2022-05-11 05:02:32

ROUYN-NORANDA, QC, May 11, 2022 /CNW Telbec/ – Fokus Mining Corporation (“Fokus” or the “Company“) (TSXV: FKM) (OTCQB: FKMCF) (FSE: F7E1) is pleased to announce that it has held a first closing of a non-brokered private placement in which it issued 2,252,500 units (the “Units“) at a price of $0.08 per Unit, for aggregate gross proceeds to Fokus of $180,200, and 2,354,500 “flow-through units (the “FT Units“) at a price of $0.10 per FT Unit, for aggregate gross proceeds to Fokus of $235,450. Each of the Units is comprised of one common share and one common share purchase warrant (the “Unit Warrants“) and each of the FT Units is comprised of one common share and one-half of a common share purchase warrant (together with the Unit Warrants, the “Warrants“). Each Warrant entitles its holder to acquire one additional common share of Fokus at a price of $0.12 for a period of two years from the closing date. Fokus intends to use the proceeds from the FT Units for exploration of its Galloway property located in the Province of Québec and the proceeds from the Units for working capital purposes.

Jean Rainville CEO and President of Fokus states: “with this first tranche of the private placement and including the tax credits receivable of an amount of approximately $280,000 as of the date hereof, Fokus has sufficient funding to continue to advance its exploration program on the Galloway property where the objective is to produce an independent resource estimate. As pricing of the placements was done only a few days ago, we expect to hold a second closing in the coming weeks with the emphasis placed on the Units. Once the next closing has taken place we will determine and disclose the scope of the next exploration program.”

An officer and director of Fokus (the “Insider“) purchased, directly and indirectly, 100,000 Units for a total consideration of $8,000. The issuance of Units to the Insider constitutes a related party transaction, but is exempt from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“) as Fokus’ securities are not listed on any stock exchange identified in Section 5.5(b) of MI 61-101 and neither the fair market value of the Units issued to the Insider, nor the fair market value of the entire private placement, exceeds 25% of Fokus’ market capitalization. Fokus did not file a material change report with respect to the participation of the Insider at least 21 days prior to the closing of the private placement as the insider participation was not determined at that time.

Additional closings of the private placement may be held until June 6, 2022, subject to a maximum of 28,997,500 Units at a price of $0.08 per Unit and a maximum of 1,645,500 FT Units at a price of $0.10 per FT Unit to subscribers in Québec, for total maximum gross proceeds of $2,484,350.

As a result of the first closing of the private placement, there are 76,454,087 common shares of Fokus issued and outstanding. Under applicable securities legislation, the securities issued in the private placement are subject to a four-month hold period, expiring on September 11, 2022.
