In the first closing of the financing, Sego will issue 5,850,000 units at $0.05 per unit of Flow Through Units ("FTU") for gross proceeds of $ 292,500 and 8,440,200 units at $0.05 per unit of Non-Flow Through Units ("NFTU") for gross proceeds of $ 422,010. This issuance is subject to regulatory approval. Each FTU unit consists of one common share and one-half of one share purchase warrant. Each full FTU warrant entitles the holder to purchase an additional common share at $0.10 for two years from the date of closing of the first tranche of the private placement. Each NFTU consisted of one common share and one share purchase warrant. Each NFTU warrant entitles the holder to purchase an additional common share at $0.10 for four years from the date of closing of the first tranche of the private placement. The securities issued under this first closing are subject to the applicable statutory four month plus one day hold period from the date of issuance. Directors and Senior Officers of the Company have subscribed for FTU and NFTU in the first tranche of this financing totaling $290,510.
Finder's fees will be payable on a portion of the private placement and will consist of 7% cash and 7% Broker's Warrants, each Broker Warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for additional NFTU or FTU, as the case may be, at $0.05 for two years from the date of closing of the first tranche of the private placement.
The flow through proceeds will be expended on the continued exploration of the Company's Miner Mountain Copper-Gold Alkalic Porphyry project located near Princeton, BC. The non-flow through proceeds will be used for working capital and general corporate purposes. It is expected by the Company and its driller that the drilling program will begin on Miner Mountain on or about June 16, 2018. The Company fully expects to spend the funds as stated; there may be circumstances, for sound business reasons, where a reallocation of funds may be necessary.
