Summa Silver Corp. Announces $8,000,000 Private Placement Financing, Including a Lead Investment by Eric Sprott
Vancouver, July 21, 2020 – Summa Silver Corp. (“Summa” or the “Company” - https://www.commodity-tv.com/play/summa-silver-focus-on-new-discoveries-in-a-historic-district/) (CSE:SSVR) is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement financing of Units of the Company (the “Units”) at a price of $1.00 per Unit (the “Offering”) for gross proceeds of $8,000,000. Participation in the Offering is expected to include a lead order of $5,000,000 from Mr. Eric Sprott.
Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each full Warrant shall be exercisable to acquire one Common Share (a “Warrant Share”) at a price of $1.75 per Warrant Share for a period of 24 months from the closing of the Offering. If the closing price of the Common Shares is at a price equal to or greater than $3.00 for a period of ten consecutive trading days, Summa will have the right to accelerate the expiry date of the warrants by giving notice, via a news release, to the holders of the Warrants that the Warrants will expire on the date that is 30 days after the issuance of said news release.
Galen McNamara, CEO of the Company, stated: “This financing represents another landmark for Summa Silver and we very much appreciate the strong and continued support from Mr. Sprott. Once this financing closes, we will be in a robust financial position with over CAD $12 million on hand. We look forward to the assay results from the on-going drill program on the eastern side of the re-emerging high-grade Tonopah silver district of central Nevada. We now anticipate being able to aggressively expand the on-going drill program and will look to add additional drills on site in the near future.”
The financing is subject to regulatory approval and all securities to be issued pursuant to the financing are subject to a four-month hold period under applicable Canadian securities laws. The Company may pay finder’s fees commensurate with regulatory policies on a portion of the private placement of up to 6% in cash and 6% in finder’s warrants exercisable for one common share at an exercise price of $1.00 for two years.
Eventus Capital Corp. has been appointed as a finder in connection with the Offering.
Proceeds from the financing will be used for exploration, corporate development, and general working capital purposes.
About Summa Silver Corp
Summa Silver Corp is a Canadian junior mineral exploration company. The Company is focused on the Hughes Property located in central Nevada, which is host to the high-grade historically producing Belmont Mine, one of the most prolific silver producers in the United States between 1903 and 1929. The mine has remained inactive since commercial production ceased in 1929 due to heavily depressed metal prices and little to no modern exploration work has ever been completed.
