Mega Uranium Ltd. Announces Closing Of Flow-Through Financing
Toronto, Canada, March 14, 2011 – Mega Uranium Ltd. (“Mega”) (MGA: TSX) announces the closing today of its previously announced non-brokered flow-through private placement. Mega raised aggregate gross proceeds of $6,600,000 from the sale of 6,000,000 “flow-through” units, at a price of $1.10 per unit.
Each unit was comprised of one “flow-through” common share and one half of one non-flow-through common share purchase warrant of Mega. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to purchase one non-flow-through common share of Mega, at a price of $1.30, until expiry on March 14, 2013.
Mega paid an aggregate of $396,000 in fees and issued an aggregate of 360,000 compensation warrants to third parties who assisted in arranging for the sale of the units. Each compensation warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant of Mega, at a price of $1.10, until expiry on March 14, 2013. Each whole warrant will be exercisable for one common share of Mega, at a price of $1.30 per share, until expiry on March 14, 2013.
Insiders of Mega purchased an aggregate of 550,000 units under the private placement, representing approximately 9.2% of the total number of units sold.
The proceeds of the financing attributable to the flow-through shares will be used for exploration expenditures, as described below, which will constitute Canadian exploration expenses (as defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada)) and which will be renounced for the 2011 taxation year.
The company intends to use the proceeds for the exploration of Mega’s Canadian projects, including the Aillik and Mustang Lake projects in Labrador, and the Greenwich Lake project in Ontario.
