American CuMo Mining Corporation (“CuMoCo or the “Company”) (TSXV: MLY; OTCQX: MLYCF) announces that Millennia Minerals Pte Ltd. (“Millennia”) has informed the Company that it still intends to proceed with the proposed financing, subject to the final approval of Millennia’s Board of Directors, of up to US$200 million (the “Millennia Financing”) with the Company, as announced in the Company’s previous news releases, and that Millennia has advised that it is in the final stages of obtaining the necessary funds to close the Millennia Financing. Concurrently, the Company has notified Millennia that it is seeking additional financing arrangements to meet its operational requirements until such time that the strategic financial agreements with Millennia are executed, and adequate funds are received from Millennia.
The Company continues to offer its non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) of up to 15,000,000 units (the “Units”) at a price of CAD$0.25 per Unit to raise gross proceeds of up to CAD$3,750,000, as announced in its news release dated August 15, 2017. CuMoCo has received some subscription agreements and, as well, expressions of interest from investors that collectively represent a significant amount of the Private Placement. The Company may adjust the pricing based on current market conditions, subject to the consent of the TSX Venture Exchange (“Exchange”).
Additionally, at the request of several potential investors and interested groups, the Company has amended the pricing structure of its silver stream units, subject to Exchange approval, to allow smaller amounts of silver to be purchased. As announced in previous news releases, CuMoCo’s silver stream units (the “Original Silver Stream Units”) were priced at US$250,000 per Original Silver Stream Unit, with each Original Silver Stream Unit consisting of a secured and non-transferable promissory note in the principal amount of US$250,000 (a “Note”) and a right (the “Silver Purchase Right”) to enter into a silver purchase and sale agreement (a “Silver Purchase Agreement”) with the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Idaho CuMo Mining Corporation (“Idaho Cumo”). The Notes will bear interest at a rate of 8.5% per annum and give the Original Silver Stream Unit holder a Silver Purchase Right to purchase 375,000 ounces of silver for US$5 per ounce from future production. The Company will continue to offer Original Silver Stream Units for sale. A total of 77 Original Silver Stream Units, with corresponding Silver Purchase Rights for 28,875,000 ounces of silver, remain for sale.
The Company will additionally offer for sale silver stream units with a reduced minimum purchase price of US$5,000 per Silver Stream Unit (a “New Silver Stream Unit”). The holder of a New Silver Stream Unit will be granted a Silver Purchase Right pursuant to a Silver Purchase Agreement with Idaho Cumo to purchase that number of ounces of silver equal to the amount of the investment divided by US$1. For example, an investment of US$5,000 will give the holder of the New Silver Stream Unit the right to purchase 5,000 ounces of silver at US$5 per ounce, and an investment of US$10,000 will give the holder of the New Silver Stream Unit the right to purchase 10,000 ounces of silver at US$5 per ounce. Silver ounces from future production will be sold on a first come first served basis.
