Fancamp Exploration Ltd. Closes Non-Brokered Private Placement
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 21, 2012) - Fancamp Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:FNC) ("Fancamp" or the "Issuer") is pleased to announce the completion of the previously announced non-brokered private placement financing of 8,200,200 flow-through units ("FT Units") at a price of $0.165 per FT Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $1,353,033 (the "Offering"). Marquest Capital Markets (the "Finder") has been paid a cash commission equal to 6% of the gross proceeds of the Offering.
Each FT Unit will consist of one "flow-through share", as defined in subsection 66(15) of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the "Tax Act"), of Fancamp and one-half of a Warrant. Each whole Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to acquire one additional common share of the Issuer (on a non-flow-through basis) at a price of $0.25 until December 21, 2013. All securities issued bear resale restrictions until April 22, 2013.
The Issuer intends to use the proceeds raised from the issuance of the FT Units to incur additional exploration expenditures on the Issuer's properties in the province of Quebec. Such exploration expenditures will constitute "Canadian exploration expenses" and "flow through mining expenditures", as defined under the Income Tax Act (Canada), which can be renounced to Canadian purchasers of the FT Units for the 2012 taxation year. FT Unit investors who are eligible residents of Quebec will also be entitled to receive Quebec provincial tax credits for qualified exploration expenditures.
