HALIFAX, NS, Dec. 5, 2022 /CNW/ - Zephyr Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: ZFR) ("Zephyr" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed the recently announced non-brokered private placement raising $320,000 through the issuance of 4,000,000 units at a price of $0.08 per unit. Each Unit consists of one common share and one whole common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant") of the Company (the "Units"). Each Warrant will be exercisable to purchase one common share of the Company for $0.12 for a period of twelve months from the closing date.
The expiry date of the Warrants may be accelerated by Zephyr at any time if the volume-weighted average trading price of the common shares is greater than or equal to $0.24 for any 20 consecutive trading days. If this occurs, the Company may accelerate the expiry date of the warrants by issuing a press release announcing the reduced Warrant term whereupon the Warrants will expire on the 30th calendar day after the date of such press release.
Net proceeds from the funds raised will be used to evaluate and pursue mineral opportunities in Zimbabwe, and for general working capital purposes. All securities issued in connection with the private placement, including the shares and warrants comprising the units are subject to a statutory four-month hold period that expires April 6, 2023. The private placement is subject to acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange and required regulatory approvals.
In connection with the closing, the Company paid a cash finder's fee of $11,200 and issued 140,000 finder's warrants to Leede Jones Gable; and a cash finder's fee of $560 and issued 7,000 finder's fee warrants to PI Financial Corp. Each finder's warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share of the Company at $0.12 per share at any time on or before December 5, 2023. The expiry date of the finder's warrants are also subject to the same acceleration clause as the Unit warrants.
