Val-d’Or, Québec – September 23, 2016 – Uranium Valley Mines Ltd. (NEX:VZZ.H) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement offering (the “Financing”) for gross proceeds of $390,000, having issued:
291,666 flow-through units (the “FT Units”) at a per FT Unit price of $0.12 for gross proceeds of $35,000, each FT Unit consisting of one common share in the capital of the Company issued on a flow-through basis under the Canada Income Tax Act and one-half of one non-transferable non- flow-through common share purchase warrant, each whole warrant entitling the holder to purchase one non-flow-through common share in the capital of the Company at a per share price of $0.15 until September 23, 2017; and
4,733,333 units (the “Units”) at a per Unit price of $0.075 for gross proceeds of $355,000, each Unit consisting of one non-flow-through common share in the capital of the Company and one non-transferable common share purchase warrant entitling the holder to purchase one common share in the capital of the Company at a per share price of $0.10 until September 23, 2017.
The Financing was oversubscribed by 733,333 Units (for additional gross proceeds of $55,000) to that previously announced by the Company on August 24, 2016, with the flow-through portion of the Financing being undersubscribed.
In connection with the Financing, the Company paid finder’s fees to various parties having issued an aggregate 258,666 common shares at a deemed per share price of $0.075 in satisfaction of an aggregate $19,400 representing 8% of the purchase proceeds received from subscribers introduced to the Company by the finders, plus the Company issued to the finders non-transferable warrants entitling the purchase of an aggregate 258,666 common shares at a per share price of $0.10 until September 23, 2017, representing 8% of the number of Units placed with the assistance of the finders.
In accordance with applicable securities legislation and the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange, all securities issued under the Financing, including securities issued in satisfaction of finder’s fees, are subject to a hold period until January 24, 2017.
Gross proceeds from the sale of FT Units will be used by the Company for exploration of the Porcupine Miracle Prospect – four contiguous and unpatented mining claims comprising an aggregate of 64 hectares located in the Southwestern corner of Langmuir Township, which is approximately 20 miles southeast of Timmins, Ontario. Net proceeds from the sale of non-flow-through Units will be used by the Company for general corporate purposes.
Two directors of the Company participated in the Financing, which resulted in related party considerations pursuant to TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company relied on the exemptions contained in section 5.5(a) of MI 61-101 for an exemption from the formal valuation requirement and section 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 for an exemption from the minority approval requirement as the fair market value of the transaction insofar as it involved interested parties did not exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization. As a result of his participation in the Financing, the shareholding percentage in the Company of Glenn J. Mullan, a director and the Chief Executive Officer of the Company, increased from approximately 2.5% to approximately 6.7%.
