Miramont Announces Private Placement in Connection with Proposed Puno Gold Acquisition
Vancouver, BC – August 28, 2017: Miramont Resources Corp. (CSE: MONT) ("Miramont" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it will be undertaking a private placement offering of units ("Units") at a price of CDN$0.30 per Unit (the "Offering Price") for aggregate gross proceeds of up to CDN$3,500,000, with the option to expand the offering for gross proceeds of up to CDN$5,000,000 (the "Offering") in connection with its proposed acquisition of all of the issued and outstanding shares of Puno Gold Corporation ("Puno Gold"), as first announced on June 5, 2017 (the "Transaction").
The Offering will be comprised of both a brokered tranche (the "Brokered Tranche") and a non-brokered tranche (the "Non-Brokered Tranche").
Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (a "Common Share") and one common share purchase warrant (a " Warrant"), exercisable into one additional Common Share at a price of CDN$0.45 for a period of 24 months from closing of the Offering ("Closing").
The Company has engaged a syndicate of agents (the “Agents”) led by Red Cloud Klondike Strike Inc., and including Sprott Capital Partners, for the Brokered Tranche. The Company has engaged the Agents to act on a best efforts basis and will pay the Agents a cash commission equal to 7% of the gross proceeds from the Brokered Tranche (the "Agents’ Commission"). The Agents will also be granted warrants (the "Agents’ Warrants") to acquire that number of Common Shares that is equal to 7% of the total number of Units sold under the Brokered Tranche, with each Agents’ Warrant being exercisable at the Offering Price for a period of 24 months from Closing.
Similarly, finders under the Non-Brokered Tranche will receive cash finder's fees equal to 7% of the gross proceeds from the Non-Brokered Tranche (the "Finder's Commission") as well as finder's warrants (the "Finder's Warrants") to acquire such number of Common Shares equal to 7% of the total number of Units sold under the Non-Brokered Tranche, with each Finder's Warrant being exercisable at the Offering Price for a period of 24 months from Closing.
The net proceeds from the Offering will be used to fund exploration on the Peruvian properties held by Puno Gold which Miramont will acquire pursuant to the Transaction, as well as for general working capital.
Closing of the Offering is subject to a number of conditions precedent including, without limitation, receipt of all required corporate and regulatory approvals (including shareholder approval and the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange) and completion of the Transaction by no later than November 15, 2017. In accordance with applicable securities laws, all securities issued under the Offering will be subject to a hold period expiring four months and one day from Closing.
Trading of the Common Shares has been halted and will remain halted pending the satisfaction of all applicable requirements of the Canadian Securities Exchange. Miramont will issue a further news release as soon as further details are available regarding the resumption of trading.
