VANCOUVER – CMC Metals Ltd. [CMB-TSXV, CMCXF-OTCQB, ZM5P-Frankfurt] said Thursday it has raised $1.4 million from an over-subscribed private placement financing. Subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval, the company will issue 4.97 million flow-through units at 18 cent per share and 3.2 million non-flow- through units at 16 cents each.
Net proceeds from the sale of the flow-through shares will be used to fund current exploration efforts at both the Bridal Veil and Rodney Pond properties in Central Newfoundland and ongoing exploration efforts on its silver-lead-zinc properties in Yukon/British Columbia in the Rancheria Silver District.
Each flow through unit consists of one flow-through common share and one half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant can be used to purchase an additional common share for 20 cents for 24 months from the date of issue.
Each non flow-through unit consists of one common share of the company and one half of a common share purchase warrant. Each full warrant can be used to purchase an additional common share for 20 cents for 24 months from the date of issue.
The financing was effected with three insiders subscribing for a total of $54,000 or 300,000 flow-through units, making that portion of the financing a related party transaction.
“We are particularly pleased that in this challenging market that we managed to oversubscribe the placement but keeping it at a level appropriate to enable us to implement our current objectives and goals,’’ said CMC President and CEO Kevin Brewer.
