Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (each, a “Common Share”) and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one additional Common Share at an exercise price of $0.30 for a period of 24 months from issuance.
Closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about February 15, 2021. All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a statutory hold period of four-months and one day. Completion of the Offering is subject to a number of conditions, including without limitation, receipt of TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) approval. Finder’s fees may be paid to eligible finders in accordance with the policies of the TSXV consisting of a cash commission equal to up to 7% of the gross proceeds raised under the Offering and finder warrants (“Finder Warrants”) in an amount equal to up to 7% of the number of Units sold pursuant to the Offering. Each Finder Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.20 for a period of 24 months following the closing date of the Offering. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for general corporate purposes and to satisfy payment obligations in connection with the acquisition of a gold mining project (the “Otú Project”) in the Amalfi, Segovia and Zaragoza regions of Antioquia, Colombia (the “Transaction”).
“Now that we have shareholder approval of the Transaction, we’re looking forward to bringing qualified investors an opportunity to participate in the Otú Project through an investment in the Company,” says Origin CEO Jaime Lalinde. “Following completion of the private placement, we’ll turn our focus to the planned exploration campaigns: drilling in the prospective brownfields and conducting geophysical surveys of the uncharted, potentially attractive greenfields.”
