ALPHAMIN COMPLETES ANNUAL FILINGS
AND UPDATES TERMS OF PROPOSED OFFERING OF SHARES
MAURITIUS – May 7, 2020 – Further to the press release of Alphamin Resources Corp. (AFM:TSXV,
APH:JSE AltX, “Alphamin” or the “Company”) dated April 28, 2020, the Company is pleased to
announce that the 2019 annual filings have now been completed. The filings include the Company's
annual audited consolidated financial statements for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019 and
related Management Discussion & Analysis. The documents are now available for viewing and
download under the Company's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.
Alphamin also wishes to update the terms of its proposed offering of a minimum of US$30 million and
a maximum of US$35 million of common shares announced by the Company on April 27, 2020. The
Company is proposing to issue in a private placement for cash up to 161,142,857 common shares at a
price of C$0.14 for gross proceeds of up to C$22,560,000 (approximately US$16 million). Of this
amount, 60,428,571 common shares (approximately US$6 million) have been subscribed for by the
Company’s major shareholder, Tremont Master Holdings (“Tremont”). Other insiders of Alphamin
intend to participate in the private placement to a maximum of 4,673,757 common shares. In addition,
the Company also intends to complete concurrent shares for debt transactions of up to C$29,610,000
(approximately US$21 million) that would result in the issuance of up to 211,500,000 additional common
shares at a deemed price of C$0.14 per share. Of this amount, and as previously announced,
191,357,143 common shares are to be issued to Tremont for the assignment and transfer by Tremont
to Alphamin of US$19 million of the amount owning to Tremont under the senior secured credit facility
(the “Credit Facility”) made to Alphamin’s 80.75% subsidiary, Alphamin Bisie Mining S.A. (“AFM”). The
balance of the shares may be issued to arm’s length third-party creditors of AFM under similar debt
settlements. The proposed private placement and debt settlement transactions are conditional upon
each other and subject to a minimum of an aggregate of 302,142,857 shares (US$30 million) and a
maximum of 352,500,000 shares (US$35 million) being issued collectively under the transactions.
As announced by Alphamin on April 27, 2020, the proposed private placement and shares for debt
transactions are being undertaken in connection with certain amendments to the Credit Facility intended
to reduce debt service costs, reduce mandatory debt repayments and provide more favourable financial
covenants moving forward. The completion of the proposed transactions will result in the prepayment
of a minimum of US$31.2 million in principal under the Credit Facility, with US$19 million to be settled
under the proposed shares for debt transaction with Tremont and a minimum of an additional US$12.2
million to be prepaid from the proceeds of the private placement and existing cash resources.
As partial consideration for the proposed amendments to the Credit Facility announced on April 27,
2020, Alphamin is required to issue to two arm’s length lenders, Sprott Private Resource Lending
(Collector), L.P. and Barak Fund SPC Limited, an aggregate of 2,014,284 common shares at a deemed
price of C$0.14 per share (“Bonus Shares”). The issuance of the Bonus Shares and the shares
issuable under the proposed private placement and debt settlement transactions are subject to the
receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The transactions described above are expected to be completed on or about May 11, 2020.
