The gross proceeds from the sale of the FT Shares will be used to fund work on the Company’s properties as qualifying Canadian Exploration Expenses as defined in subsection 127(9) of the Income Tax Act (Canada) which will be renounced to the subscribers with an effective date of December 31, 2017.
The net proceeds from the sale of the Common Shares will be used for advancing the Company’s projects, working capital and general corporate purposes.
Finder’s fees payable on the Offering to Sprott Capital Partners and Mackie Research Capital, consisting of (i) a fee equal to 6% of the gross proceeds of the Offering placed by the finders (satisfied through the issuance of 1,371,374 compensation shares), and (ii) the issuance of 1,221,132 non-transferable share purchase warrants (the “Finders’ Warrants”) equal to 6.0% of the Common Shares and FT Shares placed by the finders were also issued by the Company. Each Finders’ Warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for one common share for 24 months from the closing date of the Offering at $0.175.
All of the securities sold pursuant to the Offering, including the shares issuable on exercise of the Finders’ Warrants, are subject to a four month hold period expiring on November 20, 2017. Such securities will not participate in the receipt of the third-party share dividend to be received by the other RCG shareholders in connection with the transaction involving the transfer of the Corcoran project previously announced by the Company.
