THIS NEWS RELEASE IS NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sanatana Resources Inc. ("Sanatana" or the "Company") (TSX-V:STA) is pleased to provide this exploration update to its shareholders and announce a private placement.
Sanatana's exploration team has been onsite at the Jackfish Property preparing for the upcoming drill program as mentioned in the Company's news release of March 15, 2018. The Company expects to commence drilling shortly as severe winter conditions subside. A copy of the drill plan will be posted shortly to Sanatana's website.
Peter Miles, President & CEO, states "We are pleased to be in the final stages of preparation for the first drill program on the Jackfish Property targeting our significant copper in soil anomaly and look forward to a busy exploration season."
On April 12, 2018 the Company received TSX Venture Exchange (“TSX-V”) approval for its purchase of the Santoy Property. As described in the Company's news release of January 11, 2018, the Santoy Property consists of three mining claims that tie onto the Jackfish Property covering the southeast extension of the North-Hematite-Cliff gold mineralized trend. There is also a strongly conductive unit in the greenstone belt sequence delineated in the publicly available Ontario Geological Survey airborne geophysical survey data and relates directly to a historic nickel-copper showing. Elevated copper, lead and silver values and a 5,000 ppm cobalt assay result in soil sample data reviewed from previous assessment reports may also be related to this conductive unit and will be followed up with exploration this summer.
The Company has arranged a non-brokered private placement of 6,000,000 flow-through shares (the "FT Shares") at $0.05 per FT Share for gross proceeds of up to $300,000 (the "Offering"). Each FT Share of the Company will be a "flow-through share" within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (a "FT Share"). In connection with the Offering, the Company may pay finder's fees to certain arm's length parties in accordance with the rules of the TSX-V in consideration for their efforts in introducing subscribers to the Company.
Closing is subject to a number of prescribed conditions, including, without limitations, approval of the TSX-V. The securities to be issued under the Offering will be offered by way of private placement in the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario and such other provinces or territories of Canada as may be determined by the Company, in each case, pursuant to applicable exemptions from the prospectus requirements under applicable securities laws. Securities issued under the Offering will be subject to a four-month hold period which will expire four months and one day from the date of closing of the Offering.
The proceeds from the Offering will be used for exploration on the Company's Jackfish Property. For details on the Company's Jackfish Property and the terms governing the option earn-in, see Sanatana's news release dated February 7, 2017.
