THUNDER BAY, ON, April 7, 2014 /CNW/ - Wolfden Resources Corporation (WLF:TSX-V) ("Wolfden" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed a previously announced non-brokered private placement (the "Offering") of 6,250,000 flow-through units (the "Flow-Through Units") at a price of $0.20 per Flow-Through Unit for gross proceeds of $1,250,000. Each Flow-Through Unit consists of one common share of the Company that is a "flow-through share" within the meaning in the Income Tax Act (Canada) (a "Flow-Through Unit Share") and one-half of one non-transferrable common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant a "Warrant"). Each such Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.27 per common share until April 4, 2016.
In connection with the Offering, the Company has paid an aggregate of $49,525 in finder's fees to certain arm's length parties, representing 5% of the proceeds received from subscribers that were introduced by such parties.
The Flow-Through Unit Shares and Warrants (including the underlying common shares) issued under the Offering are subject to a four-month hold period which expires August 5, 2014. The Offering is subject to final acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.
The proceeds from the Offering will be used to fund exploration at the Company's Tetagouche property, New Brunswick. Exploration activities will be focused on determining the source of the high-grade Zn-Pb-Ag-Au boulders, found 1 km to the east of Tetagouche. Additionally, the company's 5 historical deposits will be evaluated and, where warranted, subjected to further drilling. Additional information is available in the Wolfden Press Release dated December 9, 2013.
