Amarillo Gold Corporation (TSX-V:AGC) is pleased to announce that further to its news releases dated March 19, 2018, March 29, 2018, and April 2, 2018, the Company has successfully closed the second and final tranche of its previously-announced non-brokered private placement through the issuance of 4,244,447 units at a subscription price of $0.28 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of $1,188,445. Although the Company only initially announced its intention to raise up to approximately $3 million through the Private Placement, due to investor demand and over subscriptions the Company issued a total of 18,427,780 Units for gross proceeds of $5,159,778 in connection with the first and second tranches of the Private Placement.
Each Unit is comprised of one common share and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant. Each whole Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional Common Share at an exercise price of $0.38 for a period of 24 months following the date of issue, subject to customary adjustment provisions.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Private Placement for advancing the Company’s mineral exploration and development projects, and for general corporate purposes.
In connection with the closing of the Private Placement, the Company will pay a cash finder’s fee in the amount of $6,905 to Anarcho Capital Inc.
Certain insiders of the Company participated in the first tranche of the Private Placement. Such participation represents a related-party transaction under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions, but the transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the subject matter of the transaction, nor the consideration paid, exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
The Private Placement was approved by all of the independent directors of the Company. The number of Common Shares potentially issuable to insiders of the Company pursuant to the Private Placement (including any Common Shares issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants) represent not more than 10% of the Company’s currently issued and outstanding Common Shares on a non-diluted basis. Pursuant to the first tranche of the Private Placement, management of the Company subscribed for Units in an aggregate amount of $1 million.
Under applicable Canadian securities laws, all securities issued pursuant to the second tranche of the Private Placement are subject to, among other things, a statutory hold period of four months and one day, which expires on August 13, 2018. The Private Placement remains subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSX-V”).
Amarillo is developing a highly economic, open pit gold resource at its Mara Rosa Project in the mining friendly jurisdiction of Goias State in Brazil. An Updated Pre-Feasibility Study (NI 43-101 technical report) for the Mara Rosa Project was filed on SEDAR on May 4, 2017. In addition, Amarillo has an advanced exploration project with excellent grades at Lavras do Sul, also in Brazil. A Mineral Resource Estimate Study (NI 43-101 technical report) for Lavras do Sul was filed on SEDAR on October 4, 2010. Both projects have excellent nearby infrastructure. The Mara Rosa Project was awarded the main permit (LP) that gives social and environment permission to mine. This has allowed Amarillo to move forward and work on the installation permit (LI) for the Mara Rosa Project.
