Rise Resources Inc. (CSE:UPP) (OTC PINK:RYES) ("Rise" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it is in the process of arranging the purchase of a substantial area of private land in the United States which hosts a significant historic gold mine. The project was a leading gold producer in the United States and was in the process of a major production expansion before being suddenly shut down during World War II. Rise believes it can prepare a mineral resource estimate, exploration plan, and a preliminary mine plan through processing historic data on the property within two months of the closing of the purchase. Further details regarding the project will be released upon the closing.
Rise is also pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement of up to 17,500,000 units at a price of $0.20 per unit for gross proceeds of up to $3,500,000 (the "Private Placement"). Each unit will consist of one share of the Company's common stock and one-half of a transferable share purchase warrant, with each whole warrant exercisable into one share of common stock at a price of $0.40 for a period of two years from the date of issuance. All securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to statutory hold periods in accordance with applicable United States and Canadian securities laws for a minimum of four months and a day.
Rise expects to use the proceeds from the Private Placement for the purchase of private land in the United States as described above and for general working capital purposes. The Company may pay finder's fees to eligible persons in accordance with applicable securities laws and regulatory policies.
