Constantine Metal Resources Ltd. (TSX Venture- CEM) (“Constantine” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its brokered unit private placement with Primary Capital Inc. (the “Agent”) has closed. The financing consisted of the sale of a combination of $2,300,000 in hard dollar units (“Hard Dollar Units”) and $1,200,000 in flow-through units (“Flow-Through Units”) for aggregate gross proceeds of $3,500,000.
A total of 15,333,334 Hard Dollar Units was sold at a price of $0.15 per unit, each Hard Dollar Unit consisting of one non-flow-through common share and one half of one non-flow-through share purchase warrant. Each full warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional non-flow-through common share of the Company at a price of $0.20 per share for a period of 24 months from the date of closing. A total of 6,857,143 Flow-Through Units was sold at a price of $0.175 per unit, each Flow-Through Unit consisting of one flow-through common share and one half of one non-flow-through share purchase warrant. Each full warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional non-flow-through common share of the Company at a price of $0.20 per share for a period of 24 months from the date of closing.
The Company issued 1,494,078 warrants, exercisable on the same terms as the financing warrants, and paid $235,623.50 to the Agent in consideration of the Agent’s services in the private placement.
Three directors and/or officers of the Company participated in the financing by purchasing an aggregate of 70,000 Hard Dollar Units and 205,000 Flow-Through Units and, accordingly, the holdings of securities in the Company by insiders has increased.
All of the above securities are subject to a four-month plus one-day hold period expiring April 14, 2011 in accordance with applicable securities laws and stock exchange rules.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the hard dollar portion of the financing to explore Constantine’s copper-rich Palmer VMS deposit in Alaska, for the acquisition of property interests in the Yukon Territory and for general working capital and other corporate purposes, and the proceeds of the flow-through portion of the financing for exploration and drilling on the Canadian gold projects, including the Munro Croesus gold project, which hosts the past producing high grade Croesus Gold Mine located east of the Timmins gold camp.
Constantine has a 100% interest in two strong projects located in world class exploration environments where management has strong familiarity and expertise. These include the Palmer Project, where the Company has made a major new copper-zinc-silver-gold discovery in a very accessible part of southeast Alaska, and the Munro-Croesus Project, that includes a past-producing mine property that yielded some of the highest grade gold ever mined in Ontario. The Palmer Project is host to a National Instrument 43-101 compliant 4.12 million tonne inferred resource grading 2.01% copper, 4.79% zinc, 0.30 g/t gold and 31 g/t silver (using an NSR cut-off of US$75/t; see news release dated January 20, 2010) that is open to expansion.
Two weeks ago the Company announced that it recently staked 1,500 claims in the Mayo Mining District, Yukon Territory, Canada, as part of a 50/50 joint venture with Carlin Gold Corporation. The Company also recently acquired a 100% interest in two early-stage gold projects, the Trapper Gold Property in northwestern British Columbia that is host to a two kilometer long gold in soil anomaly with no reported prior drilling, and the Phoenix Gold Property south of the Timmins gold camp in Ontario.
