June 19, 2019 (Toronto, Ontario): Murchison Minerals Ltd. (“Murchison” or the “Company”) (TSXV: MUR) is pleased to announce that further to its press release dated June 3, 2019, the Company has completed its non-brokered private placement of 3,260,000 flow-through common shares (the “FT Shares”) at a price of $0.11 per FT Share for gross proceeds of $358,600 (the “Offering”).
Proceeds from the Offering will be used for exploration of the Company’s Brabant-McKenzie project in Saskatchewan.
A portion of the FT Shares ($330,000) was sold on a charitable flow-through basis. The FT Shares qualify as a “flow through share” for purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada). The FT Shares issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a statutory four month hold period and completion of the Offering is subject to final acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”).
The Offering constituted a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101”) as certain insiders of the Company subscribed for an aggregate of 260,000 FT Shares totaling $28,600. The Company is relying on the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as the securities of the Company are listed on the TSXV and the fair market value of the participation in the Offering by insiders does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101. A material change report was not filed more than 21 days prior to closing of the Offering as contemplated by the related party transaction requirements under MI 61-101 as the insider participation was only recently confirmed.
