Gossan Completes Private Placement

Winnipeg, Manitoba--(Newsfile Corp. - August 21, 2020) - Gossan Resources Limited (TSXV: GSS) (FSE: GSR) (Xetra: GSR) (the "Company") has completed a previously announced non-brokered private placement offering (the "Offering") of 3,400,000 units ("Units") of the Company at a purchase price of $0.05 per Unit, for aggregate gross proceeds of $170,000. Each Unit consists of one common share ("Common Share") in the capital of the Company and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant") of the Company. Each Warrant is exercisable to acquire one Common Share at a price of $0.08 for a period of two (2) years from the closing date of the Offering.

The net proceeds from the Offering will be used for general corporate and working capital purposes. The closing of the Offering is subject to certain conditions including the receipt of all necessary approvals including the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. All securities issued in connection with the Offering will have a hold period of four months and one day from the closing date.

The Offering constituted a "related party transaction" as such term is defined by Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101") as Douglas Reeson ("Reeson"), the Chief Executive Officer of the Company, subscribed for an aggregate of 200,000 Units pursuant to the Offering. Prior to the completion of the Offering, Reeson held, directly or indirectly, 6,671,000 Common Shares of the Company and 800,000 stock options of the Company, representing approximately 19.73% of the Company's issued and outstanding Common Shares on a non-diluted basis and approximately 21.40% of the Company's issued and outstanding Common Shares on a partially diluted basis. Upon completion of the Offering, Reeson now beneficially owns and controls, directly or indirectly, 6,961,000 Common Shares, 100,000 Warrants and 800,000 stock options, representing approximately 18.36% of the Company's issued and outstanding Common Shares on a non-diluted basis and approximately 20.25% of the Company's issued and outstanding Common Shares on a partially diluted basis. The Warrants comprising part of the Units purchased by Reeson pursuant to the Offering contain a blocker provision preventing Reeson from exercising any convertible securities of the Company, in whole or in part, if, after giving effect to such exercise, Reeson would own that number of Common Shares which is 20% or greater of the issued and outstanding Common Shares of the Company, immediately after giving effect to such exercise. The Company is relying on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as the fair market value of the participation in the Offering by Reeson does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101. The Company did not file a material change report in respect of the related party transaction at least 21 days before the closing of the Offering, which the Company deems reasonable in the circumstances in order to complete the Offering in an expeditious manner.

The Company paid an eligible person (the "Finder") a cash commission, payable in 256,000 Units, being equal to 8% of the aggregate gross proceeds of the Offering with respect to the subscribers introduced to the Company by such Finder. In addition, the Company issued an aggregate of 272,000 finders warrants (the "Finder Warrants"), being equal to 8% of the aggregate number of Units sold under the Offering attributable to the Finder. Each Finder Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one Unit at a price of $0.05 per Unit for a period of two (2) years from the closing date of the Offering. The Units underlying the Finder Warrants consist of one Common Share and one-half of one Warrant, exercisable at a price of $0.08 per Common Share for a period of two (2) years from the date of issuance.

The securities being offered pursuant to the Offering have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United states or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
