One World Lithium Inc. (CSE:OWLI, OTCQB:OWRDF) (the “Company” or “OWL”) announces that Mike Rosko of Montgomery & Associates (“M&A”) and operator of the Salar del Diablo exploration program will be meeting drilling companies and other service providers in Hermosillo, Mexico before touring the Salar del Diablo Property located in Baja California, Mexico. Also attending the meetings and site tour will be Doug Fulcher, OWL’s President and CEO, and Kevin Milledge, an OWL Director and manager of field operations. They will visit previous and proposed drill site locations as well as surface geological features. The field trip will be from September 09 to 12, 2019.
As previously reported in OWL’s news release of August 22, 2019, they will also sign off on protocol documentation for drilling, sampling and testing. The current proposed drilling program is planned for four holes to be drilled to a depth of 600 meters each to collect some 20 groundwater samples at specified depths using a depth specific packer system. A second exploration program will then be proposed by M&A to further define the lithium potential in the basin.
Mike Rosko is the General Manager of M&A’s Santiago office, and has extensive experience in salar environments. Mike will be heading up M&A’s team to explore the Salar del Diablo project. Mike has a Master of Science in geology, is a Certified Professional Geologist, and has been a QP (Qualified Person) as well as an operator, for similar lithium brine exploration projects, including Galaxy Lithium’s Sal de Vida Project, Millennial Lithium’s Pastos Grandes Project, and Lithium America Corporation’s Cauchari-Olaroz Project.
The Company also announces that the previous non-brokered private placement it announced on June 07, 2019 will be replaced with a non-brokered private placement of up to 10,000,000 units (the “Units”) at a price of $0.15 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $1,500,000 (the “Offering”). All funds are stated in Canadian dollars. The Company does not need proceeds from this offering to start the four hole drill program.
Each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company (each, a “Share”) and one non-transferable common share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one additional Share (each a “Warrant Share”), at a price of $0.20 per Warrant Share for a period of 24 months from the closing of the Offering.
There is no minimum number of Units or minimum aggregate proceeds required to close the Offering and the Company may, at its discretion, elect to close the Offering in one or more closings. Management anticipates that the Company will allocate the net proceeds of the Offering as follows: Salar del Diablo Lithium Property drilling program $750,000; testing $250,000; Salar del Diablo Lithium Property southern region pre-drilling program $200,000 and $300,000 for working capital.
The Company may pay a finder’s fee on the Offering. Closing of the Offering is subject to a number of conditions, including receipt of all necessary corporate and regulatory approvals. All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus a day from the closing of the Offering in accordance with applicable securities legislation.
