Val-d’Or, Québec, August 28, 2017 — Val-d’Or Mining Corporation (TSX-V:MZZ) (formerly Nunavik Nickel Mines Ltd.) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding agreement with Canaccord Genuity Corp. (“Canaccord”) pursuant to which Canaccord has agreed to be the sole lead manager and sole bookrunner in respect of a proposed commercially reasonable efforts offering (the “Offering”) to the public by the Company of 12,000,000 Units at a price per Unit of $0.10 for gross proceeds of $1,200,000, each Unit consisting of one common share in the capital of the Company and one-half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant, each whole warrant (a “Warrant”) exercisable for the purchase of one common share of the Company at a per share price of $0.15 for a period of 36 months from the date of closing of the Offering.
The Units proposed to be sold under the Offering will be distributed to the public through the filing by the Company of a short form prospectus with the securities regulatory authorities in the provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, Québec and Saskatchewan, and in such other provinces or jurisdictions that may be mutually agreed to by the Company and Canaccord.
The Company has granted Canaccord an over-allotment option (the “Over-Allotment Option”) exercisable within 60 days from closing of the Offering in whole or in part by the Agent, at the sole discretion of the Agent, to require the Company to increase the size of the Offering by up to 15% of the base Offering to cover any over-allocation position. Such Over-Allotment Option will be qualified for distribution under the short form prospectus. The Company has agreed to pay Canaccord a commission equal to 10% of the aggregate gross proceeds raised under the Offering payable in cash or satisfied by the issuance of Units at a deemed per Unit price of $0.10, or any combination of cash or Units at Canaccord’s option, plus a corporate finance fee of $20,000, $10,000 of which has been paid to Canaccord by the Company and the $10,000 balance of which is payable on closing of the Offering. The Company has also agreed to issue to Canaccord warrants (the “Agent’s Warrants”) entitling the purchase of that number of Units of the Company as is equal to 10% of the number of Units sold under the Offering at an exercise price per Unit of $0.10 for a period of 36 months from the date of closing of the Offering, the Units underlying the Agent’s Warrants having the same attributes as the Units to be issued under the Offering.
The Offering is expected to close on a date to be mutually agreed upon by the Company and Canaccord, subject to customary conditions and all regulatory approvals including acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.
The proceeds raised under the Offering will be used by the Company to conduct the recommended work program on its Baden Property, exploration on certain of its other property interests, and for general corporate purposes.
