Vancouver, British Columbia | Pucara Gold Ltd. (“Pucara” or the “Company”) (TSXV: TORO, BVL: TORO, OTCPK: PCRAF) is pleased to announce that it has filed documents with the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) for approval to close its $0.05 Unit Private Placement Financing (the “Financing”), previously announced November 14, 2022, for aggregate gross proceeds of $700,000. On receipt of all regulatory approvals, the Company will issue 14,000,000 Units, each Unit being comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company and one common share purchase warrant, with each warrant entitling the holder to purchase one common share at a price of eight cents ($0.08) per share at any time within five years of the date of issuance. All securities to be issued pursuant to the Financing will be subject to a four-month resale restriction.
Two (2) Insiders of the Company subscribed for $91,000, or 1,820,000 Units of the Financing, each such subscription being a “related party transaction” as such term is defined under MI 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions. The Company is relying on exemptions from the formal valuation requirement of MI-61-101 under sections 5.5(a) and (b) of MI 61-101 in respect of the transaction as the fair market value of the transaction, insofar as it involves the interested party, is not more than 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
The proceeds of the private placement will be used by Pucara to fund ongoing CSR efforts and to work towards acquiring drill permits.
