US COPPER CORP COMPLETES $2 MILLION PRIVATE PLACEMENT
TORONTO, CANADA, May 19, 2021 – US Copper Corp (“US Copper” or the “Company”) (TSX Venture: USCU) (Frankfurt: C73) is pleased to announce that it has completed a nonbrokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) for aggregate gross proceeds of $2,000,000. The Private Placement involved the issuance of 10,000,000 units (“Units”) at a price of $0.20 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital stock of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one half of one warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Common Share for $0.25 at any time within 2 years after closing. All securities issued pursuant to this Private Placement will be subject to a four-month hold period. As part of the Private Placement, the Company paid Finders’ fees of $13,800. The Private Placement remains subject to final acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange. Insiders of the Company acquired directly and indirectly a total of $160,000 worth of Units or 800,000 Units in the Private Placement on the same basis as other participants. The direct and indirect participation in the Private Placement by an insider of the Company constitutes a “related party transaction” as such term is defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company is relying on the exemptions from the formal valuation (section 5.5(b)) and minority approval requirements (section 5.7(1)(b)) under MI 61-101. A material change report in connection with the Private Placement will be filed less than 21 days before the closing of the Private Placement. The Company believes this shorter period is reasonable and necessary in the circumstances as the Company wished to complete the Private Placement in a timely manner.
The Company is currently preparing for its 2021 drill program to test its high priority targets as outlined in its August 11, 2020 press release and intends to use the proceeds of the Private Placement towards completing this drill program and for general working capital purposes.
