In a brief statement, the junior explorer said it would now issue 24 million shares, up from 19.25 million, still at the same price of C$0.65 each.
Well known Canadian investor Eric Sprott is taking part in the financing and will increase his investment to hold around 19.9% of Aftermath's shares after the closing of the placement, the firm said.
"The company intends to use the net proceeds for exploration of the Berenguela silver-copper project in Peru, and the Challacollo and Cachinal silver-gold projects in Chile, and for general working capital and business development," it added.
At the end of July this year, Aftermath revealed it had inked a binding letter of intent with SSR Mining to buy the Berenguela silver-copper project in Puno, Peru.
It will buy the Peruvian holding company Sociedad Minera Berenguela SA for nearly US$13 million in staged cash payments, an investment in Aftermath shares and net smelter return royalties.
Aftermath said the Berenguela silver–copper project is an epithermal polymetallic carbonate-replacement deposit with a total tenement package of 6,594 hectares.
Shares in Toronto added over 6% to C$0.85 each.
