NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION, DISTRIBUTION OR DISSEMINATION DIRECTLY, OR INDIRECTLY, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES.
Alexandria Minerals Corporation (TSX VENTURE:AZX)(FRANKFURT:A9D) is pleased to announce that it has completed the first tranche of a brokered private placement financing (the “Private Placement”) for gross proceeds of $1,634,000, which was completed by Laurentian Bank Securities Inc. (the “Agent”). The first tranche of the Private Placement consisted of 13,072,000 of “Quebec Flow-Through Units” (each, a “QFT Unit”) at a price of $0.125 per QFT Unit.
Each QFT Unit consists of one “flow-through” common share of the Company and one half of one (1/2) non-transferable common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company (a “Warrant Share”) at a price of $0.18 for a period of 18 months from the completion of the Private Placement.
The Company paid the Agent a cash commission equal to 7% of the gross proceeds raised under the Private Placement. In addition, the Agent received compensation options entitling the Agent to purchase that number of common shares equal to 7% of the aggregate number of QFT Units issued by the Company with an exercise price equal to $0.18 per compensation option. Each compensation option entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the Company and will be exercisable for a period of 18 months from the completion of the Private Placement.
The proceeds from the sale of the QFT Units will be used for exploration and drilling on Alexandria’s Cadillac Break property group in Val d’Or, Quebec. Focus will be on step-out drilling on its Akasaba gold-copper project on which the Company has had considerable success enlarging through drilling throughout recent months.
All securities are subject to a four month hold period expiring on March 15, 2013. The Private Placement is subject to the final acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.
