Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - June 9, 2020) - SilverCrest Metals Inc. (TSX: SIL) (NYSE American: SILV) ("SilverCrest" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the filing of a final short form base shelf prospectus ("Prospectus") to provide the Company with the flexibility to take advantage of equity, debt, convertible debt and other financing opportunities that may arise during the 25-month effective period of the Prospectus.
The Prospectus has been filed in each of the provinces of Canada, except Quebec, and a corresponding shelf registration statement on Form F-10 ("Registration Statement") was also filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and the Multijurisdictional Disclosure System established between Canada and the United States. These filings enable offerings of common shares, warrants, subscription receipts, debt and convertible debt securities or units of up to an aggregate initial offering price of Cdn. $200 million at any time during the period the Prospectus is effective.
N. Eric Fier, CEO of SilverCrest commented, "We currently have US$164 million dollars in the bank and are fully financed for Las Chispas mine construction. The filing of this shelf prospectus, with a window of 25-months, puts us in a position to rapidly complete a potential future financing to enable us to continually drill through the construction period and maintain strategic flexibility if other opportunities arise."
Copies of the Prospectus and the Registration Statement may be obtained by contacting SilverCrest at Suite 501, 570 Granville Street, Vancouver, British Columbia V6C 3P1, Attention: Chief Financial Officer. Copies of the Prospectus and the Registration Statement are also available at www.sedar.com and www.sec.gov, respectively.
The Registration Statement filed with the SEC has not yet become effective. Until the Registration Statement becomes effective, no securities may be sold, nor may offers to buy be accepted. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell any securities or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities, nor will there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. If any securities are offered under the Prospectus or Registration Statement, the terms of such securities and the intended use of any net proceeds will be established at the time of such offering and will be described in a Prospectus supplement filed with the applicable Canadian securities regulatory authorities and the SEC at the time of such an offering and would be made available by SilverCrest at the above address.
