VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – July 3, 2020 — Anfield Energy Inc. (TSX.V: AEC; OTCQB: ANLDF; FRANKFURT: 0AD) (“Anfield” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that it has closed the final tranche of its non-brokered private placement for a total of 15,512,179 units (each, a “Unit”) at a price of $0.065 per Unit, for gross proceeds of $1,008,292. Each Unit consists of one common share and one share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant”), with each Warrant entitling the holder to purchase an additional common share at a price of $0.10 for a one year period.
The first tranche of the placement has closed on June 9, 2020 through the issuance of 11,373,717 Units. All securities issued in the first tranche have a hold period expiring on October 10, 2020, and the 11,373,717 Warrants expire on June 9, 2021. The final tranche of the placement closed on July XX, 2020. All securities issued in the final tranche have a hold period expiring on November XX, 2020. The 15,512,179 Warrants expire on July XX, 2021. In connection with completion of the final tranche of the placement, the Company paid $2,275 and issued 35,000 Warrants, to certain arms-length parties who assisted in introducing subscribers. The proceeds from the private placement will be used for the development of both the Charlie Project and other Wyoming-based ISR projects, property-related costs, and general working capital.
The placement included subscriptions from directors and officers of the Company for an aggregate of 5,200,000 Units between both tranches. The issuance of units to directors and officers of the company, pursuant to the placement, are considered related party transactions within the meaning of TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 — Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company relied on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 in respect of insider participation, as neither the fair market value of, nor the fair market value of the consideration for, the placement, insofar as it involves directors and officers of the Company, exceeded twenty-five percent of the market capitalization of the Company.
The Company also announces that it intends to re-price a series of $1.00 share purchase warrants, with expiry dates of July 16, 2022 and October 4, 2022, to $0.10. There are currently 3,905,710 warrants expiring on July 16, 2022, and 1,009,167 warrants expiring October 4, 2022, outstanding. In accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange, the warrants will also be amended such that the exercise period of the warrants will be reduced to 30 days if, for any 10 consecutive trading days, the closing price of the common shares of the Company on the TSX Venture Exchange is $0.125 or greater. The reduced 30-day period will begin 7 calendar days after such 10-consecutive-trading-day period. Completion of the re-pricing remains subject to the consent of the holders of the warrants, and approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, and will not take effect until such time as consent and approval have been received.
Anfield is a uranium and vanadium development and near-term production company that is committed to becoming a top-tier energy-related fuels supplier by creating value through sustainable, efficient growth in its assets. Anfield is a publicly-traded corporation listed on the TSX-Venture Exchange (AEC-V), the OTCQB Marketplace (ANLDF) and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (0AD). Anfield is focused on two asset centers, as summarized below:
Wyoming – Irigaray ISR Processing Plant (Resin Processing Agreement)
Anfield has signed a Resin Processing Agreement with Uranium One whereby Anfield would process up to 500,000 pounds per annum of its mined material at Uranium One’s Irigaray processing plant in Wyoming. In addition, the Company can both buy and borrow uranium from Uranium One in order to fulfill some or all of its sales contracts.
Anfield’s 24 ISR mining projects are located in the Black Hills, Powder River Basin, Great Divide Basin, Laramie Basin, Shirley Basin and Wind River Basin areas in Wyoming. Anfield’s three projects in Wyoming for which NI 43-101 resource reports have been completed are Red Rim, Nine Mile Lake and Clarkson Hill.
The Charlie Project, the asset which was the core component of a recently-announced transaction between Anfield and Cotter Corporation, is located in the Pumpkin Buttes Uranium District in Johnson County, Wyoming. The Charlie Project consists of a 720-acre Wyoming State uranium lease which has been in development since 1969. An NI 43-101 Preliminary Economic Assessment has been completed for the Charlie Project.
Arizona/Utah/Colorado – Shootaring Canyon Mill
A key asset in Anfield’s portfolio is the Shootaring Canyon Mill in Garfield County, Utah. The Shootaring Canyon Mill is strategically located within one of the historically most prolific uranium production areas in the United States, and is one of only three licensed, permitted and constructed uranium mills in the United States.
Anfield’s conventional uranium assets consist of mining claims and state leases in southeastern Utah, Colorado and Arizona, targeting areas where past uranium mining or prospecting occurred. Anfield’s conventional uranium assets include the Velvet-Wood Project, the Frank M Uranium Project, the West Slope Project as well as the Findlay Tank breccia pipe. An NI 43-101 Preliminary Economic Assessment has been completed for the Velvet-Wood Project. The PEA is preliminary in nature, and includes inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves, and there is no certainty that the preliminary economic assessment would be realized. All conventional uranium assets are situated within a 200-mile radius of the Shootaring Mill.
