Sherman Dahl, CEO comments:
“The entire SKRR team looks forward to continued discovery success in 2021. We are well funded for the current drilling within the discovery zone of the Olson project, and assays are pending on the exciting Leland project, which is in close proximity to the SSR Mining/Taiga Gold Fisher project. In addition, gold is back on investors radar as an asset class, as it should be. Gold seemed irrelevant for many a few weeks ago; there was more action in other sectors. Gold is back as a player on the field again, after being benched for a while. The closing of this current financing demonstrates the commitment of our retail and institutional investors towards the SKRR team and gold discovery in the underexplored Saskatchewan Trans Hudson Corridor.”
All securities issued in connection with the FT Private Placement and the Private Placement are subject to a four month hold period from the closing date in accordance with applicable securities laws. In connection with the FT Private Placement and the Private Placement, the Company paid aggregate cash finder’s fees of $119,944.28 and issued 353,500 non-transferable compensation options exercisable for the purchase of Units at $0.27 per Unit for a period of twenty-four (24) months from the date of closing.
