Atomic Minerals Corporation has received conditional approval from the TSX Venture Exchange to close a first tranche of its Private Placement Offering announced November 6, 2023, and has today issued 9,325,450 Units at $0.075 per Unit for gross proceeds of $699,408.75 (“First Tranche”).
Each Unit consists of one Common Share and one transferable Common Share purchase warrant (the “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.10 per Common Share for a period of three (3) years expiring on December 6, 2026.
8% Finder’s fees were paid in the form of cash and warrants on a portion of the First Tranche totaling $30,614.40 and 408,192 non-transferable warrants. The finder’s warrants entitle the holders to purchase one Common Share in the capital of the Company at an exercise price of $0.10 per Common Share for a period of two (2) years expiring on December 6, 2025.
Pursuant to the applicable statutory hold period, all securities issued may not be transferred or sold until April 7, 2024.
“This private placement is not just an investment in the company but an investment in the future of sustainable energy, and enables advancing its world-class exploration projects on the Colorado Plateau and the Athabasca Basin. With the price of uranium now surpassing $73.00, it’s evident that there’s an ever-increasing global demand for clean and sustainable energy sources. This upward trend is more than just numbers; it’s indicative of a paradigm shift in our global energy landscape. Our exploration projects stand at the forefront of this movement, poised to meet the growing demand and contribute to a cleaner, more sustainable world.”Clive Massey, CEO of Atomic Minerals Corporation
The funds raised from the Offering will provide the necessary capital to enable the Company to focus on permitting its Dolores Anticline Property (“Dolores“) for drilling. Dolores lies on the northern end of the Dolores Anticline, in San Miguel County, Colorado, at the southern end of the Uravan Mineral Belt (“Uravan“). Historic oil and gas, and uranium drilling on the nose and the flank of the Dolores anticline returned anomalous gamma ray spikes in the basal section of the Triassic Age Chinle Formation, indicating the potential presence of uranium mineralization. The past producing Bull Snake Mine further confirms the uranium potential of the Dolores anticline. The favorable sandstone unit within the Chinle, the Moss Back Member, clearly outcrops in the canyon of the Dolores River.
The Company will simultaneously commence the permitting process at the 10 Mile Property, where historic oil and gas drilling has also returned anomalous gamma ray spikes in the basal section of the Triassic Age Chinle Formation, again indicating the potential presence of uranium mineralization. Our Harts Point Project is currently joint ventured with Kraken Energy Corp. The uranium mineralization at all three of our U.S. properties was discovered through the study of drilling data previously generated by the oil and gas industry while exploring for future reserves. The Company has a further oil and gas database of over 13,000 drill holes. This financing will further contribute to the analysis of these holes for the presence of uranium mineralization as well as general working Capital.
The Private Placement is subject to the final acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Subject to the availability of a registration and/or prospectus exemption, a Finder’s Fee (“Fee”) may be payable in cash, and/or through the issuance of finder’s warrants equivalent to up to 8% of the total number of Units sold under the Offering. This Fee can be applied to all or portions of the Offering. Each finder’s warrant is exercisable into one Common Share at a price of $0.10 per share, valid for two years from the date of Closing.
