Unit Private Placement – Second Tranche
Crystal Lake issued 7,716,831 units at 22.5 cents per unit in this second tranche with each unit consisting of one common share in the capital of the Company and one share purchase warrant. Each warrant entitles the holder to purchase one share of the Company for a period of 24 months from the closing of the offering at an exercise price of 35 cents per share.
The warrants issued in the Unit Private Placement are subject to an acceleration provision that states in the event the closing price of the Company’s shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSXV), or such other exchange on which the Company’s shares may become traded, is $0.75 (CDN) or greater per share during any fifteen (15) consecutive trading day period at any time subsequent to four months and one day after the closing date, the warrants will expire at 4:00 p.m. (Vancouver time) on the 30th day after the date on which the Company provides notice of such accelerated expiry to the holders of the warrants.
FT Private Placement
As part of this second tranche, Crystal Lake has issued 1,250,000 flow-through common shares at 32 cents per share for gross proceeds of $400,000 (no warrants).
Use of Proceeds
The above private placements are subject to the approval of the TSXV. Finders’ fees for this second tranche may be payable to qualified parties, and the securities issued in this second tranche will be subject to a four-month hold period from the closing date.
Proceeds from the Unit Private Placement will be for general working capital purposes and to complete the first phase of Crystal Lake’s 2019 drilling and exploration program (at least $3 million) at the Newmont Lake Project in the Eskay region, starting during the upcoming quarter.
