Battery Mineral Resources (TSX.V: BMR) (OTCQB: BTRMF), a battery minerals company providing shareholders exposure to the global megatrend of electrification, announced the first closing of its private placement. The placement includes senior unsecured convertible debentures totaling gross proceeds of $1,370,000; the company anticipates using the proceeds for working capital and the restart of copper concentrate production at its Punitaqui copper project in Chile. According to the announcement, the company is planning an additional closing with respect to the private placement.
The announcement also noted that Battery Mineral Resources is progressing toward securing the balance of the capital required for the restart; total capital required for the restart is forecast to be approximately $13 million, prior to corporate costs and other asset holding costs and inclusive of amounts to be raised in the private placement. “The advancement of the Punitaqui Project towards a resumption of mine operations and copper concentrate production is absolutely the right choice for our shareholders in terms of setting the stage for increasing shareholder value,” said Battery Mineral Resources CEO Martin Kostuik in the press release. “The first closing of the debentures offering and the consolidation of our existing debt is an important step towards enabling the restart.”
