Each Unit consisted of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”).

The proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to fund the summer 2018 exploration program at the Golden Culvert property and for other payments directly related to the property.

All securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement are subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus a day from the date of issuance in accordance with applicable securities legislation. Cash fees of $70,181 and 1,276,009 broker warrants were paid to Dundee Securities Ltd. in respect of the Private Placement. The broker warrants are exercisable for one common share at $0.055 for 18 months from the date of issue.

President and CEO R. Kim Tyler commented, “Closing this financing is great news for Stratabound shareholders as we are now fully funded to complete the first trenching and diamond drilling ever to be performed on the Golden Culvert Project.  We are extremely pleased that our confidence in the quality of the Project is shared with our new shareholders who have participated in the financing.  Contractors have been secured and mobilization of excavation equipment is scheduled to arrive at the Project during the last week of May.  Construction of the 2 km road to the work site is scheduled to commence the 1st of June.   Completion of the road and 750 metres of trenching and construction of diamond drill pads will require most of the month whereupon a minimum 600 metres of diamond drilling over six holes will follow.  Other plans include geological mapping, prospecting and continued soil sampling of the open-ended, 3 km +30 ppb gold-in-soil anomaly.  As we have indicated previously, a significant amount of the 24 km property strike length remains unexplored.”

Kim Tyler will be presenting the Golden Culvert Project at the TakeStock Investors Forum to be held in Calgary, Alberta at 12:00 pm on May 31st, 2018.
