TORONTO, Sept. 20, 2021 — Trigon Metals Inc. (TSX-V: TM) (“Trigon” or the “Company”) has closed, on an oversubscribed basis due to investor demand, a non-brokered second and final tranche (the “Second Tranche”) of its previously announced private placement of units (the “Offering”). The Company issued 7,562,500 units (the “Units”) pursuant to the Second Tranche at a price of $0.40 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $3,025,000. Combined with the first tranche of the Offering, which closed earlier this month, the Company has issued a total of 17,165,000 Units in the Offering for aggregate gross proceeds of $6,866,000.
Each Unit is comprised of one common share of Trigon (a “Share”) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Share at a price of $0.50 for a period of 24 months following the date hereof, subject to an acceleration provision whereby in the event that at any time after the expiry of the statutory hold period, the Shares trade at $0.75 or higher on the TSX Venture Exchange for a period of 30 consecutive days, the Company shall have the right to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is 30 days after the Company issues a news release announcing that it has elected to exercise the acceleration right.
In connection with the Second Tranche, the Company paid cash finder’s fees of $117,740 and issued 294,350 finder’s warrants (the “Finder Warrants”) to eligible finders. Each Finder Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Share at a price of $0.40 for a period of 24 months following the date hereof. The Second Tranche remains subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
All securities issued in connection with the Second Tranche will be subject to a statutory hold period of four-months and one-day.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering for the recommencement of mining at the Kombat mine and for working capital and general corporate purposes.
