Nevada Exploration Closes Oversubscribed $2.1M Financing
April 11, 2019
Nevada Exploration Inc. (“NGE” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: NGE; OTCQB: NVDEF) is pleased to announce that it has closed the previously announced private placement offering (the “Offering”), pursuant to which it has issued 7,752,645 units (the “Units”) at a price of $0.275 per Unit, for gross proceeds of $2,131,977, an increase of 1,752,645 Units from the 6,000,000 Units contemplated in the news release dated April 2, 2019.
Commenting on the financing, NGE’s President, James Buskard: “The recent news surrounding Barrick Gold Corp. and Newmont Mining Corp.’s Nevada JV has brought renewed interest in exploring for Carlin-type gold deposits (CTGDs) in Nevada. Their Nevada JV combines three CTGD camps to create the world’s largest gold complex, with a projected annual production of 4.1 million ounces. These large CTGDs are the types of deposits for which Nevada is famous and represent both the type and scale of deposit that we have built our industry-leading undercover exploration program to search for.
“Building from our very successful winter drilling program at South Grass Valley, we’re looking forward to a busy 2019 field season. Our plans include follow-up drilling at South Grass Valley, as well as continued work at our Kelly Creek and Grass Valley projects, which together represent three district-scale projects we control along the Battle Mountain-Eureka (Cortez) Trend. In the coming weeks we’ll be sharing our updated exploration model for South Grass Valley, as well as our specific objectives and plans for the next phase of drilling at the project.”
Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”), with each whole Warrant entitling the holder to acquire an additional Common Share at an exercise price of $0.50 per Common Share for 30 months. If the closing price of the common shares of NGE quoted on the TSX Venture Exchange is greater than $0.90 for 10 consecutive trading days, NGE may accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to the 30th day after the date on which NGE gives notice to the Warrant holders of such acceleration. All securities issued are subject to a four month plus one day hold period expiring August 11, 2019. Proceeds from the Offering will be used to fund exploration work at NGE’s South Grass Valley, Kelly Creek, and Grass Valley Projects, and for general working capital. In connection with the Offering, the Company paid finders’ fees totalling 320,856 Units.
About Nevada Exploration Inc.
NGE is an exploration company advancing a portfolio of new district-scale gold exploration projects along Nevada’s Battle Mountain-Eureka (Cortez) Trend. NGE is led by an experienced management team that has been involved in several significant discoveries in Nevada, including the discovery of Lone Tree and Rabbit Creek (part of the Twin Creeks Mine). NGE’s team has spent the last decade integrating the use of hydrogeochemistry with conventional exploration tools to develop a Nevada-specific regional-scale geochemistry exploration program.
With new proprietary technology, NGE has completed the world’s largest groundwater sampling program for gold exploration, collecting approximately 6,000 samples to evaluate Nevada’s covered basins for new gold exploration targets. To advance follow-up targets, NGE has overcome the high drilling costs that have previously prohibited the wide-spread use of drilling as a prospecting tool by developing its Scorpion drill rig, a small-footprint, truck-mounted, small-diameter RC drill rig specifically tailored to the drilling conditions in Nevada’s basins (analogous to RAB drilling in other parts of the world).
By integrating hydrogeochemistry and early-stage low-cost drilling with conventional exploration methods, NGE is overcoming the challenges and radically reducing the costs of exploring in Nevada’s covered basins, and is taking significant steps to open this important new search space up for district-scale exploration.
