TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 14, 2014) - Superior Copper Corporation ("Superior Copper" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:SPC) is pleased to announce that it intends to complete a best efforts non-brokered private placement financing of hard dollar units ("HD Units") at a price of $0.15 per HD Unit, and flow-through common shares ("FT Shares") at a price of $0.15 per FT Share, for gross proceeds of up to $2,250,000 (the "Offering"). Each HD Unit will be comprised of one common share ("Common Share") and one-half common share purchase warrant ("HD Warrant"), with each HD Warrant being exercisable for one common share of the Corporation at an exercise price of $0.20 for a period of 24 months following the closing date of the Offering.
The securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a statutory four month and one day hold period. The proceeds of the Offering will be used for exploration and general working capital purposes. The proceeds received from the amount allocated to the FT Shares will be used to incur Canadian Exploration Expenses as defined by the Income Tax Act (Canada), and will be renounced with an effective date of no later than December 31, 2014.
It is anticipated that insiders of the Company and their joint actors may subscribe for up to 25% of the securities pursuant to the Offering. The participation of each insider will be subject to the approval of directors of the Company who are independent of that insider. Any such participation would be considered to be a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"). Since both the fair market value of the securities to be issued to insiders and the cash consideration to be paid for such securities will not exceed 25% of Superior Copper's market capitalization, the Company anticipates that the sale of securities to insiders pursuant to the Offering will be exempt from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101.
Use of proceeds will be to further develop and explore the Superior Project, Batchawana Bay, Ontario. A second drill rig will be active on the property as soon as possible.
The Offering is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSX-V") and applicable securities regulatory authorities. The Company anticipates closing as soon as practicable subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals.
