VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Jan. 3, 2017) - Valterra Resource Corporation ("Valterra") (TSX VENTURE:VQA)(FRANKFURT:3VA)(OTCQB:VRSCF) reported today that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered Flow Through private placement (the "Offering") by issuing 5,630,215 units of the Company ("Units") at a price of CDN$0.05 per Unit for gross proceeds of CDN$281,510. Each Flow-Through Unit consists of one common share without par value in the capital of the Company (a "Share") and one half (1/2) common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each full Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Share at a price of CDN$0.10 per Share for a period of 5 years. All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a hold period expiring April 30, 2017, which is four months and one day following the closing of the Offering.
Finders' fees and commissions will be paid by Valterra in relation to this issuance.
Net proceeds from the private placement will be used to fund costs associated with exploration on Valterra's 100% owned porphyry/shear-hosted copper-gold-silver Swift Katie Project in southeastern British Columbia near Salmo. The Phase I exploration program now completed, consisted of 1,951 metres of drilling in six (6) core holes and targeted offsets of high-grade gold intercepts from 2014 drilling on the property which returned a significant intercept of a 3.5m interval averaging 13.3g/t gold, 201g/t silver and 0.33% copper in hole SK14-002. The gold-enriched mineralization was returned from a sulphide rich shear approximately 165 metres below surface and is open in all directions. Drilling tested both up dip and along strike of the high-grade intercept in order to better define the orientation of the mineralization and geological setting.
