Vancouver, B.C. – June 30, 2020: San Marco Resources Inc. (TSX-V: SMN) is pleased to announce that, due to strong investor demand, it is increasing the size of its non-brokered private placement offering to $4,000,000 consisting of: (i) “charity flow-through” Units at a price of $0.34 each (the “Charity FT Unit Offering”) and (ii) “flow-through” Units at a price of $0.26 each (the “FT Unit Offering” and, together with the Charity FT Unit Offering, the “Offering”). Eventus Capital Corp. has been appointed as a finder in connection with the Offering and will be paid a 7% cash fee and issued that number of compensation warrants (having the terms described below) equal to 7% of the Units sold.
Bob Willis, CEO & Director, stated, “San Marco very much appreciates the strong support from the institutional investor community. We are looking forward to continue a very expanded drill program at the Buck Property as soon as possible.”
Each Unit will consist of one ‘flow-through’ common share and one half of a common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant (a “Warrant”) will entitle the purchase of one (non-flow-through) common share for 24 months at a price of $0.34. If the closing price of the Company’s common shares (“Common Shares”) is greater than $0.70 for 10 consecutive trading days, San Marco will have the right to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants by giving notice, via a new release, to the Warrant holders that the Warrants will expire 30 days after the issuance of the news release. The compensation warrants will be exercisable for two years at a price of $0.26 per share and will not be subject to the acceleration provision.
Common Shares comprising part of the Units issued under the Charity FT Unit Offering and FT Unit Offering will qualify as ‘flow through shares’ (“Flow Through Shares”) under the Income Tax Act (Canada). The gross proceeds from the Offering will be used to incur ‘Canadian exploration expenses’ that will qualify as ‘flow through mining expenditures’ under the Income Tax Act and will be renounced to the initial purchasers of the Flow Through Shares.
Proceeds of the Offering will be used for funding exploration of the Company’s Buck Property. Closing of the Offering is expected on or about July 21, 2020. All the securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a four month restricted resale period. Completion of the placement is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities in the United States of America. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, (the “U.S. Securities Act”) or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to U.S. Persons (as defined in the U.S. Securities Act) unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws, or an exemption from such registration requirement is available.
