/THIS NEWS RELEASE IS NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/
TORONTO, Jan. 8, 2019 /CNW/ - Richmond Minerals Inc. (TSX-V: RMD) ("Richmond or the "Corporation") wishes to correct its news release dated January 3, 2019 with respect to the status of the previously announced on January 2, 2019 non-brokered private placement of up to 4,000,000 flow-through units of the Corporation ("FT Units") at a price of $0.05 per FT-Unit. (the "Offering").
Each FT Unit consists of one (1) common share in the capital stock of Richmond (a "Common Share") issued on a flow-through basis within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and one-half (½) of one Common Share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.08 for (2) years following the closing date of the Offering.
In its January 3, 2019 release, the Company has inadvertently stated that the Company has completed the Offering. The Company wishes to retract this statement and to confirm that the completion of the Offering is subject to receipt of approvals of the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSX-V"). Richmond, having received sufficient interest in the Offering, expects to close the Offering in the coming days and will issue a subsequent news release announcing the closing.
The securities issued and issuable pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a four month and one day statutory hold period.
Richmond intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to fund "Canadian exploration expenses" (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada)) and for continued exploration on Richmond's assets and for general working capital purposes.
The Offering is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of TSX-V and applicable securities regulatory authorities.
