Keyvan Salehi, President and CEO commented, “We are very pleased to have completed a successfully upsized financing, bringing our current cash balance to approximately $33 million. This will allow Nighthawk to complete this year’s drilling program in addition to providing a healthy balance to kick-off the 2022 drilling season.”
“The Phase I drill program for this year is expected to be completed towards the end of July, where we then transition to Phase II, which will follow up on the success from Phase I. Year to date we have only released results for 4,048 metres from our Grizzly Bear target within the Colomac Centre. Additional drilling results are expected in short order, and we look forward to providing an update in the near-term.”
The Units were sold at a price of $1.15 per Unit and the FT Units were sold at a price of $1.51 per FT Unit. Each Unit is comprised of one non flow-through common share and half of one common share purchase warrant. Each Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to acquire one common share at a price of $1.50 until July 7, 2023. Each FT Unit is comprised of one flow-through common share and half of one Warrant, issued on a flow-through basis. The common share and Warrant components of the FT Units will qualify as a “flow-through share” within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada).
The net proceeds from the sale of the Units will be used for general and administrative expenses and the gross proceeds from the sale of the FT Units will be used for exploration expenditures on Nighthawk’s Indin Lake Gold Property, located in Canada’s Northwest Territories. The Company’s drill program is focused on mineral resource expansion opportunities and testing greenfield targets to identify new, near-surface mineralization proximal to the main Colomac Deposit.

Nighthawk is a Canadian-based gold exploration company with 100% ownership of a district-scale land position within the Indin Lake Greenstone Belt, located approximately 200km north of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada. Within this largely under explored Archean gold camp, the Company has identified a number of high-priority targets all centred around a growing deposit. These targets lie within large regional deformation zones that contain gold mineralization which warrant additional exploration and follow-up. The main goals and objectives over the next 6-12months will be to carry out exploration to support mineral resource expansion opportunities as well as to foster new, near-surface discoveries that support the global mineral resource base.
The Company has an experienced and dedicated team with a track record of successfully advancing projects and is well funded and supported to advance its near-term goals and objectives.
