Rio Silver Announces Private Placement
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Rio Silver Inc. (“Rio Silver” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: RYO) announces a relief private placement financing of up to $160,000. The proceeds of the private placement will be used to fund ongoing operational expenditures, demand loan payments and critical sustaining costs including concession taxes in Peru. The Company’s critical planned path of development in Peru has been delayed, along with the entire local mining industry, for a few more weeks when the Nation is expected to resume all mining activity. Shortly thereafter the company expects to be able to announce commencement of the planned bulk sampling activities at its wholly owned Palta Dorada gold/silver/copper project where Peruvian Metals Corp. is spending US$250,000.00 to earn a 50% interest. Both Companies will share revenue generated by the sale of concentrates beyond direct operational costs.
The non-brokered private placement will be up to 6,400,000 units of the company, at $0.025 per unit, for gross proceeds of up to $160,000. Each unit will consist of one common share of the company and one common share purchase warrant of the company. Each warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one additional common share of the company at a price of $0.08 per share for a period of 24 months from issuance, unless the closing price of the common shares of the company is $0.20 or higher for 15 consecutive trading days any time after the date that is four months and a day after issue, in which case the warrants will expire 30 calendar days after notice to warrant holders announcing an earlier expiry date. It is anticipated that certain insiders of the company will participate in the offering.About Rio SilverRio Silver Inc. is a Canadian-based resource company with a mandate to acquire, explore and develop precious metal deposits in the Americas.
