Critical Minerals & Rare Earths

December 21, 2023 (Source) — Imperial Mining Group Ltd. (the “Company” or “Imperial”) (TSXV:IPG) (OTC:IMPNF) is pleased to announce that it closed today a non-brokered Critical Minerals Flow-Through private placement through the issuance of 10,200,000 shares on a “flow-through” basis  (“FT Shares”) at a price of $0.10 per FT Share for aggregate gross proceeds of $1,020,000 (the “Offering”).

“The Offering supports our 2024 objectives of progressing Crater Lake towards a Pre-Feasibility Study. The Company will complete fundamental work on the project that supports the PFS.” Said Pierre Neatby, President and CEO of Imperial.

The gross proceeds from the Offering will be used to incur eligible “Canadian critical minerals exploration expenses” at the Company’s Crater Lake Scandium project in Québec that will qualify as “flow-through critical mineral mining expenditures” within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada).

In connection with the Offering, the Company paid finders’ fees for a total of $51,000 in cash to finders, which were all at arms’ length with the Company. All securities issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to the applicable statutory hold period of four (4) months and one (1) day from the closing date. The Offering is subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”).

This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to sell any of the securities in the United States. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”) or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to U.S. Persons unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.

Multilateral Instrument 61-101

Two directors and one officer of the Company, namely Jeffrey Swinoga, Nicholas Nikolakakis and Luc C. Duchesne, each acquired, respectively, 100,000, 100,000 and 150,000 FT Shares in the Offering, and such transaction is considered to be a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”). As such, the shareholding of Messrs. Swinoga, Nikolakakis and Duchesne each increased approximately to 0.27%, 0.04% and 0.61% respectively (increased approximately to 0.9%, 0.35% and 0.88% on a partly diluted basis, respectively). The transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as the Company is listed on the TSXV and the fair market value of any securities issued to or the consideration paid does not exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization. Imperial did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the closing of the Offering, as the details of the aforementioned insiders’ participation had not been confirmed at that time. The Board Members of Imperial reviewed the state of the financial market and unanimously determined that the terms and conditions of the Offering, including the subscriptions of the related parties, were fair and equitable and represented the best strategic financing option available.
