as determined under MI 61-101) of the subject matter of (nor the fair market value of the consideration for) the transaction, insofar as it involved the interested party, exceeded 25 per cent of the company's market capitalization (as determined under MI 61-101). Further details will be included in the material change report. The material change report will not be filed more than 21 days prior to closing of the insider's subscription due to the timing of the accepted subscription and closing having occurred in less than 21 days.
The common shares and warrants issued under the offering and the common shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants and the compensation options are subject to a hold period that expires on July 25, 2020. The offering is subject to final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
