Equity Metals closes $2.74-million private placement

2023-01-17 17:24 ET - News Release

Mr. Joseph Kizis reports


Equity Metals Corp. has closed its previously announced flow-through, premium flow-through and non-flow-through private placement by issuing a total of 23,545,233 units for gross proceeds of $2,742,649.26.

The Company closed the final tranche of the Offering by issuing 10,500,000 non-flow-through units ("NFT Units") at a price of $0.10 per NFT Unit for gross proceeds of $1,050,000. Each NFT Unit consists of one non-flow-through common share and one warrant. As previously announced, the Company closed a first tranche of the Offering for gross proceeds of $1,692,649.26 by issuing 8,333,333 flow-through units (the "FT Units") at a price of $0.12 per FT Unit and 4,711,900 premium flow-through units (the "PFT Units") at a price of $0.147 per PFT Unit. The PFT Units were originally announced as charitable flow-through units; the PFT Units did not have a charitable aspect but were offered at a premium. Each FT Unit and PFT Unit consist of one flow-through common share and one warrant. The warrants for all units are the same with each warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one non-flow-through common share for a period of 3 years at a price of $0.15.

Securities issued pursuant to the final tranche of the Offering include common shares, share purchase warrants and finder's warrants issued as finder's fees, all of which carry a legend restricting trading of the securities until May 17, 2023.

The gross proceeds received from the sale of both the FT Units and PFT Units will be used for work programs on the Company's Silver Queen, Au-Ag, exploration property, in British Columbia. The net proceeds received from the sale of the NFT Units will be used for general working capital.

Two insiders of the Company subscribed for an aggregate 583,333 FT Units. Such participation is considered to be a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"). The Company is relying on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as the fair market value of the participation in the Offering by insiders does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101.

In connection with the Offering, the Company paid finders' fees comprised of an aggregate $56,155.68 and 490,764 non-transferable finder warrants, with each finder warrant exercisable to purchase one common share for a period of 3 years at a price of $0.15. The Offering and payment of finders' fees is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.

About Silver Queen Project

The Silver Queen project is a premier gold-silver property with over 100 years of historical exploration and development and is located adjacent to power, roads and rail with significant mining infrastructure that was developed under previous operators Bradina JV (Bralorne Mines) and Houston Metals Corp. (a Hunt Brothers company). The property contains two historical declines into the No. 3 Vein, camp infrastructure, and a maintained Tailings Facility.

The Silver Queen property consists of 45 mineral claims, 17 crown grants, and two surface crown grants totalling 18,852ha with no underlying royalties. Mineralization is hosted by a series of epithermal veins distributed over a 6 sq km area.

On December 1, 2022 (NR-12-22), the Company reported an independently estimated, Mineral Resource Estimate ("MRE") for Silver Queen which increased an earlier MRE, initially reported on July 16th, 2019, by +187% in the Indicated category and by +30% in the Inferred category on a AgEq basis with approximately 74% of the new MRE classified as Indicated Resources. The Company has expended C$6.75 million on exploration of the Silver Queen project since 2019 resulting in a very low discovery cost of $0.15/oz of added AgEq or $11/oz of added AuEq. The MRE remains open for additional delineation west of the Camp Target and within the Sveinson Target. In addition, there are several targets that have only been tested by a few drill holes and remain very attractive areas for new discoveries and MRE increase.

For more information on the recent MRE please refer to the Company's News Release NR-12-22 dated December 1, 2022 and NR-02-23 dated January 16, 2023.
