VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alianza Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: ANZ  OTC: TARSF) (“Alianza” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that it has arranged a financing of $750,000 to further advance its projects in BC, Yukon, Nevada and Peru.

“The flow through share funding will allow us to expand our work at the high grade Haldane Silver Project in the Yukon Territory,” stated Jason Weber, P.Geo., President and CEO of Alianza. “The hard dollars will fund our working capital and investor relations programs now that we are actively exploring six projects, four of which are funded by an earn-in partner.”

Financing Terms – Non-Flow Through Units (10,000,000 units)

Each non-flow through unit is comprised of one common share and one common share purchase warrant at $0.05 per unit. The warrant is valid for three years from the date of closing of the offering and is exercisable at $0.10 to acquire one common share.

Financing Terms – Flow Through Shares (4,166,666 flow-through shares)

The flow through shares will be eligible for a tax deduction for Canadian income tax payers for the 2019 year. These shares will be issued at $0.06 per share and the proceeds will be spent on qualifying exploration expenditures in the Yukon Territory.

Finder’s fees of 7.5% in cash and 7.5% in finder’s warrants will be paid to eligible parties. Members of Alianza’s board of directors and management team may be participating in this offering. All securities are subject to a four-month hold from the date of closing.

Use of Proceeds

Alianza will use proceeds of this financing to increase the exploration program at its Haldane silver project in the Keno District, Yukon. The 2018 field program identified a new silver vein target at the Bighorn Anomaly, 2.5 km from known mineralization at the MHVS targets where work extended the potential strike length to over 3.5 km. Trenching and/or drilling are planned for these targets and good results will upgrade the project for further work which may be funded by a partner.
