"The company intends to use the net proceeds for drilling and other technical studies on the Berenguela Silver-Copper project in Peru, and the Challacollo and Cachinal Silver-Gold projects in Chile, and for general working capital purposes," the company said.
Sprott has agreed to invest C$5,351,022 in the private placement, the firm added, buying over 8.2 million shares.
Assuming the placing is fully subscribed, this investment would mean Sprott would hold around 19.9% of Aftermath's shares on closing.
At the end of July, Aftermath revealed it had inked a binding letter of intent with SSR Mining to buy the Berenguela silver-copper project in Puno, Peru.
It will buy the Peruvian holding company Sociedad Minera Berenguela SA for nearly US$13 million in staged cash payments, an investment in Aftermath shares and net smelter return royalties.
Aftermath said the Berenguela silver–copper project is an epithermal polymetallic carbonate-replacement deposit with a total tenement package of 6,594 hectares.
