Lincoln Gold Mining Inc., TSX-V: LMG ("Lincoln" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement offering (the “Private Placement”) of 6,400,000 units of the Company (the “Units”) at a price of $0.10 per Unit to raise gross proceeds of $640,000.
Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one half of a Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder, on exercise thereof, to purchase one additional Common Share at a price of $0.14 for a period of 24 months from the closing of the Private Placement.
All securities issued in connection with the Private Placement are subject to a four-month hold period from the closing date under applicable Canadian securities laws, in addition to such other restrictions as may apply under applicable securities laws of jurisdictions outside Canada.
Net proceeds from the Private Placement will be primarily used towards a pre-feasibility study and the final stages of the permitting process for the Company’s Pine Grove Gold Project in Nevada and for general working capital purposes.
Pursuant to the Private Placement, Mr. Shing Lee, a director of Lincoln, acquired a total of 1,000,000 Units. A material change report in connection with the Private Placement will be filed less than 21 days before the closing of the Private Placement. This shorter period was reasonable and necessary in the circumstances as the Company wished to complete the Private Placement in a timely manner.
This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities in the United States. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act") or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. Persons unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws, unless an exemption from such registration is available.
