TORONTO, Oct. 30, 2017 /CNW/ - Anaconda Mining Inc. ("Anaconda" or the "Company") (TSX: ANX) is pleased to announce that, due to strong demand from investors, it will be increasing the size of its non-brokered private placement (the "Offering") previously announced on October 20, 2017. The Offering will now consist of up to 25,812,500 common shares, which qualify as "flow-through shares" within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada), ("FT Shares") at a price of $0.08 per FT Share, and up to 14,388,424 units of the Company (the "Units") at a price of $0.065 per Unit, for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $3,000,248. All other terms of the Offering will remain as previously announced. The Offering is expected to close on or about October 31, 2017 and remains subject to certain conditions, including, but not limited to, the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange.
"Despite the generally challenging capital markets environment for Canadian junior resource companies, we are pleased that we continue to be well supported by our existing shareholder base and were able to attract new retail and institutional investors into our flow-through share offering. This financing will allow us to continue to invest in exploration and development initiatives at the Goldboro and Point Rousse Projects, which will enable us to demonstrate to the market the mineral resource and production growth potential of both projects."
~ Dustin Angelo, President and CEO
