Tinka receives US$2.9 million from exercise of warrants
Friday, Dec 01, 2017
Tinka Resources Limited is pleased to announce that a total of 12,632,660 common share purchase warrants (the “Warrants”) have been exercised at $0.30 per common share for total proceeds to the Company of C$3,789,798. The Warrants were exercised pursuant to the terms of warrant certificates issued in connection with the closing of a private placement financing undertaken by the Company in May 2015, which were due to expire November 29, 2017. No commission was paid in connection with the exercise of the Warrants.

Proceeds will be used for the ongoing drill program, engineering and metallurgical studies at the Company’s Ayawilca zinc and tin project in Peru, and for general working capital purposes.

Dr. Graham Carman, President and CEO, stated: “I am pleased to report that the Company’s treasury has been topped up by C$3.7 million (US$2.9 m) due to the exercise of Warrants held mostly by the Company’s two largest shareholders. Tinka now has sufficient cash to fund exploration drilling and resource development work at the Ayawilca project well into 2018. Tinka’s exploration drill program is ongoing and the Company is planning to continue drilling for the foreseeable future, focussing on the testing of new target areas and extensions of the known zinc mineralization. The current Inferred Mineral Resource estimate at Ayawilca is 42.7 million tonnes grading 7.3% Zinc Equivalent (see Press Release Nov 8, 2017). We believe there remains significant potential for resource expansion at Ayawilca. Simultaneously, we are working on de-risking the project through detailed metallurgical tests of zinc sulphide mineralization from different parts of the deposit, along with preliminary desktop mining studies.”
