Eagle Plains Arranges $315,000 Bought-Deal Financing
Cranbrook, BC; August 8th, 2019: Eagle Plains Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:EPL),(the ”Company”) announces that the Company intends to complete a non-brokered private placement to an arms-length institutional investor. Application will be filed with the TSX Venture Exchange (TSX-V) to sell 3,000,000 non-flow-through common shares at a price of $.105 CDN per share for gross proceeds of $315,000. The financing is expected to close by mid-August. No warrants, finder’s fees or commissions will be paid in association with the financing. Directors of the Company have approved an overallotment of up to 10% for shares offered in the financing.
Shares will be purchased by Zeta Resources Ltd. (“Zeta”), a closed-end investment company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (“ASX”). Zeta is related to ICM Limited, a global asset management group with over $US 19B in assets.
Tristan Kingcott, Director of ICM’s Canadian subsidiary stated: “The investment aim of Zeta Resources is to maximise total returns for their shareholders by identifying and investing in resource assets and companies where the underlying value is not reflected in the market price. We believe Eagle Plains is a good example of such an undervaluation, and we are pleased to be new shareholders in the company.”
Tim Termuende, President and CEO of Eagle Plains stated recently: “We are happy to welcome Zeta and ICM as significant shareholders of Eagle Plains. We are proud of the confidence that Zeta has placed in both our project portfolio and management team and look forward to building a strong relationship while we continue to explore mining and mineral resource opportunities as we enter an emerging bull market in commodities”.
Proceeds from the sale of the shares will be used to fund research, acquisition and exploration of the company's various exploration projects in British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Yukon and for general working capital.
