Wolfden Announces Closing Of $350,000 Non-Brokered Flow-Through Private Placement and Updates Exploration Activities
Wolfden Resources Corp. (TSX.V: WLF) ("Wolfden" or the "Company") announces it has completed a previously announced non-brokered private placement (the "Offering") of 3,500,000 flow-through units (the "Flow-Through Units") at a price of $0.10 per Flow-Through Unit for gross proceeds of $350,000. Each Flow-Through Unit consists of one common share of the Company that is a "flow-through share" within the meaning in the Income Tax Act (Canada) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant a "Warrant"). Each such Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.15 per common share until December 15, 2018.
In connection with the Offering, the Company has paid an aggregate of $5,000 in finder's fees to arm's length parties.
Securities issued under the Offering (including the underlying common shares) are subject to a four-month hold period, which will expire on April 16, 2017.
The Offering is subject to final acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.
The proceeds of the Offering are intended to be used for ongoing exploration on the Company's Rice Island nickel-copper-cobalt property in Manitoba and for potential work at the Company's Tetagouche Property in New Brunswick.
In other developments, the Company has commenced ground geophysical surveys (fixed-loop EM) on its recently consolidated Rice Island property. The consolidated property comprising 2,600 hectares, includes the Rice Island Property (the "RIP") and the Rice Island Tie-On Property (the "RITOP"). The survey is intended to help refine drill targets testing for the southwest extension of the Rice Island nickel-copper-cobalt deposit on the RITOP. The prominent magnetic anomaly and associated conductors associated with the Rice Island deposit continue for an additional 800 metres to the southwest, on the RITOP (see Figure 1). Wolfden's recent drilling on the claim boundary between the RIP and RITOP, included intercepts returning 2.57% Ni, 1.07% Cu and 0.08% Co over 17.4 metres as well as 1.14% Ni, 0.70% Cu and 0.06% Co over 14.1 metres.
The geophysical survey is planned to be completed prior to year-end in preparation for a winter drilling program, anticipated to occur in late January of 2017.
