TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 12/23/13 -- Goldeye Explorations Limited (TSX VENTURE: GGY) wishes to announce completion of the first tranche of a partially brokered private placement of up to a total of $1,500,000 offered through the sale of a combination of (i) up to 15,000,000 hard dollar units at $0.10 per unit; and (ii) up to 13,636,364 flow-through units at $0.11 per unit. Each hard dollar unit consists of one common share and one warrant. Each flow-through unit consists of one flow-through common share and one-half of a warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share for 24 months at a price of $0.15 per share. To date, the financing resulted in gross proceeds of $525,320 from the sale of 4,230,182 flow-through units and 600,000 hard dollar units.
Goldeye paid a total of $36,772 in commissions (7%) in connection with this initial closing. All of the securities will be subject to a four month hold period.
Goldeye previously announced (News Release - November 18, 2013) that it has entered into an exploration agreement with Sandy Lake First Nation (SLFN) regarding Goldeye's mineral exploration activities on its Weebigee Project at Sandy Lake in the Red Lake Mining District, Northwestern Ontario. The Agreement and its implementation were subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. Such approval was subsequently received and Goldeye has issued 500,000 of its common shares to SLFN to cover the initial term of the exploration agreement.
The proceeds of the flow-through financing will be used to carry out mineral exploration on the Weebigee Project that qualifies as Canadian Exploration Expenses (CEE) under the Income Tax Act (Canada), enabling the subscriber to obtain applicable tax credits and deductions. The hard dollar financing will be used to pay costs of the private placement, general administrative expenses and overhead.
Blaine Webster, President and Chief Executive Officer of Goldeye commented, "The fact that Goldeye has been able to successfully finance in such a difficult market shows the confidence that investors have in the potential of Goldeye's high-grade Weebigee Project. Goldeye expects a second tranche of the financing to close before the end of the year. A 2500 m drill program will commence in early February after personnel and equipment are mobilized to the project via winter road."
On behalf of the Board of Directors,
Blaine Webster, P.Geo., President and CEO
