TORONTO, Feb. 9, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Bell Copper Corporation (the "Company") (TSXV: BCU) is pleased to announce a brokered private placement by D&D Securities Inc. (the "Agent") to raise up to $2,000,000 on a best efforts basis (the "Financing"). Pursuant to the Financing, the Company will offer for sale through the Agent up to 25 million units (the "Units") at a price of $0.08 per Unit, with each Unit consisting of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of $0.12 for a period of 18 months from the closing date of the Financing.
The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Financing primarily to fund the completion of the feasibility study and ongoing development of the La Balsa project in Mexico, to fund the Company's continuing efforts to close the acquisition of the Van Dyke project in Arizona, and for general working capital purposes.
Upon the closing of the Financing, the Agent will receive a cash commission equal to 7% of the gross proceeds raised from the sale of the Units. The Company will also issue common share purchase warrants to the Agent on the closing date, which will entitle the Agent to purchase that number of common shares of the Company equal in number to 10% of the aggregate number of Units sold in the Financing at a price of $0.10 per common share for a period of 18 months from the closing date of the Financing.
