Vancouver, BC – Medallion Resources Ltd (TSX-V: MDL; OTCQX: MLLOF – “Medallion” or the “Company”) today announced that it has closed a non-brokered private placement, announced June 10, 2013, for gross proceeds of $400,000 comprising 2,000,000 common shares of Medallion at a price of $0.20 per share (the “Private Placement”).
The shares were subscribed by Medallion’s President, Don Lay, the subscription funded in his accounts, or accounts he controls, from proceeds of an arranged sale of approximately 2,000,000 shares executed through the facilities of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) at a price of $0.20 per share (the “Disposition”). As Mr. Lay or accounts he controls were the sole subscriber to the Private Placement, the transaction constitutes a related party transaction under applicable securities laws, however the Private Placement is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of Multilateral Instrument 51-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions, as neither the fair market value of any shares issued to Mr. Lay or account he controls, nor the consideration paid by Mr. Lay, exceeded 25% of the Company’s market capitalization. The Disposition and the Private Placement on a net basis did not materially affect the number of common shares of Medallion held or controlled by Mr. Lay.
The proceeds of the offering will be used toward the Company’s pro rata share of funding of an independent financial and technical study of the Company’s proposed rare-earth extraction facility in Oman and for working capital.
The common shares issued in the Private Placement are subject to a four-month hold period ending October 24, 2013, pursuant to securities legislation and the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”).
