Toronto, Ontario, May 11, 2022 – Bald Eagle Gold Corp. (“Bald Eagle” or the “Corporation”) (TSXV: BIG) (OTCBQ: BADEF) is pleased to announce that it is undertaking a non-brokered private placement for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $2,300,000 (the “Offering”).
Pursuant to the Offering, the Corporation may issue up to 30,666,667 units of the Corporation (“Units”) at a price of $0.075 per Unit. Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of the Corporation (a “Common Share”) and one Common Share purchase warrant of the Corporation (a “Warrant”). Each whole Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.11 for a period of two years from the closing of the Offering. All securities issued under the Offering will be subject to a four month hold period from the closing date under applicable Canadian securities laws, in addition to such other restrictions as may apply under applicable securities laws of jurisdictions outside Canada.
The Corporation is also pleased to welcome Crescat Capital LLC (“Crescat”) as a lead strategic investor in the Offering. Crescat has agreed to purchase a total of 14,666,667 Units for gross proceeds of $1,100,000 (the “Crescat Investment”). Following completion of the Crescat Investment, Crescat has also been granted the right to participate in future financings of the Corporation so as to maintain its pro-rata interest (the “Participation Rights”). The Participation Rights will remain in effect as long as Crescat holds greater than 2% of the total issued and outstanding Common Shares.
Chris Paul, CEO and Director of the Company, commented: “We are happy to welcome Crescat Capital as a strategic shareholder and our first institutional investor in the Corporation. Crescat’s participation provides a strong vote of confidence in the Hercules Silver Project, as well as our team’s ability to explore and develop a high-grade silver asset within the underexplored silver jurisdiction of Idaho. We look forward to announcing our exploration plans for the project very soon, which is now backed by a fresh injection of capital and a new strategic shareholder.”
Quinton Hennigh, Geological and Technical Director for Crescat commented: “The Hercules Silver Project shows the characteristics of a large carbonate replacement deposit (CRD) system, which was never recognized by historical operators when the project was active during the 1960s-1980s. Over 300 shallow historical holes were drilled across the project, with strong silver, lead and zinc grades over significant intervals, demonstrating the presence of a robust mineralized system. The mineralized zones, defined only by shallow historical drilling, appear wide open for expansion, with very strong silver-in-soil grades along strike, over a total of 3.5 kilometers on surface. A new soil discovery announced this year looks to now extend the strike length of the mineralized host unit, underneath post-mineral basalt cover, to over 5.5 kilometers. Further encouragement is given by a 2-kilometer-long copper-gold-molybdenum soil anomaly, also newly-discovered this year, with individual soil grades ranging up to 3,000 ppm copper. The new porphyry-style copper anomaly may represent the high-level expression of an undiscovered porphyry system and feeder to the high-grade silver-lead-zinc CRD mineralization on the property. We are excited to be early investors in what appears to be a very large porphyry copper-CRD system at Hercules and look forward to working together with the Bald Eagle team on developing a drill plan for the upcoming exploration season.”
The proceeds of the Offering are anticipated to be used for exploration purposes, to test carbonate replacement deposit targets, test for a deeper porphyry target if permitting is approved, and for general working capital. Insiders of the Corporation may participate in the Offering. Bald Eagle does not anticipate paying any finder’s fees in connection with the Offering at this time.
