Omai Gold Mines Corp. (TSX-V:OMG) is pleased to announce that further to its press releases dated June 2, 2021 and June 8, 2021, the Company has closed its non-brokered private placement with a lead order from Silvercorp Metals Inc. The Company issued 29,411,757 units at a price of C$0.17 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of C$4,999,999. Each Unit consists of one common share and one-half of a common share purchase warrant. Two such half warrants constitute a full warrant. Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price of C$0.23 for a period of 36 months from the closing date of the Offering.

The proceeds from the Offering will be used for an expanded exploration program at the Omai Gold Project.


Finders’ fees of C$201,068 cash and 1,182,752 broker warrants (“Broker Warrants”) were paid to certain finders. Each Broker Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of C$0.17 for a period of 36 months from the date of issuance.


Common Shares issued pursuant to the Offering and any Common Shares issued upon the exercise of Warrants or Broker Warrants will be subject to a four-month and one day hold period from the closing date in accordance with applicable securities laws of Canada.


The private placement is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.


About Omai Gold Mines Corp.
