Arena Minerals : Confirms Ganfeng Lithium Subscribes for $3.735 Million Participation in $10 Million Offering

07/29/2021 | 10:58am EST

TORONTO - Arena Minerals Inc. ('Arena' or the 'Company') (TSX-V: AN) is pleased to announce that further to its previously announced non-brokered private placement of subscription receipts at a price of $0.14 per Subscription Receipt for gross proceeds of up to $10,000,000, the Company has received written confirmation from Ganfeng Lithium Co., Ltd of its intention to exercise its equity participation right and maintain its 19.9% shareholding by subscribing to $3.735 million of Subscription Receipts in the Offering.

Ganfeng's participation is subject to obtaining Chinese regulatory approvals.

William Randall, President and Chief Executive Officer of Arena, commented: 'This funding by Ganfeng shows the continued support by one of the lithium industry's leaders. Having closed the landmark Sal de la Puna acquisition, we now have the funds to fast-track our lithium projects.'

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Subscription Agreement, the Subscriber's obligation to purchase Subscription Receipts set forth herein is subject to the Subscriber's receipt of all necessary Chinese regulatory approvals for such purchase.

Closing of the Company's share purchase agreement with Centaur Resources Pty Ltd. (the 'Release Condition') occurred on July 26, 2021, therefore the Subscription Receipts will be exchanged without payment of additional consideration for units of the Company (each a 'Unit') on closing of the second tranche of the Offering. Each Unit shall consist of one common share of the Company (a 'Common Share') and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a 'Warrant'). Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one Common Share of the Company at $0.25 for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance. If the Release Condition is not met by August 15, 2021, the proceeds of the Offering will be returned to the subscribers without interest or deduction.

About Arena Minerals Inc.

Arena recently purchased the Sal de la Puna project covering approximately 11,000 hectares of the Pastos Grandes basin located in Salta, Argentina. The claims are highly prospective and share the basin with two advanced lithium brine projects. In addition to Sal de la Puna, the Company owns the Antofalla lithium brine project in Argentina, consisting of four claims covering a total of 6,000 hectares of the central portion of Salar de Antofalla, located immediately south of Albemarle Corporation's Antofalla project. Arena has developed a proprietary brine processing technology using brine type reagents derived from the Antofalla project with the objective of producing more competitive battery grade lithium products.

Arena also owns 80 percent of the Atacama Copper property within the Antofagasta region of Chile, and 5.8 million shares of Astra Exploration. The projects are at low altitudes, within producing mining camps in infrastructure-rich areas, located in the heart of Chile's premier copper mining district.
