May 17, 2024                                                                                     TSXV: ZON

Further to press releases dated May 1 and May 14, 2024, Zonte Metals Inc (TSXV: ZON) (“Zonte” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has increased the size of its previously announced  non-brokered private placement to 4,687,220 units including 1,705,000 common share units at a price of $0.08 per Common Share Unit (“CS Unit”) and 2,982,220 flow through share units at a price of $0.09 per Flow-through Share Unit (“FT Units”) (together, the “Offering”), for total proceeds of $404,800. Each Unit consists of one common share and one common share purchase warrant expiring May 3, 2026.  The warrants accompanying the CS Units are exercisable at a price of $0.11 and the warrants accompanying the FT Units are exercisable at a price of $0.15.  The transaction remains subject to TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) approval and, following completion of the Offering, the Company will have 76,912,181 shares issued and outstanding.  

In connection with securities sold pursuant to the Offering, the Company will pay $28,672 in cash and issue 330,578 Finders’ Warrants to three Eligible Finders, all of whom are at arm’s length to the Company.  Each Finders’ Warrant is exercisable until November 3, 2025, to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.18 per share.  Finders’ Fees paid in connection with the Offering are subject to and in accordance with Exchange and regulatory policies.

The Offering was completed in three tranches which included the issuance of 3,347,220 units on May 3, 2024, 715,000 units on May 13, 2024 and 625,000 units on May 16, 2024.  All securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a four-month and one day statutory hold period.

An insider of the Company acquired 200,000 FT Units and 100,000 CS Units of the Offering for proceeds to the Company of $26,000. Any participation by insiders in the Offering constitutes 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 Copper Property, in Newfoundland and Labrador.
