VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — North Arrow Minerals Inc. (TSXV-NAR) (“North Arrow” or “the Company”) announces that the non-brokered flow-through private placement announced on May 13, 2021 has been oversubscribed and has now closed.
North Arrow has issued 9,222,000 units priced at $0.11 per unit (the “Units”) for gross proceeds of $1,014,420. Each Unit consists of a single flow-through common share of the Company (each a “Flow-Through Share”) and one half of one transferable non-flow-through common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one additional non-flow-through common share of the Company at a price of $0.18 for a period of two years up to May 31, 2023. Insiders and advisors of North Arrow have participated in the private placement on the same terms as arms-length subscribers, subscribing for a total of 3,895,000 Units for aggregate proceeds of $428,450.
Proceeds from the private placement will be used to advance North Arrow’s Canadian diamond projects including a June 2021 exploration drill program at its 100% owned Loki Diamond Project in the Lac de Gras region of the Northwest Territories.
North Arrow intends to use the gross proceeds from the Flow-Through Shares for “Canadian exploration expenses” (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada)), with the Company using its best efforts to ensure that an amount equal to such proceeds will be used to incur Canadian exploration expenses related to North Arrow’s exploration projects. The Company will renounce such Canadian exploration expenses with an effective date of no later than December 31, 2021.
In connection with the private placement, North Arrow paid finders fees of $22,717.20. All securities issued in the private placement are subject to a hold period expiring October 1, 2021.
