September 26, 2017 (Source) — Further to its news releases of August 30 and September 7, 2017, GTA Resources and Mining Inc. (TSXV: GTA) announces it has closed on a second round of financing, with management expecting further interim closings over the next month or so.
In future tranches, GTA will continue to rely upon all prospectus exemptions that are available, including access to existing shareholders through the Existing Shareholder Exemption. This form of crowdfunding ensures all shareholders are treated equally and fairly.

This second round of Financing included the issuance of 700,000 Common Units and 900,000 Flowthrough Units, for total proceeds of $80,000 from only this round. A finder’s fee of $4,550 and 91,000 broker warrants was paid in relation to this round.

The net use of proceeds on the Financing, as announced on August 29, 2017, is for working capital and to fund exploration at GTA’s Big Duck Lake Gold Property in the Hemlo Gold Camp. Details of the highly prospective Big Duck Lake Gold Property are in the Aug 29/17 press release.
GTA has received conditional regulatory approval for the Financing. The Financing is open for subscription by GTA’s existing shareholders under the “Existing Shareholder Exemption”, an approved form of crowdfunding in Canada, and to non-shareholders under other prospectus exemptions.
Interested persons are encouraged to consult their own professional advisors for advice and assistance.
GTA also announces it has received proceeds of $69,916 from the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (“NOHFC”) on its previously approved grant under the Junior Explorer Assistance Program (“JEAP”). The highly successful JEAP program is managed by the Ontario Prospector Association, in support of deserving junior exploration companies who could augment the Northern Ontario economy.
This JEAP grant was related to GTA’s 2016 exploration program at its 54%-owned Northshore Gold Project, in Ontario’s world-famous Hemlo Camp. Part of that Northshore program included diamond drilling, the results of which returned (among others) an intersection of 4.1 grams per tonne of gold (“g/t Au”) over 23.0 metres (m), and of 5.7 g/t Au over 10.4 m (see GTA’s August 22, 2016 press release for details). This drilling further delineated the indicated resource described in GTA’s initial June 2014 report.
“GTA is grateful to NOHFC and the OPA for making the JEAP program a reality,” said Peter M. Clausi, GTA’s CEO. “JEAP is exactly the kind of program that makes a direct contribution to mining communities, junior explorers, First Nations and the mining industry in Ontario in general.”
