Sage Gold Inc. is pleased to announce that it has closed its private placement with the MineralFields Group and others for gross proceeds of $907,695.00 through the sale of 6,051,300 flow-through units (the FT Units) at $0.15 per unit.
Each FT Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company (a Common Share) issued as a flow-through share under the Income Tax Act (Canada) and one-half of one warrant (an Warrant). Each whole Warrant is exercisable to purchase one non-flow through Common Share at a price of $0.20 per share for 24 months from the closing date.
The finder's fees paid in respect of the private placement of FT Units in this tranche were comprised of $72,615.60 in cash (equal to 8% of the gross proceeds from the sale of FT Units placed by finders), plus 484,104 finder's fee options, equal to 8% of the number of FT Units placed by finders (the FT Finder's Options). The FT Finder's Options are exercisable for units at a price of $0.20 per unit for a period of 24 months from the closing date, each unit being comprised of one non flow-through Common Share and one-half of one warrant, with each whole warrant having the same terms as the Warrants.
All securities are subject to a four month hold period which expires on March 15, 2012. This private placement is subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the Exchange). The Company has received conditional approval of the private placement from the Exchange.
The private placement of FT Units has been conducted concurrently with a private placement of common share units of the Company. For further details regarding the private placement, including details of the first tranche of the private placement, please refer to the Company's press releases of the September 28, 2011, October 27, 2011, and November 11, 2011.
The net proceeds of the private placement will be used to fund the Company's exploration programs in Canada, and to the extent permitted, for general working capital.
We are very pleased to be continuing our relationship with the MineralFields Group, who subscribed for 5,000,000 of the FT Units, said Nigel Lees, President and CEO. This is an important milestone in the growth of Sage Gold Inc. and we look forward to working with the MineralFields Group as we develop our Clavos property in Timmins, Ontario.
