Vancouver, BC / February 13, 2015 / New Carolin Gold Corp. (the "Company") ($LAD:CA) is pleased to announce that, subject to regulatory approval, it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") of convertible debentures for between $2,000,000 - $2,500,000. The debentures will have a term of 2 years at an interest rate of 4% per annum and will be convertible into units at the rate of $0.07 per unit. Each unit will consist of one common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant will be exercisable for twenty four months from the date of issue of the debentures and will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.15 per share. The debentures will be secured by a charge against the Company's portion of any earnings received from the retreatment of the tailings resource currently located at the Ladner Gold project.
A finder's fee may be paid in conjunction with this offering. The proceeds of this Private Placement will be used to fund the Company's development plans for its Ladner Gold project and general working capital purposes. Shares issued pursuant to the exercise of the warrants will be subject to a four-month hold period from the date of issue of the debentures in accordance with applicable securities laws and, if required, the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The Company is also pleased to announce that it has engaged Beckett Wealth Management Inc ("BWM") to advise it on the marketing of the Private Placement. However, BWM is not and will not be acting as the Company's agent in respect of the Private Placement nor will BWM be providing any due diligence services in relation to the Private Placement. BWM will also not be making any recommendations with respect to the Company or the Private Placement to any investor or potential investors and BWM has no obligations or responsibilities in respect of the Private Placement and completion of the Private Placement is the responsibility of the Company.
In addition, but subject to completing the Private Placement in order to obtain the necessary funds to meet its obligations, the Company will further engage BWM for a period of 2 years (if $2,000,000 is raised) or 3 years (if $2,500,000 is raised) to provide "Consulting Services" a rate of $5,000 per month.
