Sandy Lake Gold Inc. Announces Private Placement Financing
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 30, 2017 (Toronto, Ontario): Sandy Lake Gold Inc. (“Sandy Lake” or the “Company”) (TSXV:SLAU) announces a non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) pursuant to which it will issue up to (i) 2,000,000 units (“Units”); and (ii) 5,000,000 special warrants (“Special Warrants”), each at a price of $0.05 to raise aggregate gross proceeds of up to $350,000.
Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (a “Share”) and one share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”), with each Warrant entitling the holder thereof to acquire one additional Share at an exercise price of $0.10 for a period of 24 months.
Mr. Patrick Sheridan has indicated that he will purchase 5,000,000 Special Warrants in the Offering. Each Special Warrant will automatically convert into one Unit without any additional payment or action by the holder on the date upon which the Company receives shareholder approval for Mr. Sheridan and his associates to become “control persons” of the Company (within the meaning of the regulations of the TSX Venture Exchange). The Company proposes to seek such shareholder approval at its next annual meeting of shareholders, by ordinary resolution of the disinterested shareholders. In the event that such shareholder approval is not approved at the Company’s next annual shareholders meeting, the Special Warrants shall automatically convert into a loan repayable to Mr. Sheridan on demand, bearing interest at a rate of 8% per annum.
All proceeds from the sale of both Units and Special Warrants pursuant to the Offering shall be immediately available to the Company.
Other insiders of the Company may also subscribe for up to 500,000 Units in the Offering.
The Offering is currently scheduled to close on or about November 10, 2017 and remains subject to the receipt of all applicable regulatory approvals.
