EGR Exploration Ltd. (TSX-V:EGR) (“EGR” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement of up to 15 million units (“Units”) of the Company at a price of C$0.06 per Unit for gross proceeds to the Company of up to $900,000 (the “Offering”).
Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one non-transferable common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each full Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share of the Company (a “Warrant Share”) at an exercise price of $0.12 per Warrant Share for a period of three years from the closing of the Offering. The Company may elect to accelerate the expiry of the Warrants in the event the closing price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) equals or exceeds $0.24 per Common Share for thirty (30) consecutive trading days, in which case the Warrants will expire 30 days after the date on which the Company provides written notice of acceleration.
The proceeds from this private placement will be used to fund various activities of EGR, including exploration planning, project acquisition generation, investor relation programs and corporate working capital.
Daniel Rodriguez, CEO and Director of EGR, noted, “This is our final step before entirely focusing our team on the exploration program at our flagship asset, the Detour West gold project. The funds will be used for exploration planning and working capital in 2023.
We are also grateful for the continued support from our shareholders who will participate in the private placement. All continued support we have received gives us confidence that we are moving in the right direction.”
In addition to other prospectus exemptions commonly relied on in private placements, the Offering will be made available to existing shareholders of the Company who, as of the close of business November 30, 2022, held common shares of the Company (and who continue to hold such common shares as of the closing date), pursuant to the prospectus exemption set out in British Columbia Instrument 45-534 — Exemption From Prospectus Requirement for Certain Trades to Existing Security Holders (the “Existing Security Holder Exemption”).

If the Company receives subscriptions from investors relying on the Existing Security Holder Exemption exceeding the maximum amount of the Offering, the Company intends to adjust the subscriptions received on a pro-rata basis. Existing shareholders that wish to participate in the Offering should contact the Company at (email@example.com) or the contact information on the website or written below.
