reports that it intends to raise up to 2,400,000 Flow-Through common shares at
$0.25 for gross proceeds of up to $600,000, and up to 3,000,000 Non
Flow-Through units at $0.20 for gross proceeds of up to $600,000, for a total
private placement of up to $1,200,000.
Each Non Flow-Through unit will consist of one common share along with a
full common share purchase warrant, each warrant being exercisable at $0.25
expiring 2 years from closing.
Proceeds from the sale of the Flow-Through common shares will be used to
fund exploration work on Blue Note's gold properties located in Northern New
Brunswick. Blue Note has an option to acquire a 100% interest in the Williams
Brook gold property which will be the focus of the planned work. Blue Note
also holds a 100% interest in over 400 square kilometers of mineral claims in
the region surrounding the Williams Brook property that are considered
prospective for new gold discoveries. Proceeds from the sale of the Non
Flow-Through units will be used for working capital purposes.
As previously announced, Blue Note made a gold discovery on its Williams
Brook property in late 2008. Drill hole WB-08-11 returned 2.8 meters assaying
11.2 grams of gold per tonne including a half meter section assaying 24.1
grams of gold per tonne. The gold mineralization was intersected 15 meters
vertical from surface.
Two types of gold mineralization were identified on the property. The
highest gold values, including those found in hole WB-08-11, were found in
quartz veins and heavily quartz-veined rhyolite. In addition, gold
mineralization was found to be associated with disseminated pyrite in broad
alteration zones that grade up to 0.91 grams per tonne over an estimated true
width of 23.3 meters. Please consult Blue Note's press release of December 10,
2008 for more details.
