TORONTO, March 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Collective Metals Inc. (CSE: COMT) (the “Company” or “Collective Metals”) is pleased to announce that the Company has closed a non-brokered private placement of units of the Company (the “Units”) through the issuance of 8,840,000 Units at $0.125 per Unit for gross proceeds of $1,105,000 (the “Offering”).

Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Share”) and one whole common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional Share at a price of $0.20 on or before March 23, 2025 (the “Expiry Day”). The Warrants are subject to an acceleration clause such that, if the price at which the Shares trade on the Canadian Securities Exchange is greater than $0.30 for 10 consecutive trading days after four months and one day from the closing date of the Offering, the Company may accelerate the Warrant expiry date by giving notice to the holder of the Warrants. In such case, the Warrants will expire at 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on the date which is the earlier of: (i) the 30th day after the date on which such notice is given by the Company; and (ii) the Expiry Day.

The Company has paid eligible finders (collectively, the “Finders”) a cash commission in the amount of $74,200, being 7% of the aggregate proceeds from the sale of Units to purchasers introduced to the Company by the Finders, and issued the Finders an aggregate of 593,600 share purchase warrants (the “Finder’s Warrants”), being 7% of the number of Units sold under the Offering to purchasers introduced by the Finders. Each Finder’s Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Share at a price of $0.20 per Share on the same terms as the Warrants.

All securities issued in connection with the Offering are subject to a statutory hold period of four-months and one day in accordance with applicable securities legislation ending on July 24, 2023. The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Offering for work on its properties, new projects or acquisitions, marketing and working capital.
