Vancouver, British Columbia / May 25, 2021 – American Pacific Mining Corp. (CSE: USGD / FWB: 1QC / OTCQB: USGDF) (“American Pacific” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it intends to complete a private placement (the “Private Placement”) of up to 8,181,964 units (the “Units”) at a price of CAD$0.125 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $1,022,746 with a strategic investor, Michael Gentile, CFA.
American Pacific CEO, Warwick Smith, commented: “We are very pleased to welcome Michael Gentile as a strategic investor as exploration and drilling ramps up at our Madison Project and we advance our other high-grade precious metals exploration projects in Nevada during the second half of the year.”
Michael Gentile, CFA, added: “The past producing Madison mine has tremendous unrecognized high-grade copper and gold potential as demonstrated by the recent high-grade results such as * 61.63 meters of 6.97% Cu and 30 meters of 24.5 g/t Au. With Kennecott, a division of Rio Tinto, fully funding an expanded exploration program for 2021 the significant potential of the Madison Project should become much more clear to investors. This cornerstone joint venture will allow American Pacific to move the project forward without any further dilution to its shareholders benefiting from up to an additional 25mm USD of spending by Kennecott over the remaining term of the joint venture agreement. While Madison alone should drive significant value over the coming years the additional 100 percent owned Nevada assets and growth-focused management team make American Pacific a very attractive company at a very modest current valuation.”
On closing of the Private Placement and on a partially-diluted basis (i.e., assuming full exercise of all common share purchase warrants (the “Warrants”), and no other issuances of common shares (the “Shares”) by the Company), Mr. Gentile will own 19.99% of the Company’s issued and outstanding Shares.
Each Unit will be comprised of one Share and one Warrant with each Warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional Share of the Company at a price of $0.16 per Share for a period of two years.
All securities issued will be subject to a four month hold period pursuant to securities laws in Canada.
The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Private Placement for exploration of the Company’s portfolio of resource properties and for general working capital.
