Rouyn-Noranda, Québec, Canada, December 22, 2023 – Fokus Mining Corporation (“Fokus” or the “Company”) (TSXV: FKM, OTCQB: FKMCF, FSE: F7E1) is pleased to announce that it has held the closing of its previously-announced private placement by issuing 11,250,000 units (the “Units”) at a price of $0.04 per Unit, for gross proceeds to Fokus of $450,000. Each Unit is comprised of one common share of Fokus and one common share purchase warrant.

  • 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 this financing will be used for investor relations activities. 

In connection with the closing of the private placement, Fokus paid cash commissions to Canaccord Genuity Corp. in an amount of $1,880, which represents 2% of the gross proceeds raised from the sale of 2,350,000 Units through such securities dealer.
