Alpha Exploration Announces Private Placement Financing

Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - August 2, 2022) - Alpha Exploration Ltd. (TSXV: ALEX) ("Alpha" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement financing of units ("Units") at a price of C$0.70 per Unit (the "Offering Price"), for aggregate gross proceeds of up to C$3,600,000 million and a maximum of 5,142,857 Units (the "Private Placement").

Each Unit is comprised of one ordinary share (each, a "Share") of the Corporation and one whole ordinary share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one additional Share (a "Warrant Share") at an exercise price of $1.05 per Warrant Share (the "Exercise Price") for a period of 24 months immediately following the Closing Date (as defined below).

The Corporation expects to close the Private Placement on or before September 8, 2022 (the "Closing Date").

In connection with the Private Placement, Alpha may pay certain arm's length parties a cash finder's fee payment equal to up to 6.0% of the Units that are sold to subscribers introduced by such parties.

The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to fund ongoing exploration work on the Kerkasha project located in Eritrea, operating and administrative expenses, working capital and general corporate purposes.

In connection with its participation in a previous private placement of the Corporation, which was disclosed in a press release dated April 13, 2022, the Corporation granted a participation right to Crescat Portfolio Management LLC ("Crescat"), which provided Crescat the right to purchase additional securities of the Corporation in future offerings of securities of the Corporation to maintain its proportional percentage, pursuant to the terms of a participation rights agreement dated March 10, 2022. The Corporation has received a binding commitment from Crescat for subscriptions totaling C$700,000.00 in the Private Placement, such subscriptions subject to the conditions outlined below.

Completion of the Private Placement is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals including the approval of the TSXV. The TSXV has not approved the Offering Price or the Exercise Price and these remain subject to the change. The Shares, Warrants and the Warrant Shares will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus one day from the Closing Date, in accordance with applicable securities legislation.

It is expected that certain Insiders of the Corporation (as such term is defined under the policies of the TSXV) may participate in the Private Placement. The participation of Insiders in the Private Placement will constitute a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Corporation intends to rely upon exemptions from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements of MI 61-101 based on a determination that the fair market value of the Private Placement, insofar as it involves the related parties, does not exceed $1,800,000.
