Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - April 15, 2024) - Chakana Copper Corp. (TSXV: PERU) (FSE: 1ZX) (the "Company" or "Chakana") announces that the Company has elected to exercise its acceleration right for all 20,884,495 common share purchase warrants of the Company (the "Warrants") issued on November 3, 2023. The Warrants were issued pursuant to the Company's first tranche of its private placement (the "Offering") of 20,541,495 units of the Company for gross proceeds of C$821,659.84, and are inclusive of 343,000 Warrants issued to finders in connection with the Offering. Each Warrant is exercisable to acquire one common share ("Common Share") at an exercise price of $0.06 per Common Share.

"The exercise of the warrants will add an additional $1,253,069.70 to the Company's treasury. Importantly, this will provide us with the ability to add additional exploration drilling to our current work program as we continue to limit non-exploration costs and prudently manage our treasury," stated President and CEO David Kelley.

Pursuant to the terms of the Warrants, the Company may accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants at any time following the date that is 4 months and one day after the issue date of the Warrants, if the closing price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") is for a period of 10 consecutive trading days greater than $0.09. As of the close of markets on April 12, 2024, the closing price of the Common Shares on the TSXV for 10 consecutive trading days has exceeded $0.09. Accordingly, the expiry date of the Warrants is accelerated to May 15, 2024.

An initial inferred resource estimate for seven breccia pipes was announced in January, 2022 (see news release dated February 23, 2022), with 6.73 Mt containing 191,000 ounces of gold, 11.7 million ounces of silver, and 130 million pounds of copper.
