£1 million Fundraising

Landore Resources Limited (AIM:LND), is pleased to announce it has raised gross proceeds of £1m through a placing and subscription of 142,857,143 new Ordinary Shares at a price of 0.7 pence per new Ordinary Share with new and existing investors in the Company (the "Fundraising").

Highlights

A total of 112,142,856 new Ordinary Shares in the Company have been placed with institutional investors (the "Placing") and a total of 30,714,287 new Ordinary Shares in the Company were subscribed for by certain existing investors (together the "New Ordinary Shares"), together raising net proceeds of £1 million (C$ 1.72 million) at a price of 0.7 pence per New Ordinary Share (the "Issue Price"), a 4.11 per cent. discount to the closing mid-market price of an Ordinary Share on 30 May 2019 (the latest practicable date prior to this Announcement) being 0.73 pence.  

·      The New Ordinary Shares will represent, in aggregate, approximately 11.87 per cent. of the Company's enlarged issued ordinary share capital immediately following Admission.  

·      The net proceeds of the Fundraising will allow the Company to complete a 4,500 metre drilling programme to advance the Base Case in-pit mineralisation of 515,000 ounces gold to in-pit mineralisation of over 800,000 ounces gold, whilst also undertaking ground geophysics and geochemistry testing to define exploration targets along the strike from the BAM Gold Deposit.

·      The Fundraising will enable the Directors to continue to evaluate all options to maximise shareholder value, including a possible joint venture arrangement and provide sufficient working capital for a period of at least six months.

Cenkos Securities Plc ("Cenkos") is acting as Nominated Adviser and Sole Broker to the Company in connection with the Fundraising.

Commenting on the Fundraising, Chief Executive Officer of Landore Resources, Bill Humphries, said:

"We are delighted with the support from both new and existing shareholders. These funds will allow Landore to continue to grow the existing BAM Gold Resource and carry out a wider exploration programme along strike on other known gold prospects with the aim of establishing that the highly prospective Junior Lake Property has the potential to host a multi - million ounce gold deposit.

Landore will continue to evaluate all options to maximise shareholder value in the BAM Gold Deposit including possible joint venture opportunities.

The BAM Gold Project

Landore Resources is primarily focused on the development of its 100 per cent. owned Junior Lake property which is located in the province of Ontario, Canada, approximately 235 kilometres north-northeast of Thunder Bay. Its Junior Lake mining leases are host to the BAM East Gold Deposit, the B4-7 Nickel-Copper-Cobalt-PGEs resource, the VW Nickel resource and numerous other highly prospective mineral occurrences including three Lithium occurrences. The Junior Lake property is located in Ontario province, Canada, a politically secure and mining friendly location, one of the top 10 mining jurisdictions in the world, with Goldcorp Inc, Barrick Gold Corp and Detour Gold Corp all operating producing mines in the region.

On 20 February 2019, Landore Resources announced a technical report and preliminary economic assessment of the BAM Gold Project at the Junior Lake Property, completed by Cube Consulting Pty Ltd ("Cube"). The report was prepared in compliance with the requirements of the Canadian National Instruments 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101"). The mineral resource outputs of the report are detailed below:

The BAM Gold Project base case considers the economics of exploiting a resource of 12.7 Mt at 1.26 g/t Au containing 515 koz Au. An extended (or upside) case considers a 19.7 Mt resource also at 1.26 g/t Au containing 800 koz. Metallurgical recoveries of 95% are envisaged in both cases to yield respectively 489 koz and 760 koz.

The BAM Gold Project assumes the construction of a 2.2 Mtpa processing plant over 4 quarters followed by production periods of 5.75 years and 9.25 years respectively for base case and extended case.

The project assumes a constant dollar (i.e. real) gold price of $1,300/oz (this means gold price goes up at the rate of inflation in a nominal environment to maintain its real value).

The base case generates a post-tax net present value at 5% discount rate ("NPV5") of $69.2 M and post-tax real internal rates of return ("IRR") of 22.4%. The extended case generates a post-tax NPV5 of $123.7 M and post-tax real IRR of 26.9%.

