VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Anfield Energy Inc. (TSX.V: AEC; OTCQB: ANLDF; FRANKFURT: 0AD) (“Anfield” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has closed the final tranche of its non-brokered private placement. The final tranche, consisting of 71,920,520 units (each, a “Unit”) at a price of $0.085 per Unit, raised gross proceeds of $6,116,644. Each Unit consists of one common share and one share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant”), with each Warrant entitling the holder to purchase an additional common share at a price of $0.13 until March 7, 2024. Red Cloud Securities Inc. acted as a finder with respect to the private placement.
In connection with completion of the final tranche of the private placement, the Company has paid $361,899 and issued 4,245,631 Warrants to certain arms’-length parties who have assisted the Company by introducing subscribers to the placement. All securities issued in connection with completion of the final tranche of the private placement are subject to a statutory hold period ending July 8, 2022.
The proceeds from the private placement will be used for property-related costs and development, and general working capital.
The final tranche of the private placement included participation by one member of management of the Company in the aggregate amount of 300,000 Units. This participation constitutes a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The issuance of Units is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as it was a distribution of securities for cash, and the fair market value of the Units issued to and the aggregate consideration paid did not exceed twenty-five percent of the Company’s market capitalization.
Anfield is a uranium and vanadium development and near-term production company that is committed to becoming a top-tier energy-related fuels supplier by creating value through sustainable, efficient growth in its assets. Anfield is also a precious metals development company. Anfield is a publicly-traded corporation listed on the TSX-Venture Exchange (AEC-V), the OTCQB Marketplace (ANLDF) and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (0AD). Anfield is focused on two asset centres, as summarized below:
Arizona/Utah/Colorado – Shootaring Canyon Mill
A key asset in Anfield’s portfolio is the Shootaring Canyon Mill in Garfield County, Utah. The Shootaring Canyon Mill is strategically located within one of the historically most prolific uranium production areas in the United States, and is one of only three licensed uranium mills in the United States.
Anfield’s conventional uranium assets consist of mining claims and state leases in southeastern Utah, Colorado and Arizona, targeting areas where past uranium mining or prospecting occurred. Anfield’s conventional uranium assets include the Velvet-Wood Project, the Frank M Uranium Project, the West Slope Project as well as the Findlay Tank breccia pipe. An NI 43-101 Preliminary Economic Assessment has been completed for the Velvet-Wood Project. The PEA is preliminary in nature, and includes inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves, and there is no certainty that the preliminary economic assessment would be realized. All conventional uranium assets are situated within a 200-mile radius of the Shootaring Mill.
Wyoming – Resin Capture and Processing Agreement
Anfield has signed a Resin Capture and Processing Agreement with Uranium One whereby Anfield would process up to 500,000 pounds per annum of its mined material at Uranium One’s Irigaray processing plant in Wyoming.
The Charlie Project, Anfield’s flagship uranium project, is located in the Pumpkin Buttes Uranium District in Johnson County, Wyoming. The Charlie Project consists of a 720-acre Wyoming State uranium lease which has been in development since 1969. A Preliminary Economic Assessment has been completed for the Charlie Project.
Anfield’s 24 remaining ISR mining projects are located in the Black Hills, Powder River Basin, Great Divide Basin, Laramie Basin, Shirley Basin and Wind River Basin areas in Wyoming. Anfield’s three projects in Wyoming for which NI 43-101 resource reports have been completed are Red Rim, Nine Mile Lake and Clarkson Hill.
