• $250,000 in Units for Exploration & Working Capital
  • $600,000 in Flow Through for BC & Yukon Exploration

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alianza Minerals Ltd. (TSXV:ANZ) (“Alianza” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that it has arranged a financing of $850,000 to further advance its projects in BC, Yukon, Nevada and Peru.

“This financing is the last piece required to carry out our next phase of work at the Haldane silver project in the Keno District, Yukon. We recently received our permit and this will provide the funds for additional trenching and our first drill test of this high-grade silver target,” stated Jason Weber, P.Geo., President and CEO of Alianza. “This leads into a very active 2019 with programs planned on several projects.”

Financing Terms – Non-Flow Through Shares

Each non-flow through unit is comprised of one common share and one common share purchase warrant at $0.05. The warrant is valid for two years from the date of closing of the offering and is exercisable at $0.10 to acquire one common share.

Financing Terms – Flow Through Shares

The flow through shares will be eligible for a tax deduction for Canadian income tax payers for the 2018 year. These shares will be issued at $0.06 per share and the proceeds will be spent on qualifying exploration expenditures in British Columbia and Yukon Territory.

Finder’s fees of 7.5% in cash and 7.5% in finder’s warrants will be paid to eligible parties. Members of Alianza’s board of directors and management team will be participating in this offering.

Use of Proceeds

Alianza will use proceeds of this financing to advance its Haldane silver project in the Keno District, Yukon.  The 2018 field program identified a new silver vein target at the Bighorn Anomaly, 2.5 km from known mineralization at the MHVS targets where work extended the potential strike length to over 3.5 km. Trenching and/or drilling are planned for these targets.

A portion of the funds will also be used to advance earlier-stage projects to the drill-ready stage, to find partners for existing projects and to identify new exploration projects in key jurisdictions. Field programs are planned for the newly-acquired high-grade KRL gold property in the Golden Triangle, BC and are being considered for the Bellview, BP (Nevada) and Tim (Yukon) properties to identify and prioritize drill targets.