The base case has an after-tax simple payback period of 3.5 years from start of production or 4.5 years from start of project. The all-in-sustaining cost ("AISC") during production is US$806/oz (real). Maximum drawdown is US$96.2 M (nominal) or US$95.0 M (real). The breakeven gold price on an after-tax basis is US$1,060/oz (real) and a price of US$1,415/oz (real) would provide an after-tax IRR of 30% showing the leverage to price. AISC does not include income taxes or Ontario Provincial Mining tax.

The extended case has a slightly higher AISC of US$816/oz (real). The higher cash cost in the extension case is due to mining costs in this case being the overall average of base case mining costs including initially capitalized costs - this is likely as more ore would require a pit cutback. The breakeven gold price on an after-tax basis is US$997/oz (real) and a price of US$1,348/oz (real) would provide an after-tax IRR of 30% continuing to reflect the leverage to price. AISC does not include income taxes or Ontario Provincial Mining tax.

Use of Proceeds

The Company is undertaking the Fundraising in order to commence with a scope of works for the BAM Gold Deposit, which has been verified by Cube in the Company's NI 43-101. There are three core elements to this planned work:

1.   complete a 4,500 metre drilling programme to advance the Base Case in-pit mineralisation of the existing BAM Gold deposit of 515,000 ounces gold to the Extended Case in-pit mineralisation of over 800,000 ounces gold;

2.   complete the ground geophysics and geochemistry to define exploration targets along strike from the BAM Gold Deposit; and

3.   advance the Inferred mineralisation in the current resource to Indicated status.

 

Accordingly, the Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Fundraising as below:

Information on the Fundraising

The Fundraising will raise gross proceeds of approximately £1 million through the issue by the Company of 112,142,856 Placing Shares and 30,714,287 Subscription Shares at a price of 0.7 per share. The Issue Price of 0.7 pence is equivalent to a 4.11 per cent. discount to the closing mid-market price of an Ordinary Share on 30 May 2019 (the latest practicable date prior to the announcement of the Fundraising) being 0.73 pence.

 

The Fundraising is conditional, inter alia, upon:

The New Ordinary Shares represent, in aggregate, approximately 13.66 per cent. of the Existing Ordinary Shares and will represent approximately 11.87 per cent. of the enlarged share capital of the Company upon Admission.

The Placing Agreement contains customary warranties given by the Company to Cenkos as to matters relating to the Group and its business and a customary indemnity given by the Company to Cenkos in respect of liabilities arising out of or in connection with the Fundraising. Cenkos is entitled to terminate the Placing Agreement in certain limited circumstances prior to Admission, including circumstances where any of the warranties are found not to be true or accurate or were misleading in any respect or the occurrence of certain force majeure events. 

The New Ordinary Shares are not being made available to the public and are not being offered or sold in any jurisdiction where it would be unlawful to do so.

William Humphries, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, has subscribed directly with the Company to purchase 2,857,143 Ordinary Shares at the Issue Price. Following this subscription, Mr. Humphries will have a beneficial interest in 73,501,262 Ordinary Shares in the Company, representing approximately 6.11 per cent. of the enlarged issued share capital of the Company on Admission.

Richard Prickett, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, has subscribed directly with the Company to purchase 1,428,572 Ordinary Shares at the Issue Price. Following this subscription, Mr. Prickett will have a beneficial interest in 14,823,448 Ordinary Shares in the Company, representing approximately 1.23 per cent. of the enlarged issued share capital of the Company on Admission.

Helen Green, a Non-Executive Director of the Company, has subscribed directly with the Company to purchase 1,428,572 Ordinary Shares at the Issue Price. Following this subscription, Mrs. Green will have a beneficial interest in 4,286,155 Ordinary Shares in the Company, representing approximately 0.36 per cent. of the enlarged issued share capital of the Company on Admission.

 

 

 

Related Party Transaction

Canaccord Genuity Group Inc, a substantial shareholder of the Company, has agreed to subscribe for 50,000,000 Ordinary Shares at the Issue Price through the Fundraising. Following this placing, Canaccord Genuity Group Inc will have a beneficial interest in 194,336,378 Ordinary Shares in the Company, representing approximately 16.15 per cent. of the enlarged issued share capital of the Company on Admission.

