Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - June 11, 2024) - Barksdale Resources Corp. (TSXV: BRO) ("Barksdale" or the "Company") is pleased to announce an increase in the previously announced non-brokered private placement financing of 26,666,667 units (see news release dated June 5, 2024) to 37,500,000 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.15 per Unit for gross proceeds to the Company of $5,625,000 (the "Offering") due to significant demand.

The remainder of the terms of the Offering are unchanged. Each Unit will consist of one common share of Barksdale (a "Common Share") and one Common Share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"), whereby each Warrant shall entitle the holder to acquire one Common Share at a price of $0.23 for a period of three years from the date of issuance.

The proceeds of the Offering will be used to finance exploration activities at the Company's properties in Arizona as well as for working capital and general corporate purposes. Closing is expected to occur on or about June 25, 2024. All securities issued by Barksdale will be subject to a minimum hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance and completion of the Offering is subject to customary closing conditions, including acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"). Finder's fees may be applicable to the Offering.

The securities described herein have not been, and will not be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act"), or any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold within the United States except in compliance with the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or pursuant to available exemptions therefrom. This release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy of any securities in the United States.

Related Party Participation in the Offering

Certain insiders of the Company expect to participate in the Offering. The participation by insiders in the Offering constitutes a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Company is relying on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as neither the fair market value of the securities purchased by insiders, nor the consideration for the securities paid by such insiders, will exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization. The Company expects that closing of the Offering will occur within 21 days of this announcement and that it will not file a material change report in respect of the related party transaction at least 21 days before the closing. The Company deems this circumstance reasonable in order to complete the Offering in an expeditious manner. The Offering has been unanimously approved by the Company's board of directors. Further information regarding the interest in the Offering of every related party and the effect that the Offering will have on their percentage of securities of the Company will be provided once finalized.
