The Offering was co-led by Canaccord Genuity Corp. and CIBC Capital Markets, and included Raymond James Ltd., PI Financial Corp. and Sprott Capital Partners LP. The Underwriters received a cash commission equal to 4% of the gross proceeds of the Offering.


Pursuant to the Offering, the Company issued 61,950,000 common shares at a price of C$1.05 per Share for gross proceeds of C$65,047,500.  The Underwriters also exercised the over-allotment option to purchase an additional 8,292,500 Shares for gross proceeds of C$8,707,125.


Resource Capital Fund VII L.P. which has a participation right pursuant to the terms of an investor rights agreement dated March 23, 2018, exercised its right and, as a result, following closing of the Offering, owns 19.28% of the total issued and outstanding Shares.

Following completion of the Offering, the Company will work to close its previously announced US$96 million senior secured debt facility with Coris Bank International and the US$35 million convertible note with RCF VII and Beedie Investments Ltd. to fully fund Bomboré into production. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering for the development and construction of the Bomboré Project as well as for general corporate purposes.
