(AZT: TSX-V, OTCQB: AZZTF) announces that it has closed its non-brokered Private Placement financing of Units announced in its news release dated February 21, 2020. The financing included participation by sophisticated investors, shareholders and directors of the Company. No finder’s fees were payable with respect to this financing.
Aztec issued an aggregate of 8.0 million Units at a purchase price of CAD$0.05 per Unit for gross proceeds of CAD$400,000. Each Unit consisted of one common share of Aztec and one-half (1/2) warrant with each full warrant exercisable to purchase an additional common share at an exercise price of CAD$0.10 until April 3, 2022. The securities issued in the Private Placement are subject to a four month hold period ending on August 4, 2020 in accordance with applicable securities laws and TSX Venture Exchange policies. The Private Placement is subject to the final acceptance of the Exchange.
The securities offered under the Private Placement have not been, nor will they be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent U.S. federal and state registration or an applicable exemption from the U.S. registration requirements. This release does not constitute an offer for sale of securities in the United States.
Aztec intends to use the net proceeds from the Private Placement to conduct exploration work on its Tombstone CRD silver-gold-lead-zinc-copper project in Arizona, and for general working capital purposes.
The Company confirms it recently met the 2nd anniversary commitments of the 3-year option agreement with Baroyeca Gold and Silver whereby Aztec is earning a 75% interest in the Tombstone project. An AMT geophysical survey was also completed over the Tombstone property in March to better define deep carbonate replacement deposit targets for drilling. The AMT data are currently being processed and interpreted and will be released in a few weeks.
Aztec has retained Simon Dyakowski, MBA, CFA, as a corporate development consultant for three months commencing April 1, 2020 to assist the Company in preparing and executing its strategic plan. Marc Prefontaine has resigned from his position as an advisor to the Company to focus on new opportunities.
