FenixOro Gold Corp. (CSE: FENX) (OTCQB: FDVXF) (FSE: 8FD)) is pleased to announce that it has closed a second tranche of its non-brokered private placement, previously announced on June 15, 2022. The Company today issued a total 11,555,555 Units at a subscription price of $0.18 per Unit for gross proceeds of $2,080,000. Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant, with each warrant being exercisable for one additional common share at an exercise price of $0.23 for a period of two years from their date of issuance. Closing of this second tranche of the Company’s Private Placement, brings the total gross proceeds raised to $2,449,000 and exceeds the Company’s intended minimum raise.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Private Placement to continue its Phase 2 drilling program at the Abriaqui Project, with a focus the area surrounding the newly discovered Prospera Vein (for further information see the Company’s press release of June 9, 2022). The Prospera discovery is significant in that it is near the top of a ridge in the southern block and has shown the highest grades of gold and silver ever recorded on the project. Over a continuous 100 meter sampling of the mine working the massive sulfide core averages 39.2 g/t gold (1.26 oz/t) and 254 g/t silver (8.17 oz/t).
All securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement are subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance. The Company also issued 30,00 broker warrants to arm’s length parties who assisted with the closing of Private Placement. Each such broker warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.23 for a period of 24 months from their date of issuance.
About FenixOro Gold Corp.
FenixOro Gold Corp is a Canadian company focused on acquiring gold projects with world class exploration potential in the most prolific gold producing regions of Colombia. FenixOro’s flagship property, the Abriaqui project, is located 15 km west of Continental Gold’s Buritica project in Antioquia State at the northern end of the Mid-Cauca gold belt, a geological trend which has seen multiple large gold discoveries in the past 10 years including Buritica and Anglo Gold’s Nuevo Chaquiro and La Colosa. As documented in “NI 43-101 Technical Report on the Abriaqui project Antioquia State, Colombia” (December 5, 2019), the geological characteristics of Abriaqui and Buritica are very similar. The report also documents the high gold grade at Abriaqui with samples taken from 20 of the veins assaying greater than 20 g/t gold. A Phase 1 drilling program has been completed at Abriaqui resulting in a significant discovery (see Press Releases March 19 and September 28, 2021). The Phase 2 drilling campaign has recently begun.
FenixOro’s VP of Exploration, Stuart Moller, led the discovery team at Buritica for Continental Gold in 2007-2011. At the time of its latest report, the Buritica Mine contains measured plus indicated resources of 5.32 million ounces of gold (16.02 Mt grading 10.32 g/t) plus a 6.02 million ounce inferred resource (21.87 Mt grading 8.56 g/t) for a total of 11.34 million ounces of gold resources. Buritica began formal production in November 2020 and has expected annual average production of 250,000 ounces at an all-in sustaining cost of approximately US$600 per ounce. Resources, cost and production data are taken from Continental Gold’s “NI 43-101 Buritica Mineral Resource 2019-01, Antioquia, Colombia, 18 March, 2019”). Continental Gold was recently the subject of a takeover by Zijin Mining in an all-cash transaction valued at C$1.4 billion.
