Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – October 19, 2022) – Mink Ventures Corporation (TSXV: MINK.P) (“Mink” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV“) has conditionally approved its qualifying transaction (the “Qualifying Transaction“) with Voltage Metals Corp. (CSE: VOLT) (“Voltage“).

In connection with the Qualifying Transaction, the Company recently announced the commencement of a non-brokered private placement (the “Offering“) which is described in greater detail below.

Final approval of the Qualifying Transaction is subject to the Company meeting certain standard and customary conditions required by the TSXV, including the filing of a Filing Statement in respect of the Qualifying Transaction, the closing of the Offering and conversion of the Subscription Receipts into common shares and warrants, no material deterioration in the working capital of the Company, and the Company meeting the public distribution requirements of the TSXV.

The Offering: Hard Dollar and Flow-Through Subscription Receipts

The Offering will consist of both hard dollar subscription receipts (each, a “HD Subscription Receipt“) at a price of $0.14 per HD Subscription Receipt and flow-through subscription receipts (each, an “FT Subscription Receipt“) at a price of $0.17 per FT Subscription Receipt.

Mink will offer a minimum of 2,821,428 HD Subscription Receipts and a maximum of 4,285,714 HD Subscription Receipts for gross proceeds of $395,000, in the case of the minimum offering, and up to $600,000 in the case of the maximum offering. Each HD Subscription Receipt shall entitle the holder thereof to receive, upon the satisfaction or waiver of certain escrow release conditions (the “Escrow Release Conditions“) prior to the date that is 120 days from the closing of the Offering (the “Escrow Release Deadline“), including all conditions precedent to the Qualifying Transaction being satisfied, and without payment of additional consideration therefor, one (1) unit of the Company (each, a “Unit“). Each Unit will consist of one (1) common share and one (1) common share purchase warrant of the Company (each, a “Warrant“). Each Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to acquire one (1) common share of the Company for a period of thirty-six (36) months from the date of issuance at an exercise price of $0.20 for the first eighteen (18) months and an exercise price of $0.25 for the remaining eighteen (18) months.

Mink will also offer a minimum of 2,823,529 FT Subscription Receipts and a maximum of 3,529,411 FT Subscription Receipts for gross proceeds of $480,000, in the case of the minimum offering, and up to $600,000 in the case of the maximum offering. Each FT Subscription Receipt shall entitle the holder thereof to subscribe for, upon the satisfaction or waiver of the Escrow Release Conditions prior to the Escrow Release Deadline, and without additional consideration therefor, one (1) common share of the Company issued on a flow-through basis pursuant to a flow-through subscription and renunciation agreement.

The HD Subscription Receipts and FT Subscription Receipts will be offered pursuant to the terms of subscription receipt agreements to be entered into between Mink and Odyssey Trust Company as subscription receipt agent.

In connection with the Offering, finders may be paid a cash commission of 8% and a number of finder’s warrants equal to 8% of the subscription receipts sold to investors introduced by the finder, each such finder’s warrant entitling the holder to purchase one (1) common share of the Company for a period of thirty-six (36) months from the date of issuance at an exercise price of $0.20 for the first eighteen (18) months and an exercise price of $0.25 for the remaining eighteen (18) months.

The Offering will be marketed (i) to investors in each of the provinces of Canada on a private placement basis; (ii) to investors in the United States pursuant to available exemptions from the registration requirements of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended; and (iii) to investors resident in jurisdictions outside of Canada and the United States, in each case, in accordance with all applicable laws, provided that no prospectus, registration statement or similar document is required to be filed in such foreign jurisdiction. The Offering is expected to close on or about November 10, 2022, or such other date as the Company may determine. Closing of the Offering is subject to the approval of the TSXV.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy the Subscription Receipts in any jurisdiction, nor will there be any offer or sale of the Subscription Receipts in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. The Subscription Receipts have not and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act“), or any U.S. state securities laws and, therefore, may not be offered or sold to, or for the benefit or account of, persons within the United States or “U.S. persons” (as such term is defined in Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act) except pursuant to exemptions from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.

Upon completion of the Qualifying Transaction, the net proceeds of the Offering are anticipated to be used to fund the phase one work program on the Montcalm Ni-Cu-Co project and for general and administrative operating expenses.

All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a four month and one day statutory hold period running from the date of issue of the Subscription Receipts.
