The company will be listed as a Tier 2 issuer on the exchange under the symbol HIGH, and trading in the shares is expected to occur in mid-September, according to a statement.
In connection with the TSX listing, HighGold also said it expects to close a non-brokered private placement of 17 million units at a price of $0.45 per unit for gross proceeds of C$7.65 million
The company said each unit will consist of one share and one half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant, with each one exercisable to purchase one share at a price of $0.70 for a period of two years from the issue date.
Upon listing and completion of the private placement, HighGold said it will have 33,118,075 shares issued and outstanding.
HighGold said investor Rob McEwen purchased 2,222,200 Units (or C$1 million) through his wholly-owned company, Evanachan Limited, for 10.1% of HighGold on a partially diluted basis.
Also participating: A senior North American gold producer purchased 2,190,000 units (C$0.99 million) for 9.9% of HighGold on a partially diluted basis; and a partnership managed by an affiliate of the Sprott Group purchased 3,175,555 Units (C$1.4 million) for 14.4% of the company.
"With exceptional exploration assets, healthy treasury, quality shareholder list, and strong board of directors and management team, HighGold is well positioned for success,” said CEO Darwin Green.
“We look forward to providing the market with meaningful updates on the results of the exploration program at the company's flagship Johnson Tract gold project (in Alaska), which is currently underway."
Proceeds from the private placement will be used to fund exploration and development of HighGold's mineral properties, as well as for general working capital and other corporate purposes.
