Vancouver, British Columbia / October 16, 2020 – Usha Resources Ltd. (“USHA” or the “Company”) (TSXV: USHA) (OTCQB: USHAF) is pleased to announce that, further to its news release of September 17, 2020, it is proceeding with the close of the first tranche of the Company’s non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”), issuing an aggregate of 2,065,830 units (the “Units”) at $0.20 per Unit raising gross proceeds of $413,166.
Each Unit consists of one common share (a “Share”) of the Company and one-half of one transferable common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant a “Warrant“). Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire an additional Share for a period of 2 years at an exercise price of $0.30 per Share, provided that in the event that the closing price of the Company’s Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) (or such other exchange on which the Company’s Shares may become traded) is $0.75 or greater per Share during any thirty (30) consecutive trading day period at any time subsequent to four months and one day after the closing date, the Warrants will expire at 4:00 p.m. (Vancouver time) on the 30th day after the date on which the Company provides notice of such accelerated expiry to the holders of the Warrants (the “Accelerated Expiry Provisions”).
All securities issued in the Private Placement will be subject to a four month and one day hold period plus the TSXV hold period. The Company will pay finders’ fees totaling $1,050 cash and 5,250 non-transferable finder warrants (the “Finder Warrants“) to PI Financial Corp. in accordance with applicable securities laws. The Finder’s Warrants are exercisable on the same terms as the Warrants issued in the Private Placement.
The net proceeds from the Private Placement will be used for exploration at Usha’s Lost Basin and Nicobat projects and for working capital and general corporate purposes.
The Company expects to close the second and final tranche of the Private Placement shortly.
The Company also announces that it is amending the terms of its flow-through private placement (the “FT Private Placement”) reducing the issuance price of the flow-through units (a “FT Unit”) from $0.30 per FT Unit to $0.25 per FT Unit. Each FT Unit will consist of one flow-through common share in the capital of the Company and one-half of one transferable Warrant, with each whole Warrant exercisable at $0.35 per Share, instead of $0.40 per Share as previously announced, for a period of 2 years subject to the Accelerated Expiry Provisions. The Company expects to raise up to $300,000 in the FT Private Placement through the issuance of up to 1,200,000 FT Units.
Closing of the Private Placement and FT Private Placement is subject to the approval of the TSXV.
