VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Aintree Resources Inc. (TSX-Venture:AIN.H) (the “Company” or “Aintree”), a Capital Pool Company (“CPC”) listed on the NEX board of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”), is pleased to announce the filing of a filing statement (the “Filing Statement”) to use the Tonopah Project as its listing property for a CPC qualifying transaction (“QT”). The Filing Statement dated August 24, 2017 was filed under the Company’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
Aintree was notified by a letter dated August 9, 2017 from the TSXV that the Company’s proposed QT involving the Tonopah Property had been conditionally accepted by the TSXV. Completion of the QT approval process is subject to a number of conditions, principal among these conditions is the filing of a final Filing Statement and the completion of a concurrent financing to raise a minimum gross proceed of $1,000,000. Final acceptance of the QT by the TSXV will allow the Company to be classified as a Tier 2 Mining Issuer on the TSXV.
Private Placement Financing
As part of its CPC QT Aintree intends to complete a non-brokered private placement of up to 4,800,000 units in the capital of the Company (the “Units”) at a price of $0.25 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $1,200,000 (the “Offering”). The terms of this financing, which was first announced in Aintree’s June 5, 2017 press release, has now been amended to include a share purchase warrant as of the date of the Filing Statement. Each Unit in the Offering will include one common share in the capital of the Company (the “Share”) plus one share purchase warrant exercisable into a Share at $0.35 per Share for a period of two years from the closing of the Offering. Finder’s fees, if applicable, will be payable in accordance with TSXV policies.
Closing of the Offering is subject to receipt of all necessary corporate and regulatory approvals, including the TSXV’s final acceptance of the Aintree CPC QT. All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a hold period of four months plus a day from the date of issuance. The proceeds of the Offering will be used to settle Company debts and ordinary course payables, fund bonding obligations, consulting fees and expenditures, including additional technical study and drilling, arising in connection with the Tonopah Project, and for general working capital purposes.
