QuestEx Gold & Copper Announces Closing of Oversubscribed Private Placement and Appointment of New Technical Advisors






QUESTEX GOLD & COPPER LTD. (TSX-V: QEX) formerly Colorado Resources Ltd., is pleased to announce that it has closed the non-brokered private placement  previously announced on August 26, 2020. Due to strong investor demand, the Company increased the gross proceeds of the Offering from $1,500,000 to $1,773,475 by issuing a total of 2,533,535 units at an issue price of $0.70.


Joe Mullin, CEO of QuestEx Gold & Copper comments“We are pleased with the strong investor support QuestEx has received in this private placement and I would like to thank our team and strong shareholder base. We are excited to use these funds to continue to unlock the value that we know is contained on our large land package in the Golden Triangle area of British Columbia.”


Each Unit consisted of one common share of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to acquire an additional common share of QuestEx at an exercise price of $1.00 per share, with an expiry of two years from the date of issuance.


Finders acting in connection with the Offering received aggregate cash fees of $47,040 and a total of 31,200 finders’ warrants, with the warrants having the same terms as those in the Offering.


The net proceeds from the Offering will be used for working capital purposes. All securities in connection with the Offering are subject to a four month hold period that expires January 29, 2021. The Offering remains subject to final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.


Certain Directors of the Company subscribed directly or indirectly for 192,649 Units in the private placement. The transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 in reliance on the exemptions set forth in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as neither the fair market value of the securities to be distributed in the Offering nor the consideration to be received for those securities, in so far as the Offering involves the insiders, exceeds 25% of the market capitalization. The Board of Directors approved the Offering by resolution on which the Directors did not vote with respect to their participation in the Offering.


Technical Advisor Appointments


QuestEx is pleased to announce the appointment of two new technical advisors: JoAnne Nelson, an emeritus BC Geological Survey geologist and leading expert on tectonics and metallogeny and John Bradford, an international mineral deposits expert.


Tony Barresi, President of QuestEx Gold & Copper comments


“We are delighted to have attracted technical advisors of JoAnne and John’s high calibre. Combined they have over 70 years of mineral deposit research and exploration experience, and both have expansive knowledge of the Golden Triangle and deep understandings of ore genesis. Their experience and expertise, along with those of QuestEx’s existing technical advisors, James Oliver and Todd Ballantyne, will be valuable in deciphering the geological controls on mineralization within QuestEx’s property portfolio, so that shareholder value can be enhanced through efficient and scientifically justified exploration.”
