Nevada Copper Announces Closing of Transformational Refinancing Transaction


VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nevada Copper Corp. (TSX:NCU) (“Nevada Copper” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that further to its press releases dated December 22, 2017 and January 12, 2018 in respect of the construction financing and recapitalization transactions announced therein, the Company has completed the private placement of 256,410,256 special warrants of the Company at a price of C$0.50 for aggregate gross proceeds of C$128,205,128.

Nevada Copper is now poised to transition to producer status at its Pumpkin Hollow project which is the only fully-permitted copper project of scale in the United States, comprising of two copper mines:

  • A high-grade underground mine with an existing production-size shaft and infrastructure (the “Underground Project”) with production targeted for 2019; and
  • A large-scale open pit project with resource upside and optionality to pursue a staged-development plan.

Net proceeds from the financing will allow for immediate resumption of the Underground Project development and construction activities, leading to first anticipated production in 2019. Concurrently, the Company will commence open pit resource extension drilling that will focus on the higher-grade North Deposit followed by open pit optimization of a staged open pit development focused on the North deposit.

The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, (the “U.S. Securities Act”) or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to U.S. Persons unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.
