VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 13, 2012) - Teslin River Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TLR) ("Teslin" or the "Company") announces that the Company is proposing to undertake a consolidation (the "Consolidation") of its share capital on the basis of up to five (5) old common shares for one (1) new common share. The proposed Consolidation was approved by the Company's shareholders at the annual meeting held on June 28, 2012, and is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
As of the date hereof, the Company has 55,609,061 common shares issued and outstanding. After giving effect to the Consolidation, the Company would have approximately 11,121,812 common shares issued and outstanding. The Company does not propose to change the corporate name of the Company in conjunction with the Consolidation.
The Company believes that the Consolidation is necessary so that the Company will be better positioned to access the equity markets in order to raise the capital required for the Company to continue exploration work on its properties.
The Company is also pleased to announce that it has arranged a non-brokered private placement of up to 10,000,000 units ("Units") and 10,000,000 flow through units ("FT Units") of the Company (on a post-Consolidation basis) at a price of $0.10 per unit (the "Offering") to raise gross proceeds of up to $2.0 million. Each Unit will consist of one common share in the Company ("Share") and one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each FT Unit will consist of one flow through common share and one half of one Warrant. Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.15 per common share for a period of 12 months following the closing date, provided that if the closing price of the Company's shares on the TSX Venture Exchange exceeds $0.25 per share for a period of 15 consecutive trading days which ends more than four months and one day following the last closing date under the offering and which includes the date of giving the acceleration notice referred to in this sentence, at the Company's election, the period within which the Warrants are exercisable will be reduced to 30 days from the date on which the Company gives notice accelerating the term of the Warrants.
The Company may pay finder's fees in connection with the offering. The Offering is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The Company anticipates closing of the Offering and Consolidation as soon as practicable, subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals.
The net proceeds from the Offering will be used to fund the Company's exploration activities at the Frasergold property, other mineral properties, including its Morningstar property, and for general working capital.
