MONTREAL, March 16, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - ALGOLD RESOURCES LTD. (TSXV: ALG – the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that in conjunction with its previously-announced bought deal offering (the "Bought Deal Offering") of units of the Corporation (the "Bought Deal Units"), it intends to complete a concurrent non-brokered private placement (the "Concurrent Offering", and together with the Bought Deal Offering, the "Offering") of units of the Corporation (the "Concurrent Units", and together with the Bought Deal Units, the "Units") conducted on the same terms as the Bought Deal Offering for additional gross proceeds of $500,000. In aggregate, the Corporation will issue a total of 34,500,000 Units under the Offering at a price of $0.20 per Unit (the "Issue Price") for aggregate gross proceeds to the Corporation of $6,900,000. Of that amount, a total of $6,400,000 (representing 32,000,000 Units) is being raised under the Bought Deal Offering through Beacon Securities Limited ("Beacon") and a syndicate of underwriters (the "Underwriters"). The remaining $500,000 (representing 2,500,000 Units) is being raised under the Concurrent Offering.
Each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Corporation (a "Common Share") and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a "Warrant") of the Corporation. Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at a price of $0.30 for a period of 24 months from the Closing Date (as defined below). The Warrants may be accelerated by the Corporation, at its sole option, at any time in the event that the closing volume-weighted average price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange, or such other exchange on which the Common Shares may primarily trade from time to time, is greater than or equal to $0.45 for a period of 20 consecutive trading days occurring no earlier than four months and one day from the Closing Date by giving notice to the holders thereof.
The Corporation has granted the Underwriters an option (the "Underwriters' Option") exercisable in whole or in part by Beacon, on behalf of the Underwriters, giving notice to the Corporation at any time up to 48 hours prior to the Closing Date to sell up to an additional 3,000,000 Units at the Issue Price for additional gross proceeds of up to $600,000. In the event the Underwriters' Option is exercised in full, the aggregate gross proceeds to the Corporation will be $7,500,000.
The closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about March 24, 2017 (the "Closing Date") and is subject to the completion of formal documentation and receipt of regulatory approval, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a four month hold period.
The net proceeds from the Offering will be used to carry out exploration drilling on the Corporation's Tijirit property and for working capital and general corporate purposes.
The Units to be issued under the Offering will be offered by way of a private placement in all of the provinces of Canada and may be offered in the United States on a private placement basis pursuant to exemptions from the registration requirements of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act").
The securities offered have not been, and will not be, registered under the U.S. Securities Act or any U.S. state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, United States persons absent registration or any applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable U.S. state securities laws.
