Vancouver, British Columbia – November 4, 2019: GSP Resource Corp. (TSX-V: GSPR) (the “Company” or “GSP”) is pleased to announce that further to its news release on October 29, 2019, it has closed its oversubscribed non-brokered private placement of 1,120,000 flow-through units (each a “FT Unit”) at a price of $0.15 per FT Unit for gross proceeds of $168,000 (the “Private Placement”). As previously disclosed, each FT Unit consists of one flow-through common share (the “FT Shares”) and one non flow-through common share purchase warrant (the “Warrants”). Each whole Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional non flow-through common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.20 per common share for a period of 24 months from the date of issue (the “Expiry Time”), provided that, if after four months from the date of issue, the closing price of the common shares of the Company on any stock exchange or quotation system on which the common shares are then listed or quoted is equal to or greater than $0.40 for a period of ten (10) consecutive trading days at any time prior to the Expiry Time, the Company will have the right to accelerate the Expiry Time of the Warrants by giving notice to the holders of the Warrants by news release or other form of notice permitted by the certificate representing the Warrants that the Warrants will expire at 4:30 p.m. (Vancouver time) on a date that is not less than fifteen (15) days from the date notice is given. The FT Shares will entitle the holder to receive the tax benefits applicable to flow-through shares, in accordance with provisions of the Income Tax Act (Canada).
Three insiders of the Company subscribed for FT Units, constituting “related party transactions” within the meaning of TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”) adopted in such policy. The Company has relied on the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(a)(1), respectively, of MI 61-101 in respect of related party participation in the Private Placement on the basis that neither the fair market value of the subject matter of, nor the fair market value of the consideration for, the subscriptions for Units by the Insider Placees exceeded 25% of the Company’s “market capitalization” (as calculated for the purposes of MI 61-101). Further details will be included in a material change report to be filed by the Company. The material change report will not be filed more than 21 days prior to the closing of the Private Placement due to the timing of the announcement of the Private Placement and closing occurring in less than 21 days.
All securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement are subject to a four month hold period from the closing date in accordance with applicable securities laws.
The proceeds raised from the FT Units will be used for exploration work on the Company’s Olivine Mountain property located in the Similkameen Mining Division, 25 km northwest of Princeton, British Columbia, and other Canadian Exploration Expenses (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada)), with the Company using its best efforts to ensure that such Canadian Exploration Expenses qualify as a “flow-through mining expenditure” for purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada), related to the exploration of the Company’s exploration projects.
