Vancouver, BC, Canada
Patriot Battery Metals Inc. (the “Company” or “Patriot”) (TSXV: PMET) (OTCQB: PMETF) (FSE: R9GA) is pleased to announce that it has completed a private placement of 1,507,170 charity flow-through common shares (the “FT Shares”) at a price of $13.27 per FT Share for aggregate gross proceeds of $20,000,145.90 (the “Offering”). The FT Shares are subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance.
Blair Way, President and CEO, comments: “I am very pleased to be completing this significant financing for the Company at such a great premium. Our war chest is topped up again and we are fully funded to undertake our winter and spring drill program for the Corvette project. We will continue to drill out the CV5 corridor and explore the other lithium pegmatite outcrop clusters identified on the property.”
The gross proceeds received by the Company from the sale of the FT Shares will be used to incur Canadian exploration expenses (CEE) that are flow-through mining expenditures (as such terms are defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada)) and that qualify for the federal 30% Critical Mineral Exploration Tax Credit announced in the federal budget on April 7, 2022. The Company will renounce such expenditures to the subscribers effective December 31, 2022.
In connection with the Offering the Company paid fees commensurate with such a raising, including 6% fees in cash and 6% in broker warrants on a portion of the financing. Therefore, the Company paid a commission of (i) CAD $454,216.77; and (ii) 71,530 broker warrants, each such warrant entitling the holder to obtain one common share of the Company at a price of $6.35 per Broker Warrant (the deemed issue price), for a period of 24 months from the closing of the Offering.
