Nickel Creek Platinum Announces Closing of Second Tranche of Private Placement


TORONTO, June 8, 2020 - Nickel Creek Platinum Corp. (TSX:NCP) ("Nickel Creek" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed a second tranche (“Tranche 2”) of its previously announced private placement (the “Private Placement”) pursuant to which the Company issued a total of 30,563,365 units (“Units”) for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $1.528 million. The Units were priced at $0.05 with each Unit consisting of one common share in the capital of the Company (each, a "Common Share") and one common share purchase warrant (each, a "Warrant"), with each Warrant exercisable into one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.10 for a period of five years from the date of issuance, subject to adjustment upon certain customary events. The Company received shareholder approval of Tranche 2 at the Company's annual general and special meeting held on June 2, 2020.  The Company previously closed the first tranche of the Private Placement for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $672 thousand on April 7, 2020. The aggregate gross proceeds raised pursuant to the Private Placement to date are approximately $2.2 million.

The Company intends to complete a third tranche of the Private Placement of up to approximately 27.3 million “flow-through” units of the Company (“FT Units”) at a price of $0.055 per FT Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $1.5 million (the “Flow-Through Offering”). Each FT Unit will consist of one “flow-through” common share and one common share purchase warrant (each a “FT Warrant”), with each FT Warrant exercisable  for one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.10 for a period of five years from the date of issuance, subject to adjustment upon certain customary events. The closing of the Flow-Through Offering remains subject to the final approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange and other customary closing conditions.

The net proceeds from the Private Placement sale of Units will be used to fund the investigation of strategic transactions, ongoing permitting activities and holding costs at Nickel Shäw project, general corporate and working capital purposes and a portion of the planned exploration program scheduled to commence during the month of August 2020. The net proceeds from the sale of any FT Units will be used towards the 2020 exploration program and the gross proceeds derived from the sale of any FT Units will be used by the Company to fund “Canadian exploration expenses” that will qualify as “flow-through mining expenditures”, each as defined under the Income Tax Act (Canada).
