Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 24, 2023) - Silver Hammer Mining Corp. (CSE: HAMR) (the "Company" or "Silver Hammer") is pleased to announce that it has closed an initial tranche of its previously announced best-efforts private placement pursuant to the listed issuer financing exemption available under Part 5A of National Instrument 45-106 - Prospectus Exemptions (the "Offering") for gross proceeds of $1,824,125.00.
The Offering was led by Echelon Wealth Partners Inc. as lead agent and sole bookrunner, along with M Partners Inc. (the "Agents"), and consisted of the sale of 7,296,500 units (each a "Unit", and collectively the "Units") at a price of $0.25 per Unit (the "Issue Price"). Each Unit consisted of one common share in the capital of the Company (each, a "Common Share", and collectively the "Common Shares") and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant, (each whole warrant, a "Warrant" and collectively, the "Warrants"). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at a price of $0.33 per Common Share for a period of 24 months from the closing date.
As consideration for the Agents' services in connection with the Offering, the Agents received a cash commission of $118,050.00 and 472,200 broker warrants, each exercisable to acquire one Common Share at the Issue Price for a period of 24 months from the closing date. In addition, Echelon Wealth Partners Inc., as lead agent, received a corporate finance fee of 120,000 Units (subject to a 4-month hold).
The Company will use the net proceeds of the Offering for exploration at the Silver Strand project in Idaho, Eliza and Silverton projects in Nevada, working capital and general corporate purposes.
"The 2023 exploration season at Silver Hammer will be exciting, as we plan to potentially drill three high- grade silver projects, each of which were previous producers in Idaho and Nevada," stated Peter A. Ball, President & CEO. "I am pleased to see the continued support in the market to quickly close over CDN$1.8 million in 3 weeks, of which I subscribed for CDN$300,000 alongside our existing and new shareholders. We will be onsite at our Silver Strand, Eliza and Silverton Projects in June 2023 and we look forward to advancing each project and to begin generating results."
Directors and officers of the Company purchased an aggregate of 1,300,000 Units in the Offering for gross proceeds of $325,000.00. The participation by such insiders in the Offering constituted a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The related party transaction was exempt from minority approval, information circular and formal valuation requirements pursuant to the exemptions contained in Sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1) of MI 61-101, as neither the fair market value of the gross securities issued under the Offering nor the consideration paid by the insiders exceeded 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
