TORONTO, Dec. 15, 2021 /CNW/ – Orford Mining Corp. (“Orford” or the “Company”) (TSXV: ORM) is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement of: (i) approximately 14.35 million flow-through shares at an issue price of C$0.23 per share, and (ii) approximately 8.7 million “hard dollar” units at an issue price of C$0.18 per unit. (the “Offering”), to raise gross proceeds of up to $5,000,000 from the sale of flow-through units, hard dollar units, or any combination thereof. Each hard dollar unit will consist of one common share and one-half of a common share purchase warrant.  Each whole common share purchase warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share of the Company for a period of two years at an exercise price of $0.26.
