Opawica Explorations Inc. Announces Private Placement and AGM

Vancouver, B.C. – April 17th, 2023 – Opawica Explorations Inc. (TSXV: OPW) (FSE: A2PEAD) (OTC: OPWEF) (the “Company” or “Opawica”) is pleased to announce a proposed private placement offering to raise total gross proceeds of up to $600,000 (the “Offering”).
Opawica intends to undertake a non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) of up to 5,400,000 million units of securities of the Company (“Units”) at a purchase price of $0.10 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $600,000. Each Unit will be comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one whole Common Share purchase Warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional Common Share (a “Warrant Share”) at an exercise price of $0.15 at any time up to 36 months following issuance. The Common Shares will have a staggered release of four (4) months and one (1) day, eight (8) months, and twelve (12) months following date of issuance and the Warrant Shares will have an acceleration clause.
Proceeds will be used for general working capital and, more importantly, to define new drill targets on the Company’s wholly owned, Arrowhead and Bazooka properties, located near Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec. Opawica will continue to work with GoldSpot Discoveries (SPOT) to define these drill targets using the huge amounts of data generated over the past 24 months. Furthermore, Opawica Explorations is awaiting on accounts receivable related to GST, HST and QST rebates totaling over $450,000.
Insiders may participate in the placement and, as such, their participation in the Private Placement is a related-party transaction under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions.
Finders’ fees in connection with the Offering may be payable in accordance with the policies and subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”). All Shares issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day after closing of the Offering, eight months, and twelve months following the date of issuance. Completion of the Offering is subject to the final approval of the TSXV. Any participation by insiders in the Offering will constitute a related party transaction under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”) but is expected to be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101.
None of the securities sold in connection with the Offering will be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and no such securities may be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
The Company would also like to announce its Annual General Meeting, which is scheduled to take place on July 31, 2023 in Vancouver, B.C. Further details will be released closer to the meeting date.
