Vancouver, B.C., December 29, 2021: American CuMo Mining Corporation (“CuMoCo” or the “Company”) (TSXV: MLY; OTC Pink: MLYCF) announces that it is closing its oversubscribed private placement previously announced on December 7, 2022. Subscriptions were received for a total of 15,000,000 Units for proceeds of $750,000. The transaction closing requires TSX Venture Exchange approval.
Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of the Company (a “Share”) and one transferable common share purchase warrant, with each warrant (a “Warrant”) exercisable to purchase one common share of the Company (a “Warrant Share”) for a period of 60 months from the date of closing of the Private Placement (the “Expiry Date”), at a price of $0.075 per Warrant Share. If at any time prior to the Expiry Date, the Company’s common shares trade at or above a price of $0.125 per share on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) for a period of 10 consecutive trading days, the Company may, at its option, accelerate the Expiry Date by delivery of notice (the “Acceleration Notice“) to the Holder and issuing a press release announcing such acceleration (the “Acceleration Press Release”), and, in such case, the Expiry Date shall be deemed to be the 20th day following the later of: (i) the date on which the Acceleration Notice is sent to the Holder, and (ii) the date of issuance of the Acceleration Press Release.
The following being insiders of the Company (as such term is defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”)), have subscribed for a total of 350,000 units, as follows: Wayne Kettleson , director for 100,000 Units; John Moeller (Chairman, and a director of the Company) for 250,000 Units. The Company has relied upon the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in Sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 based on the fact that the fair market value of the related party participation in the CuMoCo Offering will not exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization prior to the closing of the CuMoCo Offering. The Board of Directors approved the participation of insiders in the CuMoCo Offering with the individual insiders who are directors abstaining from voting on their participation.
The proceeds of the private placement will be used to make the final payment of Euros 235,000 under terms of the Bleiberg deal announced March 15, 2021 and for general corporate purposes.
