Toronto, Ontario, November 30, 2017 – Purepoint Uranium Group Inc. (TSXV: PTU) (the “Company”) announced its intention to raise the ceiling for the previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) from $850,000 to $1,200,000. Up to 12,000,000 flow-through units (the “Flow-Through Units”) at a price of $0.10 per unit are issuable pursuant to the Private Placement. Each Flow-Through Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company to be issued on a “flow through” basis pursuant to the Income Tax Act (Canada) and one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant entitles its holder to purchase one common share in the capital of the Company at an exercise price of $0.15 per share for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance.
“We are very encouraged by the strong response to this financing and we are scheduled to close the remainder of the private placement in the coming week,” said Chris Frostad, President & CEO of Purepoint. “With the restart of the 2017 drilling program at Hook Lake and the budget secured for the 2018 exploration program, we look forward to advancing more high-priority targets along the Patterson Uranium District.”
The Company also announced the second tranche closing of the Private Placement for gross proceeds of $20,000. In connection with the second tranche closing, the Company issued 200,000 Flow-Through Units at a price of $0.10 per unit and paid a finder’s fee consisting of $1,200 in cash and issued 12,000 non-transferrable compensation warrants. Each compensation warrant entitles its holder to purchase one common share in the capital of the Company at an exercise price of $0.15 per share for a period of 24 months after the date of issuance. The closing is subject to final acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange of the Private Placement.
The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to advance the Company’s Hook Lake exploration program in Saskatchewan. All securities issued in connection with the second tranche closing of the Private Placement are subject to a four-month hold period pursuant to the applicable securities laws.
