American Pacific Closes $4,500,000 Non-Brokered Private Placement

April 16, 2024

Vancouver, British Columbia / April 16, 2024 – American Pacific Mining Corp (CSE: USGD / OTCQX: USGDF / FWB: 1QC) (“American Pacific” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce the closing of its non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) raising gross proceeds of $4,500,000 through the issuance of 22,500,000 units (the “Units”) at a price of $0.20 per Unit.

Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Share”) and one-half of one transferable Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional Share at an exercise price of $0.30 until April 16, 2026. 

The Company paid aggregate finder’s fees of $191,450 in cash and issued 957,250 finder’s warrants (the “Finder’s Warrants”) to Eventus Capital Corp., Canaccord Genuity Corp., Echelon Wealth Partners Inc., and Haywood Securities Inc.  The Finder’s Warrants are non-transferable, exercisable at $0.30 per Share until the Expiry Date and are subject to the 4 month hold period as required by Canadian securities laws.

The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Private Placement for exploration and development of its Madison Copper-Gold Project in Montana, Palmer VMS Project in Alaska, and other Western US precious and base metals projects, and for general working capital.

“Closing this round of funding puts us in a strong position to advance the high grade copper-gold Madison project and the Palmer VMS asset. We are excited for a very busy field season ahead” states American Pacific CEO, Warwick Smith.

The Private Placement was conducted under (i) the listed issuer financing exemption as per Part 5A of National Instrument 45-106 – Prospectus Exemptions to qualified investors in Canada, and (ii) otherwise in those jurisdictions where the Private Placement can lawfully be made including the United States under applicable private placement exemptions. As a result, the securities issued are not subject to a hold period under the prevailing Canadian securities laws.  The securities issued to investors located in the United States are subject to resale restrictions in the United States.

In connection with the Private Placement, the Company filed an Offering Document dated April 2, 2024, as amended and restated on April 3, 2024 and April 10, 2024, which is available on the Company’s SEDAR+ profile at www.sedarplus.ca and on www.americanpacificmining.com.

Directors of the Company purchased an aggregate of 150,000 Units in the Private Placement for gross proceeds of $30,000. The participation by such insiders in the Private Placement each constitute a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The related party transactions are exempt from minority approval, information circular and formal valuation requirements pursuant to the exemptions contained in Sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1) of MI 61-101, as neither the fair market value of the gross securities issued under the Private Placement, nor the consideration paid by the insiders, exceeded 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.

The securities referred to in this news release have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”), and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons in the absence of U.S. registration or an applicable exemption from the U.S. registration requirements.
