Pursuant to the Agreement, as consideration for the acquisition of a 100% interest in the Claims (the “ Acquisition ”), CLM paid aggregate consideration of $60,000 in cash and granted to AmmPower a 1% net smelter return royalty affecting the Claims, which CLM has the option to repurchase at any time for $250,000. No finder fees are payable in connection with, and no change of control of CLM will result from, the Acquisition. Completion of the Acquisition remains subject to final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (“ TSXV ”).
Rene Bharti, the chief executive officer and president and a director of CLM, is the president and a minority shareholder of AmmPower, and a director and officer of Subco, and the three companies share office space. Further, Ryan Ptolemy serves as the chief financial officer of both CLM and AmmPower. Notwithstanding the shared directors and officers, the Acquisition does not constitute a Related Party Transaction under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“ MI 61-101 ”) because AmmPower and Subco are not Related Parties of CLM (as such terms are defined in MI 61-101). However, the Acquisition does constitute a Related Party Transaction, and was therefore characterized by the TSXV as a Reviewable Transaction, under TSX Venture Exchange Policies 1.1, 5.3, and 5.9 as a result of the shared officers and directors between AmmPower, Subco, and CLM.
Flow-through Financing Extension and Upsize
The Company also announces today that it has received approval from the TSXV to extend the closing of its previously announced non-brokered private placement financing of common shares of the Company issued on a flow-through basis (each, a “ Flow-Through Share ”) at a price of $0.08 per Flow-Through Share for proceeds of up to $1 million (the “ Offering ”) to August 18, 2023. The Company closed a first and second tranche of the Offering on June 12, 2023 and June 26, 2023, respectively, and anticipates that the third and final tranche closing will occur on or before August 18, 2023. For more information on the Offering and the first and second tranches, please see the Company’s press releases dated May 24, 2023, June 12, 2023, and June 26, 2023, respectively.
In addition, as a result of increased investor demand, the Company is increasing the maximum size of the Offering from $1 million to $2 million. The Company continues to intend to use the proceeds of the upsized Offering to fund exploration expenses on its Baillarge lithium mining property. Completion of the Offering (including the first tranche, second tranche, and any future tranche) is subject to receipt of final approval of the TSXV.
