Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - October 22, 2021) - Provenance Gold Corp. (CSE: PAU) (OTCQB: PVGDF) (the "Company" or "Provenance") is pleased to announce the closing of a private placement for 11,973,999 units (each, a "Unit") at a price of $0.13 per Unit for gross proceeds of $1,556,619.87. Each Unit consists of one common share of the Issuer (each, a "Share") and one common share purchase warrant (each, a "Warrant") with each Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one additional common share (each, a "Warrant Share") of the Issuer at a price of $0.20 per Warrant Share until October 22, 2024.
Drilling continues at the White Rock gold project which is comprised of 258 lode mining claims (5,160 acres) with gold being hosted in silicified limestones and shales over an area of 3.2 km in length and a width of 1.3 km. Provenance has completed 32 holes in a continuing exploration program with many assays still pending. Along with the historic drilling of 67 holes, the company believes that this could be an extensive open-pit grade gold deposit, with grades similar to currently operating Nevada open pit mines.
Provenance's drilling program at its White Rock gold property in northeastern Nevada will be winding down soon for the season, with an expanded, focused program planned for next Spring. Steve Craig, project manager, states, "We are in the midst of a very successful program that is validating our belief that we have a big, shallow gold system."
The Company expects to be releasing further results from this drill program very soon.
Proceeds of this private placement will go towards the completion of the White Rock drill program, in addition to an upcoming drill program planned at its Mineral Hill property, and general working capital.
All securities issued in connection with the private placement are subject to a four-month-and-one-day statutory hold period in accordance with applicable securities laws until February 23, 2021. There were no finders' fees paid in connection with this placement.
One director of the Company participated in the private placement and acquired an aggregate of 100,000 Units. The participation in the placement by this director constitutes a related party transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101").
