Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - January 4, 2024) - Barksdale Resources Corp. (TSXV: BRO) (OTCQX: BRKCF) ("Barksdale" or the "Company") announces that further to its news release dated December 20, 2023 announcing the offering of common share units in the capital of the Company (the "Units") at a price of $0.40 per Unit, the Offering will take place on both a brokered basis (the "Brokered Offering") through Cormark Securities Inc. (the "Agent") and a non-brokered basis, with or without the participation of eligible finders (the "Non-Brokered Offering") (collectively, the "Offering"). The closing of the Offering is scheduled to occur on January [9], 2024, or on such date as may be agreed upon by the Issuer and the Agent, provided that in no event shall the closing be later than the 45th day following the date that the latest offering release in respect of the Offering is disseminated. The Non-Brokered Offering may complete in one or more tranches.

The Brokered Offering will be subject to the terms and conditions of an agency agreement to be entered into between the Company and the Agent, including a minimum amount of 5,000,000 Units issued for gross proceeds of a minimum of $2,000,000. With the inclusion of the Non-Brokered Offering, the Company may issue up to a total maximum of 12,500,000 Units under the Offering for maximum gross proceeds of up to $5,000,000. All terms with respect to the Units being issued in the Offering remain the same.

In connection with the Brokered Offering, the Company shall pay a cash commission to the Agent on the gross proceeds raised under the Brokered Offering and issue compensation warrants to the Agent (each, a "Compensation Warrant") based on the aggregate number of Units sold pursuant to the Brokered Offering, exercisable at $0.40 per Compensation Warrant for a term of three (3) years. In connection with the Non-Brokered Offering, the Company may issue finder warrants equal to 6% of the aggregate number of Units issued under the Non-Brokered Offering (each, a "Finder Warrant"), exercisable at $0.60 per Finder Warrant for a term of three (3) years.

Assuming the maximum number of Units sold under the Offering, the net proceeds of the Offering will be used for the ongoing drilling program at the Company's Sunnyside Property, property maintenance payments, trade payables and for general corporate purposes, as described further in the Offering Document (as defined below).

Closing of the Offering is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory and other approvals including the acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Subject to compliance with applicable regulatory requirements and in accordance with National Instrument 45-106 - Prospectus Exemptions ("NI 45-106"), the Units are being offered for sale to purchasers resident in Canada and/or other qualifying jurisdictions pursuant to the listed issuer financing exemption under Part 5A of NI 45-106 (the "Listed Issuer Financing Exemption"). Because the Offering is being completed pursuant to the Listed Issuer Financing Exemption, the securities issued to Canadian resident subscribers in the Offering will not be subject to a hold period pursuant to applicable Canadian securities laws.

An amended and restated copy of the offering document (the "Offering Document") related to the Offering is assessable under the Company's profile at and on the Company's website at Prospective investors should read this offering document before making an investment decision.
