Dakota Gold Corp. Establishes ATM Equity Program
October 21, 2022
LEAD, SOUTH DAKOTA – Dakota Gold Corp. (NYSE American: DC) (“Dakota Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an Equity Distribution Agreement (the “Equity Distribution Agreement”) with BMO Capital Markets Corp. and Canaccord Genuity LLC (collectively, the “Sales Agents”), to establish an at-the-market equity program (the “ATM Program”). Under the ATM Program, the Company may offer and sell shares of common stock ("Common Stock") having an aggregate offering price of up to $50,000,000, from time to time through any of the Sales Agents, acting as agent.
Sales under the ATM Program may be made from time to time at the Company’s discretion. Any Common Stock sold under the ATM Program will be sold at the prevailing market price at the time of sale, when sold through the NYSE American LLC (“NYSE American”) or any other existing trading market for the Common Stock in the United States. The net proceeds of any sales of Common Stock under the ATM Program will be used for working capital and other general corporate purposes. The Company may sell Common Stock under this program from time to time based on market conditions, although the Company is not under an obligation to sell any Common Stock.
The offerings will be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) pursuant to the Company’s shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-266155), as supplemented by a prospectus supplement dated October 21, 2022, relating to the sale of the Common Stock. Prospective investors should read the prospectus contained in the registration statement on Form S-3, the prospectus supplement and other documents the Company has filed or submitted with the SEC (some of which are incorporated by reference into the prospectus and prospectus supplement) for more complete information about the Company and the ATM Program, including the risks associated with investing in the Company.
