News Release – Vancouver, British Columbia – October 15, 2020:SKRR Exploration Inc. (TSXV: SKRR; OTC: SKKRF; FSE: B04Q) (“SKRR” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has arranged a non-brokered private placement consisting of up to 6.5 million common shares at a price of 28 cents per share for gross aggregate proceeds of up to $1.82-million (the “Private Placement”).
The common shares issued under the Private Placement will qualify as flow-through shares. The gross proceeds from the Private Placement will be used to incur Canadian exploration expenses that will qualify as flow-through mining expenditures as those terms are defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada), which will be renounced to the purchasers of the flow-through shares.
“As disclosed in our October 14, 2020 news release, the drill program at the Olson property is advancing well, with a total of 7 holes totaling 968m completed to date on 3 separate target areas; Jena/Juba, Point and Tuscan,” commented Sherman Dahl, chief executive officer. “This offering will allow us to expand the ongoing Olson drill program and fund strategic exploration work on our Irving / Leland Project moving forward.”
The Private Placement is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval and all securities are subject to a four month hold period from the date of issuance. Mackie Research Capital Corporation will receive finder’s fees in cash or securities equal to 7% of a portion of the proceeds or the number of shares sold, all in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange and applicable securities laws. Closing of the Private Placement is expected on or about Oct 25, 2020.
The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for expanding the ongoing Olson drill program as well as strategic exploration work on SKRR’s Irving / Leland Project (to be comprehensively detailed in future news releases). The Irving / Leland Project is a large land package covering more than 23,500 hectares strategically located within 10km to 20km of SRR Mining’s very successful Seabee Gold Mine operation, Saskatchewan’s largest orogenic gold deposit. SKRR cautions that past results or discoveries on proximate lands are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved on the Irving / Leland Project.
