Each Unit consists of one common share and one half-share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”) (the “Units”). Each full Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share at $0.21 per share for 36 months following closing.
The financing was significantly oversubscribed and the net proceeds from the Offering are planned for exploration at the Company’s Stillwater West PGE-Ni-Cu Project in Montana, USA (the “Stillwater West Project”) and for general corporate purposes.
President and CEO Michael Rowley stated, “We are very pleased with the level of interest in the Company and our 2019 exploration program, as reflected in the oversubscribed placement. The additional funding will directly enable an expanded field program at the Stillwater West Project where drilling, now underway, has intercepted massive and disseminated sulphide mineralization consistent with expectations based on geological modeling work by the Group Ten technical team. We look forward to making further announcements as we advance through our drill program at the Iron Mountain, Camp Zone, and Chrome Mountain target areas and complete follow-up work on the five additional multi-kilometer target areas where we see the potential for ‘Platreef-style’ bulk tonnage PGE-Ni-Cu-Co deposits.”

This news release includes certain statements that may be deemed “forward-looking statements”. All statements in this release, other than statements of historical facts, including, without limitation, statements regarding plans for future financing(s) and the timing and success of future exploration activities are forward-looking statements that involve various risks and uncertainties. Although Group Ten believes the expectations expressed in such forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, such statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results or developments may differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are based on a number of material factors and assumptions. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in forward-looking statements include failure to obtain necessary approvals, unsuccessful exploration results, changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined, availability of capital and financing on acceptable terms, general economic, market or business conditions, availability of personnel, materials and equipment on a timely basis, accidents or equipment breakdowns, and other exploration or other risks detailed herein and from time to time in the filings made by the companies with securities regulators. Readers are cautioned that mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Mineral exploration and development of mines is an inherently risky business.
