November 15, 2019 (Toronto, Ontario): Murchison Minerals Ltd. (“Murchison” or the “Company”) (TSXV: MUR) announces that it proposes to complete a non-brokered private placement of up to $1,450,000 (the “Private Placement”) as detailed below. The proceeds will mainly be used to drill up to 12 high priority VMS targets identified in a VTEM airborne survey followed by field prospecting.
The Company proposes to issue up to 4,166,667 common share units (the “Units”) at a price of $0.06 per Unit and up to 13,793,103 flow-through units (the “FT Units”) at a price of $0.087 per FT Unit.
Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one full Common Share purchase warrant. Each warrant (a “Warrant”) will entitle the holder to acquire one additional Common Share (a “Warrant Share”) for a period of twelve (12) months from the date of closing (the “Closing Date”) at an exercise price of $0.10 per Warrant Share. Each FT Unit will consist of one flow-through common share of the Company (a “FT Share”) and one full non flow-through Common Share purchase warrant having the terms as the Warrant Share. A portion of the FT Shares may be sold on a charitable flow-through basis. The FT Shares will qualify as a “flow through share” for purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada).
A finder’s fee may apply to a portion of the proceeds raised under the Private Placement in the amount of 2% cash. All securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to a four month hold period from the date of issue. Proceeds from the Private Placement will be used by the Company for exploration drilling and field prospecting on its Brabant Lake VMS project in Saskatchewan and for working capital and for other general and administrative costs.
Certain directors and officers of the Company may acquire securities under the Private Placement. Any such participation would be considered to be a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101”). The transaction will be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 based on a determination that the securities of the Company are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) and that the fair market value of the Private Placement, insofar as it involves interested parties, does not exceed $2,500,000 or 25% of the market capitalization of the Company. The Private Placement was approved by all independent directors of the Company.
