Wallbridge Mining Announces Closing of Private Placement
TORONTO, March 25, 2011 /CNW/ - Wallbridge Mining Company Limited ("Wallbridge" or the "Company") (TSX: WM) is pleased to announce it has completed a non-brokered private placement of 3,000,000 flow-through common shares of the Company (each a "Flow-Through Share") at $0.26 per share (the "Offering") raising aggregate gross proceeds of $780,000. The Offering was fully subscribed.
Commenting on the Offering, Alar Soever, President and CEO of Wallbridge stated "We are very pleased to have added two new institutional investors to our already broad shareholder base. This placement will be used to fund the recently announced drilling at the Broken Hammer Zone and a very active summer exploration program on our other Sudbury properties".
The gross proceeds raised from the issuance of the Flow-Through Shares will be used by the Company to incur exploration expenditures on its properties in Ontario which will constitute "Canadian exploration expenses" and "flow-through mining expenditures" (as defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada)) which can be renounced to purchasers for the 2011 taxation year.
A cash fee of 6% of the gross proceeds raised was paid to Topleft Securities Ltd., being the finder used by the Company in connection with the Flow-Through Offering.
Wallbridge Mining Company Limited's primary focus is the exploration for platinum group element ("PGE"), nickel, and copper deposits in the Sudbury area of Ontario. The Sudbury area hosts the world's largest concentration of nickel deposits and is currently the most active mining camp in North America. Major joint venture partners in Sudbury include Vale Inco, Xstrata Nickel, Lonmin Plc and Impala Platinum Holdings Limited. Wallbridge also has a major shareholding in Duluth Metals Limited, which has defined a large copper-nickel-PGE resource in the rapidly emerging Duluth Complex base metal camp in Minnesota.
