Crown Mining Announces Changes to Its Previously Proposed Non-Brokered Private Placement
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - April 1, 2020) - Crown Mining Corporation (TSXV: CWM) ("Crown" or the "Company") announces it has revised the terms and amount of its previously announced non-brokered private placement (See press release date February 20, 2020). Subject to regulatory approval, the Company intends to complete a non-brokered private placement (the "Offering") for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $200,000. The Offering will be comprised of up to 8,000,000 Units ("Units") at a price of $0.025 per Unit. Each Unit will consist of one common share and one full common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"), with each Warrant being exercisable at $0.05 for three years after closing subject to an acceleration clause. The Offering is being made subject to the grant of a discretionary waiver of the TSX Venture Exchange's ("TSXV") minimum $0.05 pricing requirement (the "Waiver"). The Offering is subject to a minimum $150,000 aggregate subscriptions. Subject to certain limitations discussed below, the Offering is open to all existing shareholders of the Company as well as pursuant to other available prospectus exemptions. The Offering is subject to TSXV final acceptance.
Assuming the Offering is fully subscribed, the Company intends to allocate the proceeds as follows: approximately $5,000 for current liabilities, $125,000 to keep its exploration properties in good standing for the next twelve months, $40,000 for general and administration expenses and $30,000 for general working capital purposes. The Company has not previously raised any amount under the $500,000 maximum discretionary waiver of the TSXV.
Although the Company intends to use the proceeds of the Offering as described above, the actual allocation of net proceeds may vary from the uses set forth above, depending on future operations or unforeseen events or opportunities. If the Offering is not fully subscribed, the Company will apply the proceeds of the Offering to the above uses in priority and in such proportions as the board of directors of the Company determine is in the best interests of the Company.
Depending on demand and regulatory requirements, a portion of the Offering may be made in accordance with the provisions of the existing shareholder exemption (the "Existing Shareholder Exemption") pursuant to OSC Rule 45-501. In addition to conducting the Offering pursuant to the Existing Shareholder Exemption, the Offering will also be conducted among close personal friends and business associates of directors and officers of the Company.
The Company has set April 3, 2020 as the record date (the "Record Date") for the purpose of determining shareholders entitled to purchase Units. The aggregate acquisition cost to a subscriber under the Existing Shareholder Exemption cannot exceed $15,000 unless the subscriber has obtained advice from a registered investment dealer regarding the suitability of the investment.
If subscriptions received for the Offering based on all available exemptions exceed the Offering amount of $200,000, subscriptions will be accepted at the discretion of the Company up to a maximum under the maximum discretionary waiver of $500,000 or on a pro rata basis, such that it is possible that a subscription received from a shareholder may not be accepted by the Company if the Offering is over-subscribed. In accordance with the Existing Shareholder Exemption, the Company confirms there is no material fact or material change related to the Company which has not been generally disclosed.
Existing shareholders of the Company are directed to contact the Company for further information concerning subscriptions for Shares pursuant to the Existing Shareholder Exemption, as follows:

Closing of the Offering is anticipated to occur on or before April 20, 2020, and is subject to receipt of acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange. All securities issuable will be subject to a four-month hold period following the closing of the Offering. A finder's fee of cash may be paid to eligible finders with respect to any portion of the Offering that is not subscribed by existing shareholders.
