The private placement consists of units for a total of $100,000 at $0.035 per share. Each unit contains a common share of the Company, a full warrant exercisable at $0.05 for 2 years and a proportionate share of a Net Smelter Royalty (“NSR”) on the Telamayu project. Proceeds will be used for general working capital as well as test work associated with the project. The Company continues to market its debenture offering that also includes an NSR on the Telamayu Tailings project.

An insider of the Company participated in the financing for $10,000.

Project Overview

The Telamayu project involves the environmental remediation of the “Antiguo” tailings and a Company option on the larger “Nuevo” tailings, both situated at the Telamayu mill site near the town of Atocha in the Department of Potosi in Bolivia. As part of the remediation process BacTech will recover silver, tin, and copper utilizing a conventional processing technology.

The existing Telamayu mill concentrator has generated the Antiguo and Nuevo tailings by processing mineralized material from the surrounding mines for over 80 years. There is considerable infrastructure at the mill site including high voltage power, rail, mill housing, and a local workforce. The current infrastructure will contribute to a reduction in capital costs of the project. Currently metallurgical test work is underway to determine the percentage of metal to be recoverable.

In addition, bioleach test work on concentrates and tailings material from the Ponce Enriques area of southern Ecuador continues at Laurentian University in Sudbury, Canada.
