Lincoln Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE:LMG) ("Lincoln" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed a first tranche of the previously announced $900,000 non-brokered private placement.
The Company issued a total of 2,750,000 units at a price of $0.10 per unit ("Units") for total gross proceeds of $275,000. Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company and one-half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.12 per share until August 16, 2018.
As compensation, qualified persons acting as finders in connection with the private placement ("Finders") will receive a cash commission of 7% of the proceeds raised and non-transferable warrants ("Finder's Warrants"), having the same terms as the Warrants, equal to 7% of the total number of Units sold to persons introduced to the Company by the Finder. The Company issued a total of 157,500 Finder's Warrants and paid a total of $15,750 in cash commissions in connection with the closing of the first tranche of the private placement.
All securities issued or issuable under the first tranche of the private placement will be subject to a four month hold period in Canada expiring on December 17, 2016, in addition to such other restrictions as may apply under applicable securities laws of jurisdictions outside of Canada.
Lincoln intends to use the proceeds raised from the first tranche of the private placement for general working capital and administrative purposes.
The Company is working to complete a second and final tranche of the private placement by the end of September 2016.
