TORONTO, Dec. 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (TSXV: TVC) – Three Valley Copper Corp. (“TVC” or the “Company”) today announces that its ownership of Minera Tres Valles SpA (“MTV”) has increased to 95.1% from 91.1%.
On November 25, 2021, the Company announced the closing of a bought-deal financing (the “Financing”) to help support the operations of MTV. In accordance with the MTV shareholders agreement (the “SHA”), the minority shareholder of MTV (the “Minority Shareholder”) and SRH Chile SpA (an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of TVC) were provided the opportunity to subscribe for newly issued shares of MTV. The Minority Shareholder did not participate resulting in the dilution of their MTV ownership from 8.9% to 4.9% as per the terms of the SHA. Approximately $9 million of the Financing was used to subscribe for these newly issued shares and the Company expects that further dilution of the Minority Shareholder’s position will occur should the Minority Shareholder not participate in future anticipated MTV share issuances.
