Fully Funded to Drill
This private placement, together with the Company’s two prior financings completed in 2020 (see Northern Superior press releases dated January 20, 2020 and April 6, 2020) have raised an aggregate of $6,861,000 and as a result, the Company is now fully funded to drill all 3 of its key assets. The Company currently has over $7MM dollars in its treasury, which is the strongest financial position the Company has had since 2012.
Tom Morris, President and CEO of the Company states: “The Company is tremendously grateful to those who have participated in each of the three financing rounds that we have completed since the beginning of 2020. The $3,719,000 of Ontario charitable flow-through which has now been raised will allow Northern Superior to complete a substantial core drill program on its 100% owned TPK property: the first such opportunity since 2010- 2011. The $2,000,000 of Québec charitable flow-through which has been raised will provide the Company with a wide range of options to unlock the tremendous opportunities associated with its two key Québec assets, Lac Surprise and Croteau Est. Finally, the measured and strategic raise of $1,142,000 of hard dollars (all from certain Board members) coupled with hard dollars carried over from 2019 ensures the Company will have enough funds to cover overhead costs to the end of 2021. The Company is now in its best financial position since 2012.”
The Company is also pleased to confirm that New Gold Inc. (TSX and NYSE American: NGD) elected to acquire 437,176 common shares following this financing to maintain its 9.99% investment in Northern Superior.
