Use of Proceeds from the Offering
As previously announced in its press release dates December 16, 2021, the proceeds from the Offering will be used by the Company to support its gold drilling program for 2022 on its Midnight property which has already been permitted, allocated as per regulatory guidelines. The Company plans to drill holes to a depth of at least 600 meters per hole at its Midnight property.
The Company, using analysis from its 2009 26-hole gold drill program (the “2009 Drill Program“), noted that except for two holes (MN09-19 and MN09-26) from the 2009 Drill Program, all holes intersected a series of quartz veins and gold bearing serpentinites with significant gold values. Most notably from the 2009 Drill Program were: (i) hole MN09-15, which returned weighted average of 40.1 g/tonne over a true width of 2.3 m including 198 g/tonne Au for a true width of 0.8 m near surface (13.9 m in drill depth); and (ii) hole MN09-24, which returned a weighted average of 25.16 g/tonne over a true width of 3.6 m including 73.23 g/tonne Au for a true width of 1.2 m. For more detailed information, please refer to the Company’s September 24, 2020, news release or its website.
Based on the results from the 2009 Drill Program, the Company plans to further define the gold mineralization on its Midnight property in order to allow the Company to proceed with a mineral resource estimate pursuant to National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.
