Huntsman Closes $2.1 Million Private Placement
Vancouver, British Columbia, November 29, 2021 – Huntsman Exploration Inc. (TSXV: HMAN; US:BBBMD) (the “Company” or “Huntsman”) is pleased to announce that it has closed a private placement of 31,027,529 shares of the Company at $0.07 per share for total gross proceeds of $2,171,927.
For its efforts in finding certain placees, the Company paid a total of $114,092.81 in finder’s fees to an arm’s length party.
Two insiders of the Company participated in the private placement for aggregate subscriptions of 882,857 shares. Participation of insiders of the Company in the private placement constitutes a related party transaction as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company has relied on the exemption from the formal valuation requirements of Section 5.4 of MI 61-101 pursuant to Subsection 5.5(a) of MI 61-101 and the exemption from the minority approval requirements of Section 5.6 of MI 61-101 pursuant to Subsection 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101.
Proceeds of the private placement will be used for exploration on the Company’s Canegrass property, acquisition costs relating to the final payment and exploration work on the Baxter Spring property, and general working capital. All securities issued under the placement will be subject to regulatory hold periods expiring four months and one day from the date of issue.
Canegrass Property Update
With funding for future exploration work now secured, the Company looks forward to providing a further detailed update with respect to the planned exploration program at Canegrass once it is finalized in the coming weeks.
The Company also wishes to advise that as part of the Western Australian Mining Act, the Company is required to surrender 40% of its tenement tenure on the sixth anniversary of the tenements grant date which has since passed. The original tenure consisted of 14 exploration blocks and as such, the Company was required to surrender 6 of the existing exploration blocks.
A comprehensive review of the exploration potential for nickel and base metals was conducted by the Company together with its consultants, and it was concluded that the tenure surrendered was deemed the least prospective given the levels of historical exploration conducted and would not in any way hinder the Company’s exploration efforts at the Canegrass Project on a go forward basis.
A map of the new tenement outline is included in Figure 1.
