December 19, 2023 – TheNewswire – London, Ontario – Abitibi Metals Corp. (CSE:AMQ) (OTC:AMQFF) (FSE:4KG) (“Abitibi” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) to raise gross proceeds of up to C$4,000,000 through the issuance of up to 5,833,333 common shares of the Company that will be closed before December 29, 2023.

The Offering consists of two parts, a) $3,500,000 of charity flow-through common shares (“CFT Shares”) priced at C$0.70/share for the issuance of 5,000,000 CFT Shares and b) $500,000 of flow-through common shares (“FT Shares”) priced at C$0.60/share for the issuance of 833,333 FT Shares. The FT Shares and CFT Shares will qualify as “flow-through shares” (within the meaning of subsection 66(15) of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the “Tax Act”)).

Jonathon Deluce, CEO of Abitibi Metals, stated, “We are very grateful for the support Abitibi Metals has received from new and past shareholders. The closing of this financing, in conjunction with the recent financing where we welcomed strategic investors, will bring our treasury to over nine million dollars and put us in a position to execute a significantly expanded and more aggressive drill campaign in 2024 as we will be fully funded to drill over 20,000 metres.”

Mr. Deluce continued: “Our objective in the upcoming year will be to build on the previous 115,311 metres drilled to delineate the open-pit potential of the B26 deposit, while concurrently advancing and expanding the existing underground resource as we progress towards our goal of delivering a robust economic high-grade copper resource. Drilling is anticipated to commence in January, and the Company will provide an update shortly to detail the plans for its fully funded phase one drill program.”

The gross proceeds from the Flow-Through Offering and Charity Flow-Through Offering will be used to incur “Canadian exploration expenses” that are “flow-through mining expenditures” (as such terms are defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada)) related to the Company’s projects in Québec.

Finder’s fees in cash or securities may be paid on gross proceeds of the financing, as permitted by securities laws.

The securities issued in connection with the Offering are subject to the Company’s filing requirements with the Canadian Securities Exchange, and all securities will be subject to a four-month statutory hold period after closing.
