Drilling Planned at 5 – 6 km-long Target at Beaver Nickel Property
Vancouver, British Columbia, August 25, 2021 – Inomin Mines Inc. (TSX.V: MINE) (“Inomin” or the “Company”) announces the first tranche (the “First Tranche”) close of its non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) announced July 26, 2021. Under the First Tranche, the Company issued 2,862,000 flow-through units (“FT Units”) for gross proceeds of $357,750.00 and 446,000 non-flow-through units (“NFT Units”) for gross proceeds of $44,600.00, for total gross proceeds of $402,350.00.
Each NFT Unit will be comprised of one non-flow-through common share and one-half (0.5) of one warrant. Each FT Unit will be comprised of one flow-through common share and one-half (0.5) of one warrant. The warrants for all units will be subject to the same terms, with each whole warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one non-flow-through common share for a period of 2 years from the date of issuance at an exercise price of $0.15.
Proceeds from the flow-through will be used for, among other things, exploration at Inomin’s Beaver Nickel property located in the Cariboo region of British Columbia. Approximately 1,200 metres of diamond drilling is planned to test for nickel mineralization within a 5 – 6 kilometre-long area. This large exploration target has been defined by the Company’s recently completed magnetic survey at the North Lobe and Spur zones (see July 22, 2021 news release) and limited previous drilling. The new drilling program is scheduled to start by the end of the month.
In connection with the First Tranche, the Company paid a total of $18,112.50 and issued a total of 144,900 warrants as finder’s fees. Each finder’s whole warrant is exercisable for one common share at a price of $0.15 for two years.
All securities issued under the First Tranche are subject to a hold period expiring December 26, 2021, in accordance with applicable securities laws and the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. The second and final tranche of the Offering is scheduled to close by September 9, 2021. The Offering is subject to acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.
Under the First Tranche, the following insiders of the Company purchased FT Units: George Pietrobon, a director of the Company, purchased 400,000 FT Units under the Frist Tranche; and L. John Peters, a director of the Company, purchased 40,000 FT Units under the First Tranche. Their participation is considered to be a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101“). The transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the securities to be distributed in the Private Placement nor the consideration to be received for those securities, in so far as the First Tranche involves the insiders, exceeds $2,500,000. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the First Tranche as the details of the First Tranche and the participation therein by related parties of the Company were not settled until shortly prior to closing and the Company wished to close on an expedited basis for sound business reasons.
