Vancouver, BC / TheNewswire / September 20, 2018 / Global Energy Metals Corporation TSXV:GEMC | OTCQB:GBLEF | FSE:5GE1 (“Global Energy Metals”, the “Company” and/or “GEMC”) announces the undertaking of a non-brokered private placement for gross proceeds of up to CAD$500,000 (the “Private Placement” or “Offering”).
The Private Placement will consist of the issuance of a maximum of 6,666,667 units (the “Units”) at a subscription price of CAD$0.075 per Unit. Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of the Company (a “Share”) and one transferable common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will be exercisable to purchase an additional Share of the Company for a period of 12 months from the closing date (“Closing Date”) at a price of CAD$0.15 subject to acceleration.
Mitchell Smith, President & CEO commented, “This capital raise will support the acquisition and continued advancements at the Millennium and Mt. Isa Cobalt Projects in Australia and recently announced Lovelock Mine and Treasure Box project in Nevada to provide investment exposure to the growing battery metals sector through our growing portfolio of cobalt projects in some of the world’s best mining jurisdictions.”
The Company completed its initial phase one work program at Millennium having reported multiple high-grade and wide intercepts validating the geological model and confirming significant upside potential to grow the resource base at Millennium. GEMC also recently announced that it has entered into a binding agreement with Hammer Metals to acquire the balance of the interest in the Millennium Cobalt project as well as the Mt. Dorothy Cobalt Project and the Cobalt Ridge Project (collectively the “Mt. Isa Projects”), such that it will hold 100% of both Millennium and the Mt. Isa Projects.
This accelerated acquisition of cobalt rich assets positions GEMC as the region’s leading cobalt explorer/developer building a district-scale cobalt opportunity in Queensland Australia’s Mt. Isa prolific mining jurisdiction.
Additionally, GEMC has entered into a LOI with Nevada Sunrise Gold Corp to acquire an 80% interest in the Lovelock Cobalt Mine and the Treasure Box Project located in Churchill County, approximately 150 kilometres east of the Tesla Gigafactory in Sparks, Nevada. The Nevada cobalt project acquisitions further expand GEMC’s cobalt-related holdings building a new footprint in the US at a time when federal orders have been made to break dependence on foreign minerals including cobalt which tops the list of 35.
The net proceeds of the Offering will be used by the Company to fund exploration and development activities at the Millennium Cobalt project, for the completion of the above mentioned transactions, for marketing initiatives as well as general working capital requirements.
All securities issued in connection with the Private Placement will be subject to a statutory hold period of 4 months plus a day from the Closing Date in accordance with applicable securities legislation. Warrants are subject to an acceleration clause whereby if on any 10 consecutive Trading Days occurring after four months and one day has elapsed from the Closing Date, the daily volume weighted average trading price of the common shares of the Company is at least $0.20 per share, the Company may accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to the 30th day after the date on which the Company gives notice to the Subscriber in accordance with the Warrant of such acceleration. Finder's fees may be paid in connection with this Offering. Closing of the Private Placement is subject to the approval of the TSXV.
