Vancouver, BC – June 1, 2021: Ameriwest Lithium Inc. (the “Company” or “Ameriwest”) (CSE: AWLI; FSE: 5HV0) is pleased to announce the closing of its previously announced (as to then $5,000,000) non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) pursuant to which the Company has now issued an aggregate of 12,083,000 units of the Company (each, a “Unit”), at a subscription price of $0.50 per Unit, for gross proceeds of $6,041,500.
Company COO, Glenn Collick, commented, “We are thrilled with the strong support shown from investors in our Private Placement which, after increased demand, we determined to increase from our initial announcement. This financing exemplifies the enthusiasm towards the discovery potential of our Clayton valley and Railroad Valley lithium projects. We are now strongly positioned to execute our exploration plans and look forward to continuing down the path of potentially discovering North America’s next lithium operation.”
Each Unit is comprised of one common share (each, a “Common Share”) and one non- transferable share purchase warrant (each, a “Unit Warrant”) of the Company, and each such Unit Warrant now entitles the holder thereof to acquire one additional common share of the Company (each, a “Warrant Share”) for a period of two years from the closing of the Private Placement at an exercise price of $0.75 per Warrant Share.
There were $250,725 in broker cash finders’ fees paid and 261,450 in broker warrants (each, a “Broker Warrant”) issued in connection with the completion of the Private Placement, and the Broker Warrants have the same terms and conditions as the Unit Warrants.
The proceeds of the Private Placement will continue to be used for the Company’s general corporate and working capital purposes.
The Common Shares, the Unit Warrants, and the Broker Warrants, together with any Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise thereunder, are now subject to a hold period of four months and a day from the date of closing in each instance.
