TORONTO, Jan. 7, 2016 /CNW/ - Richmond Minerals Inc. (the "Corporation") is pleased to report the closing of its previously announced non-brokered private placement financing. The Corporation raised aggregate gross proceeds of $121,010 through the sale of 585,000 non flow-through ("hard dollar") units and 1,143,714 flow through ("FT") units, both priced at $0.07 per unit. The Corporation paid an aggregate of $1,982 in finder's fees.
Each hard dollar and FT unit consisted of one common share of Richmond and a ½ common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share of Richmond at a price of $0.12 per common share until the date which is 18 months following the closing of this Offering, whereupon the warrants expire. All securities issued are subject to a four month statutory hold period, and completion of this Offering is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The net proceeds from the sale of the hard dollar and FT units will be used to fund continued diamond drilling of the Corporation's Ridley Lake project positioned in the heart of the Swayze Greenstone belt approximately 23 miles east of the Goldcorp's Borden Gold Project located just outside Chapleau, Ontario
