NevGold Announces Closing of Second Tranche of Upsized C$2.35M Non-Brokered Private Placement Financing and Announces Shares-for-Debt Transaction






NevGold Corp. (TSX-V:NAU) (OTCQX:NAUFF) (Frankfurt:5E50) is pleased to announce closing of a second and final tranche of a non-brokered private placement financing (see previous News Releases dated December 20, 2023 and January 5, 2024) of 2,656,250 common shares of the Company issued at a price of C$0.32 per Common Share for gross proceeds of C$850k. The Company increased the total size of the Private Placement to $2.35 million gross proceeds due to investor interest. A total of 7,343,750 Common Shares were issued under the first and second tranches for $2.35 million gross proceeds.


NevGold CEO, Brandon Bonifacio, comments: “It is positive to see further demand for our no-warrant financing with strong participation from existing and new shareholders. The financing proceeds will be directed to high-potential opportunities at Nutmeg Mountain and other strategic efforts in the adjacent Hercules Copper District in Washington County, Idaho. We look forward to commencing field work which will lead to a very active 1H-2024 for the Company. The NevGold platform has made significant advances since our initial public listing in June-2021, and we will continue to build on our oxide, heap-leach gold resource base in the Western USA, while considering other value-generating opportunities for shareholders.”


The Company intends to use the aggregate net proceeds raised from the Offering for general working capital purposes and advancing strategic efforts at the Nutmeg Mountain Project and in the surrounding Washington County, Idaho district.


NevGold paid a cash finder’s fee of C$25,920 and issued 81,000 non-transferable finder’s warrants to an arm’s length finder in connection with the second closing tranche. Each Finder Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price of C$0.32 per share until February 16, 2025.


All securities of the Company issued in connection with the second tranche of the Offering are subject to a hold period expiring on June 17, 2024 in accordance with applicable securities laws. The Offering is subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.


Robert McKnight, Executive VP and Chief Financial Officer of the Company, has purchased an aggregate of 93,750 Common Shares under the second tranche of the Offering. The Insider participation in the Offering therefore constitutes a “related-party transaction” within the meaning of TSXV Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions. The Company is relying on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority security holder approval requirements of the related-party rules set out in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(a) of MI 61-101 as the fair market value of the Insiders participation does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the closing of the second tranche of the Offering as the details of the Offering and the participation therein by each “related party” of the Company were not settled until shortly prior to the closing of the second tranche of the Offering, and the Company wished to close the Offering on an expedited basis for sound business reasons. The Company obtained approval by the board of directors of the Company to the Offering. No materially contrary view or abstention was expressed or made by any director of the Company in relation thereto.


Shares for Debt


Additionally, the Company is pleased to announce that it has entered into a debt settlement agreement dated February 15, 2024 to settle outstanding debt in the amount of C$135,000 owing to an arm’s-length creditor by issuing to the creditor an aggregate of 421,875 Common Shares at a price of C$0.32 per Common Share. The NevGold Board of Directors has determined that it is in the best interests of the Company to settle the outstanding Debt by the issuance of Common Shares to preserve the Company’s cash for ongoing operations.


Closing of the Shares-for-Debt Transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including the approval of the TSXV. The Company intends to close the Shares-for-Debt Transaction as soon as practicable. The Common Shares to be issued pursuant to the Shares-for-Debt Transaction will be subject to a hold period of four (4) months and one (1) day from the date of issuance.
