TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/27/14 -- Latin American Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:LAT)(OTCQX:LATNF) (the "Company") announces a proposed financing of 10,000,000 common shares (the "LAT shares") at a price of $0.10 per share for total gross proceeds of $1,000,000 (the "Offering"). There are no finder's fees associated with the Offering.
Miles Rideout, President and CEO stated, "This proposed financing is significant. In tandem with the positive cash flow anticipated from the pilot heap leach facility now under construction, the Company expects to proceed with the evaluation of six highly prospective gold showings at Paso Yobai."
The Offering is fully subscribed for by Pinetree Capital Ltd. ("Pinetree") which will issue 2,000,000 common shares of Pinetree (the "Pinetree shares") to the Company, in payment of the purchase of the LAT shares. Pinetree is an insider and currently the largest shareholder of the Company. Subscriptions from such insiders are considered related-party transactions within the meaning of TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101.
The issuance of the LAT shares to Pinetree will result in Pinetree holding approximately 29% of the Company's undiluted stock, and result in the creation of a "Control Person" as defined by the TSX Venture Exchange. Consequently, the Offering is subject to the approval of a majority of the Company's disinterested shareholders and may require a special meeting of the shareholders. The issuance of the LAT shares and the Pinetree shares pursuant to the Offering are subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and the Toronto Stock Exchange, respectively, and to the standard four month hold period.
The net proceeds from the private placement will be used at the Company's Paso Yobai gold project and for general working capital purposes.
