/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/
TORONTO, June 15, 2016 /CNW/ - Anaconda Mining Inc. ("Anaconda" or the "Company") (ANX: TSX) is pleased to announce that it has appointed Red Cloud Klondike Strike Inc. (the "Agent") to sell by way of private placement up to 28,571,429 flow-through units of the Company (the "Units") on a best-efforts basis. The Units are at a price of $0.07 per Unit to raise aggregate gross proceeds of up to $2,000,000 (the "Offering"). The Company has also granted the Agent an option, exercisable in whole or in part any time up to 48 hours before the closing of the Offering, to arrange for purchasers of additional units of the Company having the same composition, terms and price as the Units to raise additional gross proceeds of up to $300,000 (the "Option").
"The Company plans to use the proceeds raised to accelerate its exploration program near the 1,200-tonne-per-day Pine Cove mill where it has successfully identified several higher-grade, near-surface exploration targets," commented Company President and CEO, Dustin Angelo. "Our top priority continues to be the growth of near-surface, higher-grade mineral resources that would help increase production, lower unit costs and improve the Company's internal-rate-of-return to shareholders."
Each Unit will consist of one flow-through common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a "Warrant") to be issued on a non-flow-through basis. Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company (a "Warrant Share") at a price of $0.10 for a period of 12 months from the closing date of the Offering. On a per-Unit basis, the Company will allocate $0.0699 of the price per Unit to each flow-through common share and $0.0001 of the price per Unit to the Warrant. An amount equal to the gross proceeds from the flow-through common shares ($0.0699 per flow-through common share) will be used to incur Canadian exploration expenses, as defined under the Income Tax Act (Canada), that will be renounced by the Company in favour of the purchasers of Units (including any units sold pursuant to the Option) with an effective date of no later than December 31, 2016.
It is expected that the proceeds of the Offering will be used for surface exploration activities to test targets located within processing distance of the Company's Pine Cove mill (i.e. Stog'er Tight, Goldenville, Argyle and Viking).
It is anticipated that the private placement will close on or before July 8, 2016, and is subject to the completion of formal documentation, receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange, and other customary conditions.
All of the securities sold pursuant to the Offering (including any securities sold pursuant to the Option) 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.
This press release is not an offer or a solicitation of an offer of securities for sale in the United States. The Units and the common shares and Warrants have not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration.
