Signature Resources Announces $3.5 Million Non-Brokered Private Placement Led by Commodity Discovery Fund, Funds Managed by Sprott Asset Management Lp & Crescat Capital
June 21, 2021
Toronto, Ontario, June 21, 2021. Signature Resources Ltd. (TSXV: SGU, OTCQB: SGGTF, FSE 3S3) ("Signature" or the "Company") is pleased to announce, subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, a non-brokered private placement of flow-through units (the ”FT Units”) and non-flow-through units (the “NFT Units”) for gross proceeds of up to C$3,500,000 (the “Offering”). Commodity Discovery Fund (“CDF”) out of the Netherlands has agreed to lead participation in the financing. This new interest from CDF was further bolstered by additional support from existing shareholders including funds Managed by Sprott Asset Management LP and Crescat Capital.
Each FT Unit is being offered at a price of C$0.165 and will be comprised of one common share of the Company and one-half non flow-through common share purchase warrant (a “FT Warrant”) with an exercise price of C$0.25 per FT Warrant. Concurrently, NFT Units will be offered at a price of $0.16 per NFT Unit consisting of one common share and one-half common share purchase warrant (a “NFT Warrant”) with an exercise price of C$0.22 per NFT Warrant. Both the FT Warrants and the NFT Warrants expire two-years following the closing date of the Offering.
The net proceeds from the Offering will be used for general corporate purposes but primarily used to expand the current exploration efforts focused on the Lingman Lake Gold Project (the “Project”). The Company now controls approximately 90% of the Lingman Lake greenstone belt in Northwestern Ontario, Canada.
“The Commodity Discovery Fund is a Dutch-based fund that seeks investment opportunities in new discoveries with a tier 1 potential, where early positions in undervalued companies are taken that are most likely to get taken over by producing companies seeking to replenish their reserves. The Signature project provides for precisely this outlook, in a known mining region hosting deposits with an interesting geological signature and mineralization. We feel the Signature Resources management team will be able to draw on its vast experience in order to advance the projects in order to create value for investors.”
Commodity Discovery Fund CEO Willem Middelkoop
“We are incredibly pleased to welcome Commodity Discovery Fund as our newest cornerstone investor. We aim to further bolster their performance track record of generating significant returns through an expanded drill campaign at the Lingman Lake Gold Project. Just as important, we greatly appreciate the additional support from existing shareholders. Long lead time items have been secured with a focus on positioning, de-risking, and executing an expanded exploration program to deliver value to shareholders.”
Robert Vallis – President, CEO, and Director
Signature is pleased to announce that it has secured a second Signature-owned diamond drill rig, continuing the expansion and de-risking of drilling capabilities. Signature is securing an expanded drill crew and has initiated securing the required camp optimizations to enable an upscaled targeted 10,000 metre diamond drill program commencing late August. Work has commenced on previously announced geophysical programs to optimize local and regional targeting. Normin Engineering continues to work on converting the existing dataset at the Project in preparation for completing our maiden NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate in 2022.

The Lingman Lake gold property consists of 1,434 staked claims, four free hold full patented claims and 14 mineral rights patented claims totaling approximately 27,448 hectares. The property hosts an historical estimate of 234,684 oz of gold* (1,063,904 tonnes grading 6.86 g/t with 2.73 gpt cut-off) and includes what has historically been referred to as the Lingman Lake Gold Mine, an underground substructure consisting of a 126.5-meter shaft, and 3-levels at 46-meters, 84-meters and 122-meters depths.
*This historical resource estimate is based on prior data and reports obtained and prepared by previous operators, and information provided by governmental authorities. A Qualified Person has not done sufficient work to verify the classification of the mineral resource estimates in accordance with current CIM categories. The Company is not treating the historical estimate as a current NI 43-101 mineral resource estimate. Establishing a current mineral resource estimate on the Lingman Lake deposit will require further evaluation, which the Company and its consultants intend to complete in due course. Additional information regarding historical resource estimates is available in the technical report entitled, "Technical Report on the Lingman Lake Gold Property" dated January 31, 2020, prepared by John M. Siriunas, P.Eng. and Walter Hanych, P.Geo., available on the Company's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com
