TORONTO, July 27, 2016 /CNW/ - Anaconda Mining Inc. ("Anaconda" or the "Company") (ANX: TSX) is pleased to announce that it has issued 29,103,787 flow through units of the Company (the "Units") at a price of $0.07 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $2,037,265.09 pursuant to its previously announced private placement (the "Offering"). Each Unit consists of one flow-through common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a "Warrant") issued on a non flow-through basis. Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company (a "Warrant Share") at a price of $0.10 until July 27, 2017. On a per Unit basis, the Company has allocated $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 with an effective date of no later than December 31, 2016.
"The Company plans to use the proceeds raised to accelerate the surface exploration near the Company's 1,200 tpd Pine Cove mill where the Company has successfully identified several higher grade 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 grow our production profile, lower unit costs and improve the Company's internal-rate-of-return to shareholders."
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).
Red Cloud Klondike Strike Inc. acted as agent with respect to the Offering, pursuant to which it received a cash commission equal to 6% of the gross proceeds of the Offering (which for greater certainty, excluded securities acquired by investors identified by the Company) and 1,376,560 broker warrants each of which is exercisable to acquire one common share at a price of $0.10 until July 27, 2017.
All of the securities sold pursuant to the Offering are subject to a hold period which will expire on November 28, 2016 in accordance with the rules and policies of the Toronto Stock Exchange and applicable Canadian securities laws. The Offering remains subject to the final approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange.
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 were not offered or sold in the United States.
