SASKATOON, Saskatchewan, Jan. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GFG Resources Inc. (TSX-V:GFG) (OTCQB:GFGSF) (“GFG” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has closed the second tranche of its non-brokered private placement (the “Concurrent Financing”) previously announced on December 11, 2017, for gross proceeds of C$2,745,000. The total gross proceeds raised in the Concurrent Financing was C$6,973,305.

In combination with the first tranche which closed on December 21, 2017, the Company issued a total of 5,460,555 flow-through common shares at a price of C$0.55 per share for gross proceeds of C$3,003,305 (the “FT Private Placement”) and 7,940,000 units at a price of C$0.50 per unit for gross proceeds of C$3,970,000 (the “Non-FT Private Placement”), with each unit consisting of one common share and one-half of a common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share at an exercise price of C$0.75 for a period of 24 months from their respective date of issuance.

Gross proceeds raised under the FT Private Placement will be used for exploration activities in Ontario that will qualify as “Canadian Exploration Expenses”. Net proceeds raised under the Non-FT Private Placement will be used for exploration activities at the Company’s projects in Wyoming and Ontario as well as for general working capital purposes. The securities issued pursuant to the Concurrent Financing are subject to a restricted period of four months and a day, from their respective date of issuance under applicable Canadian securities legislation.
