VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Dec. 7, 2016) - Valterra Resource Corporation (the "Company" or "Valterra") (TSX VENTURE:VQA)(FRANKFURT:3VA)(OTCQB:VRSCF) reported today that it has expanded its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the "Financing") to provide for investments through an Investment Dealer in the jurisdictions in Canada where this exemption applies. The Financing consists of 10,000,000 flow-through units ("Units") at a price of Cdn$0.05 per Unit, for maximum gross proceeds of Cdn$500,000 (the "Maximum Offering"). The Company plans to issue at least a minimum of 4,000,000 Units for gross proceeds of Cdn$200,000 (the "Minimum Offering"). Each Unit will consist of one common share and one half non-flow-through warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share at a price of $0.10 for a period of five years from the closing date.
Proceeds under both the Maximum Offering and Minimum Offering will be used to fund costs associated with additional exploration/drilling on Valterra's 100% owned porphyry/shear-hosted copper-gold-silver Swift Katie Project in southeastern British Columbia near Salmo. The initial exploration program, now completed, consisted of up to 1500 metres of drilling in four to five core holes and targeted offsets of high-grade gold intercepts from the 2014 drilling on the property which returned a 3.5m interval averaging 13.3g/t gold, 201g/t silver and 0.33% copper in hole SK14-002. This 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 this high-grade intercept in order better define the orientation of the mineralization and geological setting.
The shares and warrants issued pursuant to the Financing will be subject to a hold period expiring four months and one day from the date of distribution of the Units. There are no undisclosed material facts or material changes respecting Valterra.
