In connection with the financing, BMR issued a promissory note to the Lender, which matures on September 15, 2023, and bears interest at a rate of 8% per annum, with interest payable at the maturity of the note. The proceeds of the financing will be used for general working capital.

Martin Kostuik, Battery's CEO and Director stated "we are delighted to have such strong support from our major shareholder provided by this short-term debt financing. This funding will allow BMR to continue advancing the Punitaqui copper mining complex towards a profitable and sustainable restart and most importantly, gives us more flexibility as we seek the final non-dilutive funding required to restart Punitaqui, expected in the next one to two months.

The Lender or its affiliates have control or direction over securities of the Company carrying more than 10% of the voting rights attached to the Company's outstanding voting securities. Accordingly, the Loan is considered a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (" MI 61-101 "). The Company as its securities are listed for trading on the TSXV. The Company has relied on the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a), 5.5(b), 5.7(a) and 5.7(f).

In addition, BMR is pleased to announce that the interest settlement agreements with certain creditors of the Company previously announced on April 14, 2023, have been approved by the TSX Venture Exchange (the " TSXV "). Pursuant to these agreements, the Company has agreed to issue an aggregate of 5,217,186 common shares (" Shares ") in the capital of the Company to settle $830,037.80 of accrued interest owed to certain holders of BMR's convertible debentures (collectively, the " Interest Settlement Transactions ") as follows:

• 294,298 Shares at a deemed price of C$0.19 per share.

• 1,138,044 Shares at a deemed price of C$0.18 per share.

• 1,575,758 Shares at a deemed price of C$0.165 per share.

• 2,209,086 Shares at a deemed price of C$0.14 per share.

The share price used to determine the number of shares issued to the holder of each tranche of the convertible debentures, was the closing share price of the Company's common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange on the one-year anniversary of the issuance of each convertible debenture tranche. All securities issued pursuant to the Interest Settlement Transactions will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance, in accordance with applicable securities legislation.

Brunswick Launches Maiden Drilling Campaign at Elrond

Brunswick Launches Maiden Drilling Campaign at Elrond

Brunswick Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: BRW, OTCQB: BRWXF; " BRW " or the " Company ") is pleased to announce that it has begun construction of a winter road for a drilling campaign at the Elrond project, located in Eeyou Istchee-James Bay Region of Quebec. This maiden drilling campaign will begin in March and will test the Arwen spodumene-bearing pegmatite that was discovered during prospecting last September by the BRW team. The Arwen showing and the Elrond property have never been drilled.

The Arwen pegmatite is exposed over a surface area measuring approximately 250 meters by 100 meters, dipping shallowly to the north. The outcrop is well mineralized and three representative grab samples returned values between 1 and 3% Li 2 O. The pegmatite remains open in all directions (see press release dated October 3 rd , 2023). Previous to drilling activities, a high-resolution airborne magnetic survey was flown in the fall of 2023 and suggests that the Arwen showing is emplaced in a favorable structural corridor that is 4km long and 500m wide. The target area is proximal to infrastructure, located approximately 12km from the Billy-Diamond Highway and drilling activities will be ground supported via a winter road.
