Vancouver, British Columbia – June 6, 2022 – Fremont Gold Ltd. (FRE: TSX-V; FRERF: OTCQB; FR2: FSE) (“Fremont” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the offering of a non-brokered private placement of up to 12,500,000 common shares (the “Shares”) at a price of $0.12 per Share for gross proceeds of up to $1,500,000 (the “Private Placement”). Closing is expected by June 24, 2022.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Private Placement for a minimum 1,500m drill program at Cobb Creek in order to follow up recently defined gold-in-soil geochemical anomalies, and general working capital.
A portion of the net proceeds will be used for evaluation of mineral properties outside North America, including applications for gold-copper prospects in the Tethyan Mineral Belt. Several such prospects have been identified, with one currently under application and several others being evaluated. Licensing usually takes two to three months.
Fremont may pay a finders’ fee of up to 6% of the gross proceeds raised in connection with the Private Placement.
All securities issued pursuant to the private placement will be subject to a four-month hold period under Canadian securities laws and the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange, as applicable.
Closing of the Private Placement and the payment of finders’ fees will be subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The securities offered will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an exemption from the registration requirements.
