TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 12/19/13 -- Thundermin Resources Inc. ("Thundermin") (TSX VENTURE: THR) announces that it intends to raise, subject to regulatory approval and closing, $600,000 (the "Offering") in a non-brokered private placement.
The Offering will consist of $450,000 in flow-through units (the "FT Units") at a price of $0.05 per FT Unit and $150,000 in non-flow-through units (the "Normal Units") at a price of $0.05 per Normal Unit. Each FT Unit will consist of one flow-through common share and one half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant (each, a "FT Warrant"). Each Normal Unit will consist of one common share and one non-transferable common share purchase warrant (each, a "Normal Warrant" and together with the FT Warrants, the "Warrants"). Each whole FT Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase an additional common share of Thundermin at a price of $0.07 per share for a period of 18 months from the date of closing of the Offering. Each Normal Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase an additional common share of Thundermin for a period of 24 months from the date of closing of the Offering. The Warrants will be subject to an early call provision. In the event that Thundermin's shares trade at a weighted average price of $0.14 per share or more for a period of at least 20 consecutive trading days, Thundermin will have the right, upon giving notice in writing to the Warrant holders, to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is 30 days from the date that notice was provided.
Subject to the rules of the TSX Venture Exchange, Thundermin will pay eligible finders a fee consisting of cash and/or shares on that portion of the Offering that is arranged by the eligible finders.
The proceeds of the Offering will be used to fund Thundermin's exploration projects in Canada that qualify as "Canadian exploration expenses" under the Income Tax Act (Canada) and for general working capital purposes. In particular, Thundermin will use the funds raised from the FT Units to fund its 50% share of an approximately $600,000 diamond drilling program that Thundermin and joint venture partner, Rambler Metals and Mining Canada Limited, intend to undertake on the Little Deer Copper Deposit located approximately 10 km north of Springdale in north-central Newfoundland. The purpose of this program, which will commence by mid-January, is to expand resources at Little Deer and to commence upgrading inferred resources to indicated resources which is required before a pre-feasibility study can be undertaken.
