VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rock Tech Lithium Inc. (the “Company” or “Rock Tech”) (TSX-V: RCK; Frankfurt: RJIB) announces that it has amended the terms of a non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) announced on December 20, 2019. The original terms of the Offering included the issuance of up to 3,111,112 units (the “Units”) of the Company at a price of $0.45 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $1,400,000. Due to higher than expected demand, the Company has amended the Offering to include the issuance of up to 3,604,623 units for gross proceeds of up to $1,622,080. All other terms remain as disclosed on December 20, 2019.
Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each full warrant will entitle the holder to purchase an additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.70 per share for a period of 36 months from the date of closing, subject to accelerated expiry in certain circumstances.
“The increased demand for the Offering is a potential signal of a shift to more positive sentiment in the lithium market,” said Martin Stephan, director and Chief Executive Officer of Rock Tech. “The proceeds of this private placement will be used for further work on the baseline studies and continued metallurgical and processing tests, demonstrating the suitability of our material for conversion into value-added lithium chemicals.”
