Goldsource Mines Announces Private Placement of up to Cdn$2.55 Million
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
VANCOUVER, BC - January 16, 2017 - Goldsource Mines Inc. (“Goldsource” or the “Company”) announces that it has arranged a non–brokered private placement for up to Cdn$2,550,000 comprised of up to 15,000,000 units at a price of Cdn$0.17 per unit (the “Offering”). Each unit will consist of one common share and one common share purchase warrant of Goldsource, with each warrant being exercisable for one common share of Goldsource at a price of Cdn$0.23 for a term of 2 years.
Proceeds from the Offering will be used for the Company’s Eagle Mountain Gold Project capital and operating improvements, resource expansion, partial repayment of outstanding loan and general corporate purposes. Please see news release dated January 9, 2017 for more detailed information on the Company’s planned operations for 2017.
The Offering is subject to regulatory approval. Resale of the securities distributed in connection with the Offering will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day following the closing date of the Offering.
It is anticipated that certain directors, officers and other insiders of the Company will acquire shares and warrants of the Company under the Offering. Such participation will be considered to be “related party transactions” within the meaning of TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61–101–Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61–101”) adopted in the Policy. The Company intends to rely on the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61–101 contained in sections 5.5(a) or (b) and 5.7(1)(a) or (b) of MI 61–101 in respect of related party participation in the Offering. The securities of the Company are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (and on none of certain specified markets for the purposes of the MI 61–101 provisions) and neither the aggregate fair market value of the shares and warrants to be distributed to, nor the consideration paid by, related parties will exceed Cdn$2.5 million. Furthermore, neither the fair market value of the subject matter of, nor the fair market value of the consideration for, the transaction, insofar as it involves interested parties, is expected to exceed 25% of the Company’s current market capitalization and the Company expects to receive the requisite non–interested directors’ approval of the Offering.
