VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Brixton Metals Corporation (the “Company“) (TSXV: BBB) (OTCQB: BBBXF) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement of units and flow-through common shares of the Company for gross proceeds of C$5,501,682 (the “Private Placement“) with a lead order from Palisades Goldcorp Ltd., a strategic institutional investor.
Each unit (a “Unit”) was issued at a price of C$0.25 and is comprised of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant“). Each flow-through share (a “FT Share”) was issued at a price of C$0.28 and is comprised of one common flow-through share of the Company. Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of C$0.35 for a period of 36 months from the date of closing of the Private Placement.
The Company issued a total of 12,689,000 Units and 8,319,400 FT Shares pursuant to the Private Placement.
The gross proceeds from the issuance of the FT Shares will be used for “Canadian exploration expenses” (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada)) (the “Qualifying Expenditures”), which will be renounced to the subscribers with an effective date no later than December 31, 2020 to the initial purchasers of the Offered Securities in an aggregate amount not less than the gross proceeds raised from the issue of the FT Shares, as applicable, and, if the Qualifying Expenditures are reduced by the Canada Revenue Agency, the Company will indemnify each FT Shares subscriber for any additional taxes payable by such subscriber as a result of the Company’s failure to renounce the Qualifying Expenditures as agreed.
The net proceeds from the issuance of Units and the gross proceeds from the private placement of FT Shares shall be primarily used for exploration activities and for general working capital purposes.
Finders acting in connection with the closing of this Private Placement are Red Cloud Securities Inc., Canaccord Genuity Corp., PI Financial Corp. and Leede Jones Gable Inc. whom received finder’s fees in the aggregate total amount of $204,685.92 and were issued an aggregate of 770,364 finder’s warrants. Each finder’s warrant is exercisable for one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.25 for a period of 24 months from the date of closing of the Private Placement.
One insider of the Company participated in the Private Placement in the amount of 120,000 Units. Participation by insiders constitutes a related party transaction as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (”MI 61-101”). The issuance of Securities to the related party is exempt from the formal valuation requirements of Section 5.4 of MI 61-101 pursuant to Subsection 5.5(b) of MI 61-101 and exempt from the minority shareholder approval requirements of Section 5.6 of MI 61-101 pursuant to Subsection 5.7(b) of MI 61-101.
