TORONTO, Sept. 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BWR Exploration Inc. (TSX.V: BWR) (“BWR” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the closing of the first tranche (the “Closing”) of the previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) for aggregate gross proceeds of $360,000, on September 16, 2020, through the purchase of 7,200,000 Units consisting of 7,200,000 common shares (“Common Shares”) plus 3,600,000 warrants, issued in connection with the Closing.
As previously announced, each Unit consists of 1 Common Share, plus one half of one common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”) of the Company. Each Full Warrant will expire 36 months from the date of issue (the “Full Warrant Expiry Date”) and will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share (a “Full Warrant Share”) at a price of $0.075 per Full Warrant Share within 24 months from the date of issue and for the period that is for 24 months plus one day from the date of issue until the Full Warrant Expiry Date at a price of $0.10 per Full Warrant Share.
All securities issued have a hold period of 4 months plus one day, which expires on January 17, 2021 pursuant to the Closing.
The gross proceeds raised were $360,000. However, as previously announced, the Unit Offering was for aggregate proceeds of up to $500,000, so the remaining available Units in the Offering are 2,800,000 Units for aggregate proceeds of $140,000 which remain open and available. The Company has elected to complete a further closing on or about September 18, for all or a portion of the above residual amount.
While the Unit Offering was effected by the Company on a non-brokered basis, the Company paid finder’s fees to an arm’s-length third party, Raymond James Ltd. (the “Broker”), consisting of: $4,800 cash commission representing 8% of the gross proceeds of the Unit Offering raised by the Broker; and (ii) 96,000 broker warrants (“Broker Warrants”) representing an amount up to 8% of the total number of Units of the Unit Offering raised by the Broker. Each Broker Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share of the Company at the Exercise Price of $0.075 for 24 months from the date of issue.
Two insiders participated in this financing, subscribing for 2,400,000 Units for net proceeds to the Company of $120,000.
The proceeds from the Offering will be used for general corporate purposes, with a focus on the Little Stull Lake Gold project located in Northeastern Manitoba.
