Vancouver, British Columbia, Aug. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NevGold Corp. (“NevGold” or the “Company”) (TSXV:NAU) (OTCQX:NAUFF) (Frankfurt:5E50) is pleased to announce the closing of the previously announced (July 26, 2022) non-brokered private placement financing of flow-through units (the “FT Units”), issuing 1,723,076 FT Units at a price of C$0.65 per FT Unit for gross proceeds of C$1.1M.
NevGold CEO, Brandon Bonifacio, comments: “We are happy to announce the quick closing of our non-brokered private placement financing. The financing will allow us to get active in the field at our high-grade Ptarmigan project in BC while maintaining the hard dollars that we have raised to date for our Western USA projects including Limousine Butte, Nutmeg Mountain, and Cedar Wash. Our technical team has completed data interpretation at Ptarmigan over the past year, and we see significant opportunities to conduct a field program over the next 6-12 months to recognize the value of the project to the benefit of our shareholders. We are thankful for the support from our new and existing shareholders, and we expect to have more news out of our drill program at Limousine Butte shortly.”
Each Unit consists of one flow-through common share and one half of one transferable non-flow-through common share purchase warrant (each whole such common share purchase warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will be exercisable to acquire one additional non-flow-through common share of the Company for 24 months from the Closing Date at an exercise price of C$0.85. The aggregate gross proceeds raised from the Units will be used before 2024 for general exploration expenditures which will constitute Canadian exploration expenses (within the meaning of subsection 66(15) of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the “Tax Act”)), that will qualify as “flow through mining expenditures” within the meaning of the Tax Act.
All securities issued are subject to a hold period of four months and one day from closing, in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws, expiring on December 5, 2022.