Canaccord Genuity Group Inc is a substantial shareholder of the Company and is a related party for the purposes of the AIM Rules for Companies. The independent directors consider, having consulted with the Company's nominated adviser, Cenkos, that the terms of Canaccord Genuity Group Inc's participation in the Fundraising are fair and reasonable insofar as Shareholders are concerned.

Cenkos Shares and Cenkos Warrants

In consideration of Cenkos' services in connection with the Placing, the Company has agreed to allot and issue the Cenkos Shares and the Cenkos Warrants to Cenkos. Pursuant to the terms of the Warrant Instrument, the Cenkos Warrants are exercisable at a price of 0.875 pence per Ordinary Share at any time during the exercise period of two years following the date of the Company's annual general meeting.

Admission

Application has been made to the London Stock Exchange for the New Ordinary Shares and the Cenkos Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM. It is currently expected that Admission will become effective, and that dealings in the New Ordinary Shares will commence on AIM, at 8.00 a.m. on 6 June 2019 ("Admission"). The New Ordinary Shares and the Cenkos Shares will, when issued, rank pari passu with the Existing Ordinary Shares.

Following Admission, the Company's issued share capital will consist of 1,203,058,636 Ordinary Shares with voting rights. Landore Resources does not hold any Ordinary Shares in treasury.

Following Admission, the aforementioned figure of 1,203,058,636 Ordinary Shares may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, Landore Resources under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.

Details of the Placing Agreement and the Placing Shares

Cenkos has today entered into a placing agreement (the "Placing Agreement") with the Company under which, on the terms and subject to the conditions set out in the Placing Agreement, Cenkos as agent and broker for and on behalf of the Company, has agreed to use its reasonable endeavours to procure Placees for the Placing Shares at the Issue Price.  The Placing is conditional upon, amongst other things, Admission becoming effective and the Placing Agreement becoming unconditional and not being terminated in accordance with its terms.

The Placing Shares will, when issued, be subject to the articles of incorporation of the Company and credited as fully paid and will rank pari passu in all respects with the Existing Ordinary Shares in the capital of the Company, including the right to receive all dividends and other distributions declared, made or paid in respect of such Ordinary Shares after the date of issue of the Placing Shares.

Application for admission to trading

Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange for admission of the Placing Shares to trading on AIM.

Subject to, amongst other things, the Placing Agreement becoming unconditional and not being terminated in accordance with its terms, it is expected that Admission will take place no later than 8.00 a.m. on 6 June 2019 and that dealings in the Placing Shares on AIM will commence at the same time.

Principal terms of the Placing

1             Cenkos is acting as nominated adviser and broker to the Placing, as agent for and on behalf of the Company.  Cenkos is authorised and regulated in the United Kingdom by the Financial Conduct Authority ("FCA") and is acting exclusively for the Company and no one else in connection with the matters referred to in this Announcement and will not be responsible to anyone other than the Company for providing the protections afforded to its customers or for providing advice in relation to the matters described in this Announcement. 

2             Participation in the Placing will only be available to persons who may lawfully be, and are, invited by Cenkos to participate.  Cenkos and any of its affiliates are entitled to participate in the Placing.

3             The Issue Price will be a fixed price of 0.7 pence per Placing Share.  No commissions will be paid to Placees or by the Placees in respect of any Placing Shares.

4             Each Placee's allocation has been confirmed to Placees orally by Cenkos, and a contract note has been despatched by Cenkos to each Placee.  The oral confirmation to such Placee constitutes an irrevocable, legally binding commitment upon such person (who will at that point became a Placee), in favour of Cenkos and the Company, under which it agreed to acquire the number of Placing Shares allocated to it at the Issue Price on the terms and conditions set out in this Appendix and in accordance with the Company's articles of incorporation. Except with Cenkos' written consent, such commitment is not capable of variation or revocation at the time at which it is submitted.

5             Each Placee's allocation and commitment has also been evidenced by a form of confirmation issued to such Placee by Cenkos. The terms of this Appendix are deemed incorporated in that form of confirmation.

6             Each Placee will have an immediate, separate, irrevocable and binding obligation, owed to Cenkos (as agent for the Company), to pay to it (or as it may direct) in cleared funds an amount equal to the product of the Issue Price and the number of Placing Shares such Placee has agreed to acquire and the Company has agreed to allot and issue to that Placee.

