MONTREAL, July 4, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Colt Resources Inc. ("Colt" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it intends to sell, on a private placement basis (the "Offering"), a minimum of ten and a maximum of sixty units consisting of senior notes and warrants (the "Units"), for gross proceeds to the Company of a minimum of US$2,500,000 and a maximum of US$15,000,000. Each Unit consists of US$250,000 in principal amount of 10% Secured Senior Notes (the "Notes") and common share purchase warrants (the "Warrants") to purchase up to 555,555 common shares of the Company (the "Common Shares"). The Offering will be managed by TerraNova Capital Partners, Inc. and offered through its broker/dealer subsidiary TerraNova Capital Equities, Inc. (collectively, "TerraNova").
The maturity date of the Notes will be the earlier of (i) five years from the date of the first closing of the Offering, or (ii) the date on which the Company or an affiliate of the Company completes a financing in one or a series of closings of debt and/or equity securities in an amount equal to or greater than US$50,000,000. The Notes will bear interest at 10% per annum. Interest is calculated daily on the Notes and will be payable semi-annually on each June 30 and December 31 (each a "Payment Date"), commencing on December 31, 2013, at the election of the holder, subject to the provision below, (i) in fully-paid and non-assessable Common Shares of the Company at a price per share equal to the 30-day volume-weighted average closing price (VWAP) of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") for the 30-day period ending on the June 25 or December 25, as the case may be, immediately preceding the applicable Payment Date, subject to the approval of the Exchange prior to each issuance of Common Shares in payment of interest, or (ii) in cash. Each Note will be a senior obligation of the Company and will rank ahead of any subordinated indebtedness of the Company, present or future. Each Note will rank pari passu with all other Notes.
Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of US$0.45 per Common Share on or before five years from the date of the first closing of the Offering. The Warrants will be subject, at the Company's discretion, to an accelerated exercise after six months following the last closing of the Offering if the VWAP of the Common Shares is equal to or greater than 200% of the exercise price of the Warrants for a period of 30 days.
Where appropriate, the Company will pay a placement agent or finders' fee of up to 8% of the gross proceeds from the Offering and issue Common Share purchase warrants equal to up to 8% of the gross proceeds from the Offering divided by the VWAP of the Common Shares for a period of 30 days before their issuance.
The use of funds will be primarily directed towards the completion of a bankable feasibility study on the Company's Boa Fé Gold Property located in Portugal as well as for securing additional near term production assets and for general working capital purposes.
The Offering is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals including the approval of the Exchange. The Offering may be completed in one or more closings, the first closing being also subject to the issuance of a minimum of ten Units, for gross proceeds to the Company of US$2,500,000. The securities to be issued under the Offering will be subject to a four month hold period in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws.

The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States unless an exemption from such registration is available.
