The private placements are not subject to any minimum subscriptions, and certain insiders of the Company have agreed to participate, with full particulars of such participation to be included in the news release announcing the closing of these private placements. The proceeds will be used by Northisle to finance a drilling program on its Red Dog deposit (forming part of its North Island Copper Gold Project on Vancouver Island), and for general working capital.
The securities issued pursuant to these private placements will be subject to a hold period expiring four months and one day from the date of issuance.
Northisle also announces that it has completed the debt settlement announced on April 20, 2016, pursuant to which $125,000 of indebtedness has been satisfied by the issuance of 2,500,000 common shares at a deemed price of $0.05 per share, all of which shares are subject to a hold period until September 3, 2016.
The Company has approved the granting of stock options to directors, officers, and consultants for the purchase of 1,585,000 common shares of the Company. The options will vest over a two-year period, with one-third vested on issue, one-third on the first anniversary date and one-third on the second anniversary date. These options have a five-year term and allow the holder to purchase one common share of the company for $0.05 cents a share until May 3, 2021.
Northisle is a Vancouver based junior resource company committed to the exploration and development of the North Island Copper-Gold Project on Northern Vancouver Island. The North Island Copper-Gold Project is situated approximately 15-40 kilometres southwest of Port Hardy on Vancouver Island and contains the Hushamu and Red Dog Deposits and five other partially explored copper-gold porphyry occurrences.
The Company has a current resource estimate of the Hushamu Deposit which has been filed on Sedar. The project is 100% owned by Northisle.
** Copper equivalent calculated using US$2.50/lb Cu, US$1100/oz Au and US$14.00/lb Mo and is not adjusted for mining and metallurgical recoveries as these remain uncertain. The formula used is as follows:
CuEQ = (Cu% x 22.0462 x 2.50) + (Au g/t x 1100.00/ 31.1035) + (Mo% x 22.0462 x 14.00
Rhenium values have not been used in the cutoff grade or Cu Equivalent calculations
In addition to the Hushamu Deposit, the Red Dog Property hosts a historical mineral resource of 20 million tonnes grading 0.30% copper, 0.55gpt gold and 0.012% molybdenum. The reader is cautioned that a qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as current resources and Northisle is not treating the historical estimate as current mineral resources.
