Onyx Gold Announces $1.5 Million Private Placement

Published

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - February 26, 2024) - Onyx Gold Corp.  (TSXV: ONYX) (OTCQX: ONXGF) ("Onyx" or the "Company") is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement of securities for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $1,500,000 (the "Offering").

The Offering will be comprised of a combination of flow-through shares (the "FT Shares") to be sold at a price of $0.215 per FT Share and premium flow-through shares (the "Premium FT Shares") to be sold at a price of $0.27 per Premium FT Share. Each FT Share and Premium FT Share will qualify as a "flow-through share" within the meaning of subsection 66(15) of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the "Tax Act").

"The flow-through funds raised in this offering enables us to launch a 3,000 meter follow-up drill program on our Munro-Croesus property in Timmins, Ontario while preserving the Company's $3M hard dollar treasury of cash and marketable securities," said Brock Colterjohn, President & CEO. "By capitalizing on the winter months we can access certain drill sites while the ground is frozen, allowing for more favourable drilling orientations on the new GM Vein discovery. Additionally, we will drill the Argus Zone further towards the west, where our westernmost hole suggested that the zone is increasing in strength as it likely converges with the regional Pipestone Fault. The company is also planning a summer field program with these raised funds to generate and refine drill targets on our recently acquired Lalonde property, which is contiguous with our Munro-Croesus property."

The gross proceeds raised from the sale of the FT Shares and Premium FT Shares will be used for exploration activities in Ontario that will qualify as "Canadian Exploration Expenses" and "flow through mining expenditures" (as such terms are defined in the Tax Act), which will be incurred on or before December 31, 2025 and renounced with an effective date no later than December 31, 2024 to the initial purchasers of FT Shares and Premium FT Shares.

The Company may pay finders' fees comprised of cash and securities in connection with the Offering, subject to compliance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. All securities issued and sold under the Offering will be subject to a hold period expiring four months and one day from their date of issuance. Completion of the Offering and the payment of any finders' fees remain subject to the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
