Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - December 30, 2021) - Precipitate Gold Corp. (TSXV: PRG) (OTCQB: PREIF) (the "Company" or "Precipitate") is pleased to announce the closing of its non-brokered private placement of 22,454,333 units of the Company for gross proceeds of C$2,179,390 (the "Offering").
Further to the Company's news releases dated December 7, 2021, and December 20, 2021, the Offering consisted of two parts:
flow-through ("FT") units at $0.10 per unit, each unit consisting of one flow-through common share and one-half of a warrant, each whole warrant exercisable at $0.15 per share for 24 months; and
non-flow-through ("NFT") units at $0.09 per unit, each unit consisting of one non-flow-through common share and one-half of a warrant, each whole warrant exercisable at $0.15 per share for 24 months.
Jeffrey Wilson, Company President & CEO, stated, "We are pleased to complete this important offering. Investor demand from supportive existing shareholders and new investors alike, allowed the Company to upsize and oversubscribe the offering to facilitate a more aggressive and sustained exploration campaign for the Newfoundland projects in 2022. Meanwhile, the additional non-flow-through dollars, when combined with the existing treasury, provides a healthy working capital to keep the Company moving forward with a view to leveraging value from our projects in the Dominican Republic. We appreciate the support from investors and look forward to an active and prosperous 2022."
The proceeds from the Offering will be used for exploration and development of the Company's mineral property interests in Newfoundland, Canada, and for general working capital purposes. The gross proceeds from the issuance of all flow-through shares will be used to incur Canadian Exploration Expenses ("CEE"), and will qualify as "flow-through mining expenditures" under the Income Tax Act (Canada), which will be renounced to the purchasers of flow-through shares with an effective date no later than December 31, 2021 in an aggregate amount no less than the proceeds raised from the issue of the flow-through shares.
The Company paid commissions to finders under the placement consisting of aggregate commissions of C$56,984 cash, 194,444 NFT Units, and the issuance of 825,600 finder's warrants. Each finder's warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share of Precipitate until December 30, 2023.
All securities issued or issuable under the offering are subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus a day following the date of closing, in addition to such other restrictions as may apply under applicable securities laws in jurisdictions outside of Canada.
Final closing of this Offering is subject to final acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.

Certain insiders of the Company may acquire securities under the Offering. Any participation by insiders in the Offering would constitute a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). However, the Company expects such participation would be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as the fair market value of the Units subscribed for by the insiders, and the consideration for the Units paid by such insiders, would not exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
