Nick Appleyard, TriStar’s President and CEO commented: “We are very happy to welcome two new institutional shareholders and thankful for the confidence that our existing shareholder base is showing in us. We currently have one reverse circulation drill rig on site and the first batch of samples is at the lab, and now with this closing we anticipate mobilizing a second RC rig and a core rig to Castelo de Sonhos to work towards expanding the resource on which the preliminary economic assessment will be based later this year.”
Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of TriStar Gold and one-half of a common share purchase warrant, with each whole common share purchase warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company at an exercise price of C$0.45 until April 28, 2019.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Financing for drilling and studies to advance the Company’s Castelo de Sonhos in Pará State, Brazil and for general working capital purposes.
