TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / February 26, 2021 / Murchison Minerals Ltd. ("Murchison" or the "Company") (TSXV:MUR) announces a further increase of the non-brokered private placement ("the Private Placement") to $800,000 (see press releases dated February 12 and February 16, 2021). The Private Placement is subject to all regulatory approvals with the net proceeds directed towards exploration, working capital and for other general and administrative costs.
The Company now proposes to issue up to 10,000,000 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.08 per Unit. Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (a "Common Share") and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant. Each whole common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant") will entitle the holder to acquire one additional Common Share (a "Warrant Share") for a period of eighteen (18) months from the date of closing (the "Closing Date") at an exercise price of $0.12 per Warrant Share.
A finder's fee may apply to a portion of the proceeds raised under the Private Placement in the amount of 6% cash. All securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to a four month and one day hold period from the date of issue in accordance with applicable securities laws. Proceeds from the Private Placement will be used by the Company for exploration, working capital and for other general and administrative costs.
It is anticipated that a director of the Company will acquire up to 3,750,000 Units under the Private Placement. Any such participation will be considered to be a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"). The transaction would be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 based on a determination that the securities of the Company are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") and that the fair market value of the Private Placement, insofar as it involves interested parties, would not exceed $2,500,000 or 25% of the market capitalization of the Company. The Private Placement was approved by all independent directors of the Company.
