Alianza Minerals Announces C$2.9 Million Non-Brokered Private Placement and Engages Red Cloud Financial Services
Alianza Minerals Ltd. (TSX-V: ANZ, OTC: TARSF) (“Alianza” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement of 10 million units of the Company (the “Units”) at a price of C$0.135 per Unit and 10 million flow-through shares of the Company (the “Flow-Through Shares”) at a price of C$0.155 per Flow-Through Share for gross proceeds to the Company of up to C$2.9 million (the “Offering”). Each Unit shall consist of one common share of the Company (each, a “Common Share”) and one half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will be exercisable by the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share (a “Warrant Share”) at a price of C$0.20 for a period of 24 months following the closing date of the Offering. Red Cloud Securities Inc. is acting as a finder in connection with the Offering.
The gross proceeds from the issuance of the Flow-Through Shares will be used for “Canadian Exploration Expenses” (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada)) (the “Qualifying Expenditures”), which will be renounced with an effective date no later than December 31, 2020 to the purchasers of the Flow-Through Shares in an aggregate amount not less than the gross proceeds raised from the issue of the Flow-Through Shares. If the Qualifying Expenditures are reduced by the Canada Revenue Agency, the Company will indemnify each Flow-Through Shares subscriber for any additional taxes payable by such subscriber as a result of the Company’s failure to renounce the Qualifying Expenditures.
The net proceeds from the sale of Units shall be used for exploration of the Company’s projects and for general working capital purposes.
Jason Weber, President and CEO of Alianza, noted that “We are planning a drill program at the Haldane Silver project in the Keno Hill District of the Yukon. This financing will fund that program while our other projects will advance with partner funding.”
The closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about October 7, 2020 and is subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals including the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”). Finder’s fees of 7% in cash and 7% in finder’s warrants will be paid to eligible parties. The Units and Flow-Through Shares, including all underlying securities thereof, and any finders warrants issued with respect to the Offering, will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day in accordance with applicable securities laws.
