July 13, 2021 (Vancouver, BC): LaSalle Exploration Corp. (“LaSalle” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: LSX) is pleased to announce it has arranged a private placement (the “Offering”) to raise a total of up to $1,600,000 through the sale of $0.16 units, each comprised of one common share and one-half common share purchase warrant, with each whole warrant being exercisable into one common share for 24 months from issuance at $0.24 per share. A total of $1,000,000 of the placement is being arranged with Crescat Portfolio Management LLC, of Denver Colorado (“Crescat”). Crescat has required that $500,000 of their investment be directed to the Company’s Egan property in Ontario. The balance of the financing will be applied to general corporate purposes.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Crescat as a significant new shareholder to LaSalle. This financing will provide LaSalle with the resources to escalate our exploration campaign at Egan while we continue to advance the Radisson and Blakelock properties,” said Ian Campbell, President and CEO.
The Company has also granted Crescat the right to participate in any future financings in order to maintain its percentage interest in the Company as at the date of the future financing, for so long as Crescat holds at least 3% of the outstanding shares of the Company.
As announced May 17, 2021, LaSalle’s work on the Egan property has resulted in the discovery of high-grade gold in individual grab samples grading 26.9 g/t and 15.7 g/t gold on the E3 Zone located approximately 3 kilometres south of the E1 Zone which has also exhibited high grade gold in grab samples. Egan is strategically located central to three actively producing gold mining camps of Timmins, Kirkland Lake and Matachewan, which collectively have produced greater than 115M oz gold. Mapping and prospecting is underway, with a LiDAR and close spaced airborne magnetic survey recently completed.