7             Irrespective of the time at which a Placee's allocation(s) pursuant to the Placing were confirmed, settlement for all Placing Shares to be acquired pursuant to the Placing will be required to be made at the same time, on the basis explained below under "Registration and Settlement".

8             All obligations of Cenkos under the Placing will be subject to fulfilment of the conditions referred to below under "Conditions of the Placing" and to the Placing not being terminated on the basis referred to below under "Termination of the Placing".

9             By participating in the Placing, each Placee has agreed that its rights and obligations in respect of the Placing will terminate only in the circumstances described below and will not be capable of rescission or termination by the Placee.

10           To the fullest extent permissible by law and applicable FCA rules, none of (a) Cenkos, (b) any of Cenkos' respective affiliates, agents, directors, officers, consultants, (c) to the extent not contained within (a) or (b), any person connected with any of Cenkos as defined in the FSMA ((b) and (c) being together "affiliates" and individually an "affiliate" of Cenkos), (d) any person acting on any of Cenkos' behalf, shall have any liability (including to the extent permissible by law, any fiduciary duties) to Placees or to any other person whether acting on behalf of a Placee or otherwise.  In particular, neither Cenkos nor any of its respective affiliates shall have any liability (including, to the extent permissible by law, any fiduciary duties) in respect of their conduct of the Placing or of such alternative method of effecting the Placing as Cenkos and the Company may agree.

Registration and Settlement

Participation in the Placing is only available to persons who are invited to participate in it by Cenkos.

Each Placee allocated Placing Shares in the Placing has been sent a contract note stating the number of Placing Shares allocated to it at the Issue Price, the aggregate amount owed by such Placee to Cenkos (as agent for the Company) and settlement instructions.

Each Placee agrees that it will do all things necessary to ensure that delivery and payment is completed as directed by Cenkos in accordance with either the standing CREST or certificated settlement instructions which they have in place with Cenkos.

Settlement of transactions in the Placing Shares (ISIN: GB00B06VJ325) following Admission will take place within the CREST system, subject to certain exceptions.  Settlement through CREST is expected to take place on 6 June 2019 unless otherwise notified by Cenkos and Admission is expected to occur no later than 8.00 a.m. on 6 June 2019 unless otherwise notified by Cenkos. Admission and Settlement may occur at an earlier date, which if achievable, will be notified through a Regulatory Information Service. Settlement will be on a delivery versus payment basis.  However, in the event of any difficulties or delays in the admission of the Placing Shares to CREST or the use of CREST in relation to the Placing, the Company and Cenkos may agree that the Placing Shares should be issued in certificated form.  Cenkos reserve the right to require settlement for the Placing Shares, and to deliver the Placing Shares to Placees, by such other means as they deem necessary if delivery or settlement to Placees is not practicable within the CREST system or would not be consistent with regulatory requirements in a Placee's jurisdiction.

Interest is chargeable daily on payments not received from Placees on the due date in accordance with the arrangements set out above, in respect of either CREST or certificated deliveries, at the rate of 2 percentage points above prevailing LIBOR as determined by Cenkos.

Each Placee has agreed that if it does not comply with these obligations, Cenkos may sell any or all of their Placing Shares on their behalf and retain from the proceeds, for Cenkos' own account and benefit, an amount equal to the aggregate amount owed by the Placee plus any interest due.  The relevant Placee will, however, remain liable for any shortfall below the amount owed by it and for any stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax (together with any interest or penalties) which may arise upon the sale of their Placing Shares on their behalf.

If Placing Shares are to be delivered to a custodian or settlement agent, Placees must ensure that, upon receipt, the conditional form of confirmation is copied and delivered immediately to the relevant person within that organisation.  Insofar as Placing Shares are registered in a Placee's name or that of its nominee or in the name of any person for whom a Placee is contracting as agent or that of a nominee for such person, such Placing Shares should, subject as provided below, be so registered free from any liability to United Kingdom stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax.  Placees will not be entitled to receive any fee or commission in connection with the Placing.

Conditions of the Placing

The Placing is conditional upon the Placing Agreement becoming unconditional and not having been terminated in accordance with its terms.

