Vancouver, British Columbia, November 2nd., 2023 – Gold Hunter Resources Inc. (CSE: HUNT) (“Gold Hunter”, “HUNT” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the successful closing of its previously announced private placement for total gross proceeds of $720,000. Of note, Mr. Eric Sprott acquired 800,000 Units for a total consideration of $200,000.
The Company previously announced its intention to raise funds through a combination of non-flow-through units (“Units”) and flow-through units. However, due to strategic considerations, Gold Hunter elected to raise funds solely through Units. The Company has issued a total of 2,880,000 Units at a price of $0.25 per Unit for gross proceeds of $720,000. Each Unit consisted of one common share (a “Share”) and one transferable common share purchase warrant exercisable for one additional Share at a price of $0.35 for a period of 24 months from today. All securities issued will be subject to a statutory hold period expiring four months and a day from the date of distribution.
“We are incredibly grateful for the support from our strategic shareholders and the investment community,”commented Sean Kingsley, President & CEO of Gold Hunter.
An Insider of the Company participated in the Private Placement in the amount of 40,000 Units. Participation by an insider constitutes a related party transaction as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (”MI 61-101”). The issuance of Securities to the related party is exempt from the formal valuation requirements of Section 5.4 of MI 61-101 pursuant to Subsection 5.5(b) of MI 61-101 and exempt from the minority shareholder approval requirements of Section 5.6 of MI 61-101 pursuant to Subsection 5.7(b) of MI 61-101.
In relation to the financing, the Company has also paid finder’s fees of $14,000 and issued 56,000 finder’s warrants to arm’s-length parties, each entitling the holder to acquire one Share at a price of $0.35 for a period of 24 months from today.
The Company intends to allocate the funds raised towards general operational expenses and ongoing business activities.
The Company also announces that the bridge loans to the Company that were disclosed in its news release dated July 13, 2023, have now been repaid in full. The bridge loans totaled $75,000 (rather than the $100,000 disclosed in that news release). As disclosed in that news release, the Company has issued a total of 300,000 bonus warrants to the lenders in connection with the repayment of those loans (one of whom is an insider of the Company). Each such bonus warrant is exercisable to purchase one Share at a price of $0.35 for a period of 24 months from today. The bonus warrants along with any common shares acquired upon their conversion will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day from their date of issuance.
