ORIGINAL: NorthWest Board Plans to Proceed by Equity Financing in Order That All Shareholders May Determine the Future of the Company

2023-11-21 09:44 ET - News Release

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NorthWest Copper (“NorthWest” or “the Company”) (TSX-V: NWST) – Following an extensive review of available financing options, the Board of Directors of NorthWest has determined that it is in the best interest of all shareholders to fund the Company via an equity financing that will comprise a rights offering and a concurrent private placement on the same terms. Discussions around any potential form of debt financing have been discontinued.

Grant Sawiak, Director and Executive Chair of NorthWest said "I and the rest of the Board appreciate the value of NorthWest’s properties. The current NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource estimates at Kwanika-Stardust and Lorraine (Table 1 & 2), as well as the exciting exploration potential at East Niv, underpin the Company’s value and have attracted interest from potential strategic partners. Additionally, the management team has identified compelling exploration targets at several of the Company’s properties which we intend to drill and conduct surveys on in 2024. We now must afford all shareholders the opportunity to determine the future of NorthWest, and we believe the best path to do so includes a rights offering financing, which provides all shareholders the ability to participate in proportion to their existing holdings''.

2 Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. There is no certainty that all or any part of the Mineral Resources estimated will be converted into Mineral Reserves in future. There has been insufficient exploration to define the inferred resources tabulated above as an indicated or measured mineral resource, however, it is reasonably expected that the majority of the Inferred Mineral Resources could be upgraded to Indicated Mineral Resources with continued exploration. The estimate of Mineral Resources may be materially affected by geology, environment, permitting, legal, title, taxation, sociopolitical, marketing or other relevant issues. Inferred Mineral Resources have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence and as to whether they can be mined economically.
