SITKA CLOSES $6.4 MILLION FINANCING WITH A LEAD ORDER FROM PALISADES GOLDCORP
VANCOUVER, CANADA – March 5, 2021: Sitka Gold Corp. (“Sitka” or the “Company”) (CSE:SIG) (FSE:1RF) (OTCQB: SITKF) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement for total gross proceeds of $6,377,065.62 through the issuance of 21,243,684 flow-through units at a price of $0.135 per flow-through unit and 29,243,069 non flow-through units at a price of $0.12 per non flow-through unit. Each flow-through unit is comprised of a common share of Sitka and a half warrant. Each non flow-through unit is comprised of a common share of Sitka and a full warrant. Each full warrant will entitle the holder to purchase an additional common share at a price of $0.18 for a period of 36 months from the date of closing of the private placement. Palisades Goldcorp Ltd. was the lead order in the private placement.
The financing, originally announced on February 12, 2021, was significantly oversubscribed. Sitka engaged Canaccord Genuity Corp. to act as its financial advisor for the offering. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Private Placement for exploration work on its Arizona, Nevada and Yukon gold properties and for general working capital.
“With the closing of this financing, Sitka is heading into the 2021 exploration season with a strong treasury that will enable us to materially advance our portfolio of properties,” commented Cor Coe, CEO and director of Sitka. “We are pleased to welcome new institutional shareholders to Sitka and would like to thank everyone who participated in the financing. We are looking forward to a very active year as we push to unlock value from our assets.”
In connection with the private placement, the Company has paid commissions totalling $86,816.86 and issued 710,210 finder’s warrants. Each finder’s warrant is exercisable to acquire one common share of the company at exercise price of $0.18 for 36 months from the date of closing of the private placement. The Company also issued 458,333 shares as a commission on a portion of the proceeds of the financing.
Officers and directors of the Company subscribed for a total of 1,220,000 flow-through units of the private placement. Participation of officers and directors of Sitka in the private placement is considered a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”). The transactions are exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the securities to be distributed in the Private Placement nor the consideration to be received for those securities, in so far as the Private Placement involves the Insiders, exceeds 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
