VANCOUVER, July 17, 2016 /CNW/ - Resource Capital Gold Corp., TSXV: RCG ("RCG" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has finalized the terms and conditions of a non-brokered equity private placement (the "Offering"). The Offering will consist of the issuance of up to 25,000,000 common shares ("Common Shares") of the Company at a price of $0.12 per Common Share for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of up to $3,000,000.
The Common Shares issuable pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a hold period expiring four months and one day following the closing of the Offering. In connection with the Offering, certain shareholders, including an insider of the Company, plan to complete a "gypsy swap" whereby they would sell up to 12,500,000 Common Shares of the Company in pre-arranged trades over the facilities of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"), and then purchase up to 12,500,000 Common Shares under the Offering subject to regulatory approval, including final approval of the Exchange.
The Company may pay finders' fees in cash of up to 5% of the gross proceeds raised pursuant to the Offering and issue finders up to 1,150,000 Common Shares.
The Company intends to use the proceeds of the private placement to advance the recently announced Corcoran Canyon Silver-Gold Project through the completion of a 43-101-compliant resource calculation; extensional and infill drilling, metallurgical test work and other pre-feasibility study work.
RCG is also actively assessing additional precious metals projects in line with the Company's previously stated goal of creating a broad-based precious metals company focused on the Americas. Both development stage and producing assets are being reviewed, and RCG expects to make an announcement on the acquisition of one or more other projects in the near term.
The Offering is subject to all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
On behalf of the Board of Directors of Resource Capital Gold Corp.
