VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VR Resources Ltd. (TSX.V:VRR) (FSE:5VR) (OTCBB:VRRCF) (the “Company” or “VR”) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement (“Financing”) in order to advance its planned 2018 exploration programs at its Bonita and Junction properties in Nevada.  The Financing consists of 2,595,000 units (“Units”) at a price of $0.27 per Unit for aggregate proceeds of $700,900

Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company and one-half of a common share purchase warrant.  Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one additional common share at an exercise price of $0.40 per Common Share for a period of 24 months from the closing date of the Financing.

The securities that were issued under the Financing are subject to a four month hold period under Canadian securities law expiring on August 14, 2018.

In connection with the Financing, the Company paid cash fees of $26,200 to certain finders.

VR will use the net proceeds of the Financing primarily for mineral exploration on its properties in Nevada, and for general administrative and corporate purposes.  In particular, these funds will allow the Company to advance surface exploration now underway at its Junction copper-silver property in Nevada, as the Company plans for the upcoming follow-up drill program at the Bonita porphyry copper-gold property. 

The securities have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”), or any U.S. state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the “United States” or to “U.S. persons” (as such terms are defined in Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act) without registration under the U.S. Securities Act and all applicable state securities laws or compliance with an exemption from such registration. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

The Company has approved the allocation of 1,550,000 incentive stock options, exercisable for a period of ten years, at a price of $0.30 to directors, officers, employees and consultants.  The allocation includes 1,050,000 incentive options to directors and officers of the Company.
