Vancouver, B.C. - TerraX Minerals Inc. (TSX-V: TXR; Frankfurt: TX0; OTC Pink: TRXXF) is pleased to announce that it has closed the final tranche of a non-brokered private placement of 17,500,000 flow-through shares at $0.40 per share announced July 4, 2016 with the issuance of a further 8,095,154 shares at $0.40 per share for gross proceeds of $3,238,061.60, increasing the total raised in this financing to $7.5 Million. Finder's fees in cash were paid with respect to this placement along with 1,447,500 finder's shares and 1,266,475 finder's warrants exercisable at $0.42 until August 19, 2018. The shares, and all shares issued on the exercise of warrants, are subject to a hold period expiring on December 19, 2016.
With completion of this financing, TerraX has cash on hand in excess of $11.7 Million which will be more than adequate to fund the 27,000 meter drill program and extensive field exploration programs currently underway on our wholly owned Yellowknife City gold project in the Northwest Territories. Drilling commenced on July 27th and is continuing at the Mispickel discovery, where TerraX intercepted 8.00 m @ 60.60 g/t Au during its winter drill program earlier this year (see our news release of June 6, 2016).
