QUESNEL, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - May 8, 2014) - Prosper Gold Corp. ("Prosper Gold" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:PGX) announces that it has completed the previously announced private placement of a total of 6,000,000 units ("Units") at a price of $0.50 for gross proceeds of $3,000,000 (the "Private Placement").
Each Unit issued under the Private Placement consists of one common share ("Prosper Share") and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant") with each Warrant exercisable to acquire one Prosper Share for a period of 36 months at an exercise price equal to $0.75. In the event that Prosper Gold's common shares trade at a closing price on the TSX Venture Exchange of greater than $1.00 per share for a period of twenty consecutive trading days at any time after the closing date of the Private Placement, Prosper Gold may accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants by giving notice to the holders thereof and in such case the Warrants will expire on the 30th day after the date on which such notice is given by Prosper Gold (the "Acceleration Provision"). Prosper Gold is also pleased to announce that existing Insiders have collectively subscribed for more than 1,000,000 Units.
In connection with the Private Placement and in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange, finder's fees totaling approximately $50,000 in cash were paid and approximately 100,000 common share purchase warrants (each, a "Finder Warrant") were issued. Each Finder Warrant is non-transferable and exercisable for one Prosper Share for a period of 36 months following closing at an exercise price equal to $0.50. The Finder Warrants contain the same Acceleration Provision as the Warrants comprising the Units.
Prosper Gold expects to use the net proceeds from the Private Placement to fund exploration activities for 2014 at the Company's Star Porphyry Copper Gold Project (the "Property") and for working capital and general corporate purposes. The Property is optioned from Firesteel Resources Inc. (for further details, please refer to the Company's May 7, 2013 news release).
