CALGARY, ALBERTA – January 31, 2018. West High Yield (W.H.Y.) Resources Ltd. (“West High Yield” or the “Company“) (TSXV: WHY) announces that it has completed the first tranche of its previously announced non-brokered private placement of units (“Units“). The Company issued an aggregate of 2,721,581 Units at a price of $0.35 per Unit for gross proceeds of $952,553. Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Common Share“) and one-third of one common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant“). Each whole Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional Common Share at an exercise price of $0.55 for a period of one year from the date of issuance of the Warrant. All of the securities issued under the private placement are subject to a four month resale restriction. The private placement is subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals including final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. It is expected that the balance of the private placement of approximately $600,000 will be completed on or before February 12, 2018.
The net proceeds of the private placement will be used for general corporate purposes and for the continuation of the environmental base line study, environmental assessment study and mine plan and permit application and Industrial Quarry Permit application for its Record Ridge deposit near Rossland, British Columbia. The Industrial Quarry Permit sought under the Mines Act (British Columbia) will allow for the extraction and sale of up to 249,999 tonnes per annum of industrial rock. The Company is also in the process of developing potential customers with processing facilities and the ability to process the industrial rock. It is anticipated that industrial rock sales will provide cash flows from operations while continued mine plan and permit application efforts are being made.
