Montreal, Quebec, November 28, 2017 – SRG Graphite Inc. (TSXV: SRG) (“SRG”, the “Company” or the “Issuer”) today announced that Coris Capital SA (“Coris”) has filed an early warning report (the “Report”) regarding the exercise of 2,625,000 share purchase warrants at a price of $0.50 per warrant share (the “Warrants”), thereby securing beneficial ownership of, or control and direction over an additional 2,625,000 common shares (the “Transaction”).
The Warrants were previously issued by way of private placement at which time Coris acquired the beneficial ownership of, or control and direction over 7,500,000 share units (“Units”) of SRG at a price of $0.40 per Unit, with each Unit consisting of one common share and one/half of one non-transferable share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant entitled the holder to purchase one common share under the terms of a subscription agreement for an aggregate purchase price of $0.40 and each Warrant entitled the Coris to acquire one common share at a purchase price of $0.50 for a period of 24 months following the closing date of the private placement.
The proceeds of the Transaction will be used to build an on-site laboratory to prepare graphite concentrate for potential offtakers. Funds will also be used to extend the current drilling program by an additional 6,000 meters.