The obligations of Cenkos under the Placing Agreement are, and the Placing is, conditional upon, inter alia:

(a)           Admission occurring by not later than 8.00 a.m. on 6 June 2019 (or such later date as the Company and Cenkos may agree in writing, in any event being not later than 8.00 a.m. on 20 June 2019);

(b)          the performance by the Company of its obligations under the Placing Agreement to the extent that they fall to be performed prior to Admission;

(c)           in the opinion of Cenkos, acting in good faith, none of the warranties or undertakings on the part of the Company contained in the Placing Agreement being or having become untrue, inaccurate or misleading at any time before Admission;

(d)          there being no development or event prior to Admission of which Cenkos was unaware when entering into the Placing Agreement which in the opinion of Cenkos, acting in good faith, would require a supplementary press announcement;

(e)           Cenkos' obligations under the Placing Agreement not being terminated in accordance with its terms,

(all conditions to the obligations of Cenkos included in the Placing Agreement being together, the "conditions").

If any of the conditions set out in the Placing Agreement are not fulfilled or, where permitted, waived in accordance with the Placing Agreement within the stated time periods (or such later time and/or date as the Company and Cenkos may agree, provided that the time for satisfaction of the condition set out in (a) above shall not be extended beyond 8.00 a.m. on 20 June 2019), or the Placing Agreement is terminated in accordance with its terms, the Placing will lapse and the Placee's rights and obligations shall cease and terminate at such time and each Placee agrees that no claim can be made by or on behalf of the Placee (or any person on whose behalf the Placee is acting) in respect thereof.

By participating in the Placing, each Placee agrees that its rights and obligations cease and terminate only in the circumstances described above and under "Termination of the Placing" below and will not be capable of rescission or termination by it.

Certain conditions may be waived in whole or in part by Cenkos, in their absolute discretion by notice in writing to the Company and Cenkos may also agree in writing with the Company to extend the time for satisfaction of any condition. Any such extension or waiver will not affect Placees' commitments as set out in this Announcement.

Cenkos may terminate the Placing Agreement in certain circumstances, details of which are set out below.

Neither Cenkos, the Company nor any of their respective affiliates, agents, directors, officers, employees shall have any liability to any Placee (or to any other person whether acting on behalf of a Placee or otherwise) in respect of any decision any of them may make as to whether or not to waive or to extend the time and/or date for the satisfaction of any condition to the Placing nor for any decision any of them may make as to the satisfaction of any condition or in respect of the Placing generally and by participating in the Placing each Placee agrees that any such decision is within the absolute discretion of Cenkos.

Termination of the Placing

Cenkos may terminate the Placing Agreement, in accordance with its terms, at any time prior to Admission if, inter alia:

1             it comes to the attention of Cenkos that any of the warranties were not true or accurate, or were misleading when given or deemed given; or

2             it comes to the attention of Cenkos that the Company has failed to comply with its obligations under the Placing Agreement which is material in the context of the Placing; or

3             it comes to the attention of Cenkos that any statement contained in the Issue Documents has become or been discovered to be untrue, inaccurate or misleading; or

4             there has occurred, in the opinion of Cenkos (acting in good faith), any material adverse change in the financial position or prospects or business of the Company and its subsidiary undertakings (taken as whole); or

5             there has occurred a force majeure event which, in the opinion of Cenkos, will or is likely to be prejudicial to the Placing or (acting in good faith) Admission or to the subscription for Placing Shares by Placees.

If the Placing Agreement is terminated in accordance with its terms, the rights and obligations of each Placee in respect of the Placing as described in this Announcement shall cease and terminate at such time and no claim can be made by any Placee in respect thereof.

By participating in the Placing, each Placee agrees with the Company and Cenkos that the exercise by the Company or Cenkos of any right of termination, waiver or any condition or decision to extend or not the time for satisfaction of any condition or any other right or other discretion under the Placing Agreement shall be within the absolute discretion of the Company or Cenkos and that neither of the Company nor Cenkos need make any reference to such Placee and that neither Cenkos, the Company, nor any of their respective affiliates, agents, directors, officers or employees shall have any liability to such Placee (or to any other person whether acting on behalf of a Placee or otherwise) whatsoever in connection with any such exercise.

