Vancouver, BC, Dec. 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — West Mining Corp. (“West” or the “Company”) (CSE: WEST) (OTC: WESMF) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Financing”), raising gross proceeds of $150,000 through the issuance of 3,000,000 units at a price of $0.05 per unit. Each unit consists of one common share and one transferable share purchase warrant, with each warrant entitling the holder to purchase one common share at an exercise price of $0.065 until December 15, 2025. Securities issued under the Financing are subject to a four month hold period in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws, which expires April 16, 2024.
The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Financing for general working capital. No finder’s fees were paid in connection with the Financing.
The Company also announces that it will not be proceeding with its previously announced settlement of $37,500 of debt owed to an arm’s length third party. The debt will remain on the Company’s books, and the Company and the third party intend to explore options to repay or otherwise settle the debt in early 2024.
Nader Vatanchi, the Company’s CEO, said “we are pleased to close this financing as we look ahead to next year. Management and the board of directors decided to limit the amount of the financing to $150,000 and to not proceed with the debt settlement in order to reduce dilution to existing shareholders. Management and the board of directors intend to consider a number of strategic initiatives in early 2024, including possibly a follow-on financing transaction and/or a debt settlement transaction. We look forward to providing further updates in due course.”
