Rouyn-Noranda, Québec, Canada, December 4, 2023 – Fokus Mining Corporation (“Fokus” or the “Company”) (TSXV: FKM, OTCQB: FKMCF, FSE: F7E1) is pleased to announce the launch of a private placement (the “Private Placement”) of up to 11,250,000 units (the “Units”) at a price of $0.04 per Unit, for aggregate gross proceeds to Fokus of up to $450,000. Each of the Units will be comprised of one common share and one common share purchase warrant (the “Unit Warrants”). Each Unit Warrant will entitle its holder to acquire one additional common share of Fokus at a price of $0.06 for a period of four years from the closing date. 

Jean Rainville, President and CEO of Fokus stated: “We have to continue to expand our resource on Galloway by looking at extensions of the mineralized zones where a resource has been delineated and we have so many other targets that are yet to be tested on this large property.”

Fokus intends to use the proceeds from the Private Placement for a drilling program on its Galloway property located in the Province of Québec, for geological advisory services and for working capital purposes.

Below is a summary of the major categories applied to the gross proceeds as required by Policy 1.1 of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”):

  • 56% – Drilling program on the Galloway property; 
  • 7% – Geological advisory services;
  • 7% – Management fees for services to be provided by insiders of Fokus; and
  • 30% – Working capital. 

None of the proceeds of any financing will be used for investor relations activities. No finder fees or commissions are expected to be paid in connection with the Private Placement. 

Pursuant to applicable Canadian securities laws and in accordance with the Exchange policies, all securities issued under this Private Placement will be subject to applicable resale restrictions under applicable securities laws and to the Exchange hold period. The Private Placement remains subject to the approval of the Exchange.
