VANCOUVER, BC – April 29, 2021 – Goldsource Mines Inc. (“Goldsource” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Cormark Securities Inc. and Sprott Capital Partners (collectively, the “Underwriters”), pursuant to which the Underwriters shall purchase 72,730,000 units of the Company (the “Units”) at a price of $0.11 per Unit (the “Offering Price”), on a “bought deal” private placement basis, for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of approximately C$8.0 million (the “Offering”). The Company has also granted the Underwriters an option to sell up to an additional 10,909,500 Units at the Offering Price up to the closing of the Offering (the “Option”), which would increase the aggregate gross proceeds to approximately C$9.2 million if exercised in full.
Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each full warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one Common Share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.14 for a period of 24 months following the closing of the Offering.
The net proceeds from the Offering will be used for ongoing exploration and pre-feasibility work at the Eagle Mountain Gold Project in Guyana, working capital and general corporate purposes.
Van Eck Associates Corp. has committed to participate in the Offering with a lead order of C$5.0 million.
In connection with the Offering, the Company will pay to the Underwriters a cash commission equal to 6.0% of the gross proceeds from the sale of the Units (including any proceeds in connection with the exercise of the Option), other than in respect of any purchasers pursuant to a mutually agreed “president’s list” (not to exceed C$1.0 million) (the “President’s List”), on which a cash fee of 3.0% only shall be payable. In addition, the Company shall issue to the Underwriters such number of compensation warrants (the “Broker Warrants”) as is equal to 3.0% of the number of Units sold pursuant to the Offering, except for any purchasers on the President’s List on which such number of Broker Warrants as is equal to 1.5% of the number of Units sold pursuant to the Offering shall be issued. Each Broker Warrant will be exercisable for one Common Share at an exercise price equal to the Offering Price for a period of 24 months following the closing of the Offering.
The Offering is scheduled to close on or about May 20, 2021 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory and other approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”).
Following discussions with investors and in consideration of Company initiatives, Goldsource is also announcing that it intends to complete a concurrent share consolidation on the basis of 10 existing Common Shares for one new consolidated common share (the “Consolidation”), which the Company anticipates completing on the closing of the Offering. The Consolidation is subject to the approval of the TSXV. In accordance with the Company's articles, the Consolidation may be approved by the Company's directors, and shareholder approval is not required. Currently, the Company has 407,247,109 issued and outstanding Common Shares, and assuming no additional Common Shares are issued prior to completion of the Consolidation (including under the Offering) upon completion of the Consolidation there will be 40,724,711 Common Shares on a post Consolidation basis outstanding. The Offering is being conducted on a pre-Consolidation basis.
