The underwriters also have an option to sell a further 150,000  flow through shares at the same price up to the closing date.

"By raising an additional $5.5 million, we will have over $15 million in cash on hand and will have funded the expansion of our ongoing drill program by an additional 30,000 metres, for a new total of 90,000 metres of drilling," said Chris Taylor, the chief executive at Great Bear.

"Coupled with the potential for an additional $7.8 million from warrant exercise, Great Bear will remain very well-funded with the flexibility to significantly expand and extend our drilling as required. We are strongly positioned to benefit from one of our industry's most significant exploration drill campaigns through 2019 and 2020."

Scheduled to close on or around July 3 this year

The offering is scheduled to close on or around July 3 this year, subject to certain conditions, including TSX Venture Exchange approval.

Yesterday (Tuesday), the firm said it expects to begin drilling the newly discovered Bear-Rimini zone at the Dixie project in Ontario within days.

The firm has now moved a third drill rig to the property in the famous Red Lake district of Ontario, as part of the ongoing drill program.
