INCA ONE GOLD COMPLETES POWER LINE CONSTRUCTION AND CLOSES SECOND TRANCHE OF PRIVATE PLACEMENT
VANCOUVER, BC – July 7, 2017 – INCA ONE GOLD CORP. (TSXV: IO, Frankfurt: SU9.F, SSEV: IOCL) (“Inca One” or the “Company”) reports that it has received verification from its wholly owned subsidiary Chala One, that construction of its new industrial power line has been completed. Initial tests and inspections by SEAL, the regional power supplier for the power line have also been completed successfully. Chala One anticipates connection to the Peruvian national power grid imminently.
Since purchasing the original processing plant in 2013, Chala One had to rely on diesel fuel for power generation. It was not until Chala One had attained its final beneficial operating permit in January 2017 to become a fully formalized company that its application for the necessary permits connecting the plant to the national power grid could be approved.
Construction of the 2 km power line at Chala One began in March 2017 and is now complete, on time and on budget. Chala One estimates a 70% energy cost reduction as the plant shifts from diesel to electric power.
“We identified opportunities early on to reduce costs at our commercial operations,” stated Inca One President and CEO, Edward Kelly. “But executing these changes required a beneficial permit. Energy savings is a necessary component of profitability. The installation of this power line and connection to the power grid will have a positive impact on our bottom line in the coming quarter.”
The Company also announces that it has closed the second tranche of its previously announced (June 9, 2017) non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) for gross proceeds of CAD$196,800 by the issuance of 1,968,000 units (the “Units”) at a subscription price of CAD$0.10 per Unit.
Together with the first tranche closing previously announced on June 12, 2017, the Company has raised in aggregate gross proceeds of CAD$1,296,800 of the previously announced CAD$1,500,000 Private Placement. The Company intends to close the final tranche of the Private Placement shortly.
For terms and further details of the Private Placement please view Inca One’s news releases dated June 9, 2017 or June 12, 2017.
