VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 31, 2020 -- FIREWEED ZINC LTD. (“Fireweed” or the “Company” or the “Issuer”) (TSXV: FWZ) announces a non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) for gross proceeds of up to CAD$700,000, being led by certain large shareholders of the Company.
Fireweed CEO, Brandon Macdonald, stated, “I want to thank our major shareholders who stepped up with their financial support to help the Company weather these unprecedented difficult times. It is an indication of their strong belief in our people and in our Macmillan Pass Project which is one of the largest undeveloped zinc projects in the world. In the near term the Company will be working on reduced budgets but with the extra time to interpret data and prepare for the next exploration and drill programs, we will be in a better position to aggressively advance the project when financing markets improve.”
The Offering will consist of a total of up to 2,333,333 common shares of the Company at a price of CAD$0.30 per share (“Common Shares”) with a full four-year warrant (“Warrants”) exercisable at $0.60 per share but subject to accelerated expiry terms if the Company’s shares trade at or above $1.00 per share for 20 consecutive days.
The proceeds from the Offering will be used for work related to the Company’s Macmillan Pass Project in Yukon, Canada, and for general working capital purposes.
Closing of the Offering is subject to certain customary conditions, including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals and acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Common Shares and Warrants issued under the Offering will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus a day following the date of closing.
