Bonterra Announces Upsize of Private Placement Offering of Flow-Through Common Shares to $13 Million and $2 Million Private Placement

Mar 17, 2021

Bonterra Resources is pleased to announce that, in connection with its previously announced “best efforts” private placement financing, the Company and a syndicate of agents led by Cormark Securities Inc. (collectively, the “Agents”), have agreed to increase the size of the offering.  Under the revised terms of the offering, the Company has agreed to issue 9,030,000 common shares of the Company on a flow-through basis (the “FT Shares”) for gross proceeds of $13,003,200 at a price of $1.44 per FT Share and 2,000,000 common shares of the Company (the “Common Shares”) for gross proceeds of $2,100,000 at a price of $1.05 per Common Share (the “Offering”).
The Company and the Agents have also agreed to increase the option granted to the Agents (the “Agents’ Option”), exercisable in whole or in part at any time up to 48 hours prior to closing of the Offering, which will allow the Agents to sell up to an additional 1,390,000 FT Shares and up to an additional 350,000 Common Shares, in each case, on the same terms as the Offering.
The gross proceeds from the issuance of the FT Shares will be used for Canadian exploration expenses and will qualify as “flow-through mining expenditures”, as defined in subsection 127(9) of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the “Qualifying Expenditures”), which will be incurred on or before December 31, 2022 and renounced to the subscribers with an effective date no later than December 31, 2021 in an aggregate amount not less than the gross proceeds raised from the issue of the Offered Securities, as applicable, and, if the Qualifying Expenditures are reduced by the Canada Revenue Agency, the Company will indemnify each FT Share subscriber for any additional taxes payable by such subscriber as a result of the Company’s failure to renounce the Qualifying Expenditures as agreed.
The net proceeds from the issuance of the Common Shares will be used for working capital and general corporate purposes.
The Offering is expected to close on or about April 7, 2021 and is subject to certain closing conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Offering is being made by way of private placement in Canada.  The securities issued under the Offering will be subject to a hold period in Canada expiring four months and one day from the closing date of the Offering.
