VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / April 11, 2022 / Blue Lagoon Resources Inc. (the "Company") (CSE:BLLG)(FSE:7BL)(OTCQB:BLAGF) is pleased to announce that the Company has closed a second tranche of its non-brokered financing for proceeds of $1,514,500. A third strategic investment by Crescat Capital LLC ("Crescat") provided for nearly 50% of this financing. In addition, Crescat continues to maintain its previously secured participation rights that provide for an option to participate in all future financings.
"We are very pleased to receive a third investment from a sophisticated institutional investor like Crescat who continues to recognize the potential of Dome Mountain for not only the near term production opportunity and the clear potential to significantly increase the known resource on the Boulder Vein, but also for the potential of an Alkali gold system with well defined targets already drilled and ready for advancement as well as multiple targets ready for drill testing in 2022." said Rana Vig, President & CEO of Blue Lagoon Resources. "This additional capital will not only boost our treasury to well over $9 million, with no debt, and over $4 million in-the-money warrants, it will allow the Company to execute on its aggressive exploration plans in 2022." he added.
The private placement (the "Private Placement") consisted of 2,753,636 units ("Units") at a price of $0.55 per Unit, for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of $1,514,500. Each of the Units is comprised of one common share of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant is exercisable into one common share of the Company at an exercise price of either $0.78 per share until April 15, 2024.
Proceeds from the sale of the Units will be used for exploration activities and general working capital.
The Company paid finders' fees in cash in the aggregate amount of $48,400 from the sale of Units to certain third parties sourced by the finders and issued an aggregate of 88,000 finders' warrants to purchase that number of common shares of the Company. The finder's warrants may be exercised to acquire common shares of the Company at a price of $0.78 per common share until April 15, 2024.
The securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement are subject to a statutory four month hold period ending on August 9, 2022 in accordance with applicable securities laws.
