TORONTO, Dec. 21, 2017 /CNW/ - Treasury Metals Inc. (TSX: TML “Treasury Metals” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has closed the private placement financing previously announced on December 5, 2017 and upsized on December 6, 2017 (the “Offering”). The Company issued 6.35 million flow-through common shares (“Flow-Through Shares”) at an issue price of $0.67 per Flow-Through Share (the “Issue Price”) for total gross proceeds of $4,254,500.
With completion of the Offering, Treasury Metals has initiated plans to commence its 2018 exploration drill program on its 100% owned Goliath Gold Project in early January. The H1-2018 program will consist of (i) 12,000 meters of infill drilling to complete the Company’s inferred resource conversion program for the Company’s feasibility study, primarily in the lower extents of the central and eastern shoots of the Main and C Zones, and (ii) 15,000 meters of grass-roots/resource expansion exploration drilling focused on Treasury Metals’ high-priority East Resource Target area as follow-up to the near surface drilling program that was completed this past summer. Gold mineralization was intersected in several drill holes approximately 80 to 350 meters from the proposed open pit (see press release dated October 2, 2017). Due to its location, the East Resource Target area has the potential to add near-surface mineral resources proximal to the current proposed open pit.
The Offering was completed through a syndicate of agents led by Haywood Securities Inc., and included PI Financial Corp. The Flow-Through Shares are subject to a four-month hold period, which will expire on April 22, 2018.
The proceeds from the issuance of Flow-Through Shares will be used to incur Canadian Exploration Expenses (“CEE”), and will qualify as ‘flow-through mining expenditures’ under the Income Tax Act (Canada), which will be renounced to the subscribers with an effective date no later than December 31, 2017 to the purchasers of Flow-Through Shares in an aggregate amount no less than the proceeds raised from the issue of the Flow-Through Shares.
