VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NINE MILE METALS LTD. (CSE: NINE, OTCQB: VMSXF, FSE: KQ9) (the “Company” or “Nine Mile”) announces that it has updated the terms of its flow-through (“FT”) private placement.
The FT private placement will consist of the sale of up to 2,666,667 FT Units at $0.15 each, for gross proceeds of up to $400,000. Each FT Unit will be comprised of one common share, issued on a flow-through basis (“FT Share”) and one Common Share purchase warrant, issued on a non-flowthrough basis (“Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one common share in the capital of the company (each, a "Common Share") at a price of $0.23 per Common Share for a period of 24 months from date of issuance. The FT Shares are intended to qualify as “flow-through shares” within the meaning of subsection 66(15) of the Income Tax Act (Canada).
In consideration for their services in introducing subscribers to the Company under the FT Private Placement, finders may receive commission of 7% cash and 7% common share purchase warrants, exercisable to purchase one common share at a price of $0.23 for a period of 24 months.
Since the Company is already fully funded to complete its work program on its Nine Mile Brook property, it will use the net proceeds of the FT private placement to carry out the current recommended work programs on its other properties in New Brunswick, Canada. This will include exploration and drilling on its Wedge and Canoe Landing properties and exploration on its California Lake property on or before December 31, 2023. This work will be eligible as "Canadian Exploration Expenses" that qualify as "flow-through mining expenditures" as both terms are defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada).
All securities issued in the FT private placement will be subject to a four-month and a day hold period.
