NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA OR TO ANY PERSON LOCATED OR RESIDENT IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, ITS TERRITORIES AND POSSESSIONS, ANY STATE OF THE UNITED STATES OR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
TORONTO, Jan. 25, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Fredonia Mining Inc. (TSXV: FRED) (the “Company” or “Fredonia“) is pleased to announce that it intends to increase the size of its previously announced non-brokered private placement offering (the “Offering“). The Company now expects to issue up to 18,000,000 units (the “Units“) at a price of $0.05 per Unit (the “Issue Price”) for total gross proceeds of up to $900,000. Each Unit will comprise one common share of the Company (the “Common Shares“) and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (the “Warrants”). Each Warrant will be exercisable at a price of $0.10 per Common Share for two years from the date the Offering closes.
The expected net proceeds from the Offering are not different from the previous announcements and are intended to be used for working capital and general corporate purposes.
To accommodate additional interest in the Offering, the Offering is now expected to close on a date in early February 2024 (the “Closing Date“), subject to regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions, including approval for listing of the Common Shares (including Common Shares issuable on exercise of the Warrants) on the TSX Venture Exchange. All Common Shares and Warrants issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day.
The Common Shares have not been, and will not be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act“), or any U.S. state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States without registration under the U.S. Securities Act and all applicable state securities laws or compliance with the requirements of an applicable exemption therefrom. This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities in the United States, nor may there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
Certain directors and officers of the Company are expected to participate in the Offering. A material change report with respect to the Offering is expected to be filed less than 21 days before the expected Closing Date, which is reasonable and necessary in the circumstances for the Company to take advantage of available financing opportunities.
Fredonia indirectly owns a 100% interest in certain license areas (totaling approximately 18,300 ha.) (collectively, the “Project”), all within the Deseado Massif geological region in the Province of Santa Cruz, Argentina, including the following principal areas: El Aguila (approximately 9,100 ha.), Petrificados (approximately 3,000 ha.), and the flagship, advanced El Dorado-Monserrat property (approximately 6,200 ha.) located close to AngloGold Ashanti’s Cerro Vanguardia mine, subject to a 1.5% net smelter return royalty on the EDM project, and a 0.5% net profits interest on Winki II, El Aguila I, El Aguila II and Hornia (ex Petrificados).
