Copper North Completes First Part Of Private Placement
Vancouver, British Columbia -- Copper North Mining Corp. ("Copper North" or the "Company") (TSX.V:COL) announces that it has completed the first portion of the non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") announced on May 14, 2015.
The Company issued 7.4 million units (the "Units") at a price of $0.06 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $444,000. Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company (a "Share") and one half of one non-transferable warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional Share at a price of $0.09 until June 8, 2017. The Company issued 60,000 Shares as finders' fees ("Finders' Shares") related to the Units.
The Company issued 833,334 flow-through shares at a price of $0.06 per flow-through share for aggregate gross proceeds of $50,000. The Company issued 50,000 Finders' Shares related to the flow-through shares.
All Shares, flow-through shares, Finders' Shares, and any Shares issued upon exercise of Warrants are subject to a hold period and as such may not be traded until October 9, 2015.
The Company intends to use the proceeds from the flow-through portion of the Private Placement for exploration at the Carmacks Project and/or the Thor property. Copper North intends to use the proceeds from the Unit portion of the Private Placement to progress the Carmacks Project feasibility studies, and for working capital and general corporate purposes.
Harlan Meade, President and CEO of the Company of the Company, purchased 385,000 Units. His participation in the Private Placement constitutes a "related party transaction" as defined in Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"). This transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101, as neither the fair market value of the securities issued to, nor the consideration paid by, Dr. Meade exceeds 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
Copper North expects to complete a second tranche of the Private Placement later this month that will include both flow-through shares and Units. The Private Placement is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval and all securities will be subject to a four month hold period.
The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the Private Placement as the details of the participation therein by related parties of the Company were not settled until shortly prior to closing of the Private Placement and the Company wished to close on an expedited basis for sound business reasons.
