THUNDER BAY, ON, May 10, 2016 /CNW/ - Wolfden Resources Corporation (WLF-TSX-V) ("Wolfden" or the "Company") today announces that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement (the "Offering") of up to 3,000,000 flow-through units (the "Flow-Through Units") at a price of $0.11 per Flow-Through Unit for gross proceeds of up to $330,000. Each Flow-Through Unit will consist of one common share of the Company that is a "flow-through share" within the meaning in the Income Tax Act (Canada) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant a "Warrant"). Each such Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.20 per common share for a period of 24 months from the closing date of the Offering. In connection with the Offering, the Company may pay finders' fees to certain arm's length parties in accordance with the rules of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") in consideration for their efforts in introducing subscribers to the Company.

The securities to be issued under this Offering will be offered by way of private placement in the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario and such other provinces or territories of Canada as may be determined by the Company, in each case, pursuant to applicable exemptions from the prospectus requirements under applicable securities laws. Securities issued under the Offering will be subject to a four-month hold period which will expire four months and one day from the date of closing of the Offering.

Closing of the Offering is anticipated to occur on or before May 31, 2016. The Offering is subject to acceptance by the TSXV and other customary conditions for a transaction of this nature.

The proceeds for the offering will be used for exploration on the Company's Clarence Stream gold project in New Brunswick and/or on Wolfden's other Canadian mineral exploration projects. The following mineral resource estimate1 for the Clarence Stream project with an effective date of December 2009 was previously disclosed by Wolfden in 20122.

Notes:

  1. CIM Definitions were followed for Mineral Resources.
  2. Mineral Resources were estimated using an average gold price of US$1,000/oz and assumed operating costs.
  3. Mineral Resources are based on a cut-off grade of 3.0 g/t Au.
  4. Wireframes at 3.0 g/t Au and a minimum thickness of two metres were used to constrain the grade interpolation.
  5. High gold grades were cut to 30 g/t Au prior to compositing. Uncut average grades are listed for comparative purposes only.
  6. Several blocks less than 3.0 g/t Au were included for continuity or to expand the lenses to the two metre minimum thickness.

 

ABOUT WOLFDEN RESOURCES:

2Mineral resources which are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. The estimate of mineral resources may be materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title, socio-political, marketing or other relevant issues. The quantity and grade of reported inferred mineral resources in this estimate are uncertain in nature and there has been insufficient exploration to define these inferred mineral resources as an indicated or measured mineral resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in upgrading them to an indicated or measured mineral resource category.
