CALGARY, AB / ACCESSWIRE / November 17, 2020 / Kestrel Gold Inc. (the 'Corporation') (TSXV:KGC) announces that it has closed its private placement (the 'Private Placement') of 3,875,000 units of the Corporation (the 'Units') at a price of $0.08 per Unit, for gross proceeds of $310,000. Each unit consists of one common share ('Common Share') and one half of one common share purchase warrant ('Warrant'), with each Warrant entitling the holder to acquire one common share, for a period of 24 months from the date of issue, at a price of $0.16 per share for the first 18 months and at a price of $0.20 per share thereafter.
The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for exploration expenses and working capital.
In that the sole subscriber to the Units is an insider of the Corporation, the Private Placement is a 'related party transaction' within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ('MI 61-101'), which requires the Corporation to obtain 'minority approval' of the Corporation's shareholders of the related party transaction unless there is an exemption from such requirement. The Corporation is relying on the exemption in Section 5.7(a) of MI 61-101 on the basis that the fair market value of the securities distributed to the related party is less than 25% of the Corporation's market capitalization.
The Common Shares and Warrants are subject to a statutory four month hold period, which expires March 17, 2021.
