TORONTO, Sept. 17, 2012 /CNW/ - Red Tiger Mining Inc., (TSXV: RMN), (the "Company") announces that it intends to carry out, subject to approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"), a non-brokered private placement to insiders of the Company ("Insiders") and others for gross proceeds of up to USD$2,500,000 (the "Private Placement"). The proceeds will be used by the company for working capital which was depleted by July's previously announced flood at the Luz del Cobre mine, which is owned by the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, Minerales Libertad, S.A. de C.V..
The Private Placement will consist of up to 6,068,750 units of the Company (each, a "Unit"), at a price of CND$0.40 per Unit. Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (each, a "Common Share") along with one Common Share purchase warrant (each, a "Warrant"). Each warrant may be exercised for one additional Common Share at a price of CND$0.60 per Common Share for a period of three years from the closing of the Private Placement. No commission or finder's fee will be paid in connection with the Private Placement. Of the gross proceeds, approximately USD$2,000,000 is expected to be subscribed for by Insiders, with the balance reserved for non-Insiders. Non-insiders interested in participating are urged to contact the company.
Units will be offered pursuant to exemptions from prospectus requirements of applicable securities legislation. Securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to a hold period of four months and a day from the date of issuance of the securities.
As Insiders will participate in the Private Placement, any such subscriptions will be considered to be related party transactions within the meaning of TSXV Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"). The Company intends to rely on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(b) and 5.7(a) of MI 61-101 in respect of such Insider participation.
