The Private Placement is MineralFields Group's seventh financing of GWR.
Pursuant to the Private Placement, the Company issued an aggregate of 6,250,000 units (the "Units"). Each Unit was priced at $0.28 and consisted of one "flow-through" common share and one-half of one transferable common share purchase warrant of the Company, with each whole warrant entitling the holder to purchase one common share of the Company until November 30, 2012 at an exercise price of $0.50 per share; provided however, that if the closing sale price of the common shares of the Company on the TSX Venture Exchange is greater than $0.70 for at least 20 consecutive trading days in the period from March 31, 2011 to November 30, 2012, the Company may accelerate the expiry date of the warrants by giving notice to the warrantholders by issuing a news release, and in such case the warrants will expire on the 30th day after the date on which such notice is given.
Limited Market Dealer Inc. ("LMDI") received the compensation described in the Company's news release dated November 29, 2010.
All the securities issued in the Private Placement are subject to a hold period which under the applicable securities laws and the Exchange policies expires on March 31, 2011.
"We are pleased that our relationship with MineralFields Group is ongoing as we continue to develop our mineral property in British Columbia and to explore our mineral property in Quebec", said Irvin Eisler, President of GWR.
