VANCOUVER, British Columbia, November 20, 2019 — Search Minerals Inc. ("Search" or the "Company") (TSXV: "SMY") is pleased to announce that the Company is conducting a non-brokered private placement of up to 10,000,000 flow-through common shares of the Company (the "Flow-Through Shares") at a price of $0.05 per Flow-Through Share for maximum gross proceeds of up to $500,000 (the "Offering").
Proceeds from the Offering will be used to incur “Canadian exploration expenses”, as defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada), related to the Company’s mineral projects in the Critical Rare Earth Element District of South East Labrador (the “District”). In particular, the proceeds will be used towards a Phase 3 drill program at Deep Fox, and other exploration work in the District.
The Offering is expected to close on or about December 31, 2019 and is subject to a number of conditions, including receipt of all necessary corporate and regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a four-month hold period under applicable securities legislation. The Company may also pay finder’s fees in connection with the Offering.
About Search Minerals Inc.
Led by a proven management team and board of directors, Search is focused on finding and developing resources within the emerging Critical Rare Earth Element (“CREE”) District of South East Labrador. The Company controls a belt 70 km long and 8 km wide including its 100% interest in the FOXTROT and DEEP FOX Projects, which are road accessible and at tidewater. Exploration efforts have advanced “Fox Meadow” as a new CREE prospect very similar to and in close proximity to FOXTROT and DEEP FOX. The FOXTROT Project has a low capital cost to bring the initial project into production ($152 M), a short payback period and is scalable due to Search’s proprietary processing technology.
The FOXTROT preliminary economic assessment is preliminary in nature and includes inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves, and there is no certainty that the preliminary economic assessment will be realized. The preliminary economic assessment includes the results of an economic analysis of mineral resources. Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability.
