Camino Minerals Corporation (“Camino” or the “Company”) (COR: TSX-V) wishes to announce that it intends to raise up to $1,000,000 to fund a diamond drill program at its Red Beds high grade copper-silver project, Department of Cuzco, Peru by way of a private placement.
The non-brokered private placement will consist of up to 5,000,000 units at a price of $0.20 per unit for aggregate proceeds of up to $1,000,000. Each unit will consist of one common share of the Company and one non-transferable share purchase warrant. Each warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.25 per common share for a period of 18 months after the closing date of the private placement. The warrants will be subject to an acceleration right in favour of the Company: should the closing price of the common shares of the Company on the TSX Venture Exchange be $0.35 or higher for ten consecutive trading days, the Company will be entitled to accelerate the expiry of the warrants to the date that is 30 business days from the date of the issuance of a news release by the Company announcing the exercise of the acceleration right.
The securities issued under the offering will be subject to a hold period of four months and finders’ fees may be payable in connection with the issuance of the securities. The private placement is subject to applicable regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Net proceeds of the private placement will be used to fund ongoing exploration, including a diamond drill program at the Red Beds Project, and for general working capital.
The Red Beds Project is a high grade, sediment hosted copper-silver deposit. A series of sub-parallel sedimentary beds have been identified with mineralization exposed over strike lengths of 1 to 5 kilometers. Typical of this type of deposit, the beds range in thickness from 0.4 meters to 3.0 meters, and contain copper values generally between 0.5% and 4%, but with local values ranging up to +10%.
