Rio Silver's Private Placement Oversubscribed

VANCOUVER , Oct. 22, 2019 /CNW/ - Rio Silver Inc. ("Rio Silver" or the "Company") (RYO.V) is pleased to announce that, further to its previous announcement on September 3, 2019 , its private placement of up to 10,000,000 units ("Units") of the Company at $0.05 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $500,000 (the "Offering") is now oversubscribed by an additional 1,520,000 Units or $76,000 in gross proceeds.

Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant (each, a "Warrant") of the Company.  Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.07 per share for a period of 18 months from issuance, unless the closing price of the common shares of the Company is $0.15 or higher for twenty (15) consecutive trading days any time after the date that is four months and a day after issue, in which case the Warrants will expire thirty (30) calendar days after notice to Warrant holders announcing an earlier expiry date. 

It is anticipated that certain insiders of the Company will participate in the Offering.  The proceeds from the Offering will be used to (i) continue its modest work on the Company's Niñobamba silver and gold project in Peru ; (ii) meet its immediate financial obligations and for working capital; and (iii) explore new projects in Peru .

The Company may pay certain finders' fees in connection with a portion of the Offering subject to the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange").  The securities issued herein will be subject to a four month statutory hold period.  The closing of the Offering is subject to the approval of the Exchange.
