VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 20, 2013) - Blackheath Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BHR)(FRANKFURT:04B) ("Blackheath" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has increased the size of its previously-announced private placement from $1,050,000 to $1,708,000.
The non-brokered private placement will now comprise up to 4,880,000 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.35 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $1,708,000 (the "Private Placement"). The Units will be issued to a strategic group of investors. Each Unit will comprise one common share of the Company and one non-transferable common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.50 per share for a period of 36 months from closing of the Private Placement.
The Warrants will be subject to acceleration such that, commencing on the date that is four months and one day after the closing of the Private Placement, if the closing price of the Company's common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange, or any other exchange on which the Company's shares are then listed, is at a price equal to or greater than $0.80 for a period of twenty (20) consecutive trading days, the Company will have the right to accelerate the expiry date of all Warrants by giving written notice to the holders of the Warrants that the Warrants will expire on the date that is not less than thirty (30) days from the date of the notice to the Warrant holders.
Qualified persons acting as finders in connection with the Private Placement will receive a cash commission of up to 7% of the proceeds raised from persons introduced to the Company by the finders and non-transferable units ("Finders' Units") equal to up to 7% of the number of Units sold to persons introduced to the Company by the finders. Each Finders' Unit will be comprised of one common share of the Company and one non-transferable common share purchase warrant having the same terms as the subscribers' Warrants.
Blackheath intends to expend the proceeds raised from the Private Placement on exploration of the Covas, Borralha and Bejanca tungsten projects in northern Portugal and for general working capital purposes.
Closing of the Private Placement remains subject to certain conditions, including, but not limited to, receipt of all required regulatory approvals.
