Valterra Resource Corporation (“Valterra” or the “Company”) reported today that it plans to issue up to 12,000,000 units at $0.10 per unit in a private placement for total gross proceeds of Cdn$1,200,000. Each unit will consist of one common share and one-half share purchase warrant, with each full warrant exercisable for two years with the right to purchase one common share at an exercise price of $0.15 per share. Finders’ fees and commissions may be paid by Valterra in relation to this issuance. The Company will make provision for an over-allotment option (Greenshoe) to allow a purchase of up to 10% additional units beyond the number of units in this offering. The securities issued upon closing of this offering will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day from issuance. Management and certain Insiders have committed to lead orders of $300,000.
Net proceeds from the private placement will be used to fund costs associated with the second phase of a two phase exploration program on the Los Reyes Au-Cu project, Mexico. A phase I, surface mapping and sampling program followed by a short 8 to 10 line-kilometre IP geophysical program over the target area has been successfully completed. Permits are in place for the phase II exploration program which will consist of a six to eight core hole drill program anticipated in Q1/Q2, totaling up to 2,500m which will test a 400 metre strike length of the target Cu-Au skarn. Management believes that the Los Reyes Au-Cu project, Mexico, has significant near-term exploration potential for a high-grade Cu-Au mineral resource. Net proceeds will also be used for general working capital which includes: G&A, property maintenance and property option payments for all of the company’s projects.
The private placement is subject to regulatory approval.
