Update on Otterburn’s Acquisition of the Kainantu Gold-Copper Mine in Papua New Guinea
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – Sept. 29, 2014) – Otterburn Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:OBN) (“Otterburn” or the “Company”) provides the following update to its news release of August 25, 2014, wherein it announced its proposed RTO and private placement for a minimum of $10,000,000 through the issuance of 20,000,000 common shares at $0.50 per common share (the “Private Placement”) involving the acquisition of K92 Holdings International Limited (the “RTO”).
As the Private Placement will be raised in advance of closing the RTO, Otterburn has revised the terms of the Private Placement. Otterburn now proposes to sell subscription receipts to raise minimum proceeds of $10,000,000 through the issue of 20,000,000 subscription receipts at a price of $0.50 per subscription receipt. Each subscription receipt will entitle the subscriber to automatically receive, without payment of additional consideration and without further action on the part of the subscriber, and subject to adjustment, either: (i) one common share of Otterburn following closing of the RTO; or (ii) should the RTO fail to close, the return of the full amount of the subscriber’s funds without interest or deduction.
Otterburn is seeking to rely on an exemption to sponsorship for its RTO, as available under TSX Venture Exchange policies. As such, Otterburn has engaged Wolverton Securities Ltd. to act as agent, on a commercially reasonable efforts basis, in connection with raising $500,000 of its Private Placement on a brokered basis (the “Brokered Offering”). The Company will pay Wolverton a cash commission equal to 7% of the gross proceeds of the Brokered Offering, pay a corporate finance fee and reimburse Wolverton for its reasonable expenses incurred pursuant to the Brokered Offering.
Otterburn has received an initial draft independent technical report on the Kainantu Project, Papua New Guinea, from Mining Associates Pty Ltd of Australia; and will be submitting it shortly to the TSXV for preliminary review.
In accordance with TSXV policy, Otterburn’s common shares are currently halted from trading.
