Precious Metals

Dear Shareholders of Gambier Gold Corp. (TSXV: GGAU) (the "Company"), we are significant shareholders of the Company representing approximately 19.872% of the issued and outstanding capital of the Company. In addition, we have engaged with shareholders and currently have arranged support from a total of approximately 40.196% of the issued and outstanding capital of the Company. We have, over the last year, reached out to the directors and officers of the Company expressing our concern over the management. We are major shareholders and they have consistently failed to address our concerns. We asked for a change of the board of directors and, again, they declined. We requisitioned a meeting of shareholders to change the board of directors on March 21, 2022 (which the Company failed to disclose), and the Company has now set an annual general meeting for June 1, 2022. We have confirmed to the Company that any issuance of shares after the date of our requisition (March 21, 2022) will not be eligible to vote at the shareholders meeting. We are writing to elicit your support for our nominee directors and for our vision for the Company. We commit to rigorous corporate governance, consistent disclosure, effective shareholder engagement and working to increasing shareholder value. We will listen to your concerns and improve investor relations.

The Company needs a new start and here is what we are proposing:

  1. A new board of directors consisting of five directors, two professional geologist (Sebastien Ah Fat and Rafael Vaudrin), all experienced directors of public companies and one business managing director (Owen Garfield), one financial managing director (Sven Gollan) and one governance managing director (Daniel Rodriguez). One of the nominees (Rafael Vaudrin) is a former director of the Company and will provide knowledge continuity;
  1. Our new nominee board has the experience, strategic vision and the resources to finance the Company and move it to the next level;
  1. We commit to engaging with shareholders and having full disclosure of all matters;
  1. March 31 is the Company's financial year end and now is the time to make this change and grow Company value; and
  1. We have attached a brief description of our nominee directors and their backgrounds evidencing their expertise.

We also want to address why, in our view current management, should not remain in place.

There has been incredibly poor communication and even non-existent communication with shareholders over the last year. There were no News Releases issued between May 10, 2021 and February 18, 2022. There was no Winter Drill Program as discussed and Michael Schuss (Director/CEO) provided no operational update in the second half of 2021, despite our requests. The March 31, 2022 News Release was, in our opinion, poorly drafted and did not evidence a sound exploration program. It appeared to try to blame others for their failures.

There are a series of gaps in disclosure, an example of which is the January 12, 2021 appointment of Darin Wagner as a technical advisor. We are advised Mr. Wagner subsequently left this position but there was no disclosure of this. In another example, the latest unaudited financial statements do not set out the changes to the board of directors and there is no disclosure of an advisory board.

Michael Schuss, in our opinion, appears to spend an excessive amount of his time on Twitter rather than running the business of the Company.

In our view, this lack of proper governance and disclosure has depressed the share price and placed the Detour West Property, the Company's main asset, at risk. In addition, there has been an increase in the salary of the CEO (Michael Schuss) without any regard to the lack of performance. The Company will need to raise capital for future exploration and the confidence of the existing shareholder base as well as that of potential investors has been lost.

Both Mr. Michael Schuss and Mr. Geoff Balderson provided us with their agreement, in writing, to resign and/or not stand for re-election and then refused to follow through with this. Mr. Bruland and Mr. Forward were just appointed February 18, 2022 and appear to have no vested interest in the Company. The Vendors and Royalty holders of the Detour West Property, have also expressed their dissatisfaction with the current management.

We ask that you support our nominees to ensure the success of the Company. Again, the date of the annual general meeting of shareholders has been set for June 1, 2022. We ask that you complete your proxy:

  1. to set the number of directors at five (5); and
  1. to vote for our nominees:

(a) Sven Gollan;
(b) Sebastien Ah Fat;
(c) Daniel Rodriguez;
(d) Owen Garfield; and
(e) Rafael Vaudrin.

Please deliver your proxy as set out in the proxy and email a copy to ggau@fruchtexpress.at. We want to ensure every vote is counted so will ensure your proxy is valid.

We can be reached as follows if you have any questions:

Gambier Gold Corp. (TSXV:GGAU) (the "Company") is pleased to announce it has recently completed a review of historical airborne geophysical surveys on its Detour West property ("Detour West" or, the "Project") in northern Ontario. Gambier's Detour West property is located immediately adjacent to the Detour Lake gold mine property of Kirkland Lake Gold, Canada's second-largest active gold mine.

As a result, the Company has expanded its land holdings at Detour West by 4,917 hectares to a total of 23,849 hectares

Historical Airborne Geophysics Interpretation and new Anomalies
The re-processing and re-interpretation of recently acquired historical airborne geophysical datasets was completed by Campbell and Walker Geophysics Ltd. Several moderate to strong conductors with direct spatial relation to inferred geological structures have been identified as high priority targets within the property boundary. . The Detour Lake gold mine, located approximately 20km along strike to the east, was discovered testing a similar conductive response located proximal to the SLDZ as were the Martiniere and Fenelon gold deposits located further east along the same structure.
