Tinka Resources confirm $10 million financing

VANCOUVER, Oct. 11, 2016 – Tinka Resources {TSX.V: TK} is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with GMP Securities L.P. (the “Agent”), who has agreed to act as agent for and on behalf of the Company, on a “best efforts” agency basis in connection with a proposed private placement offering of up to 50,000,000 common shares (collectively the “Shares”) of the Company at a price of C$0.20 per Share (the “Issue Price”) for gross proceeds of up to C$10 million (the “Offering”).


All Shares to be issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a four-month hold period under applicable securities laws in Canada.

The Agent will not be paid a commission or receive broker warrants in respect of any Shares sold to certain investors and those purchasing under the Company’s president’s list.
