Regulus Announces Grant of Stock Options

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Regulus Resources Inc. (“Regulus” or the “Company”) (TSX.V – REG) announces that incentive stock options have been granted to directors, officers, employees and consultants to purchase up to 5,550,000 common shares at a price of $1.60 per share for five years, pursuant to its Stock Option Plan.

The bulk of these options were granted to insiders to replace options that they had recently exercised well before their expiry dates to ensure that the Company had sufficient capital to continue funding the Phase 1 drill program at its AntaKori project in Peru while the Company was precluded from raising capital because of the Aldebaran spinout transaction. 

The Company currently has 90,994,594 shares issued and outstanding, along with 7,750,000 options (including the options described above) and 4,404,759 warrants outstanding.
