Bonterra Resources’ (TSXV: BTR) stock rose nearly 7% Tuesday on the news that the Quebec-based explorer had closed on a C$32 million (USD$24 million) private placement.
Bonterra issued 7,385,000 units of the company at C$2.50 per unit for gross proceeds of C$18.5 million, 2.2 million flow-through units at C$3 for gross proceeds of C$6.5 million and 1.6 million super flow-through units at C$4.30 for gross proceeds of C$7 million.
Each unit consists of one common share of the company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant is transferrable and entitles the holder to acquire one common share of the company until August 20, 2021 at C$3.10, Bonterra said in a press release.

The gross proceeds from the issuance of the units will be used for Canadian exploration expenses. The net proceeds from the units sold will be used for ongoing exploration and development work and for general corporate purposes.
