Mayfair Gold Corp.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mayfair Gold Corp. (“Mayfair” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: MFG; OTCQB: MFGCF) today announced the closing of its previously announced private placement of flow-through and non-flow-through common shares (the “Offering”) for aggregate gross proceeds of $12,047,000.

The Company issued 2,040,000 common shares on a charity flow-through basis (the “FT Shares”) at a price per FT Share of $2.94, and 2,881,000 non-flow-through common shares (the “Shares”) at a price of per common share of $2.10. The Offering price per FT Share represents a premium of 38% over the closing price of Mayfair Gold common shares on the TSX.V on October 10, 2023.

The FT Shares and Shares issued under the Offering are subject to a four month hold period expiring on March 3, 2024. Finder’s fees were paid on a portion of the Offering.

All proceeds from the sale of FT Shares will be used for expenditures that qualify as Canadian Exploration Expenses (CEE) within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada). The Company will renounce such CEE expenditures with an effective date of no later than December 31, 2023.

The net proceeds of the Shares issued under the Offering will be used to further Mayfair’s successful exploration program, and engineering and metallurgical studies at the Fenn-Gib gold project in the Timmins region of Ontario. A portion of the net proceeds will be reserved for working capital.

An investment fund was issued 2,286,000 Shares under the Offering. The fund owns shares of the Company constituting in aggregate more than 10% of the Company’s issued and outstanding capital. Accordingly, the fund’s subscription constituted a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Shareholders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”).

The issuance of the Shares to the related party was exempt from the valuation requirement of MI 61-101 under the exemption in section 5.5(b) of MI 61-101 in that the Company’s shares are not listed on a specified market, and was also exempt from the minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 under the exemption in section 5.7(a) of MI 61-101 in that the fair market value of the consideration for the securities issued to the related parties did not exceed 25% of the Company market capitalization.

None of the securities sold under the Offering will be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and no such securities may be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell nor the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
