June 15, 2022, Vancouver, BC – Amarc Resources Ltd. (“Amarc” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: AHR; OTCQB: AXREF) announces that that further to the news release dated May 26, 2022, it has now been funded under a Second Loan Amendment Agreement dated May 25, 2022, as amended, pursuant to which it has borrowed a further $100,000 from director Robert Dickinson (the “Lender”), increasing the total amount owed to him to $1.1 million. The Loan is unsecured, will bear interest at a rate of 10% per annum and is repayable on or before the earlier of November 26, 2024, and the occurrence of a default or on achievement of financing milestones. A separate 6-month facility for 12% interest is included in the Loan Amendment, which can be accessed by Borrower upon determination of Borrower’s entitlement to near-term receipt of certain cash tax credit refunds related to Borrower having incurred Canadian Exploration Expenditures. In connection with the Loan Amarc will issue to the Lender a loan bonus in the form of 1,176,470 warrants (the "Bonus Warrants"), each entitling the holder to acquire one common share of Amarc for approximately 29 months (to November 26, 2024) at a price of $0.085 per share, subject to a pro rata reduction of the term-to expiry of the warrants if the loan is repaid before the due date. The Bonus Warrants will be subject to a four month hold period commencing June 14, 2022. The transaction is exempt from valuation and minority approval requirements of MI 61-101 by virtue of being a transaction involving less than 25% of Amarc’s market capitalization.
The Loan proceeds are being used to pay the initial option requirement of $100,000 for a five BC mineral claims group option dated May 16, 2022, from an arm’s length optionor. Total additional option payments are a further $900,000 at $100,000 per year, payable on or before May 31 of each year (total option payments are $1,000,000). The property is subject to a 2% NSR royalty, of which 1.5% is capped at $10 million. Amarc plans an immediate geophysical work over the five BC mineral claims in order to keep them in good standing.
