TORONTO, Dec. 6, 2023 /CNW/ - Aurum Lake Mining Corporation ("Aurum" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that further to its news releases of November 8, 2023 and December 4, 2023, it has completed a non-brokered private placement (the "Concurrent Financing") of 5,000,000 common shares (the "Common Shares") in the capital of Aurum at a price of $0.40 per Common Share and 240,000 common shares in the capital of Aurum, which will be designated as a flow-through shares ("FT Shares") pursuant to the Income Tax Act (Canada), at a price of $0.50 per FT Share for aggregate proceeds of $2,120,000.
The Concurrent Financing was undertaken in connection with the previously announced Qualifying Transaction (as such term is defined in TSX Venture Exchange Policy 2.4 - Capital Pool Companies) to acquire a 100% interest of certain mineral claims known as the Homathko Gold Project (the "Transaction"), located in the Province of British Columbia (the "Homathko Property") pursuant to an option agreement with Transition Metals Corp. Aurum intends to use the proceeds from the Concurrent Financing to fund the exercise of the Option, the exploration of the Homathko Property, and to satisfy the general working capital of the Company following the Transaction.
In connection with the Concurrent Financing, Aurum paid aggregate fees of paid aggregate fees to certain arm's length finders in the amount of $99,000 and issued common share purchase warrants ("Finder's Warrants") to purchase 247,500 Common Shares at a price of $0.40 per Common Share for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance of the respective Finder's Warrant.
Completion of the Transaction is subject to a number of conditions including, without limitation, the receipt of all requisite regulatory approvals (including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange")) and other conditions that are customary for a transaction of this nature. Where applicable, the Transaction cannot close until the required approvals have been obtained. There can be no assurance that the Transaction will be completed as proposed or at all.
Investors are cautioned that, except as disclosed in the continuous disclosure document containing full, true and plain disclosure regarding the Transaction, required to be filed with the securities regulatory authorities having jurisdiction over the affairs of the Company, any information released or received with respect to the Transaction may not be accurate or complete and should not be relied upon. The trading in the securities of the Company on the Exchange, if reinstated prior to completion of the Transaction, should be considered highly speculative.
