TORONTO, March 19, 2020 /CNW/ - LAURION Mineral Exploration Inc. (TSX.V: LME and OTCPINK: LMEFF) ("LAURION" or the "Corporation") today announced that it is proposing to complete a flow-through and non flow-through private placement on a non-brokered basis (the "Private Placement"). Under the flow-through portion of the private placement, the Corporation intends to raise up to approximately $100,000 in gross proceeds by issuing up to approximately 606,061 flow-through units (the "FT Units"). Under the non flow-through portion of the private placement, the Corporation intends to raise up to approximately $60,000 in gross proceeds by issuing up to approximately 363,637 non flow-through units (the "Non-FT Units" and collectively with the FT Units, the "Units"). Pursuant to the Private Placement, the Units will be issued at a price of $0.165 per Unit.
Each FT Unit will consist of one common share of the Corporation to be issued as a "flow-through share" (as defined in subsection 66(15) of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the "Tax Act")) (each, a "FT Share") and one common share purchase warrant (each, a "Warrant"). Each Non-FT Unit will consist of one non flow-through common share of the Corporation and one Warrant. Each Warrant (whether comprising part of a FT Unit or a Non-FT Unit) will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one non flow-through common share of the Corporation at a price of $0.21 per share for a period of 12 months from the date of issuance.
As at the date hereof, the Corporation has accepted subscription agreements for the Private Placement in aggregate gross proceeds of $118,000.
The gross proceeds allocable to the FT Shares comprising the FT Units will be used for "Canadian exploration expenses" (within the meaning of the Tax Act), which will qualify, once renounced, as "flow-through mining expenditures", as defined in the Tax Act, which will be renounced with an effective date of no later than December 31, 2020 (provided the subscriber deals at arm's length with the Corporation at all relevant times) to the initial purchasers of FT Units in an aggregate amount not less than the gross proceeds raised from the issue of the FT Units which are allocable to the FT Shares. The Corporation intends to use the net proceeds from the issue of Non-FT Units for exploration activities and general working capital purposes.
In connection with the Private Placement, the Corporation may pay finders' fees in the form of cash commissions and finder's warrants having the same attributes as the Warrants.
The closing of the Private Placement is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX-V"). All securities that are issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to, among other things, a hold period of four months and one day in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws.
