Omineca Announces Financing
Cranbrook, BC; 28 January, 2015: Omineca Mining and Metals Ltd. (TSX-V:OMM) announces that the Company intends to complete a non-brokered private placement to arms-length and non arms-length investors. Application will be filed with the TSX Venture Exchange (TSX-V) to sell up to 2,500,000 flow-through units at a price of $.10 CDN per unit for gross proceeds of $250,000.
Each unit will consist of a flow-through common share, one non-flow-through common share, and one-half non-flow-through share purchase warrant, each whole warrant exercisable at $.10 CDN for a 24 month period.
The common share purchase warrants are subject to an accelerated expiry at the option of the Company if the published closing trade price of the common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange is greater than or equal to $.20 for any 10 consecutive trading days, in which event the holder will be given notice that the warrants will expire 30 days following the date of such notice. The common share purchase warrants may be exercised by the holder during the 30 day period between the notice and the expiration of the common share purchase warrants.
Proceeds from the sale of the units will be used to finance exploration of the Company’s projects in British Columbia and will qualify as Canadian exploration expenses as defined in the Income Tax Act and will be renounced for the 2015 taxation year.
A 7% commission or finders fee may be paid to registered dealers or arms-length third parties involved in the financing. The financing is expected to close in February, 2015.
