Northair Successfully Completes Warrant Incentive Program
International Northair Mines Ltd. (TSXV: INM) (the "Company" or "Northair") is pleased to
announce that 6,385,000 warrants have been exercised under the terms of the previously announced warrant incentive program adding $638,500 to the Company's treasury.
"We would like to thank our warrant holders for participating in the warrant incentive program." said Fred Hewett, President & CEO of Northair. "We very much appreciate their support of the Company. The proceeds of the financing will be used for the first drill program at our La Cigarra silver project in Mexico as well as to fund possible new acquisitions, further the Company's exploration projects and for general working capital."
Early Warrant Exercise
In order to encourage the early exercise of the warrants, Northair, offered a Unit (as described and defined below) for each Original Warrant exercised prior to the expiry date of the incentive program. Each holder of an Original Warrant who elected to exercise prior to the expiry date of the incentive program received a Unit comprised of one common share and one-half of one whole warrant (a "New Warrant"). Each whole New Warrant allows the holder to acquire an additional one common share of Northair at a price of $0.20 per share for one year following the date of issue of the Unit. The New Warrants will be subject to a four-month hold period.
Northair paid a commission to finders as a result of their services in soliciting the May 2009 warrant holders. The commission equaled 5% of the aggregate amount subscribed to by those purchasers (which totaled 4,835,000) and were paid as to 2.5% in cash and 2.5% in shares of the Company.
ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD,
INTERNATIONAL NORTHAIR MINES LTD.
