Stuve Gold Corp Announces Private Placement Closing
Calgary, Alberta - TheNewswire - August 9, 2021 - Stuve Gold Corp. (the “Corporation” or “Stuve Gold”) (TSXV:STUV) is pleased to announce the closing of its recently announced private placement (see Stuve Gold press releases dated April 22, 2021 and June 9, 2021).
The private placement involved the sale of 1,750,000 units of the Corporation (each, a “Unit”) at a price of $0.20 per Unit for gross and net proceeds to the Corporation of $350,000. Each Unit was comprised of one common share and one common share purchase warrant (“Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire a common share of the Corporation for a price of $0.35 until August 6, 2023.
Proceeds from the private placement will be used to fund the initial drilling program of Stuve Gold’s Coba SW project.
The private placement remains subject to final acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange. The securities issued are subject to a four month and one day hold period.
Related Party Participation in the Private Placement
An insider subscribed for 125,000 Units for a total of 7.1% of the private placement. As an insider of the Corporation participated in this private placement, it is deemed to be a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101-Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”).
Neither the Corporation, nor to the knowledge of the Corporation after reasonable inquiry, a related party, has knowledge of any material information concerning the Corporation or its securities that has not been generally disclosed.
The private placement is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 (pursuant to subsections 5.5(c) and 5.7(1)(b)) as it was a distribution of securities for cash and neither the fair market value of the Units distributed to, nor the consideration received from, interested parties exceeded $2,500,000.
The Corporation did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the private placement because the details of the participation therein by related parties of the Corporation were not settled until shortly prior to closing of the private placement and the Corporation wished to close on an expedited basis for business reasons.
