TORONTO, Dec. 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — VVC Exploration Corporation (“VVC” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:VVC) is pleased to provide an update on its ongoing financings from the previous update of December 15, 2017.

The Company wishes to extend, subject to the TSX Venture acceptance, the deadline for the final closing of a non-brokered equity private placement financing of up to CA$2 million (the “PP Financing”) from December 15 to December 20, 2017.  The first closing of the Private Placement occurred on October 31, 2017.

The Company also wishes to extend, subject to the TSXV acceptance, the deadline for the closing of a non-brokered convertible 3-year Debenture private placement financing of up to US$2 million (the “Debenture Financing”) from December 15 to December 20, 2017.  There has been no previous closing.

The Company is expecting to close from both private placements an aggregate of about $500,000. The proceeds of these Financings will be used for ongoing drilling program, maintenance fees and option payments on the Company’s Samalayuca Copper Project, and for fees and work related to its Cumeral and La Tuna projects in Mexico, general administration costs in Canada and Mexico and for working capital.
