VANCOUVER - Sabina Gold & Silver Corp (the â€śCompanyâ€ť) (SBB - TSX) is pleased to announce the closing of the previously announced non-brokered private placement (the â€śFinancingâ€™). The offering was comprised of 3,355,500 flow-through common shares (the â€śFlow-Through Common Sharesâ€ť) at a price of $2.00 per share for gross proceeds of approximately $6.7 million.
â€śThis financing enables us to use flow-through dollars rather than the hard dollars allocated for continued development activities at Back River,â€ť said Bruce McLeod, President & CEO. â€śThis funding provides for an additional 10,000 meters at Back River to follow up on successes from this yearâ€™s spring program as well as last yearâ€™s program.â€ť
The total gross proceeds of the Financing must be used to incur Canadian exploration expenditures as defined by the Income Tax Act (Canada) by December 31, 2019.
Sabina Gold & Silver Corp.
Sabina Gold & Silver Corp. is well-financed and had approximately C$86.0 million in cash and equivalents as at March 31, 2018. The Company is an emerging precious metals company with district scale, advanced, high grade gold assets in one of the worldâ€™s newest, politically stable mining jurisdictions: Nunavut, Canada.
Sabina released a Feasibility Study on its 100% owned Back River Gold Project which presents a project that has been designed on a fit-for purpose basis, with the potential to produce ~200,000 ounces a year for ~11 years with a rapid payback of 2.9 years (see â€śTechnical Report for the Initial Project Feasibility Study on the Back River Gold Property, Nunavut, Canadaâ€ť dated October 28, 2015) (the â€śStudyâ€ť). At a US$1,150 gold price and a 0.80 (US$:C$) exchange rate, the Study delivers a potential after tax internal rate of return of approximately 24.2% with an initial CAPEX of $415 million.
The Project received its final Project Certificate on December 19, 2017. The Project is now in the final regulatory and licensing phase. The Project received its social license by signing a long-term land tenure and Inuit Impact and Benefits Agreement on April 22, 2018.
In addition to Back River, Sabina also owns a significant silver royalty on Glencoreâ€™s Hackett River Project. The silver royalty on Hackett Riverâ€™s silver production is comprised of 22.5% of the first 190 million ounces produced and 12.5% of all silver produced thereafter.
