Toronto, Ontario – December 15, 2021 – American Eagle Gold Corp. (AE: TSXV) ("American Eagle" or the "Company") would like to announce that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) of up to 7,142,857 flow-through units of the Company (the “FT Units”) at a price of C$0.14 per FT Unit for gross proceeds to the Company of C$1,000,000. Each FT Unit will consist of one common share of the Company to be issued as a “flow-through share” within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (each, a “FT Share”) and one half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share at a price of C$0.25 at any time two years from the closing of the Offering.
Proceeds from the Offering will be used for expanded exploration work at the Company’s recently purchased NAK project located in the Babine Copper-Gold Porphyry district in central British Columbia.
The gross proceeds from the issuance of the FT Shares will be used for “Canadian Exploration Expenses” (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada)) (the “Qualifying Expenditures”), which will be renounced with an effective date no later than December 31, 2021 to the purchasers of the FT Shares in an aggregate amount not less than the gross proceeds raised from the issue of the FT Shares. If the Qualifying Expenditures are reduced by the Canada Revenue Agency, the Company will indemnify each subscriber of FT Shares for any additional taxes payable by such subscriber as a result of the Company’s failure to renounce the Qualifying Expenditures.
