Vancouver, British Columbia – (Newsfile Corp.) January 3, 2024 – NORTEC MINERALS CORP. (TSXV: NVT)(“Nortec” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSX-V”), it has closed its non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) of 2,428,569 units for gross proceeds of $85,000.

Each unit consists of one common share issued as a “flow-through share” (a “FT Share”), (as defined in subsection 66(15) of the Income Tax Act (Canada)) (the “Tax Act”) and one (1) common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”).

  • Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one (1) non-flow-through common share at an
    exercise price of $0.05 until the date (the “Expiry Date”) that is thirty-six (36) months following the date of issuance of the Warrants.
  • The Warrants are subject to an accelerated expiry date, at the Company’s option, which takes effect when the common shares of the Company trade at or above the volume-weighted average price of $0.10 per common share on the TSX-V (or such other stock exchange where the majority of the trading volume occurs) for a period of ten (10) consecutive trading days commencing four (4) months plus one (1) day after the date of issuance of the Warrants.

An amount equal to the gross proceeds from the issuance of the FT Shares will be used to incur “Canadian exploration expenses” (as this term is defined in the Tax Act) that the Company may renounce pursuant to the Tax Act with an effective date not later than December 31, 2024, and that qualify either as “flow-through mining expenditures” (as this term is defined in the Tax Act) or as “flow-through critical mineral mining expenditures” (as this term is defined in subsection 127(9) of the Tax Act), as determined in the sole discretion of the Company.

The above Private Placement amends and replaces the Expiry Date to thirty-six (36) months following the date of issuance of the Warrants from twenty-four (24) months following the date of issuance of the Warrants as announced on December 20, 2023.

No finders’ fees are payable in respect of the Private Placement the proceeds of which will be used for exploration activities on the Company’s Ontario mineral properties.

All securities issued under this Private Placement are subject to a hold period of 4 (four) months and 1 day from the date of issuance.
