VANCOUVER, Nov. 28, 2012 /CNW/ - Ecuador Gold & Copper Corp. (TSXV: EGX)
is pleased to announce that it has closed its non-brokered private
placement (the "Private Placement") of 11,904,762 units (the "Units") at a price of US$0.21 per Unit for gross proceeds of US$2,500,000, a
portion of which has been closed in escrow, such that the subscriber
holds 9.9% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company. The
remaining portion of the Units will be released on final approval from
the TSX Venture Exchange.
Each Unit is comprised of one common share and one half of one common
share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant
will entitle the holder to acquire one additional common share of the
Company at an exercise price of C$0.35 per common share for a period of
36 months from the date of issuance.
In connection with closing the Private Placement, the Company has agreed
to pay finder's fees of US$125,000 to a finder for his efforts in
sourcing the purchaser for the Private Placement.
The securities issued are subject to a four-month hold period from the
date of issuance.
The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for exploration
and development of the Company's Condor Gold Project and for general
working capital purposes.
Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider
(as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange)
accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
