Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 29, 2019) - Valterra Resource Corporation (TSXV: VQA) (OTCQB: VRSCF) ("Valterra" or the "Company") reported today that it plans to issue up to 15,000,000 units at $0.025 per unit in a private placement for total gross proceeds of $375,000. Each unit will consist of one common share and one share purchase warrant, with each warrant exercisable for four years with the right to purchase one common share at an exercise price of $0.05 per share. Finders' fees and commissions may be paid by Valterra in relation to this issuance. The Company will make provision for an over-allotment option (Greenshoe) to allow a purchase of up to 10% additional units beyond the number of units in this offering. The securities issued upon closing of this offering will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day from issuance.
Net proceeds from the private placement will be used to fund costs associated with the first phase of a two phase exploration program on the Los Reyes Au-Cu project, Mexico. A phase I, surface mapping and sampling program followed by a short 8 to 10 line-kilometre IP geophysical program over the target area; and a phase II initial six to eight core hole drill program anticipated in Q3/Q4, totaling 2,500m which will test a 600 metre strike length of the target Cu-Au skarn. Management believes that the Los Reyes Au-Cu project, Mexico, has significant near-term exploration potential for a high-grade Cu-Au mineral resource. Net proceeds will also be used for general working capital which includes: G&A, property maintenance and property option payments for all of the company's projects.
The private placement is subject to regulatory approval.
Valterra intends to make the private placement available to existing security holders in accordance with the provisions of BC Instrument 45-534 - Exemption from prospectus requirement for certain trades to existing security holders and in accordance with the provisions of various corresponding blanket orders and rules of other Canadian jurisdictions that have adopted the same or a similar exemption from prospectus requirement. The Company has set May 28th, 2019 as the record date for the purpose of determining existing shareholders entitled to purchase units pursuant to this exemption. The maximum number of units being offered is 16,500,000 units for maximum gross proceeds of $412,500 and the offering is not subject to any minimum subscription. Unless the Company determines to increase the gross proceeds of the offering and receives TSX Venture Exchange approval for such increase, if the offering is oversubscribed, Valterra will allocate the units issued under the offering to those subscribers whose subscriptions were first received by the Company.
The Company will also accept subscriptions from "accredited investors" (as defined in National Instrument 45-106 - Prospectus Exemptions) and may, at its discretion, also accept subscriptions pursuant to other prospectus exemptions available under applicable securities laws.
