Simon Quick, CEO of Canadian Copper. “We are very fortunate to have strong support from current and new shareholders for this non-brokered Private Placement. The seasonal timing and current market conditions are not easy for the junior sector; however, the Murray Brook acquisition is compelling and resulted in an oversubscribed financing. We look forward to sharing our future growth strategy for this asset upon closing the transaction.”
Each unit of the Private Placement consists of one common share of the Company and one-half of a share purchase warrant, with each whole warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share at a price of $0.18 per share at any time within 2 years from the date of issuance. The warrants will be subjected to an accelerated exercise clause in the event the Company’s share price exceeds $0.30 for 10 consecutive trading days on a volume weighted average price basis.
The Company paid finder’s fees to certain arm’s-length third parties consisting of a cash commission of up to 7% of the gross proceeds of the Private Placement for an aggregate amount of $7,585 and up to 7% in finder warrants at the same terms of warrants issued as part of the Private Placement for an aggregate of 63,210 finder warrants. A statutory four month plus one day hold period will apply to all securities issued in connection with the Private Placement.
Proceeds from the Private Placement will be used for the financing of the $750,000 cash payment to acquire the Murray Brook deposit, to update the Murray Brook deposit historical mineral resource estimate technical report projected for release in October 2023, and for general corporate working purposes.
