QUÉBEC CITY, June 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Stelmine Canada (STH-TSXV) (“Stelmine” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has closed its recently announced non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”). A total of 5,384,614 units of Stelmine (the "Units") were issued at a price of $0.13 per unit for gross proceeds of $700,000. Each Unit comprised one common share of Stelmine and one-half of a common share purchase warrant. Each full warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share of the Company at $0.20 for a period of 36 months from issuance. The warrants are callable from Stelmine should the common shares of the company exceed $0.30 for a period of 20 consecutive trading days following the four-month hold.
Three (3) insiders of the Company participated in the private placement for aggregate gross proceeds of $16,750. These insiders purchased Units under the same terms as the other investors. The participation of these insiders is exempt from the formal valuation and shareholder approval requirements pursuant to Sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions, on the basis that the fair market value of such participation or the consideration paid by such insiders does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company.
All securities issued in connection with this Offering are subject to a hold period of four months and one day. The private placement is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. Stelmine has not filed a material change report in the 21 days preceding the placement other than in relation to the placement.
Stelmine has now raised total gross proceeds of $1.4 million this month in two separate financings with strategic investors. The funds will be used for exploration on the Courcy and Mercator Projects in the Caniapiscau region and for general working capital purposes. In connection with this placement, the Company will pay finder’s fees of $23,244.
