March 22, 2024 – TheNewswire - Vancouver, B.C.: VR Resources Ltd. (TSX.V: VRR; FSE: 5VR; OTCQB: VRRCF), (the “Company or “VR”), has increased its previously announced private placement from $500,000 to $900,000 (the “Financing”).

The terms of the financing are unchanged from those announced on March 14th in NR-24-004.  The Company will issue 5,982,665 units (the “Units”) at a price of $0.15 per Unit for gross proceeds of $897,400.  Each Unit will consist of one common share (“Common Share”) of the Company, and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole Common Share purchase warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one additional Common Share at an exercise price of $0.20 per Common Share, for a period of 18 months from the closing date (“Closing Date”) of the Financing.

In accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”), the Company may pay a finder’s fee of up to  6% cash for subscriptions to the Financing.

The Closing Date is expected to be on or before March 28, 2024, and is subject to all regulatory approvals, including the approval of the Exchange.  The securities issued in connection with this Financing will be subject to a hold period of four months plus one day from the Closing Date, in accordance with applicable securities legislation.

Certain insiders of the Company may participate in the Financing. The issuance of Units to insiders of the Company pursuant to the Financing will be considered related party transactions within the meaning of the Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transaction (“MI 61-101”). The Company intends to rely on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements of sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 in respect of such insider participation, based on a determination that fair market value of the participation in the Financing by insiders will not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101.

Use of Proceeds

VR plans to use the gross proceeds of the Financing for mineral exploration in Nevada, and for general working capital. More specifically, the Company plans to use the funds to bolster the program budget for a planned drill program on its New Boston polymetallic copper-moly-silver property in Nevada this spring. The Financing will build upon the funds expected to be received from the recently announced transaction and sale of the Company’s Hecla-Kilmer REE property in northern Ontario (see NR24-03 dated March 11, 2024).


The securities to be issued hereunder will not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”), or any U.S. state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the “United States” or to “U.S. persons” (as such terms are defined in Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act) without registration under the U.S. Securities Act and all applicable state securities laws or compliance with an exemption from such registration.


This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
