St. John’s, NL, December 16, 2020 - Sokoman Minerals Corp. (‘Sokoman’ or ‘the Company’) (TSX.V: SIC) (OTCQB: SICNF) today announces that it has received approval from the TSX Venture Exchange to close its non-brokered private placement of flow-through shares (the “Private Placement”) announced on December 2, 2020.
The Company will issue 15,000,000 flow-through shares at a price of $0.20 per flow-through share for aggregate gross proceeds of $3,000,000. The flow-through shares will entitle the holder to receive the tax benefits applicable to flow-through shares, in accordance with provisions of the Income Tax Act (Canada).
In connection with the private placement, the Company will pay $164,397 in finders’ fees and will issue 764,550 broker warrants exercisable at $0.20 for 12 months from the date of issue, as permitted by the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. All securities issued pursuant to the private placement will be subject to a four-month hold period.
Sokoman would like to thank all the participants and interested parties for the overwhelming support in this Private Placement. The proceeds of the financing will be directed towards advancing the Company’s flagship Moosehead Gold Project. Sokoman is continuing with its Phase 6 drill program at Moosehead and after taking a break for Christmas holidays, it will resume drilling in early 2021 with multiple high-priority targets yet to be tested. With the necessary funds in place, the Company plans on expanding the program beyond initially announced 10,000 m.
