Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - May 15, 2024) - GT Resources Inc. (TSXV: GT) (OTCQB: CGTRF) (FSE: 7N1) (the "Company" or "GT Resources") is pleased to announce a non-brokered flow-through private placement ("Private Placement") for gross proceeds of up to C$1,800,000 to be sold to accredited investors of the Company.

"The summer field season at the Canalask copper-nickel project, located in the Yukon, is scheduled to begin in July.

"With a C$1.8 million budget, we plan to drill up to 2,000 meters to test the Electromagnetic ("EM") plate that was defined in the 2023 field season, followed by downhole EM surveys to locate massive copper-nickel sulphide mineralization. Our objective is to expand on the historical resource estimate of 400,000 tonnes at 1.35% nickel. Although copper values were not reported in the historical resource estimate, significant copper mineralization occurs on the project. Massive sulphide samples collected by the Company in 2021 from near the historic Footwall deposit assayed up to 6.1% Cu, 0.15% Ni, 0.06% Co, 1.6 g/t Au, 28.1 g/t Ag (see news release November 17, 2022).

"This 'flow-through' financing preserves the Company's 'hard dollar' treasury and thus optionality at a significant premium to the 30-day VWAP.

"At March 31, 2024, the Company had a 'hard dollar' cash balance of C$10.4 million," stated Derrick Weyrauch, President and CEO.


The Private Placement has been arranged to raise aggregate gross proceeds of up to $1,800,000 through the issuance of up to 26,092,629 Common Shares (each a "Common Share") of the Company at a price of $0.069 per Common Share. Each Common Share (a "FT Share") will be issued as a "flow-through share" (as defined in subsection 66(15) of the Income Tax Act (Canada)) (the "Tax Act").

An amount equal to the gross proceeds from the issuance of the FT Shares will be used to incur "Canadian exploration expenses" (as this term is defined in the Tax Act) that the Company may renounce pursuant to the Tax Act with an effective date not later than December 31, 2024, and that qualify either as "flow-through mining expenditures" (as this term is defined in the Tax Act) or as "flow-through critical mineral mining expenditures" (as this term is defined in subsection 127(9) of the Tax Act), as determined in the sole discretion of the Company.

The Company may pay finders' fees in accordance with the policies of the TSX-V.

Proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for exploration activities on its Yukon and/or Ontario mineral properties. All Flow-Through Shares issued pursuant to the offering will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day in accordance with applicable securities laws.

Closing of the Private Placement is subject to certain customary conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all required regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about June 15, 2024.

Exploration on the project dates to the 1950's when the Canalask footwall zone was originally discovered, drilled and partially developed. A historical resource estimate on the Main Zone is quoted at 400,000 tonnes at 1.35% Nickel by Discovery Mines Ltd. in 1968 (Yukon Assessment Report 094599). Early Metallurgical floatation test work returned concentrate grades as high as 19.7% Nickel (Yukon Assessment Report 093256).

Readers are cautioned that the Company has not attempted to verify the historic mineral resource estimate and therefore readers should not place any reliance on the historical estimate. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as a current mineral resource. The Company is not treating the historical estimate as current mineral resource.
