Partial Exercise of Over-Allotment Option
In connection with the previously announced Offering, the Underwriters have effected an additional partial exercise of the over-allotment option to acquire 250,000 common share purchase warrants (the "Warrants") at a price of C$0.10 per Warrant, representing aggregate gross proceeds of C$25,000.
Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of C$1.20 with a Warrant expiry date of July 26, 2023.
The net proceeds of the Offering, including the net proceeds from the Warrants, will be used to support pre-construction and optimization costs at Curipamba, infill and expansion drilling at El Domo's underground deposit, an initial drill program at the Santiago Project, and for general corporate purposes and working capital.
