Jul 23, 2020

Cartier Resources Inc. has entered into an agreement with Paradigm Capital Inc. for a private placement of up to 11,628,000 common shares. They will qualify as "flow-through shares" to be issued at C$0.43 per FT Share for gross proceeds of up to C$5,000,040.

In addition, the agent has been granted an option to sell up to that number of additional FT Shares for additional gross proceeds of up to C$750,006.

Pursuant to the Investor Rights Agreement between Cartier and Agnico Eagle Mines Limited, Agnico Eagle has the right to participate in the Offering to maintain its pro-rata 16.6% interest in Cartier.

The gross proceeds from the Offering will be used by the Company to incur eligible "Canadian exploration expenses" that will qualify as "flow-through mining expenditures" as such terms are defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the "Qualifying Expenditures") related to the Company's project in Quebec. All Qualifying Expenditures will be renounced in favour of the subscribers of the FT Shares effective December 31, 2020. 

The Offering is expected to close on or about August 11, 2020 (the “Closing Date”) and is subject to certain closing conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals including the conditional listing approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and the applicable securities regulatory authorities. 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. The Offering is subject to final acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The securities offered have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any State in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

About Cartier

Cartier Resources Inc. was founded in 2006 and is based out of Val-d’Or, Quebec.  Quebec has consistently ranked high as one of the best mining jurisdictions in the world primarily based on its mineral rich geology, attractive tax environment, and pro-mining government.  In 2020, the Fraser Institute again ranked Quebec as one of the best jurisdictions in the world for investment attractiveness.

  • The Corporation has a strong cash position with over $5.4 million in the bank and important corporate and institutional investors including Agnico Eagle Mines and the Quebec investment funds.
  • Cartier’s strategy is to focus on gold projects that have an exploration potential for rapid expansion.
  • The Corporation holds a portfolio of exploration projects in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt in Quebec – one of the most prolific mining regions in the world – the commodity focus is gold.
  • The Corporation is focused on advancing its four key projects through drill programs.  All of these projects were acquired at very reasonable valuations over the past few years.  All of them are drill-ready with targets identified similar to the deposits that have been outlined on each project.
