Kestrel Gold Inc. (TSX VENTURE:KGC) ("Kestrel" or the "Corporation") announces that it has revised the terms of its previously announced non-brokered private placement offering of up to 10,000,000 units of the Corporation ("Units") at a purchase price of $0.05 per Unit for total proceeds of up to $500,000 (the "Offering"). Each Unit shall consist of one common share in the capital of the Corporation ("Common Share") and one Common Share purchase warrant of the Corporation ("Warrant"). Each full Warrant will be exercisable into one Common Share at a price of $0.10 per Common Share for 24 months from the date of issuance. It was previously announced that the warrants would have an accelerated expiry provision which would allow the Corporation to accelerate expiry provided certain conditions were met, however the proposed Warrants terms will no longer include this feature.
The finder's fees payable to eligible persons ("Finders") on a portion of the Offering have now been revised to consist of a cash payment equal to 10% and the issuance of finder's warrants ("Finder's Warrants") equal to 10% of the gross proceeds raised from applicable subscriptions in the Offering. Each Finder's Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one additional Common Share at a price of $0.10 for a period of 24 months from the closing date of the Offering (the "Closing Date"). All other terms of the proposed private placement will remain the same.
All Common Shares, Warrants, Finder's Warrants and any Common Shares into which such securities may be converted shall be subject to a four (4) month statutory hold period from the Closing Date. The private placement is subject to regulatory approvals, including from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange").
The Corporation also announces it has agreed to settle debt in the aggregate of $50,000 owing to two creditors by issuing 500,000 Common Shares to the first creditor, who is also insider of the Corporation, at a deemed price of $0.05 per Common Share and by issuing 500,000 Units to the second creditor at a deemed price of $0.05 per Unit. The transactions contemplated by the debt settlements are subject to certain conditions and approvals, including but not limited to the approval of the Exchange.
