Canadian Orebodies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CO) (the "Company") is pleased to announce it has engaged Marquest Asset Management Inc. and Secutor Capital Management Corp. (the "Lead Agents") to conduct a brokered private placement offering of securities of the Company (the "Offering") to raise gross proceeds of up to $3,500,000 through the sale of flow-through units (the "FT Units") at a price of $0.20 per FT Unit and through the sale of non flow-through units (the "Units") at a price of $0.18 per Unit.
Each FT Unit will consist of one (1) common share of the Company issued on a "flow-through" basis and one-half (1/2) of one common share purchase warrant (each such whole common share purchase warrant, a "Warrant") also to be issued on a "flow-through" basis. Each Unit will consist of one (1) common share of the Company and one-half (1/2) of one Warrant. Each Warrant entitles its holder to purchase one non-flow through common share at a price of $0.30 per share for a period of eighteen (18) months from the date of issue.
The proceeds of the Offering will be used primarily for costs associated with the exploration and advancement of the Company's Haig Inlet Iron Project and for general working capital purposes.
In connection with the Offering, the Company will pay to the Lead Agents a fee equal to 6% of the gross proceeds of the Offering and issue non-transferable compensation options ("Compensation Options") to the Lead Agents equal to 6% of the total number of FT Units and Units sold in the Offering, excluding the portion of gross proceeds attributable to subscribers identified on a "President's List". Each Compensation Option is exercisable to acquire one (1) Unit at the price of $0.18 per share for a period of eighteen months from the date of issue. It is expected that insiders of the Company will be subscribing for securities in the Offering, on the same terms as arm's length investors.
All securities to be issued in connection with the Offering are subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance. Closing of the Offering is conditional on the receipt of all required regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
