Anaconda Mining Inc. (TSX: ANX) (OTCQX: ANXGF) is pleased to announce that it has completed a first tranche of a non-brokered private placement of 8,671,952 units of the Company at a price of $0.41 per FT Unit, for aggregate gross proceeds of $3,555,500. Each FT Unit consists of one common share of the Company, which qualify as “flow-through shares” within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and one-half of one non-flow-through common share purchase warrant. Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.55 per Warrant Share until June 22, 2020. Anaconda expects to complete a second tranche of the private placement on or around June 26, 2018 for 2,219,000 FT Units, for additional aggregate gross proceeds of $909,790.
“We are very pleased with the high level of interest for this private placement which attracted strong institutional demand from established mining-focused investors, as well as existing shareholders. Since the acquisition of the Goldboro Project, we have achieved very impressive drill results and continue to demonstrate that the mineral resource is open for expansion. The proceeds from this placement will enable us to build upon our recent success of increasing the scale of the Goldboro deposit. At Point Rousse, we have announced a 5,000-metre drill program to expand the Argyle mineral resource and target two other high priority exploration targets within close proximity of the Pine Cove Mill. We are excited about the resource growth potential at Goldboro and Point Rousse and look forward to sharing the results as they come available over the next several months.”
~Dustin Angelo, President and CEO, Anaconda Mining Inc.
