Finlay Minerals Closes Oversubscribed $2.64 Million Financing & Welcomes Crescat Capital’s Strategic Investment






Finlay Minerals Ltd. (TSX-V: FYL) is pleased to announce that, further to the Company’s news releases dated June 17 and June 25, 2021, the Company has closed, subject to receipt of final approval from the TSX Venture Exchange, its private placement financing for total proceeds of $2,643,777. As part of the Private Placement, Crescat Capital LLC, for certain funds of Crescat, has made a strategic investment in the Company representing a 9.1% ownership interest and 13% on a fully diluted basis. Crescat will have the right and option to participate in future financings to maintain its equity interest in the Company until such date that Crescat’s ownership in the Company falls below 5% of the then-outstanding common shares on a fully-diluted basis.


Finlay’s Silver Hope project is an underexplored, target-rich, polymetallic system associated with a composite intrusive center,” commented Quinton Hennigh, technical advisor to Crescat. “The Company has aggressive plans to further define some of the most robust targets and drill them. We are pleased to lead their recent capital raise to ensure this program is funded. We look forward to seeing what discoveries result from this focused exploration program.


Robert Brown, Finlay’s President & CEO stated:

I would like to thank the dedication and diligent work of the Finlay, Crescat, and Ascenta teams in completing this financing process. We, at Finlay, now look forward to starting an IP geophysics program in August, and core drilling in September on the Silver Hope project.


The Private Placement consisted of the issuance of: (i) a total of 17,653,081 non-flow through units  for gross proceeds of $1,588,777, at price of $0.09 per NFT Unit, with each NFT Unit comprising one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant; and (ii) a total of 8,791,667 flow through units, at a price of $0.12 per FT Unit for gross proceeds of $1,055,000, with each FT Unit comprising one common share of the Company which qualifies as a “flow-through share” within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and one Unit Warrant.


Each Unit Warrant entitles the holder of NFT Units or FT Units, as applicable, to acquire one additional common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.135 per Warrant Share for a period of twenty-four months from the closing of the Private Placement.


In connection with the closing of the Private Placement, the Company: (i) paid cash finder’s fees of $161,295 in aggregate to Ascenta Finance Corp. and PI Financial Ltd.; (ii) issued an aggregate of 1,511,323 finder’s compensation options to Ascenta; and (iii) issued 232,000 finder’s units in aggregate to CIBC Wood Gundy and Raymond James Ltd. Each Compensation Option entitles the holder to purchase one Unit at a price of $0.09 or $0.12, as applicable, for a period of twenty-four months expiring on July 9, 2023. All of the Units issuable on exercise of each Compensation Option and the Finder’s Units have the same terms as the Units issued to the subscribers of the Private Placement.


All securities issued under the Private Placement are subject to a four-month hold period expiring on November 10, 2021.


The Company expects to use the proceeds raised from the Private Placement to fund general and operating working capital, including Induced Polarization geophysical surveys of the Equity East Zone, expansion of the soil sampling grid, geological mapping and rock sampling, and further core drilling of priority Equity Silver and porphyry copper-type targets on the Silver Hope Property.


The securities being offered will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended and may not be offered or sold within the United States absent registration or an exemption from the registration requirements. This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities in the United States.
