Canarc Closes CA$960,000 in Two Private Placement Financings
Vancouver, Canada – October 26, 2009 - Canarc Resource Corp. (CCM: TSX, CRCUF: OTC-BB, CAN: DB-F) announces that it has closed the two non-brokered private placement equity financings totaling CA$960,000 that were announced on September 9, 2009.
The first private placement consisted of 4,000,000 flow-through shares priced at CA$0.12 each for gross proceeds of CA$480,000. The flow-through shares will entitle the holders to a 100% CEE deduction, as well as the 15% federal tax credit in Canada.
The second private placement consisted of 4,800,000 units priced at CA$0.10 each for gross proceeds of CA$480,000. Each unit consisted of one common share and one half share purchase warrant. Each full warrant can be exercised to purchase an additional common share at CA$0.15 within an 18 month period.
Three flow-through funds of MineralFields Group participated in the flow through placement for 2,888,000 shares or CA $346,560 in total. MineralFields Group (a division of Pathway Asset Management), based in Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary, is a mining fund with significant assets under administration that offers its tax-advantaged super flow-through limited partnerships to investors throughout Canada.
Both private placements were over-subscribed by a small margin (13-17%) but the TSX did not approve the oversubscribed amounts. The Company is considering an appeal of the TSX decision not to approve the oversubscribed amounts.
