Each Unit consists of one common share and one common share purchase Warrant (the “Warrant”).
Each Warrant, whether acquired as part of a Flow-Through Unit or Unit, entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the Issuer at a price of $0.25 per share until the second anniversary of the issuance of the Warrants and a price of $0.30 per share thereafter until the third anniversary of the issuance of the Warrants.
In connection with closing the Offering, the Company may pay, in accordance with the policies and subject to regulatory approval, aggregate cash finder’s fees of $63,032 and issue certain Finders 332,440 non-transferable Finder’s Warrants. Each of the Finder’s Warrants entitles the Finder to purchase one common share of the Issuer at a price of $0.25 per share until the second anniversary of the issuance of the Warrants and a price of $0.30 per share thereafter until the third anniversary of the issuance of the Warrants.
The Offering, and any modifications to it, are subject to compliance with applicable securities laws and to receipt of the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”). All securities issued under the Offering are subject to a statutory four-month hold period.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for expenditures on its properties located in Cranbrook, British Columbia and for general working capital. The gross proceeds from the issuance of the Flow-Through Shares shall be used to fund exploration expenditures on the Cranbrook Properties and will qualify as Canadian exploration expenses (as defined in the “Income Tax Act (Canada)”).
PJX plans to drill and explore for Sullivan type or Broken Hill type zinc-lead-silver mineralization on the Vine Property and gold targets on the Zinger, Dewdney Trail, Eddy and Gold Shear Properties. The properties are all road accessible and close to rail, power and an experienced workforce.
Drilling is planned to commence on the Vine Property in mid-January, 2019. Magnetotellurics (MT) geophysics has identified a large target at depth and smaller targets near surface that Management believe could represent folded massive sulphide bodies containing zinc-lead and possibly copper mineralization (see December 5, 2018 press release).
The large MT anomaly can be traced for 800 metres (m) horizontally along strike. The sub-vertical anomaly starts at about 600m deep and can be traced down dip to the west to a depth of at least 2 kilometres (km). Modelling of gravity data suggests the potential for large dense bodies of massive sulphide at depths equivalent to the MT anomaly.
“The large MT target is comparable in area to the Sullivan zinc-lead deposit.” states the President and CEO of PJX, John Keating. “The newly discovered and untested shallow and deep MT targets appear to occur down-dip and on strike of anomalous zinc and lead mineralization intersected by PJX’s drilling to date. Some massive sulphide deposits are conductive enough to produce MT anomalies, while others have enough density contrast with surrounding rocks to be able to produce gravity anomalies. Having both types of anomalies strengthens the probability for massive sulphide mineralization in the target area.”
The Vine Property is at an elevation that can be drilled 12 months of the year. Gold exploration on the Zinger, Gold Shear, Eddy and Dewdney Trail Properties is planned to commence when weather permits.
The Sullivan Mine, located about 35 km north of the Vine Property, operated for over 90 years before being closed in 2001. Zinc and lead concentrates were transported by rail from the Sullivan mine through the Vine Property to Teck’s Trail Metallurgical Complex. Some 8 million tonnes of zinc, 9 million tonnes of lead, and over 285 million ounces of silver were produced from processing the concentrates, equivalent to over US$40 billion of value in today’s metal prices.
The foregoing geological disclosure has been reviewed by John Keating P.Geo. (a qualified person for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects). Mr. Keating is the President, Chief Executive Officer and a Director of PJX.
