Vancouver, February 12, 2019 – Tembo Gold Corp. (TSXV: TEM) (“Tembo” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement. The Company proposes to complete a non-brokered private placement (the “Financing”) consisting of 60,000,000 shares at a price of C$0.025 per share for total gross proceeds of C$1,500,000. Several key investors and insiders will continue to demonstrate their long-term support by participating in the Financing. The Shares will be subject to a four month and one day hold period from the date of issuance of the shares.
The proceeds raised from the Financing will be used to support commencement of pre-feasibility study activities including resource modeling utilizing existing extensive drill hole data. This includes extensive drill hole data, metallurgical testwork, preliminary process and mine design and financial modeling. The Financing will also cover corporate costs in Canada and Tanzania and be used for general working capital purposes. The Company may pay a finder’s fee in connection with the Financing in accordance with the policies of the TSXV, subject to the approval of the TSXV.
A number of discussions have been ongoing with potential production investment partners and it is anticipated that these will be greatly progressed once a resource has been modeled and a pre-feasibility completed.
The Financing remains subject to acceptance and approval by the TSXV, including a 2:1 share rollback.
David Scott, President and CEO of Tembo states, “We are very pleased to announce this financing. The Tembo Project remains the focus of the Company’s exploration efforts. The definition of a resource and completion of a pre-feasibility will constitute the first step towards fulfilling the Company’s initial goal of turning the project to account and de-risking the licences while generating free cash flow. This funding will ensure that the prospecting licence tenure remains secure while the company progresses the steps to initiate production through discussions with potential production joint venture partners.”
Simon Benstead, Director and CFO added: “With the support of insiders and commitment of management, Tembo Gold has been able to navigate less than favourable market conditions with prudent and disciplined asset allocation. For a multitude of reasons, the Board views this as an opportunistic time to move forward towards production. We aim to move rapidly to build upon the significant and very encouraging data that was assembled between 2012 and 2014 resulting from the $25mm USD drill program. We are confident we will create long-term shareholder value as we work to remove risk from the project over the next 12 months.”
