RED METAL ANNOUNCES PRIVATE PLACEMENT
Vancouver, British Columbia -- March 10, 2023 -- Red Metal Resources Ltd. ("Red Metal" or the “Company”) (Canadian Securities Exchange: RMES) is pleased to announce its intention to complete a non-brokered private placement (the "Offering") of up to 10,000,000 units (the "Units") at a price of CDN$0.05 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to CDN$500,000. Each Unit will consist of one Common share in the capital of the Company (a “Share”) and one whole non-transferable Common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each whole Warrant will be exercisable to acquire one Share at an exercise price of CDN$0.12 per Share for a period of 12 months from the date of issuance and at an exercise price of CDN$0.20 per share for the period 12 to 24 months from the date of issuance.
The Offering is available to investors in reliance on exemptions from the prospectus requirement set out in National Instrument 45-106 Prospectus Exemptions and to existing shareholders of the Company and to investors who have received investment advice and to existing shareholders of the Company and to investors who have received investment advice in reliance on BC Instrument 45-534 Exemption from prospectus requirement for certain trades to existing security holders and the corresponding blanket orders and rules in the other Canadian jurisdictions (collectively, the "Existing Security Holder Exemption") and BC Instrument 45-536 Exemption from prospectus requirement for certain distributions through an investment dealer and the corresponding blanket orders and rules in the other Canadian jurisdictions that have adopted the same or a similar exemption from the prospectus requirement (collectively, the "Investment Dealer Exemption"). The Existing Security Holder Exemption is available in each of the provinces and territories of Canada to a person or company who became a shareholder of the Company on or before March 9, 2023 and continues to be a shareholder of the Company, subject to a maximum investment of CDN$15,000 using the Existing Security Holder Exemption in a 12-month period unless the shareholder has obtained advice regarding the suitability of the investment from a person registered as an investment dealer in the shareholder’s jurisdiction. The Investment Dealer Exemption is available in each of Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and New Brunswick to a person or company who has obtained advice regarding the suitability of the investment from a person registered as an investment dealer in such person’s or company’s jurisdiction. As required by the Existing Security Holder Exemption and Investment Dealer Exemption, the Company confirms there is no material fact or material change relating to the Company that has not been generally disclosed.
The Offering is not subject to a minimum subscription amount.
If the Offering is oversubscribed, unless the Company determines to increase the maximum gross proceeds of the Offering, the Company will allocate the Units issued under the Offering to those subscribers whose subscriptions were first received by the Company. A subscription will be deemed to be received when a completed subscription agreement together with payment of the subscription amount has been received by the Company.
Certain insiders of the Company may acquire Units in the Offering. Any participation by insiders in the Private Placement would constitute a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). However, the Company expects such participation would be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as the fair market value of the Units subscribed for by the insiders, nor the consideration for the Units paid by such insiders, would exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
Red Metal intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering will be used equally to further exploration activities, including geophysics, on their flagship Carrizal Property and general working capital purposes.
|Description of Expenses||Assuming Maximum Raised|
|Estimated financing legal costs, commissions and fees||CDN$50,000|
|Geophysics and ongoing permitting work for future drilling and environmental compliance||CDN$225,000|
|Operating, general and administrative expenses||CDN$225,000|
The Company may pay finder’s fees on a portion of the Offering, subject to applicable securities legislation.
The securities issued under the Offering, and any Shares that may be issuable on exercise of any such securities, will be subject to a statutory hold period expiring four months and one day from the date of issuance of such securities.
