Geomega Resources (CVE:GMA) said Friday it has entered into a deal with Industrial Alliance Securities for a brokered $5 million private placement financing.
The offering, which is on a best efforts basis, consists of 2.87
million units priced at 70 cents each, as well as three million
flow-through shares at $1 each.
Each unit is made up of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant, the company said.
Each warrant gives the holder the right to subscribe for an extra
common share priced at $1.25 for a timeframe of 18 months, after the
closing of the offering.
Upon the offering's closing, a cash commission equal to 6.5 percent of the gross proceeds raised will be paid.
Geomega said it will use the new funds to finance the development of
Montviel through a preliminary economic assessment, as well as for
exploration on its graphite properties.
The brokered placement is slated to close on March 23, subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals.
