Funding to support work programs to start Feasibility Study

TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / June 1, 2021 / Vanadium One Iron Corp. (“Vanadium One” or the “Company”) (TSXV:VONE) is pleased to announce that it has closed a $3.9 million non brokered private placement of non-convertible debentures (the “Private Placement”).

The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Private Placement to undertake additional work programs at its Mont Sorcier project as part of the initial phases of moving the project towards completing a full feasibility study, subsequent to the recent expansion of the overall resource as outlined in a press release on May 17, 2021. The work is anticipated to include undertaking baseline and other environmental studies, enhanced community engagement and other long lead time items.

Cliff Hale-Sanders, President and CEO, commented, “We are very pleased to have secured this funding on attractive terms which limit dilution. The proceeds will allow the Company to move aggressively to undertake the next steps in advancing the Mont Sorcier project. These funds, combined with the Financial Assistance Agreement recently concluded with Glencore, has positioned Vanadium One with a strong financial footing upon which to move forward and demonstrate the robust potential we see at the Mont Soricer project”.

Pursuant to the Private Placement, the Company issued 3,900 debenture units (each, a “Unit“) at a price of $1,000 per Unit for an aggregate principal of $3,900,000. Each Unit consists of $1,000 principal amount of 10% secured debentures (“Debentures“) and 2,380 non-transferable common share purchase warrants (“Debenture Warrants“), for an aggregate total of 9,282,000 Debenture Warrants. Each Debenture Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share of the Company (“Common Share“) at an exercise price of $0.42 per Common Share for a period of 36 months. The Debentures bear interest at a rate of 10.0% per annum and will mature 18 months from the date of issuance.

The Company has paid an arm’s-length finder a cash fee of $273,000 and issued to the finder 925,424 non-transferable common share purchase warrants (each a “Finder Warrant“). Each Finder Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one Common Share at a price of $0.295 per Common Share for a period of 36 months.

The Debentures are secured by way of a general security agreement in favour of the holder thereof granting a security interest in all of the assets of the Company. The Debentures will bear interest from the closing date at 10.0% per annum, payable quarterly in cash in arrears on the first days of June, September, December and March in each year. The first interest payment will be made on September 1, 2021 and will consist of interest accrued from and including the closing date to August 31, 2021. The Company will have the right to repay the principal amount owing under the Debentures at any time at a price of $1,050 per $1,000 principal amount of Debentures.

The Debentures, Debenture Warrants, Finder Warrants and any common shares issuable on exercise of the Debenture Warrants and Finder Warrants are subject to a statutory four-month hold period under applicable Canadian securities laws expiring October 1, 2021.
