“This private placement is to be completed primarily with existing institutional and strategic investors and will enable us to continue with drilling at our Niblack Project, while we await assays from our Q4 2020 Drill Program on the Property,” said Robert McLeod, President and CEO of Heatherdale. “Additionally, our name change to Blackwolf Copper and Gold reflects the spirit and new Vision for our Company.”
The Company also announces that, subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, the Company plans to change its name to Blackwolf Copper and Gold Ltd. and its ticker symbol to BWCG. The Company expects the name change to be effective after the Offering closes in April 2021.

The Company will pay to certain finders a cash fee equal to 6% of the gross proceeds from the sale of common shares to subscribers introduced by a particular finder (the “Found Common Shares”) and will issue finder warrants equal to 6% of the Found Common Shares sold pursuant to the Offering.
The net proceeds of the Offering will be used to fund exploration activities on the Company’s Niblack Cu-Au-Zn-Ag Project in Alaska, further Property Investigations and working capital purposes.
Certain directors and officers of the Company are expected to acquire securities under the Offering. Such participation would be considered to be a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”).
