Orea Exceeds $2.5 Million Financing Target by Raising $2.97 Million
Vancouver, BC, Canada, July 22, 2020. Orea Mining Corp. (OREA: TSX, OREAF: OTCQX, 3CG: FSE) (“Orea”) is pleased to announce that it has raised CAD$2,965,000. The funds were raised in a combination of private placement of Orea units (see news release dated March 31, 2020) and the sale of common shares of a third-party publicly traded company held in Orea’s investment portfolio.
On February 13, 2020, Orea announced a non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) for gross proceeds of CAD$2.5 million, of which a first tranche totaling CAD$1.39 million was closed on March 31, 2020. Given the recent favorable recovery of the junior gold sector, Orea was able to monetize third-party shares it held, hence reducing the size of the Private Placement and the need for another tranche, which thereby results in the important effect of minimizing dilution to Orea shareholders. Orea expects to monetize additional third-party shares in its investment portfolio in the near future.
The proceeds from the Private Placement and the third-party share sale will be used for general working capital purposes, with a particular emphasis on the identification and acquisition of additional accretive gold project opportunities for Orea and its shareholders.
