Northern Sphere Mining Corp. Announces Proposed Private Placement

Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - May 25, 2018) - Northern Sphere Mining Corp. (CSE: NSM) (OTCQB: NSMCF) ("Northern Sphere" or the "Company") announced today that it proposes to raise up to $500,000 through a non-brokered private placement of up to 5,000,000 units ("Units") of the Company at a price of $0.10 per Unit (the "Private Placement"). Finders fees may be payable in connection with the Private Placement and the Private Placement may be closed in tranches.

Each Unit will be comprised of one common share ("Common Share") of the Company and one Common Share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will be exercisable to acquire one Common Share (a "Warrant Share") for a period of eighteen months following the date of closing at an exercise price of $0.20 per Warrant Share, subject to adjustments in certain events. The Warrants will be subject to an acceleration clause such that, if the closing price of the Common Shares is equal to or greater than $0.25 per share for a period of 10 consecutive trading days, the Company shall have the option, but not the obligation, to effect for an accelerated expiration date that shall be 20 calendar days from the issuance of a notice of acceleration.

Common Shares issued pursuant to the Private Placement and Warrant Shares issuable upon the due exercise of the Warrants (including those Common Shares, and Warrant Shares issuable upon due exercise of the Warrants, in each case issued on the conversion of outstanding debt) will be subject to a four-month hold period from the date of closing of the Private Placement.

The Company anticipates that the net proceeds from the Private Placement will be used for the ongoing development of mining assets and for general corporate purposes.
