Copper North Announces Loan Conversion
Vancouver, British Columbia - Copper North Mining Corp. ("Copper North" or the "Company") (TSX.V:COL) announces that it will repay the loan (the "Loan") provided by an insider of the Company (the "Lender") through a combination of shares and cash as part of its on-going efforts to reduce the Company's outstanding debt. The conversion of the Loan to equity allows the Company to significantly improve its balance sheet while spending a minimal amount of cash.
As announced on May 8, 2013, the Lender provided Copper North with the $300,000 Loan that carried an interest rate of eight percent (8%) per year. In consideration of the risk taken by the Lender, the Lender was also entitled to a bonus of shares equal to 20% of the principal amount of the Loan.
In accordance with the loan agreement, the Company will repay all amounts due to the Lender under the Loan with a combination of cash and shares. The Company will pay $43,000 in cash and issue 6,860,000 common shares at a deemed price of $0.05 per share to settle amounts owing to the Lender for principal, interest and bonus shares. The issuance of shares is subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange. The shares will be subject to a four month and one day hold.
