Laurion Mineral Exploration Inc. (TSX.V: LME) (OTCPINK: LMEFF) ("LAURION" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously-announced non-brokered private placement (the " Private Placement ") consisting of flow-through units (the " FT Units "). Pursuant to the fully-subscribed Private Placement, the Corporation issued 766,666 FT Units at a subscription price of $0.75 per FT Unit, for aggregate gross proceeds to the Corporation of approximately $575,000 .
The Private Placement resulted from strong investor demand for the Corporation's previous private placement, which closed on December 8, 2021 on substantially similar terms. Following the closing of the Private Placement, LAURION has raised an aggregate of approximately $2,575,000 in gross proceeds from its two financings completed in December 2021 .
Each FT Unit consists of one common share of the Corporation issued as a "flow-through share" (as defined in subsection 66(15) of the Income Tax Act ( Canada ) (the " Tax Act ")) (each, a " FT Share ") and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each, a " Warrant "). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one non flow-through common share of the Corporation at a price of $0.82 per share for a period of 12 months from the date of issuance.
The gross proceeds allocable to the FT Shares comprising the FT Units will be used for "Canadian exploration expenses" (within the meaning of the Tax Act), which will qualify, once renounced, as "flow-through mining expenditures", as defined in the Tax Act, which will be renounced with an effective date of no later than December 31, 2021 (provided the subscriber deals at arm's length with the Corporation at all relevant times) to the initial purchasers of FT Units in an aggregate amount not less than the gross proceeds raised from the issue of the FT Units which are allocable to the FT Shares.
Pursuant to the Private Placement, a certain director of the Corporation subscribed for 133,333 FT Units for gross proceeds to the Corporation of $100,000 , which is considered a related party transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (" MI 61-101 "). Full details of this transaction will be available on the System for Electronic Disclosure by Insiders (SEDI) at: www.sedi.ca . The Private Placement is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the subject matter of the Private Placement, nor the consideration paid, exceed 25% of the Corporation's market capitalization. No additional insiders or related parties of the Corporation participated in the Private Placement. No new insiders or control persons were created in connection with the closing of the Private Placement.
The Corporation did not pay any finders' fees or issue any finder's warrants in connection with the Private Placement.
Pursuant to applicable Canadian securities laws, all securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement are subject to a hold period of four months and one day, expiring on May 1, 2022 . The Private Placement remains subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the " TSXV ").

The Corporation currently has 247,086,849 outstanding shares, of which approximately 81% of LAURION's issued and outstanding shares are owned and controlled by Insiders who are eligible investors under the "Friends and Family" categories.
LAURION's emphasis is on the development of its flagship project, the 100% owned mid-stage 47 km 2 Ishkoday Project, and its gold-silver and gold-rich polymetallic mineralization with a significant upside potential. The mineralization on Ishkoday is open at depth beyond the current core-drilling limit of -200 m from surface, based on the historical mining to a -685 m depth, in the past producing Sturgeon River Mine. The Brenbar Property, which was acquired in 2020 and is contiguous with the Ishkoday Property, hosts the historic Brenbar Mine. LAURION believes the mineralization to be a direct extension of mineralization from the Ishkoday Property.
