Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 31, 2022) - K9 Gold Corp. (TSXV: KNC) (FSE: 5GP) (OTC: WDFCF) ("K9" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has closed its non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") first announced on April 6, 2022 and amended on May 20, 2022.
The Private Placement consisted of 4,285,714 non flow through units (the "NFT Units") at a price of $0.14 per NFT Unit for proceeds of $600,000 and 8,718,750 flow through units (the "FT Units") at a price of $0.16 per FT Unit for proceeds of $1,395,000. Each NFT Unit and FT Unit is comprised of one common share and one share purchase warrant exercisable for a period of two years at a price of $0.20 per common share until May 25, 2024.
Total proceeds of the Private Placement were $1,995,000.
Proceeds from the private placement will be used for drilling and exploration on the Stony Lake gold project, particularly in the Jumper's Pond area, where drilling in late 2021 intersected multiple very wide zones of significant gold mineralization.
The NFT Units and the FT Units are subject to a four month hold period expiring on September 27, 2022.
In connection with the Private Placement, the Company paid a finder's fee of 630,000 Warrants exercisable at a price of $0.20 and $104,000 in Cash. No finder's fees or commissions are payable on that portion of the Private Placement being issued to the three persons considered to be insiders under MI 61-101.
As a total of 592,322 Units are being issued to three persons who are considered "insiders" by virtue of their being directors or officers of the Company, the issuance of the Units to them is considered a "related party transaction" pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Company is relying on the formal valuation exemption in section 5.5(a) of MI 61-101 and upon the minority approval exemption in section 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 on the basis that, at the time the subscription agreements with these persons were agreed to, neither the fair market value of the subject matter of, nor the fair market value of the consideration for, their Units purchased under the Private Placement will exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization as determined in accordance with MI 61-101.
