QUESNEL, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - June 13, 2016) - Prosper Gold Corp. ("Prosper Gold" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:PGX) announces a non-brokered private placement financing of up to $2,000,000 (the "Private Placement"), through the issuance of up to 2,000,000 units of the Company (the "Units") at a price of $0.25 per Unit and up to 5,000,000 flow-through units (the "Flow-Through Units") at an issue price of $0.30 per Flow-Through Unit.
Each Unit will consist of one common share and one transferable common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant") with each Warrant exercisable by the holder into one common share of the Company at a price of $0.35 per share for a period of 36 months from the closing date. In the event that Prosper Gold's common shares trade at a closing price on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX-V") of greater than $0.60 per common share for a period of 20 consecutive trading days at any time after the closing date of the Private Placement, Prosper may accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants by giving notice to the holders thereof and in such case the Warrants will expire on the 30th day after the date on which such notice is given by Prosper Gold (the "Acceleration Trigger").
Each Flow-Through Unit will consist of one common share of the Company that qualifies as a "flow-through share" for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (a "FT Share") and one-half of one non-transferable non-flow through common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "NFT Warrant"). Each NFT Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one additional common share of the Company (a "NFT Warrant Share") at an exercise price of $0.45 per NFT Warrant Share for a period of 36 months from the Closing Date. The NFT Warrant terms will contain the same Acceleration Trigger provision as described above.
The Private Placement will be non-brokered; however, the Company may pay finder's fees in accordance in the rules and policies of the TSX-V. The financing is subject to the approval of the TSX-V.
All securities issued pursuant to this Private Placement will be subject to a four month and one day hold period in accordance with applicable securities laws. The closing date for the Private Placement is expected to occur in June 2016 or such other date as the Company may determine. The net proceeds from the non-flow-through portion of the Private Placement will be used to fund exploration activities for 2016 and for working capital and general corporate purposes. The gross proceeds from the flow-through portion of the Private Placement will be used to fund exploration activities for 2016.
