(TSXV: SAG) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that further to its press release of November 23, 2020, the Company has agreed with Stephen Avenue Securities Inc. (the “Agent”) to increase the size of the flow-though and charity flow-through portions of its “best efforts” private placement for gross proceeds (including the previously announced unit offering) of up to $3,750,864, through the issuance of additional flow-through units (each, a “FT Unit”) at a price of $0.35 per FT Unit and charity flow-through units (each, a “Charity FT Unit”) at a price of $0.39 per Charity FT Unit (the “Offering”).
Each FT Unit shall be comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company, issued on a flow-through basis (“FT Share”) and one common share purchase warrant (“Warrant”), issued on a non-flow-through basis, each Warrant entitling the holder thereof to acquire one additional non-flow-through common share of the Company at a price of $0.45 for a period of two (2) years from the closing date of the Offering.

All securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months from the date of issuance in accordance with applicable securities legislation. The gross proceeds from the sale of the FT Units and the Charity FT Units will be used by the Company to incur eligible “Canadian exploration expenses” that will qualify as “flow-through expenditures” as such terms are defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada).
The Offering is anticipated to close on or about December 11, 2020, or such other later date as the Company and the Agent may reasonably agree. The Offering may close in one or more tranches.
