April 13, 2018 – Thunder Bay, Ontario – Rockex Mining Corporation (“Rockex” or the “Corporation”) (CSE: RXM) is pleased to announce the closing today of a private placement (the “Private Placement”) of units (each a “Unit”) at $0.03 per Unit pursuant to which the Corporation issued a total of 4,272,264 Units to accredited investors for gross proceeds of $128,167.92. Rockex applied for and was granted an exemption to the Canadian Securities Exchange’s minimum price rule of $0.05 per security for the purchase price of the Units. Each Unit is comprised of one (1) Common Share and one-half (1/2) transferable warrant of the Corporation (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.05 per share at any time within 60 months after the issuance of the Units.
The following officers and directors of the Corporation (collectively, the “Insiders”) participated in the Transactions for an aggregate of 2,938,931 Units representing 3.59% of the Corporation’s issued and outstanding Common Shares on a partly diluted basis following the closing of the Private Placement:
The cash proceeds received by the Corporation from the sale of the Units will be used by the Corporation principally to improve its financial position, to pay the costs associated with this Private Placement and for general corporate expenses.
All of the securities issued pursuant to this Private Placement are subject to a four (4) month hold period.
The Private Placement is a “related party transaction” as such term is defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Corporation is relying on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements provided under MI 61-101 on the basis that participation in the Private Placement by insiders does not exceed 25% of the fair market value of the Corporation’s market capitalization.
