The Placement will be to institutional investors, including certain funds managed by Sprott Asset Management LP and other North American institutional investors.

Commenting on the Placement, Managing Director Brendan Borg said:
“The Placement ensures Tempus continues to be well funded as we continue our exciting exploration programs at Blackdome-Elizabeth, and it will assist in providing liquidity for our shares on the TSX Venture Exchange, where listing commenced this week.”
The Placement comprises a single tranche under the Company’s available placement capacity under ASX Listing Rule 7.1.
Proceeds from the placement will be applied to the Company’s Blackdome-Elizabeth Gold Project in British Columbia, Canada.
The Placement shares will be issued as Canadian flow-through shares, which provide tax credits to those investors for capital to be used in qualifying mining and exploration activities. The Placement is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval and will have the statutory hold period of 4 months plus 1 day. The completion of the Placement is expected on or about December 17, 2020.
