Barkerville Gold Mines Closes $15.5 Million Bought Deal Private Placement

Barkerville Gold Mines  {TSX.V: BGM} have confirmed they have closed the previously announced bought deal placement.

BGM have raised CAD $15.5 million issuing 22.1 million flow through shares at 70c per share.




Great news for Barkerville holders, as this money is raised via a flow through, all $15million has to be spent in the ground!

It is law in Canada that all flow through money is spent on exploration, there are severe penalties for non compliance, and all participants in the financing would have to change their tax returns, and incur more taxes!

Imagine what sort of drill campaign they will run with this sort of treasury available!

Newsflow could be considerable starting in a few months time……
