"As previously discussed when we announced the stock consolidation this equity is needed to enable the company to take advantage of our NS Exploration projects. To ensure existing shareholders have an opportunity to participate in the next round we will be using the Existing Shareholder Exemption as further defined below. This will ensure shareholders of record as of May 17th will be eligible to participate in the round. Management, board and our largest shareholders have committed to investing $500,000 in this new round. We would ask any shareholders who are interested to contact me at the email address on this press release" commented Chilean CEO Terry Lynch
The private placement will be conducted in reliance upon available prospectus exemptions, including the existing shareholder exemption (the "Existing Shareholder Exemption") contained in OSC Rule 45-501, BCI 45-534 and various corresponding blanket orders and rules of participating jurisdictions.
The Company has set May 17, 2018 as the record date for the purpose of determining existing shareholders entitled to purchase Units pursuant to the Existing Shareholder Exemption. Subscribers purchasing Units under the Existing Shareholder Exemption will need to represent in writing that they meet certain requirements of the Existing Shareholder Exemption, including that they were, as of the record date and continue to be as of the date of closing for their subscription, a shareholder of the Company. The aggregate acquisition cost to a subscriber under the Existing Shareholder Exemption cannot exceed $15,000 unless that subscriber has obtained advice obtained from a registered investment dealer regarding the suitability of the investment. The Company will accept qualifying subscriptions of $5,000 or more.
In addition the Company wishes to announce it has reached a deal to pay a supplier for previous drilling work completed in Chile on the Company's behalf. The Company will pay the drilling company CDN$220,000 in cash and issue 750,000 shares to repay a payable of approximately CDN$370,000. The Company will also pay the drilling company's estimated VAT obligation on certain unbilled work and certain related fees, anticipated to be no more than $13,000. This arrangement and the financing discussed above remain subject to TSXV approval.
