West Vancouver, British Columbia – October 7, 2021 – Magnum Goldcorp Inc. (the “Company” or “Magnum”) announces that further to its news releases of August 18, 2021, September 2, 2021 and September 28, 2021, the Company has now closed both its flow-through private placement and its non-flow through private placement. The Company has raised a total of $978,000 through the issuance of 12,260,000 non-flow through units (the “NFT Units”) at $0.05 per NFT Unit and 6,083,333 flow through shares (the “FT Shares”) at $0.06 per FT Share. Each NFT Unit consisted of one common share and one share purchase warrant, with each warrant entitling the holder to purchase an additional common share for a period of 5 years at an exercise price of $0.10. The warrants are subject to an acceleration right that allows the Company to give notice of an earlier expiry date if the Company’s share price on the TSX Venture Exchange is equal to or greater than $0.25 for a period of 20 consecutive trading days.
With respect to these private placements, the Company paid finders’ fees to Canaccord Capital Corp. and Echelon Capital Markets in the total amount of $46,010.
The Company intends to use the proceeds from these private placements for further exploration on its “LH Property” and for general working capital purposes.
Certain insiders of the Company purchased an aggregate of 1,465,000 FT Shares and 3,550,000 NFT Units under the private placements, constituting, to that extent, a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”). The Company has relied on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 (and Policy 5.9) contained in sections 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(b) of MI 61-101 in respect of such insider participation. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the private placements, as the details and amounts of the insider participation were not finalized until closer to the closing and the Company wished to close the transaction as soon as practicable for sound business reasons.
