Vancouver, Canada – February 19, 2015 – Elissa Resources Ltd. (TSXV: ELI; OTCQX: ELSRF; Frankfurt: E3O) (the “Company” or “Elissa”) announces a non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) concurrent with a proposed consolidation of the issued and authorized common shares of the corporation on a three old for one new basis (the “Consolidation”).
The Offering is for gross proceeds of up to $750,000 consisting of up to 15,000,000 units (the “Units”) at a post Consolidation price of CAD $0.05 per Unit. Each Unit is comprised of one post-Consolidation common share and share purchase warrant (each a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional post-Consolidation common share of the Company at an exercise price of CAD $0.10 for a period of two (2) years from the closing date of the Offering.
The Warrants will be subject to accelerated exercise provisions whereby in the event that the closing price of the Company’s shares on the TSXV exceeds $0.20 per share for a period of 20 consecutive trading days, at the Issuer’s election, the two (2) year period within which the Warrants are exercisable will be reduced and the holders of the Warrants will be entitled to exercise their Warrants for a period of 30 days commencing on the day Elissa either disseminates a press release or sends written notice to the Warrantholders advising of the commencement of such election.
The closing of the Offering will be subject to the receipt of shareholder approval for the Consolidation. Elissa expects to call an extraordinary meeting of shareholders to consider Consolidation soon; the timing of such shareholder meeting has yet to be determined.
The gross proceeds of the Offering will be used for working capital purposes, maintenance of Elissa’s Thor Rare Earth Property in Nevada, USA and to continue funding the initial stages of Elissa’s Binding Letter of Intent with Spectrum Optix Inc. of Calgary, Canada. The Offering is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Elissa Resources has an option to acquire a 100% interest in Spectrum Optix Inc. (http://www.SpectrumOptix.com/) Spectrum is developing novel technologies relating to imagery and light concentration applications. Its technologies aim to disrupt lens and image capture based systems, which may include cameras, smart phones, and telescopes, by creating a compact lens system in order to reduce the depth currently required in traditional lens technologies. Additionally, Spectrum believes its core technology can be scaled to large industrial sizes, potentially enabling improvements to the solar and greenhouse sectors.
Elissa also holds a 100% ownership in the Thor Rare Earth Project, Nevada, located about 28 km (17 miles) east of Molycorp Minerals’ Mountain Pass REE deposit and processing facility in nearby California. Further details on the Thor Project, including highlights of its successful phase one drill program; can be found on the Company’s website www.elissaresources.com.
Finder’s fees may be payable in connection with the Offering in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.
