Libero Copper & Gold Corporation (TSX-V: LBC) (OTCQB: LBCMF) (DE: 29H) is pleased to announce that the non-brokered private placement announced on February 3, 2021 and upsized on February 9, 2021 was closed on February 22, 2021.  The Offering consists of 6,000,000 Units at a price of $0.50 per Unit and 7,272,726 Units at a price of $0.55 per Common Share for gross aggregate proceeds of $7,000,000.  Eventus Capital Corp. acted as a finder in connection with the Offering.


“Libero has just 43 million shares outstanding, great liquidity, a strengthened management team and board, and four significant porphyry copper projects with three fully funded drill programs,” comments Ian Harris, Chief Executive Officer. “With the copper price over $4 per pound, 2021 is going to be an exciting year for Libero Copper.”


Each Unit consists of one Common Share and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant. Each Warrant shall be exercisable to acquire one Common Share at a price of $0.75 per Warrant Share until February 22, 2023. If the closing price of the Common Shares is at a price equal to or greater than $1 for a period of 10 consecutive trading days, Libero will have the right to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants by giving notice via a new release to the holders of the Warrants that the Warrants will expire on the date that is 30 days after the issuance of a said news release.


Common Shares issued under the FT Offering qualify as ‘flow-through shares’.  The gross proceeds from the FT Offering will be used to incur ‘Canadian exploration expenses’ that will qualify as ‘flow-through mining expenditures’ as those terms are defined in the Income Tax Act which will be renounced to the initial purchasers of the Flow-Through Shares.


The net proceeds will be used for drilling the Big Red, Big Bulk, and Esperanza porphyry copper projects and general working capital purposes. A Finder’s Fee of 6% was paid in cash or Units on a portion of the Offering. Securities issued in the Offering are subject to a statutory hold period expiring on June 23, 2021.
