VANCOUVER, March 8, 2019. Altan Nevada Minerals Ltd. (TSX.V ANE) (“Altan Nevada” or the
“Company”) is pleased to announce it has closed a private placement to raise capital for the continued
exploration and drilling at the company’s 100% owned Venus Copper Project. The Company also
announced it will undertake a 2:1 consolidation of its common shares following the Private Placement.
The Company has closed a non-brokered private placement to raise gross proceeds of $1,132,240.65
through the sale of units at a price of $0.025 per unit (the “Private Placement”). Each unit consists of one
common share of the Company and a share purchase warrant entitling the holder to acquire an additional
common share at a price of $0.05 for a period of three years following closing. In connection with the
closing of the Private Placement, the Company paid finder’s fees of $39,000 and issued 780,000 common
shares to CED Capital Limited. Following the closing of the Private Placement, the Company will have
83,099,226 common shares issued and outstanding.
The units sold in the Placement, and any shares issued on the exercise of the warrants comprising these
units, are be subject to a resale hold period under applicable Canadian securities laws which expires on
July 9, 2019.
Use of Proceeds
The $1,132,240.65 in gross proceeds are intended to be applied broadly as follows:
|Use of Proceeds||Cost|
|Payment of Existing Trade Creditors||$60,000|
|Environmental access, mining licence and permitting fees||$40,303|
|2019 Exploration Program||$472,500|
|General and administrative expenses||$200,000|
Further to the payments of existing trade creditors, the Company intends to settle debts of $1,031,706
(the “Debts“) with its remaining creditors through the issuance of shares for debt, subject to final approval
of the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSX-V“), following the Share Consolidation (as defined below). Pursuant
to the proposed shares for debt transaction, the Company intends to issue 20,634,130 common shares
and 16,919,074 share purchase warrants entitling the holder to acquire a common share to settle the
Debts. Substantially all of the Company’s remaining creditors, who are owed in the aggregate
approximately $150,000, have agreed not to require repayment of their debts prior to December 2019,
although the Company may enter into settlement agreements respecting the debts with some or all of its
creditors at any time.
At a special meeting of the shareholders on October 5, 2018, the shareholders approved by special
resolution that the authorized share structure of the Company be altered by consolidating all of the issued
common shares without par value on a 2:1 basis, such that every two (2) pre-consolidation common
shares will be consolidated into one (1) post-consolidation common share; (the “Share Consolidation“).
Accordingly, when the Share Consolidation is put into effect, a total of 41,549,613 common shares in the
capital of the Company would be issued and outstanding following the Share Consolidation, assuming no
other change in the issued capital.
Pursuant to the Share Consolidation, registered shareholders will be required to exchange the share
certificates representing their pre-consolidation common shares. Following the announcement by the
Company of the effective date of the Share Consolidation, registered shareholders will be sent a letter of
transmittal from Computershare (the “Transfer Agent“). The letter of transmittal will contain instructions on
how to surrender the share certificate(s) or DRS advice representing the pre-consolidation common shares
to the Transfer Agent. The Transfer Agent will forward to each registered shareholder who has sent the
required documents a new share certificate or DRS advice representing the number of post-consolidation
common shares to which the shareholder is entitled. Until surrendered, each share certificate representing
pre-consolidation common shares of the Company will be deemed for all purposes to represent the number
of whole post-consolidation common shares to which the holder is entitled as a result of the Share
Consolidation. Shareholders should not destroy any share certificate(s) and should not submit any share
certificate(s) until requested to do so.
Non-registered shareholders holding their common shares through a bank, broker or other nominee
should note that such banks, brokers or other nominees may have different procedures for processing the
Share Consolidation than those that will be put in place by the Company for registered shareholders.
Altan Nevada’s Venus Property Exploration Plans
The Venus Project is located within the Yerington copper porphyry district in the Walker Lane mineralized
belt in Nevada. It is approximately six miles east-south-east of the Yerington township, and easily
accessible by both paved and dirt roads.
Altan Nevada’s decision to advance exploration at the Venus Project coincides with the recommencement
of development of Nevada Copper Corp.’s (TSX:NCU) (“Nevada Copper”) Pumpkin Hollow Copper Mine
immediately to the north and less than one mile from the tenement boundary which is expected to
produce an average 50 million pounds of copper annually over 23 years commencing mid-2019.
A news release highlighting the most recent exploration activities and potential for the Venus project was
released on February 5, 2019. Venus is considered to have the potential for the discovery of new deposits
of similar size and grade to Pumpkin Hollow. It also has the potential for discovery of buried porphyry-
style copper mineralization with characteristics similar to the Yerington Mine.