By participating in the Placing, each Placee agrees that its rights and obligations terminate only in the circumstances described above and under the "Conditions of the Placing" section above and will not be capable of rescission or termination by it after the issue by Cenkos of a form of confirmation confirming each Placee's allocation and commitment in the Placing.

If within a reasonable time after a request for verification of identity Cenkos (for themselves and as agent on behalf of the Company) or the Company's Registrars have not received evidence satisfactory to them, Cenkos and/or the Company may, at its absolute discretion, terminate its commitment in respect of the Placing, in which event the monies payable on acceptance of allotment will, if already paid, be returned without interest to the account of the drawee's bank from which they were originally debited;

35           time is of the essence as regards its obligations under this Appendix;

36           any document that is to be sent to it in connection with the Placing will be sent at its risk and may be sent to it at any address provided by it to Cenkos;

By participating in the Placing, each Placee (and any person acting on such Placee's behalf) agrees to indemnify and hold the Company, Cenkos and each of their respective affiliates, agents, directors, officers and employees harmless from any and all costs, claims, liabilities and expenses (including legal fees and expenses) arising out of or in connection with any breach of the representations, warranties, acknowledgements, agreements and undertakings given by the Placee (and any person acting on such Placee's behalf) in this Announcement or incurred by Cenkos, the Company or each of their respective affiliates, agents, directors, officers or employees arising from the performance of the Placee's obligations as set out in this Announcement, and further agrees that the provisions of this Announcement shall survive after the completion of the Placing.

The agreement to allot and issue Placing Shares to Placees (or the persons for whom Placees are contracting as agent) free of stamp duty and stamp duty reserve tax in the United Kingdom relates only to their allotment and issue to Placees, or such persons as they nominate as their agents, direct by the Company.  Such agreement assumes that the Placing Shares are not being acquired in connection with arrangements to issue depositary receipts or to transfer the Placing Shares into a clearance service.  If there are any such arrangements, or the settlement related to any other dealings in the Placing Shares, stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax may be payable.  In that event, the Placee agrees that it shall be responsible for such stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax and neither the Company nor Cenkos shall be responsible for such stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax.  If this is the case, each Placee should seek its own advice and they should notify Cenkos accordingly. In addition, Placees should note that they will be liable for any capital duty, stamp duty and all other stamp, issue, securities, transfer, registration, documentary or other duties or taxes (including any interest, fines or penalties relating thereto) payable outside the United Kingdom by them or any other person on the acquisition by them of any Placing Shares or the agreement by them to acquire any Placing Shares and each Placee, or the Placee's nominee, in respect of whom (or in respect of the person for whom it is participating in the Placing as an agent or nominee) the allocation, allotment, issue or delivery of Placing Shares has given rise to such non-United Kingdom stamp, registration, documentary, transfer or similar taxes or duties undertakes to pay such taxes and duties, including any interest and penalties (if applicable), forthwith and to indemnify on an after-tax basis and to hold harmless the Company and Cenkos in the event that either the Company and/or Cenkos has incurred any such liability to such taxes or duties.

The representations, warranties, acknowledgements and undertakings contained in this Announcement are given to Cenkos for itself and on behalf of the Company and are irrevocable.

Each Placee and any person acting on behalf of the Placee acknowledges that Cenkos do not owe any fiduciary or other duties to any Placee in respect of any representations, warranties, undertakings, acknowledgements, agreements or indemnities in the Placing Agreement.

Each Placee and any person acting on behalf of the Placee acknowledges and agrees that Cenkos may (at their absolute discretion) satisfy their obligations to procure Placees by itself agreeing to become a Placee in respect of some or all of the Placing Shares or by nominating any connected or associated person to do so.

When a Placee or any person acting on behalf of the Placee is dealing with any of Cenkos, any money held in an account with Cenkos on behalf of the Placee and/or any person acting on behalf of the Placee will not be treated as client money within the meaning of the relevant rules and regulations of the FCA made under FSMA.  Each Placee acknowledges that the money will not be subject to the protections conferred by the client money rules: as a consequence this money will not be segregated from Cenkos' money (as applicable) in accordance with the client money rules and will be held by it under a banking relationship and not as trustee.
