NEVADA KING (NKG.V): ANNOUNCES TERMS OF FULLY SUBSCRIBED $4,500,000 FINANCING WITH LEAD ORDER FROM COLLIN KETTELL
VANCOUVER, BC, May 18, 2022 /CNW/ – Nevada King Gold Corp. (TSXV: NKG) (OTCQX: NKGFF) (“Nevada King” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it is proceeding with a non-brokered private placement financing (the “Private Placement“) through the issuance of 10,000,000 common shares (the “Shares“) of the Company at a price of $0.45 per Share for aggregate gross proceeds of $4,500,000. The Private Placement is fully allocated and is expected to close on or before June 10, 2022.
- Company Founder & Chief Executive Officer Collin Kettell is subscribing for $2,250,000 of the Private Placement, which will increase his ownership in the Company to 15.5% post-financing. The remainder of the proposed private placement is being subscribed for by a group of existing shareholders and strategic, high net worth investors.
- Upon completion of the Private Placement, Nevada King will have working capital in excess of $27-million to support drilling of multiple targets on its properties along the Battle Mountain Trend, including follow up drilling at the Atlanta Mine and at the Lewis, and Iron Point project areas.
Collin Kettell, Chief Executive Officer of Nevada King, stated: “Exploration is a high-risk, high-reward business and access to capital is a prerequisite to a successful outcome. We are extremely fortunate to have a supportive group of stakeholders that share in management’s vision of unlocking value along the Battle Mountain Trend.”
Closing of the Private Placement is subject to customary conditions, including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, inclusive of the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The Shares issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to a statutory hold period expiring four months and one day from from the date of issuance of such securities. The proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to advance Nevada King’s development and exploration stage assets and for other general corporate purposes.
The majority of the Private Placement is expected to be raised from existing shareholders and current directors, executive officers, business associates and employees, some of whom are insiders of the Company. Any participation by insiders in the Private Placement would constitute a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“). However, the Company expects that the Private Placement will be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the Shares subscribed for by the insiders, nor the consideration for the Shares paid by such insiders, will exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization. A material change report in connection with the Private Placement is expected to be filed less than 21 days before the closing of the Private Placement. This shorter period is reasonable and necessary in the circumstance as the Company wishes to complete the Private Placement in a timely manner.
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 news 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.
Nevada King is the third largest mineral claim holder in the State of Nevada, behind Nevada Gold Mines (Barrick/Newmont) and Kinross Gold. Starting in 2016 through to the present day the Company has staked large project areas hosting significant historical exploration work along the Battle Mountain trend located close to current or former producing gold mines. These project areas were initially targeted based on their potential for hosting multi-million ounce gold deposits and were subsequently staked following a detailed geological evaluation. District-scale projects in Nevada King’s portfolio include (1) the 100% owned Atlanta Mine, located 100km southeast of Ely, (2) the Lewis and Horse Mountain-Mill Creek projects, both located between Nevada Gold Mines’ large Phoenix and Pipeline mines, and (3) the Iron Point project, located 35km east of Winnemucca, Nevada.
The Atlanta Mine is a historical gold-silver producer with a National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101“) compliant pit-constrained resource of 460,000 oz Au in the measured and indicated category (11.0M tonnes at 1.3 g/t) plus an inferred resource of 142,000 oz Au (5.3M tonnes at 0.83 g/t).
