The Vancouver-based company is currently engaged in a 90,000-metre drill program at Dixie, which Great Bear expects to continue through to 2020.
Both the offering of 1.75 million shares and 250,000 additional shares were fully subscribed, according to Great Bear.
The company issued another 2 million flow through shares that qualify as “Canadian exploration expenses” under the Income Tax Act, allowing purchasers to access tax benefits. The shares were issued at C$8.35 each for gross proceeds of C$16.7 million.
Shares are subject to a four-month and one day hold period set to expire on March 29, 2020.
The financing was led by underwriters Cormark Securities Inc and Canaccord Genuity Corp and included PI Financial Corp. Great Bear paid the syndicate a cash commission of 6% of the gross proceeds from the offering.
The offering is subject to final acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.
