(TSX-V: SMY) (OTCQB: SHCMF) is pleased to announce that the Company has closed the first tranche of its previously announced non-brokered private placement offering of 18,540,000 flow-through common shares of the Company at a price of $0.25 per FT Share and 3,711,113 units at a price of $0.18 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $5,303,000.
Each Unit consists of one common share and one common share purchase warrant in the capital of the Company. Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company for a period of 24 months from the date of issue at an exercise price of $0.25 per Warrant Share, subject to adjustment pursuant to the terms of the Warrant.
The Company intends to use the proceeds from the FT Offering to incur eligible Canadian Exploration Expenses and flow-through mining expenditures, as defined under the Income Tax Act (Canada), that will be renounced in favour of the purchasers with an effective date of no later than December 31, 2022. The Company intents to use the proceeds from the Unit Offering for general working capital purposes.
The Company has agreed to pay finder’s fee to certain finders with respect to certain purchasers consisting of a cash fee totaling $281,130 and 1,141,833 non-transferable finder’s warrants. Each Finder’s Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.35 per common share for a period of 12 months from the date of issuance.
All securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement are subject to a statutory four-month hold period expiring on April 23, 2022. The Private Placement is subject to receipt of final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The Company closed the majority of the FT Offering as part of this initial tranche of the Private Placement in order to ensure closing occurred prior to year-end as is necessary for the purposes of its proposed timeline for renouncing Canadian Exploration Expenses pursuant to the Income Tax Act (Canada). The Company anticipates closing the approximately $9.7 million remaining under the Private Placement under one or more additional tranches in the near future.
