MONTREAL, June 7, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ – BlackRock Metals Inc. (the “Company” or “BlackRock”) announces an equity financing of C$40 million led by Orion Mine Finance Group (“Orion”). Proceeds will be used for the completion of technical designs, permitting, the placement of equipment orders, acceleration of early construction work and general working capital requirements. The financing will be disbursed in two tranches, subject to certain milestones.
The equity financing marks a major step forward in the development of BlackRock’s C$950 million Project, located near Chibougamau and on traditional Eeyou Istchee Territory, and significantly enhances the development of the Company’s transformation plant at the Grande-Anse Port Industrial Park in Saguenay, Quebec.
