Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - December 18, 2023) - C3 Metals Inc. (TSXV: CCCM) (OTCQB: CUAUF) ("C3 Metals" or the "Company") announces that further to its news release dated November 1, 2023, the Company has received approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") for its 1:13 share consolidation (the "Consolidation"). The Consolidation will be effective at market open on December 19, 2023. The Company will continue to trade under the symbol "CCCM" on the TSXV and under the symbol "CUAUF" on the OTC Markets.

Dan Symons, President and CEO, continued: "We are undertaking a share consolidation from a position of strength. We have been providing positive drill results from our Bellas Gate project in Jamaica leading up to this consolidation. After closing an oversubscribed and upsized private placement of $8.05 million on November 15, 2023, we believe we are in an excellent position to continue to gain momentum through a well-funded and expanded drill program in Jamaica. Cleaning up the share structure is important to attract new institutional investors. With our recent positive exploration results, combined with the news flow we expect to generate from a well-funded and extended exploration program, we believe it is the right time to consolidate our share structure since we are doing so from a position of strength."

As a result of the Consolidation, the number of outstanding common shares ("Common Shares") of the Company will be reduced from 804,504,235 to approximately 61,884,941, subject to adjustment for rounding. No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the Consolidation. If a holder of shares would otherwise be entitled to a fraction of a share, then the number of post-consolidation shares issuable to such shareholder shall be rounded down to the next lower whole number. Each shareholder's percentage ownership in the Company and proportionate voting power will remain unchanged after the Consolidation, except for minor changes and adjustments resulting from the treatment of any fractional shares. No cash consideration will be paid in respect of fractional shares. The exercise or conversion price and/or the number of shares issuable with respect to any of the Company's outstanding convertible securities will be proportionately adjusted in connection with the Consolidation.

Common Shares held in uncertificated form by non-registered shareholders through brokerage accounts will be converted at the consolidation ratio through each shareholder's brokerage account. Non-registered shareholders should consult with their broker for further information. A letter of transmittal describing the process by which registered shareholders may obtain new certificates representing their consolidated Common Shares has been mailed to registered shareholders by the Company's transfer agent TSX Trust Company.
