Boreal Upsizes Private Placement and Announces Shares for Debt Transactions

Vancouver, BC, July 30, 2020 /CNW/ - Boreal Metals Corp. ("Boreal" or the "Company") (TSXV: BMX) is pleased to announce that it is increasing its previously announced non-brokered private placement to approximately $3,000,000 (the "Private Placement"). The Company also announces proposed shares for debt transactions (the "Shares for Debt Transactions").

Private Placement Update

Under the increased Private Placement, up to 54,545,454 units of the Company ("Units") will be issued at $0.055 per Unit for total gross proceeds of up to approximately $3,000,000. Each Unit will consist of one common share (a "Common Share") and one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"), with each Warrant being exercisable for one additional Common Share at a price of $0.11 for a period of 24 months from the date of issue. 

In connection with the Private Placement, the Company will pay finders' fees to certain arm's length finders ("Finders") consisting of: (a) cash of up to 8% of proceeds raised under the Private Placement from subscribers introduced to the Company by such Finders; and (b) warrants in an amount equal to 8% of the number of Units acquired by subscribers introduced to the Company by such Finders. All securities issued under the Private Placement will be subject to a statutory hold period expiring four months and one day from the issue date. 

The proceeds of the Private Placement will primarily be used to continue exploration and drilling at the Company's 100% owned Gumsberg property, and for general working capital purposes.  The Private Placement is subject to TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") approval.    

Closing of the Private Placement is expected to occur on or about August 7, 2020. 

Shares for Debt Transactions

Pursuant to the Shares for Debt Transactions, subject to TSXV approval, the Company has also agreed to issue (i) an aggregate 2,305,273 ?Units to certain parties, as consideration for certain past services rendered, and (ii) an aggregate 7,326,473 Units to EMX Royalty Corporation ("EMX"), in order to satisfy certain indebtedness owing to EMX.  

Pursuant to the Shares for Debt Transactions, subject to TSXV approval, Patricio Varas, Executive Chairman and CEO of the Company, will receive 1,650,000 Units, Johannes Holzäpfel, of EMX, will receive 178,000 Units, and Richard Mills, of Northern Venture Group Ltd., will receive 477,273 Units; in all cases, as consideration for certain past services rendered to Boreal. EMX will receive, subject to TSXV approval, 7,326,473 Units, which will facilitate: ?(i) an immediate reduction in the principal amount of debt owed by the Company to EMX from $800,000 to $397,043.98, (ii) ?a 6-month extension of the maturity date applicable to the remaining balance of such debt, and (iii) EMX maintaining its current 12.89% ownership interest in the Company on a non-diluted basis, following completion of the Private Placement and Shares for Debt Transactions. 

Subject to TSXV approval, the Units to be issued pursuant to the Shares for Debt Transactions will be issued ?at a deemed price of $0.055 per Unit, with each Unit consisting of one Common Share and one Warrant bearing the same terms as the Warrants issued on the Private Placement. All securities issued under the Shares for Debt Transactions will be subject to a four month hold period from the date of issuance. 

The proposed issuance of securities to EMX as part of the Shares for Debt Transactions will be a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). A material change report will be filed under MI 61-101 less than 21 days before the closing date of the Shares for Debt Transactions. The Company believes this shorter period is reasonable and necessary in the circumstances as the Company wishes to improve its financial position by reducing its accrued liabilities as soon as possible. 

Closing of the Shares for Debt Transactions is expected to occur on or shortly after the closing date of the Private Placement.
