Not for distribution to United States news services or dissemination in the United States
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ValOre Metals Corp. (“ValOre” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: VO, OTC: KVLQF, Frankfurt: KEQ) today announced its intention to complete a non-intermediary private placement financing (the “Offering”) up to 6,250,000 units (the “Units“) at a price of CA$0.40 per unit (the “Offer price”) for gross proceeds of up to CA$2,500,000. Each unit will consist of one common share (a “To share) in the capital of ValOre and one-half non-transferable common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant being a “To guarantee”). Each warrant may be exercised to acquire one share at a price of C$0.60 per share for a period of 24 months from the date of issue.
ValOre intends to use the net proceeds raised from the Offering for additional exploration work on the
The Angilak property uranium project in Nunavut Territory, Canada, and the Company’s Pedra Branca palladium and platinum project in Brazil, as well as for general working capital.
The Company may pay finder’s fees on a portion of the Offering, subject to compliance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange and applicable securities laws.
Certain insiders of ValOre will acquire Units in connection with the Offering. Any insider participation in the Offer constitutes a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of holders of minority securities during special operations (“MI 61-101”). However, the Company expects such insider participation to be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of NI 61-101, as the fair market value of the shares subscribed for by insiders, nor the consideration for the units paid by such insiders, would not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company.
The closing of the Offering is subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. All securities issued under the Offering will be subject to a four month hold period in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws. There are no material facts or material changes regarding the Company that have not been generally disclosed.
ValOre Metals Corp. (TSX‐V: VO) is a Canadian company with a portfolio of high quality exploration projects. The ValOre team aims to deploy capital and knowledge on projects that benefit from substantial up-front investment by previous owners, the existence of large-scale, high-value mineralization and the potential to add tangible value through exploration, process improvement and innovation.
On behalf of the Board of Directors,
James R. Paterson
President and CEO
