Scottsdale, Arizona--(Newsfile Corp. - July 14, 2020) - TriStar Gold Inc. (TSXV: TSG) (OTCQB: TSGZF) ("TriStar" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed its bought deal financing, originally announced on June 22, 2020. A total of 30,705,000 units of the Company were sold under the offering, at a price of $0.30 per unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $9,211,500, which includes the units issued pursuant to the over-allotment option granted to the underwriters that was exercised in full. Each unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company and one‐half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to acquire an additional common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.40 until July 14, 2022.
"This financing gives us the working capital we need to accelerate our exploration efforts in parallel with completing our fully funded prefeasibility study (scheduled for completion early next year)," says Nick Appleyard, TriStar's President and CEO. "Over the last few months, our team working with GoldSpot Discoveries, have been refining multiple exploration targets, that we will be ready to drill in the third quarter of this year."
The offering was underwritten by Cormark Securities Inc., as lead underwriter, on behalf of a syndicate of underwriters, including Red Cloud Securities Inc. and Canaccord Genuity Corp. As consideration for their services, the underwriters received a cash commission equal to 6% of the gross proceeds of the offering (other than from the issue and sale of the units to certain purchasers on a president's list, for which a 3% cash commission was paid).
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the offering to further advance its Castelo de Sonhos gold project and for general working corporate purposes.
The units were offered and sold by way of short form prospectus dated July 6, 2020 filed in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Nova Scotia, pursuant to National Instrument 44‐101 - Short Form Prospectus Distributions.
