Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – March 18, 2019) – Getchell Gold Corp. (CSE: GTCH) (“Getchell Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce up to a 10-million-unit non-brokered private placement, on a “best efforts” basis (the “Offering“) for gross proceeds of $1,500,000 as well as the Company’s intent to reprice the $0.52 warrants issued in the financing that previously closed on November 2, 2018 (the “Financing”).
The offering consists of up to 10,000,000 units priced at $0.15 per unit (“Unit”). Each Unit will consist of one (1) common share in the Company and one half (1/2) of one share purchase warrant (the “Warrants”). Each full Warrant is exercisable into one (1) common share at $0.25 for two years from the date of closing. The Company may also exercise an over-allotment option of up to 15% of the Units sold under the Offering, (being up to an additional 1,500,000 units for additional proceeds of up to $225,000) to address any oversubscription of the Offering, at any time prior to the closing of the offering (the “Closing Date”). The Units will be subject to a four month and one day hold period, from the Closing Date, in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws. At the Company’s option, the Warrant exercise can be accelerated if the shares of the Company trade above $0.25 for five (5) consecutive days. If the Company elects to accelerate the exercise of Warrants, the warrant holders will have 30 days to exercise their Warrants after an announcement is issued by the Company. The Offering is subject to receipt of all regulatory approvals, including the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange.
The Company anticipates paying a finder’s fee in conjunction with the private placement. The funds received from the financing will be applied to: exploration of the Company’s Hot Springs Peak project, exploration of the Company’s other Nevada projects, property payments and for general working capital. It is anticipated that the Company will close the financing in several tranches.
The Company intends to seek the approval from warrant holders of warrants (the “Warrants”) issued pursuant to the Financing. Under the terms of the Financing, 2,226,989 warrants were issued at $0.52 with an expiry date of November 2, 2020. The Company intends to reprice these Warrants to $0.25. Repricing the warrants requires the approval of all warrant holders. Notice will be mailed to holders of the Warrants, and should warrant holders consent to and agree with these changes, they should sign and return the amendment to the Company by April 30, 2019 in order for the changes to each warrant to be effective. Although authorized and approved by the Board of Directors, none of the proposed changes in the warrants are effective with respect to any warrant until written warrant holder consent and agreement is received by the Company.
Subject to approval of the repricing, the warrant expiry date would be modified by the earlier of:
- If, for any 10 consecutive trading days the closing price of the listed shares exceeds $0.3125 (the amended exercise price of $0.25 multiplied by 125% which is the applicable private placement discount of 25%), the term of the warrants must also be amended to 30 days. The amended term must be announced by press release and the filing of a Form 13 with the CSE. The 30-day period will commence 7 days from the end of the 10-day trading period; or
- December 31, 2019.
