Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share“) and one half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant“). Each Warrant shall be exercisable to acquire one (1) additional Common Share at an exercise price of C$0.16 for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance (the “Expiry Date“).

In connection with the Offering, the Company may pay certain eligible arm’s length parties who introduce subscribers to the Offering (each, a “Finder“): up to 7% cash fees, and (2) up to 7% finders’ warrants (“Finders’ Warrants“). Each Finder’s Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.11 for a period of 24 months.

Eric Sprott through 2176423 Ontario Ltd., a corporation which is beneficially owned by him, has committed to subscribe for 27,272,727 Units in the Offering for an aggregate purchase price of $2,999,999.97. The participation by Mr. Sprott will be considered a related party transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“). The Private Placement will be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the securities issued to related parties nor the consideration for such securities will exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.

The Offering is scheduled to close on or about April 10, 2024, and is subject to all regulatory approvals, including the approvals of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Units are being offered by way of private placement pursuant to exemptions from prospectus requirements under applicable securities laws. The securities issued and issuable pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a four month and one day hold period from the date of issuance. The Warrants and Finders’ Warrants will not be listed for trading. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to advance drilling at La Parrilla, to perform technical studies for a potential restart in 2025, and to fund ongoing operations.

The securities offered have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or applicable state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold to persons in the United States absent registration or an exemption from such registration requirements. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

Forward-looking statements may be identified by such terms as “believes”, “anticipates”, “expects”, “estimates”, “may”, “could”, “would”, “will”, or “plan”.

In making the forward-looking statements included in this news release, the Company have applied several material assumptions, including that the Offering will close on the anticipated terms or at all; that the Units will have the anticipated terms; that the Company will use the net proceeds of the Offering as anticipated; that the Company will receive all necessary approvals in respect of the Offering, the Company´s financial condition and development plans do not change because of unforeseen events, and management’s ability to execute its business strategy and no unexpected or adverse regulatory changes with respect to La Parrilla. Forward-looking statements and information are subject to various known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond the ability of the Company to control or predict, that may cause the Company’s actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from those expressed or implied thereby, and are developed based on assumptions about such risks, uncertainties and other factors set out herein.
