LITHIUM SOUTH ANNOUNCES CLOSING OF NON-BROKERED PRIVATE PLACEMENT AND NEW NON-BROKERED PRIVATE PLACEMENT
Lithium South Development Corp. has closed its non-brokered private placement, issuing an aggregate of 8,000,412 units at a price of 22.5 cents per unit, raising gross proceeds of $1,800,092.80. Each Unit is comprised of one common share (a "Share") and one transferable common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant allows the holder to purchase one additional Share of the Company at a price of $0.35 per Share for a period of five years from the date of closing of the Private Placement.
The Warrants are subject to an accelerated expiry provision whereby if the Company's Shares close at or above $0.40 per Share during any 10 consecutive trading day period at any time subsequent to four months and one day after the closing date, the holder will have 30 days from the date the Company provides notice of such accelerated expiry to exercise the Warrant or it will expire.
The Company paid finder's fees of $90,363.44 and 401,615 finder's warrants (the "Finder's Warrants") to Richard Savage, Nathan Rotstein and Public Eye Consulting Busche. The Finder's Warrants are non-transferable and exercisable on the same terms as the Private Placement Warrants.
Proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to advance the Company's HMN Lithium Project, located in Salta Province, Argentina. The project is located on the Hombre Muerto Salar, the premier lithium producing salar in Argentina. The property is adjacent to land under development by Korean multinational corporation POSCO, who acquired their ground from Galaxy Resources Ltd. for $ US 280 million. The Company completed a Preliminary Economic Assessment of the HMN Li Project in 2019, and the property has two pumping wells installed. The next phase of development will include moving the project to a pre-feasibility. In addition, the Company is evaluating several new extraction technologies for lithium production which may be applicable to the project.
All securities issued will be subject to a four month hold period.
The Company also announces an additional Private Placement of up to 10,000,000 Units at a price of $0.34125 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $3,412,500. Each Unit will be comprised of one Share and one transferable Warrant. Each Warrant will allow the holder to purchase one Share of the Company at a price of $0.455 per Share for a period of five years from the date of closing of the Private Placement.
Private Placements, deren Closing am gestrigen Montag gemeldet wurde, kann das angekündigte Lithium-Projekt in Argentinien angeschoben werden. Für positiven Newsflow in den kommenden Wochen dürfte somit gesorgt sein.
