Zonte Metals Completes Non-Brokered Private Placement

January 2, 2024                                                                                     TSXV: ZON

Zonte Metals Inc (TSXV: ZON) (“Zonte” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has completed its previously announced non-brokered private placement and, subject to TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) approval, has issued 250,000 Common Share Units at a price of $0.065 and 2,395,000 Flow-through Share Units at a price of $0.08 (the “Offering”) for total proceeds of $207,850.  Each Unit consists of one common share and one share purchase warrant, expiring December 27, 2025, entitling the holder to acquire one additional common share at a price of $0.14.  Following completion of the Offering, the Company has 72,224,961 shares issued and outstanding.  

In connection with securities sold pursuant to the Offering, Zonte will pay aggregate finders’ fees of $12,740 in cash and will issue 159,250 Finders’ Warrants to two Eligible Finders, both of whom are at arm’s length to the Company.  Each Finders’ Warrant is exercisable until June 27, 2025, to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.20 per share, subject to Exchange Approval.  All Finders’ Fees are subject to and in accordance with Exchange and regulatory policies.

All securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a four-month and one day statutory hold period.

Certain insiders of the Company (two individuals) acquired 150,000 Common Share Units and 120,000 Flow-through Share Units in the Offering for combined proceeds to the Company of $19,350, representing 9.3% of the Total Proceeds. Participation by insiders in the Offering constituted a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“).  However, as insider participation represented less than 25% of the proceeds of the Offering, the Company relied on the exemptions available under the instrument and such participation was exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for working capital purposes and exploration at the Cross Hills Iron Oxide Copper Gold Property, in Newfoundland and Labrador.
