Toronto, Ontario, December 22, 2022: Canadian North Resources Inc. (the “Corporation”) (TSX-V: CNRI; FSE: EO0, which is “E-O-zero”) announces that the closing of the second tranche of its offering of common shares (“Flow-Through Shares”) on a flow-through basis pursuant to the Income Tax Act (Canada), of which 218,520 Flow-Through Shares were issued at a price of $2.70 per share for gross proceeds of $1,159,704 (the “Flow-Through Offering).
The gross proceeds of the Flow-Through Offering will be used to fund the Corporation’s exploration activities targeting critical minerals on the Corporation’s Ferguson Lake project located in Nunavut, and will also be eligible for the recently announced federal 30% Critical Metals Exploration Tax Credit.
Finder’s fees will be paid in cash in an amount equal to 6% of the gross proceeds of the FlowThrough Offering.
The Flow-Through Shares are subject to a statutory four month hold period, which expires April 22, 2023.
Some insiders of the Corporation participated in part of the second tranche of the Flow-Through Offering, and that part of the Private Placement is a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”), which requires the Corporation to obtain “minority approval” of the Corporation’s shareholders of the related party transaction unless there is an exemption from such requirement. The Corporation is relying on the exemption in Section 5.7(a) of MI 61-101 on the basis that the fair market value of the securities distributed to the related party is less than 25% of the Corporation’s market capitalization.
