Vancouver, BC – Agave Silver Corp. (“Agave” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: AGV; OTCQB: ASKDF) is pleased to announce the closing of the second tranche of its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) for total proceeds (including proceeds from the first tranche of the Private Placement) of $1,030,000. The Private Placement was entirely subscribed by insiders, directors and officers of the Company.
The Private Placement consisted of the issuance of 10,300,000 units of the Company (“Units”) at a price of $0.10 per Unit. Each Unit is comprised of one common share and one common share purchase warrant, each warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one additional common share at a price of $0.25 for a term of two years after closing.
In accordance with applicable securities legislation, securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement are subject to a hold period of four months plus one day from the date of completing the Private Placement.
Additionally, the Company is pleased to provide an update on its Kaslo Silver Property (“Kaslo” or “the property”). Kaslo has been a host to six high grade silver mines across the property in the first half of the last century. A recent site visit has suggested from old mine dumps that the banded sulphide mineralization is similar in all mines and has been traced for 14 km across the property. Agave is looking forward to a comprehensive report from Dr. Derek McBride P. Eng., our Qualified Person for NI 43-101 at Kaslo.
Agave has recently been able to advance the expiry date on Kaslo through the use of their company Portable Assessment Credits Account. This action gives security of tenure on the property for a further five years. The tenure will be advanced further with assessment reports arising from future work programs.
The Company is also pleased to announce that it intends to complete a flow-through private placement financing in the coming weeks. Common shares issued pursuant to the flow-through private placement will be 100% eligible for Canadian Exploration Expense (CEE) as defined by the Canadian Income Tax Act.
On behalf of the board of Agave Silver Corporation
