Toronto, Ontario, Canada, December 13, 2021 – Royal Fox Gold Inc. (“Royal Fox” or the “Company”) (TSXV: FOXG) is pleased to announce, that further to its press release of November 30, 2021, the Company has closed a non-brokered private placement through the issuance of 28,300,000 charity flow-through units (each, a “FT Unit”) at a price of $0.10 per FT Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $2,830,000 (the “Offering”).
The FT Units are being issued pursuant to a charity arrangement structured by Peartree Securities Inc. As a result of this arrangement, the entirety of the shares issued from the private placement were acquired by only two shareholders, each now owning 9.9% of the total shares outstanding of Royal Fox on a partial dilution basis.
Each FT Unit shall be comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company, issued on a flow-through basis (each, a “FT Share”) and one-half of one whole common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”), issued on a non-flow-through basis. Each Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to acquire one common share (each, a “Common Share”) in the capital of the Company at a price of $0.08 per Common Share for a period of three (3) years from date of issuance. The FT Shares will qualify as “flow-through shares” within the meaning of subsection 66(15) of the Income Tax Act (Canada).
All securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a hold period of four months plus a day from the date of issuance and the resale rules of applicable securities legislation. The gross proceeds from the sale of the FT Units will be used by the Company to incur eligible “Canadian exploration expenses” that will qualify as “flow-through expenditures” as such terms are defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada).
The closing of the Offering is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory and other approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. In connection with the Offering, the Company paid a cash commission of $20,000 to an eligible finder for services rendered.
This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to sell any of the securities in the United States. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”) or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to U.S. Persons unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.
