Toronto, August 30, 2021 – Baselode Energy Corp. (“Baselode” or the “Company”) (TSXV: FIND, OTCQB: BSENF) is pleased to announce the closing of a first tranche of a non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”). Under the first tranche, the Company sold 7,627,704 flow-through units of the Company (the “FT Units”) at a price of C$0.48 per FT Unit for gross proceeds to the Company of C$3,661,298. Each FT Unit will consist of one common share of the Company to be issued as a “flow-through share” within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (each, a “FT Share”) and one half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant issued under the first tranche will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share (each, a “Warrant Share”) at a price of C$0.75 at any time on or before August 30, 2023.
Net proceeds from the Offering will be used for exploration work at the Company’s Catharsis, Hook and Shadow projects. Work at these projects includes diamond drill testing for near-surface, basement-hosted, high-grade uranium targets in the Athabasca Basin area of northern Saskatchewan, Canada.
The gross proceeds from the issuance of the FT Shares will be used for “Canadian Exploration Expenses” (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada)) (the “Qualifying Expenditures”), which will be renounced with an effective date no later than December 31, 2021 to the purchasers of the FT Shares in an aggregate amount not less than the gross proceeds raised from the issue of the FT Shares. If the Qualifying Expenditures are reduced by the Canada Revenue Agency, the Company will indemnify each subscriber of FT Shares for any additional taxes payable by such subscriber as a result of the Company’s failure to renounce the Qualifying Expenditures.
Red Cloud Securities Inc. acted as finder under the Offering. Under the first tranche, the Company paid total finder’s fees of C$256,291 and issued to the finders 533,939 warrants of the Company (the “Finder’s Warrants”). Each Finder’s Warrant is exercisable to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of C$0.48 at any time on or before August 30, 2023. The FT Shares and Warrant Shares issuable under the initial tranche of the Offering as well as any common shares of the Company that are issuable from the Finder’s Warrants will be subject to a hold period ending on December 31, 2021, in accordance with applicable securities laws.
