Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – December 30, 2022) – Sanatana Resources Inc. (TSXV: STA) (“Sanatana” or the “Company“) has, further to its news release of December 21, 2022, increased its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) of flow-through units of the Company (the “FT Units”) to accommodate investor demand and has closed the Private Placement.
The Private Placement was increased to raise aggregate gross proceeds of up to $550,000 through the sale of up to 5,500,000 FT Units at a price of $0.10 per FT Unit. Upon closing of the Private Placement, Sanatana issued an aggregate of 5,500,000 FT Units, at a price of $0.10 per FT Unit, for aggregate gross proceeds of $550,000. Each FT Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company, issued as a “flow-through share” within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (a “FT Share”), and one common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one non-flow-through common share in the capital of the Company (a “Warrant Share”) at a price of $0.15 per Warrant Share until December 30, 2024.
The securities issued in connection with this closing are subject to a statutory four-month hold period which expires on May 1, 2023.
In connection with the Private Placement, the Company paid aggregate finders’ fees of $41,000 and issued an aggregate of 410,000 compensation warrants (each, a “Compensation Warrant”), pursuant to finder’s fee agreements entered between the Company and certain finders. Each Compensation Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Warrant Share at a price of $0.10 per Warrant Share until December 30, 2024.
The proceeds from the Private Placement will be used for mineral exploration in British Columbia in connection with the Company’s option on the Oweegee Dome.
Ian Smith, an insider of the Company, subscribed for 500,000 Units ($50,000) under the Private Placement (the “Insider Subscription”). The Insider Subscription constitutes a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Securityholders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company has relied on the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in Sections 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(a), respectively, in respect of the Insider Subscription as the Company is not listed on a specified market and the fair market value of the Units issued to the insider in connection with the Private Placement does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101. The Company did not file a material change report in respect of the related party transaction at least 21 days before the closing of the Private Placement, which the Company deems reasonable in the circumstances in order to complete the Private Placement in an expeditious manner.
