Constantine Metal Resources Ltd. (TSX Venture: CEM) (“Constantine” or the “Company”) announces that is increasing the size of its current financing by $500,000.
On November 16, 2010 the Company announced that it had entered into an agreement with Primary Capital Inc. (the “Agent”) whereby the Agent would offer the sale of a combination of hard dollar units (“Hard Dollar Units”) and flow-through units (“Flow-Through Units”) for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $3,000,000 on a best efforts basis, with a maximum of $1,200,000 in Flow-Through Units. Under the terms of a revised agreement reached with the Agent, the Company will offer up to $2,300,000 in Hard Dollar Units and $1,200,000 Flow-Through Units.
Each Hard Dollar Unit is priced at $0.15 and will consist of one non-flow-through common share and one half of one non-flow-through share purchase warrant. Each full warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional non-flow-through common share of the Company at a price of $0.20 per share for a period of 24 months from the date of closing. Each Flow-Through Unit is priced at $0.175 and will consist of one flow-through common share and one half of one non-flow-through share purchase warrant. Each full warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional non-flow-through common share of the Company at a price of $0.20 per share for a period of 24 months from the date of closing.
The Company will pay the Agent an aggregate cash commission equal to 7% of the gross proceeds raised in respect of the private placement and issue an aggregate number of non-transferrable broker warrants to the Agent to 7% of the offered securities sold. Each broker warrant will be exercisable into one common share for a period of 24 months at an exercise price of $0.20 from the date of closing. The financing is expected to close on or about December 1, 2010 and is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The proceeds of the hard dollar portion of the financing will be used to explore Constantine’s copper-rich Palmer VMS deposit in Alaska, in addition to general working capital, and the flow through portion of the financing will be used for exploration and drilling on the Canadian gold projects including the Munro Croesus gold project, which hosts the past producing high grade Croesus Gold Mine located east of the Timmins gold camp.
Certain directors and officers of the Company may acquire shares under the private placement. Any such participation would be considered to be a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”). The transaction will be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of any shares issued to or the consideration paid by such persons will exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization. This private placement is subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
About the Company
Constantine has a 100% interest in two exceptional projects located in world class exploration environments where management has strong familiarity and expertise. These include the Palmer Project, where the Company has made a major new copper-zinc-silver-gold discovery in a very accessible part of southeast Alaska, and the Munro-Croesus Project, that includes a past-producing mine property that yielded some of the highest grade gold ever mined in Ontario. The Palmer Project is host to a NI43-101 compliant 4.12 million tonne inferred resource grading 2.01% copper, 4.79% zinc, 0.30 g/t gold and 31 g/t silver (using an NSR cut-off of US$75/t; see news release dated January 20, 2010) that is open to expansion.
Last week the Company announced that it recently staked 1,500 claims in the Mayo Mining District, Yukon Territory, Canada, as part of a 50/50 joint venture with Carlin Gold Corporation. The Company also recently acquired a 100% interest in two early-stage gold projects, the Trapper Gold Property in northwestern British Columbia that is host to a two kilometer long gold in soil anomaly with no reported prior drilling, and the Phoenix Gold Property south of the Timmins gold camp in Ontario.
