OTTAWA, Sept. 23, 2015 /CNW/ - Northern Shield Resources Inc. ("Northern Shield" or the "Company") [TSX-V: NRN] is pleased to announce that it has completed a non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") of 6,000,000 units ("Units") at a price of $0.05 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $300,000. Each Unit is comprised of one common share in the capital of Northern Shield (a "Common Share") issuable on a "flow-through" basis pursuant to the Income Tax Act (Canada) and one half of one Common Share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each whole warrant is exercisable for one Common Share at a price of $0.075 per share until September 21, 2017. The Common Shares and Warrants underlying the Units are subject to a four month hold period from the date of issuance and the Private Placement remains subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
A cash finder's fee of $18,000 was paid, and 18,000 Warrants were issued, to certain finder's in connection with the Private Placement. Each such Warrant is exercisable to acquire one Common Share at a price of C$0.075 per share until September 21, 2017.
Proceeds from the Private Placement will be used to incur eligible Canadian Exploration Expenditures and Flow-through Mining Expenditures to advance the Company's Huckleberry Cu-(Ni-PGE) project ("Huckleberry") in the Labrador Trough region of northern Quebec. Northern Shield discovered significant Cu-(Ni-PGE) mineralization at Huckleberry earlier this year where the assay results of 22 samples collected from the property averaged 1.4% Cu, 0.14% Ni and 1.4 g/t PGE+Au with a high of 10.6% Cu and 16.9 g/t PGE+Au. A field crew will be immediately mobilized to Huckleberry and the Labrador Trough.
The program at Huckleberry will be overseen by Christine Vaillancourt, P. Geo., a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101. Samples will be analyzed by ALS Global in Sudbury, Ontario and in Vancouver, BC, for Au, Pt and Pd by Fire Assay with ICP-AES finish and base metals by four acid digestion and ICP-AES.
Northern Shield Resources Inc. is a Canadian-based mineral exploration company built around its platinum group element (PGE) expertise, which forms the basis of its exploration in eastern Canada.
