Minera Alamos Announces Closing of $4.37 Million Non-Brokered Private Placement
Toronto, Ontario and Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – July 18, 2022) – Minera Alamos Inc. (TSXV: MAI) (the “Company” or “Minera Alamos”) is pleased to announce that, further to its press release dated June 23, 2022, it has closed its non-brokered private placement offering of 7,950,000 common shares of the Company (the “Common Shares“) at a price of $0.55 per Common Share for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of $4,372,500 (the “Offering“). No finders fees were paid.
Minera Alamos intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to advance the Cerro de Oro gold project in a timely manner through permitting and to logistically plan for long-lead time orders of equipment and supplies that will be used in its construction as well as for general corporate purposes.
All securities issued under the Offering are subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the closing date under applicable Canadian securities laws, in addition to such other restrictions as may apply under applicable securities laws of jurisdictions outside Canada. The Offering is subject to final acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV“).
Doug Ramshaw, President and Director of Minera Alamos, subscribed for 950,000 Common Shares for gross proceeds of $522,500. As a result, the Offering is considered a “related party transaction” pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“). Minera Alamos relied on Sections 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 for exemptions from the requirements to obtain a formal valuation and minority shareholder approval, respectively, because the Common Shares trade on the TSXV and the fair market value of insider’s participation in the Offering was below 25% of the Company’s market capitalization for purposes of MI 61-101.
The securities offered have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities in the United States, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
