TORONTO, April 29, 2016 /CNW/ - Wallbridge Mining Company Limited (TSX:WM, FWB: WC7) ("Wallbridge") is pleased to announce that it completed a non-brokered private placement of an aggregate of 11,700,000 units in the capital of Wallbridge (the "Units") at $0.05 (Canadian) per Unit raising aggregate proceeds of $585,000 (collectively, the "Offering"). The gross proceeds of the Units sold under the Offering will be used for general working capital purposes and exploration and development.
"This placement was strategic for the growth of our company, in that $500,000 was subscribed for by William Day Construction ("Day") of Sudbury. Day was instrumental in the successful operation of our Broken Hammer open pit in 2014 & 2015, which achieved all of its operating cost targets and was completed with no lost time accidents" , stated Marz Kord, President & CEO of Wallbridge. "We are pleased to have them as a shareholder and have entered into a Cooperation Agreement with Day whereby they will be the preferred surface mining and transportation contractor for our future projects based on commercially available terms. This relationship with Day provides us with access to an excellent operating team and enhances our ability to repeat our Broken Hammer success on future projects."
The Offering received preliminary approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange on April 21, 2016, when the Cooperation Agreement was reached, subject only to filing closing documentation. The Units were sold at $0.05 (Canadian) per Unit with each Unit being comprised of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one additional common share of Wallbridge on or before April 29, 2017 at an exercise price of $0.08 (Canadian) per share.
About Wallbridge Mining
Wallbridge creates value through the acquisition, discovery, development, and production of metals. Wallbridge is working to establish a portfolio of projects that will support sustainable production and revenue as well as organic growth through exploration and scalability.
Wallbridge is currently in discussions regarding several advanced stage projects which could become the Company's next production platforms. These discussions benefit from the operating capabilities Wallbridge demonstrated by safely and efficiently mining the Broken Hammer deposit, which was completed in October 2015.
Wallbridge is continuing active partner-funded exploration on its large portfolio of nickel, copper, and PGM projects in Sudbury, Ontario. Most of this work is funded by joint venture partners and has led to the discovery of numerous mineral occurrences including the Broken Hammer deposit.
Wallbridge has further exposure to active exploration for copper and gold in Jamaica and British Columbia through its 16.8% ownership of Carube Copper Corp. ("Carube Copper") (CUC:TSX-V, formerly Miocene Resources Limited). Carube Copper's activities in Jamaica benefit from the funding by OZ Minerals Limited ("OZ Minerals"), with whom Carube Copper has two joint ventures.
