NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
Global Minerals Ltd. ("Global" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CTG) is pleased to announce that, due to strong response from investors, the Company has increased its non-brokered private placement financing (the "Financing") to $3.5 million from the previously approved $3 million as set out in the Company's news release dated January 13, 2014. The amended financing will be completed through the issuance of 12,000,000 post-consolidation units (the "Units") to be issued at a price of $0.25 per Unit. Each Unit will be comprised of one post-consolidation common share and one share purchase warrant, exercisable to purchase one post-consolidation common share for two years at a price of $0.35. The expiry date of the warrants will be subject to acceleration such that, should the daily trading price of the shares of the Company on the TSX Venture Exchange (or such other stock exchange on which such shares are listed) exceed $0.50 (on a post-consolidated basis) for twenty consecutive trading days commencing four months after the issuance of the warrant (the "Acceleration Period"), the warrants will expire on the 30th day following the last day of the Acceleration Period. The Company must issue a news release announcing the accelerated expiry within two trading days of the last day of the Acceleration Period.
The Financing is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval and all securities will be subject to a four month resale restriction. Finder's fees will be payable in connection with the private placement, in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The proceeds from the Financing will be used to further the development of the Strieborná project and for general working capital.
Strieborná is a high-grade silver-copper vein type deposit in an historic mining district near the town of Roznava in eastern Slovakia. It has excellent expansion potential over and above the already well-defined resource. Significant infrastructure at site include a working shaft and hoisting system, extensive underground access through a series of drifts, crosscuts and tunnels and associated surface facilities. Global is using all efforts to advance the property into commercial production.
