Certain common shares issued under the Offering qualify as ‘flow through shares’. The gross proceeds from the Flow Through Shares issued under the 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 (Canada) which will be renounced to the initial purchasers of the Flow Through Shares.
A finder’s fee of 6% in cash will be paid on a portion of the Offering in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. Eventus Capital Corp. and Red Cloud Securities Inc. acted as a finder in connection with portions of the Offering.
The issuance of common shares to Anglo Asian Mining Plc is considered a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions. Libero Copper 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 Libero Copper’s market capitalization.
