The net proceeds will be used by the Company for financing a diamond drilling program of 1,000 to 1,500 meters at the Chita South porphyry target, option payments relating to the Company's material properties and for general working capital purposes.
No commission or finder's fee will be paid in connection with the Private Placement. The Shares will be subject to a hold period of four months and a day from their date of issuance. The Company expects to complete the Private Placement within 30 days.
A portion of the gross proceeds is expected to be subscribed for by Compañía de Tierras Sud Argentino S.A. ("CTSA"), an insider and control person of the Company.
