April 15, 2021, Vancouver, BC – Heatherdale Resources Ltd. ("Heatherdale" or the "Company") (TSXV: HTR) announces that it has closed its previously announced private placement of common shares (the "Offering"). A total of 6,747,500 common shares (the "Common Shares") were sold at price of $0.80 per Common Share, for aggregate gross proceeds of $5,398,000. The proposed name change will follow shortly.
The net proceeds of the Offering will be used to fund exploration activities on the Company’s Niblack Cu-Au-Zn-Ag project located in Alaska, property acquisitions and working capital purposes.
The Company paid aggregate finder’s fees of $110,280 and issued 137,850 share purchase warrants (the “Finder’s Warrants”) in connection with subscriptions from subscribers introduced by certain finders. Each Finder’s Warrant is exercisable to acquire one share in the capital of the Company at an exercise price of $0.90 per share until April 15, 2022.
Certain insiders of the Company acquired 12,500 Common Shares pursuant to the Offering. Such participation is considered to be a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"). The Company is relying on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as the fair market value of the participation in the Offering by insiders does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the Offering, as the details of the Offering were not settled until shortly prior to closing and the Company wished to close on an expedited basis for sound business reasons and in a timeframe consistent with usual market practices for transactions of this nature.
The Offering remains subject to final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Common Shares and the Finder’s Warrants issued under the Offering are subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus one day.
This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities in the United States. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”) or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to U.S. Persons unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.
