RJK Announces Closing of Private Placement

Kirkland Lake, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - May 20, 2022) - RJK Explorations Ltd. (TSXV: RJX.A) (OTC Pink: RJKAF) ("RJK" or the "Company") announces that it has closed a non-brokered private placement offering of units (each, a "Unit"), raising $432,503.17 from the issuance of 3,931,847 Units at a price of $0.11 per Unit (the "Offering").

Each Unit consists of one Class A Subordinate Voting Share in the capital of the Company ("Common Share") and one Common Share purchase warrant ("Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.25 until May 20, 2025. The proceeds will be used for general corporate and working capital purposes.

As part of the Offering, Great Lakes Nickel Limited ("GLN") subscribed for and funded the purchase of an additional 4,125,516 Units (the "Additional Units") for proceeds of $453,806.76 (the "Additional Funds") which Additional Funds are being held in trust pending GLN's satisfaction of certain requirements of the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV"). These requirements include the filing by the control person of GLN of a personal information form, and GLN's provision of an undertaking to TSXV to not exercise warrants held by it if such exercise would cause GLN's ownership of Common Shares to exceed 10% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares. Upon GLN satisfying the TSXV's requirements, the Additional Funds will be released to the Company and the Additional Units will be issued.

All securities issued pursuant to the Offering, are subject to a statutory hold period ending four months and a day from the date of issuance thereof. The Offering remains subject to final acceptance by the TSXV.

The securities offered pursuant to the Offering have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements.
