CALGARY, June 30 /CNW/ - Base Oil & Gas Ltd. ("Base" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: BOG) has closed the final tranche of its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") for aggregate gross proceeds of $395,549.90. The Company issued 1,318,499 common shares on a "flow-through" basis under the Income Tax Act (Canada), at a price of $0.30 per share pursuant to this tranche. In connection with this tranche of the Private Placement, the Company paid a 5% finder's fee on $380,549.90 of the gross proceeds received by the Company. The total gross proceeds under the Private Placement were $626,549.90.
The proceeds will be used towards financing the Company's share of the second earning well ("2nd Earning Well") under a previously announced farm-in agreement to develop Cardium production with a private company in the Pembina area.
