KELOWNA, BC, May 4 /CNW/ - Diamcor Mining Inc. (TSX-V:DMI) (the "Company"), is pleased to announce that, further to its news release of February 9, 2010, whereby the Company announced the first tranche closing of its non-brokered private placement of units (the "Financing") for gross proceeds totalling $2,152,121.00, the Company has now closed its planned second and final tranche of the Financing for additional gross proceeds totalling $1,651,546.80. As noted in the initial release of February 9, 2010, the closing of a second tranche was aimed at providing the Company with the ability to fully fund all remaining closing costs associated with the previously announced pending acquisition of the Krone-Endora diamond deposit (the "Project") from De Beers Consolidated Mines ("DeBeers"). Proceeds of the final tranche will be used for the completion of the acquisition of the Project from De Beers, funding of the Company's planned initial work programmes for the project, the ongoing planning and preparation of post-closing operational items associated with the Project, the continued advancement of future potential acquisitions, and for general corporate purposes.
Pursuant to the requirements of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") the proceeds from the final tranche of the Financing will be held in escrow by the Company's solicitors until such time as the TSXV provides its final approval for the acquisition of the Project or its written approval for the release of the proceeds.
The final tranche of the Financing consisted of 5,505,155 units being issued at a price of $0.30 per unit for the total final tranche gross proceeds of $1,651,546.50 noted above. Each unit consists of one Company common share (a "Share"), and one-half of one share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one additional Share at an exercise price of $0.50 until May 4, 2012.
The Company will pay aggregate finder's fees of $127,574.98 in cash and issue an aggregate of 369,962 broker warrants exercisable to purchase up to 369,962 Shares of the Company at a price of $0.50 per Share until May 4, 2011.
All private placements are subject to regulatory and/or final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange along with completion of all definitive documentation and filings as required. Securities issued pursuant to the final tranche of the Financing will be subject to a hold period ending on September 4, 2010.
Upon completion of this final tranche, the Company will have 25,618,283 shares issued and outstanding.
