Proceeds to Fund Addition of Fifth Drill to Coffee Gold Project
VANCOUVER, May 11, 2012 /CNW/ - Kaminak Gold Corporation (KAM: TSX-V) ("Kaminak" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Canaccord Genuity Corp. (the "Underwriter"), to sell 2,500,000 flow-through common shares (the "Flow-Through Shares") at a price of $2.10 for aggregate gross proceeds of $5,250,000 (the "Offering"). In addition, the Company will grant the Underwriter an over-allotment option, exercisable prior to the closing of the Offering, to purchase from the Company up to an additional 500,000 Flow-Through Shares issued through the Offering, at the same price as is applicable to the Offering.
"Our 2012 drill program is on budget and drill production is progressing well," stated Rob Carpenter, Kaminak's President & CEO. "Securing this financing right now will allow us enough time to try and secure an additional RC rig for the summer drill season."
The Underwriter will receive a cash commission on the sale of the shares, representing 6% of the aggregate gross proceeds raised, including brokers warrants ("Broker Warrants") equal to 5% of the Offering. Each Broker Warrant shall be exercisable for one common share of the Company at a price of C$2.10 at any time up to 24 months after closing.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to conduct exploration activities on its Coffee project located in the White Gold District, Yukon, and for general working capital purposes.
Closing of the Offering is anticipated to occur on or before May 31, 2012 and is subject to receipt of applicable regulatory approvals including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. Securities issued under the Offering and through the over-allotment option will be subject to a four month hold period which will expire four months from the date of closing.
