Montero Mining (MON) is looking to raise up to C$2.1 million to fund exploration work at its gold project in Chile.
Under the terms of the offering, the Toronto-based junior exploration company intends to issue 14 million units at a price of $0.15 each. These units will be comprised of one common share in Montero and one-half of a common share purchase warrant.
Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to acquire an additional common share at a price of $0.25, exercisable over a period of 24 months from the date of issuance.
However, should the company’s shares trade at or above a price of $0.50 for a period of 10 consecutive trading days on the TSX Venture Exchange, the expiry date of the warrants may be brought forward.
Montero says the proceeds will be used to fund exploration activities at its gold projects in Chile, as well as for general corporate and working capital purposes.
The company currently holds the 6,731-hectare Isabella Gold Project, located 125 kilometres south-east of Yamana’s Minera Florida Mine. The region hosts a number of gold occurrences but has been the subject of little modern exploration activities to date.
Montero’s financing follows the recent appointment of Jean Des Rivieres to the company’s Board of Directors, which was revealed on October 26. A professional geologist, Jean has spent that last 23 years with BHP, working in Chile in 2002 and from 2005 until 2019.
Tony Harwood, President of Montero Mining, said he is delighted to for Jean to be joining the company’s Board.
“Jean’s experience evaluating greenfield projects globally for BHP reinforces Montero’s belief that our Isabella gold project in the southern coastal range of Chile has the potential to host a tier one gold deposit,” he added.
