TORONTO, Nov. 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Revival Gold Inc. (TSXV: RVG, OTCQX: RVLGF) (“Revival Gold” or the “Company”), announces its intention to complete a non-brokered private placement of up to 11,000,000 units of the Company (the “Units”) at a price of C$0.35 per Unit (the “Issue Price”) for gross proceeds of up to C$3,850,000 (the “Financing”). Each Unit will be comprised of one (1) common share of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one half of one (0.5) Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one (1) Common Share (a “Warrant Share”) at an exercise price of C$0.45 per Warrant Share at any time for a period of thirty-six (36) months following the closing of the Financing.
“Revival Gold has made outstanding progress over the past year de-risking and advancing the company’s Beartrack-Arnett gold project. The project stands as one of the largest new discoveries of gold in the United States in the past decade. We have a robust Pre-Feasibility Study on our first phase heap leach re-start plans for the project and we are continuing to explore with several exciting high-value targets to pursue. Today’s private placement financing will augment our cash position as we approach year end and make preparations for the season ahead”, said Hugh Agro, President & CEO.
The Company reserves the right to increase the size of the Financing by up to 25% of the size of the Financing (the “Upsize Option”) pursuant to which the Company may offer for sale up to an additional 2,750,000 Units at the Issue Price. The Upsize Option may be exercised in whole or in part in the Company’s sole discretion at any time up to the closing of the Financing. If the Financing is fully subscribed and the Upsize Option is exercised in full, the total gross proceeds of the Financing is expected to be approximately C$4,812,500. Closing of the Financing is expected on or about November 30th, 2023, or such other date or dates that that the Company may determine.
The Company may pay finders fees to eligible finders in connection with the Financing in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”). The net proceeds of the Financing will be used to fund on-going exploration and development at the Company’s core Beartrack-Arnett Gold Project (“Beartrack-Arnett”) located in Lemhi County, Idaho and for general corporate purposes. The Financing is subject to the receipt of all required regulatory approvals including the approval of the Exchange. All securities to be issued and issuable pursuant to the Financing will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws.
It is expected that certain directors and officers of the Company (the “Insiders”) may participate in the Offering. The participation of Insiders in the Offering will constitute a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company anticipates relying on exemptions from the minority shareholder approval and formal valuation requirements applicable to the related-party transactions under sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a), respectively, of MI 61-101, as neither the fair market value of the Flow-Through Shares to be acquired by the participating Insiders nor the consideration to be paid by such directors and officers is anticipated to exceed 25 percent of the Company's market capitalization.
The securities offered have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
