(the “Agent”), acting as agent and sole bookrunner, in connection with a reasonable “best efforts” marketed offering of a minimum of 21,212,000 common shares (the “Common Shares”) in the capital of the Company and 21,212,000 warrants (the “Warrants”) and up to 30,303,000 Common Shares and 30,303,000 Warrants (the offer and sale of the Common Shares and Warrants collectively referred to as the “Offering”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.25 per Common Share for a period of 24 months following the Closing Date (as herein defined). The expiry date of the Warrants will accelerate in the event the volume weighted average trading price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange is equal to or exceeds $0.30 per Common Share for a period of 20 consecutive trading days (an “Acceleration Event”). If an Acceleration Event occurs, the Warrants will expire 30 days after notice of such Acceleration Event. The aggregate purchase price for one Common Share and one Warrant shall be $0.165, being $0.15 per Common Share (the “Common Share Offering Price”) and $0.015 per Warrant, to raise aggregate gross proceeds of a minimum of $3.5 million and up to $5.0 million.
The Offering will be conducted pursuant to the terms of an agency agreement to be entered into between the Company and the Agent on or prior to the Closing Date.
In connection with the Offering, the Agent will receive a cash commission equal to 7.0% of the gross proceeds of the Offering on closing of the Offering. In addition to the cash commission, the Agent will receive on closing of the Offering non-transferrable compensation options (the “Compensation Options”) equal in number to 7.0% of the aggregate number of Common Shares sold under the Offering, which will entitle the Agent to purchase Common Shares (the “Compensation Option Shares” and collectively with the Common Shares issued upon exercise of the Warrants, the “Underlying Shares”) at the Common Share Offering Price, which may be exercised at any time and from time to time for a period of two years following the Closing Date.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering for working capital purposes and to fund the advancement and maintenance of the Company’s Minnesota manganese project and Nevada silver projects.
Subject to compliance with applicable regulatory requirements and in accordance with National Instrument 45-106 – Prospectus Exemptions (“NI 45-106”), the Common Shares will be offered pursuant to the listed issuer financing prospectus exemption under Part 5A of NI 45-106 to residents of all Provinces and Territories of Canada (other than Quebec).
