Each whole warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional non flow-through common share for three years at a price of $0.20 per share. The TSX Venture Exchange has conditionally accepted the private placements.
Goldeye may pay 7% cash commissions and broker warrants equal to 10% of the number of units subscribed for. Each broker warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional non flow-through common share for three years at a price equal to the subscription price of the units. All of the securities will be subject to a four month hold period.
The proceeds of the flow-through financing will be used for mineral exploration on Goldeye's Canadian mineral properties qualifying as Canadian Exploration Expense (CEE) under the Income Tax Act (Canada) enabling the subscriber to obtain applicable tax credits and deductions. The proceeds of the non-flow-through financing will be used to pay commissions and costs of private placements and to pay for general and administrative expenses and working capital. In particular, the proceeds of the financings will be used to further explore high grade gold mineralization at Goldeye's Tyrrell property.
Goldeye is also pleased to announced that it has signed an option agreement with Transition Metals Corp. whereby Transition will acquire a 100% undivided legal and beneficial interest in the Van Hise property in exchange for option payments of $40,000 over 3 years and a commitment to spend $250,000 in exploration and development over the same period. Goldeye's Van Hise property comprises 53 units over 6 claims and is adjacent to Transition's Haultain property where they recently announced drill intersections of 4.7 g/t Au over 3.1 m. and 82.5 g/t Au over 0.4 m. Goldeye will retain a 2% net smelter royalty.
Goldeye is a Canadian gold-focused exploration company with properties in mineral rich, politically secure jurisdictions with long traditions of mining. In Canada, Goldeye holds Todd Property in British Columbia and the Tyrrell, Gold Rock and Sandy Lake properties in Ontario. In Chile, Goldeye has the Sonia-Puma property north of Santiago.
Goldeye will focus on getting full value from its portfolio of excellent gold projects. On the Tyrrell project, the high grade Big Dome zone will be defined and expanded, the Hanging Wall zone will be explored at depth and on strike and the Hydro Creek zone will be defined and expanded. With regard to the Sandy Lake project, upon signing the exploration agreement with the Sandy Lake First Nation, an aggressive program of geological mapping and geophysics will be started, to be followed by diamond drilling during the winter season. The Gold Rock project is drill ready and a winter drill program is being formulated. The Sonia project in Chile is also drill ready and Goldeye is presently looking for a partner to continue the exploration of this property.
