Under the First Tranche of the Offering, Falco has issued an aggregate of 4,058,269 units of the Corporation at a price of C$0.23 per Unit and 4,464,286 flow-through shares of the Corporation  at a price of C$0.28 per FT Share, for aggregate gross proceeds of C$2,183,402.


Each Unit consists of one common share of the Corporation and one half of one Common Share purchase warrant. Each Warrant is exercisable to acquire one Common Share at a price of C$0.35 at any time on or before that date which is 24 months after the closing date of the First Tranche of the Offering. Each FT Share consists of one Common Share issued as a “flow-through share” within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada).


The Corporation intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of Units for the advancement of the Horne 5 Project in Québec as well as for working capital and general corporate purposes. The net proceeds from the sale of the FT Shares will be used to fund exploration on the Corporation’s other properties. The FT Shares will be issued as “flow-through shares” as defined in subsection 66(15) of the Income Tax Act. The Corporation will, in a timely and prescribed manner and form, incur (or be deemed to incur) resource exploration expenses which (i) will constitute “Canadian exploration expenses” as defined in subsection 66.1(6) of the Income Tax Act and “flow through mining expenditures” as defined in subsection 127(9) of the Income Tax Act, and (ii) will, for eligible Québec resident subscribers of FT Shares, be entitled to both additional 10% deductions provided for under section 726.4.10 and section 726.4.17.2 of the Taxation Act (Québec), in an amount equal to the amount raised pursuant to the sale of FT Shares, and the Corporation will, in timely and prescribed manner and form, renounce the Qualifying Expenditures (on a pro rata basis) to each subscriber of FT Shares with an effective date of no later than December 31, 2024 in accordance with the Income Tax Act and the Taxation Act (Québec).


In connection with the closing of the First Tranche of the Offering, the Corporation paid the Agents a cash commission totaling C$116,170 and have issued the Agents 446,859 non-transferrable compensation warrants. Each Broker Warrant entitles the Agents to purchase one Common Share of the Corporation at an exercise price of $0.23 per Broker Warrant at any time for a term of 24 months following the date of issuance.


All Common Shares and Warrants issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a hold period of four months plus one day from the date of issuance of the Offered Securities under applicable securities laws in Canada.


Insiders of the Corporation subscribed for 395,478 Units under the Offering. Each transaction with an insider of the Corporation constitutes a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions. The Corporation is relying on exemptions from the formal valuation requirements of MI 61-101 pursuant to section 5.5(a) and the minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 pursuant to section 5.7(1)(a) in respect of such insider participation as the fair market value of the transaction, insofar as it involves interested parties, does not exceed 25% of the Corporation’s market capitalization.


This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in the United States or in any other jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
