Auryn and Eastmain announce completion of C$23 million equity financing
24 September 2020
Auryn Resources Inc. and Eastmain Resources Inc. (TSX: ER) (“Eastmain”) are pleased to jointly announce that Auryn has today completed the equity financing announced August 31, 2020 by raising C$23 million through the issuance of 7,750,000 subscription receipts (the “Subscription Receipts”). The bought-deal financing was co-led by Canaccord Genuity Corp. and Beacon Securities Limited. The Subscription Receipts will be exchanged for common shares of Fury Gold (as defined below) concurrently with the release of the escrowed proceeds from the sale of the Subscription Receipts as the final step of the previously announced plan of arrangement transactions pursuant to which Auryn is reorganized and acquires Eastmain (the “Transaction”). Under the Transaction, Auryn will acquire Eastmain after spinning out Auryn’s Peruvian assets into two new companies and distributing the shares of those new companies to Auryn shareholders. The Transaction will also create Fury Gold Mines Limited, a leading developer of Canadian gold projects. The sale of the Subscription Receipts fulfills a principal closing condition for the Transaction.
