Vancouver, British Columbia - Copper North Mining Corp. ("Copper North" or the "Company") (TSX.V:COL) reports that it plans to issue shares for debt to satisfy amounts due to certain creditors (the "Shares for Debt Transaction") and announces the completion of the first portion of the flow-through private placement announced on December 8, 2015, as amended December 15, 2015 (the "Private Placement").
Copper North has entered into agreements with two arms' length creditors to satisfy indebtedness of $283,000 by proposing to issue 5,660,000 common shares at a price of $0.05 per common share. The Shares for Debt Transaction is subject to regulatory approval and all common shares issued will be subject to a four month hold period from the date of issuance.
The Company determined to satisfy the indebtedness with common shares in order to preserve its cash. Copper North believes that the proposed Shares for Debt Transaction will strengthen its balance sheet and increase the Company's attractiveness for future financings.
In addition, on December 18, 2015, the Company issued 3,333,333 flow-through units (the "FT Units") at a price of $0.045 per FT Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $150,000. Each FT Unit consists of one flow-through common share of the Company and half of one non-transferable warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.05 until December 18, 2017.
The Company paid finders' fees of $13,500 and issued 300,000 warrants (the "Finders' Warrants") in connection with this portion of the Private Placement. Each Finders' Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.05 until December 18, 2017.
All securities issued, including common shares to be issued upon exercise of Warrants or Finders' Warrants, are subject to a hold period and as such may not be traded until April 19, 2016.
The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Flow-through Placement for exploration at the Carmacks Project and/or the Thor property.
