(TSX-V: JUGR) (OTCQB: JUGRF) (FSE: 4JE) (the “Company” or “Juggernaut”) is pleased to report its previously announced non-brokered private placement financing (the “Financing”) of up to $3 million was met with significant interest from strategic institutions, industry professionals and UHNWI investors resulting in the Financing being over-subscribed. The Financing was capped at $3,040,000 and the Company has filed documents with the TSXV Exchange (“Exchange”) for approval to close the Financing.
Dr. Hennigh stated, “We are delighted to see Juggernaut move toward drilling at Midas and Empire. Given the nature of the targets, potentially high grade and large, and the recent positive trend in the commodity space, Juggernaut is set to be one of the most exciting exploration stories in BC this year. Having reviewed the drill plans, I am quite confident that they could make two notable discoveries this season.”
Dr. Quinton Hennigh has taken on the role as special technical advisor to the Company. He is the technical consultant for all Crescat’s gold and silver mining investments. Dr. Hennigh is a world-renowned exploration geologist with more than 30 years of experience including with major gold mining firms Homestake Mining, Newcrest Mining, and Newmont Mining.
Crescat Capital LLC (“Crescat”) made a strategic investment representing a 19.70% ownership of the Company post funding on a partially diluted basis. Juggernaut welcomes this strategic investment from Crescat Capital and technical support from Dr. Quinton Hennigh. Juggernaut’s projects continue to garner strong interest and support from leading institutions and miners alike, confirming the quality of its three fully permitted, 100% controlled, drill ready projects located in world class geologic terrane of Northwestern British Columbia and the Golden Triangle.
Mr. Dan Stuart, Director, President, and CEO of Juggernaut states:
“We are pleased to have strengthened our relationship both Crescat Capital as a strategic investor and Dr. Hennigh as a Special Technical Advisor and investor. I look forward to working with our partners who bring a proven track record of both financial and technical strength. This will enable Juggernaut to unlock the full potential of its assets over the long term, building value for all shareholders. This investment and strategic partnership, coupled with the ongoing support and interest from other globally recognized Institutions and senior miners, is a strong endorsement that clearly demonstrates the significant near-term discovery potential of our 100% controlled properties. Juggernaut will have a tight capital structure of just 62,447,452 shares, no debt, and a strong cash position of ~ $5,000,000.
