June 14, 2023 2:46 PM EDT | Source: Electro Metals and Mining Inc.

Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - June 14, 2023) - Electro Metals and Mining Inc ("Electro Metals", or the "Company") is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement offering. The purpose of the financing is to advance the exploration of the Fabie - Magusi copper - zinc - silver - gold deposits near Rouyn - Noranda, Québec, to continue seeking advanced stage projects for development, and to satisfy conditions of the Letter of Intent signed with Shine Box Capital Inc. (TSXV: RENT) ("Shine Box") as part of the proposed reverse takeover ("RTO") transaction of Shine Box by Electro Metals.

Electro Metals plans to raise a minimum of $1,500,00 up to $3,500,000 (the "Offering"). Under the terms of the Offering, Electro Metals offers investors three choices by way of Subscription Receipts: (i) "Hard Dollar" units ("HD Units") priced at $0.30 (ii) "Flow through" units ("FT Units") priced at C$0.35 per unit, and (iii) "Critical Minerals flow-through" units ("CMFT Units") priced at C$0.40 per unit (collectively, the "Units"). Each of the Units will include one half of one common share purchase warrant. Each full purchase warrant will be exercisable, for three years from the date the shares start to trade on a recognized stock exchange, at an exercise price of $0.40. Electro Metals plans to raise gross proceeds of up to $3.5 million in any combination of Units, but including a minimum of $500,000 Hard Dollars. Electro will issue a minimum of 4,166,667 up to a maximum of 11,666,667 Units. Electro Metals will commence closings upon reaching the minimum and will continue closings while working through the RTO and listing process. The intent is to have the funds released to the Company as soon as is reasonably possible.

The funds of the Offering are to be held in escrow (the "Escrowed Funds") by the Escrow Agent until the receipt of approval and the listing of Electro Metals' Common Shares on a Canadian stock exchange (the "Escrow Release Condition"). In the event that the Escrow Release Condition is satisfied prior to 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on December 31, 2023 (the "Escrow Deadline"), the Subscription Receipts will automatically convert into the applicable number of Units with no further action required by the Subscriber. If the Escrow Release Condition is not satisfied by the Escrow Deadline, the Subscriber will be entitled to receive from the Escrow Agent a refund of the Escrowed Funds.

The proceeds of the Offering will be used for confirmation and expansion drilling of the Magusi and Fabie deposits, with the intent of advancing these toward a development decision, drill testing other targets, continued due diligence and negotiation on other advanced base metals projects, marketing, and for general working capital. The gross proceeds raised from the CMFT Units will be used to incur eligible "Canadian exploration expenses" ("CEE") that qualify as "flow-through critical mineral mining expenditures", and the proceeds from the FT Units will be used to incur CEE that qualify as "flow-through mining expenditures" as such terms are defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada). Electro Metals will pay a finder's fee of 7% cash commission and 7% finders' warrants. Each finders' warrant is exercisable into one common share at $0.40 for a period of 36 months from the date the Electro Metals shares are listed for trading on a Canadian public stock exchange.

"We are very pleased to be raising funds to commence the drilling programs at Fabie Magusi. This project has all the makings for a substantial mine development: Known resources that can be expanded and potentially put into production, nearby discovery potential along the 'favourable horizon', and untested targets for 'blue sky' drilling. This marks a first step in our plans to build Electro Metals into the next Canadian base metals producer, as we also continue to evaluate other near - term production opportunities. Electro Metals is pleased the Canadian government is taking bold steps to encourage investment in Canadian mining exploration through its Critical Minerals tax incentives," stated Chairman and CEO Daryl Hodges.
