Graycliff Exploration Limited (the " Company " or " Graycliff ") (CSE:GRAY)(OTCQB:GRYCF)(FSE:GE0) is pleased to announce the completion of the first tranche of a non-brokered private placement offering of 3,589,963 flow-through units (" FT Unit ") at a price of $0.30 per FT Unit of the Company (the " Financing ") for gross proceeds of $1,076,989.95

Each FT Unit consists of one common share to be issued as a "flow-through share" and one-half (½) purchase warrant (a "Warrant ") with each whole Warrant entitling the holder to purchase one common share at a price of $0.45 for a period of two (2) years from the closing date.

Graycliff intends to use the net proceeds from the Financing to expand its current exploration program at the Company's Shakespeare Project in Ontario, Canada, and to initiate surface sampling and airborne geophysics at the adjacent Baldwin Project.

"With the completion of this flow-through financing, Graycliff is planning to expand its exploration program at Shakespeare. In the new year we will begin to drill-test priority targets to the east and to the west of the Miller Shaft along our mineralized corridor. Phase Three drilling is still progressing, and we anticipate initial assay results shortly," commented James Macintosh, President and CEO.

In connection with the Financing, the Company expects to pay (i) a cash commission equal to 7% of the aggregate proceeds sourced by the finder and (ii) finder's warrants (the " Finder's Warrants ") in an amount equal to 7% of the aggregate number of FT Units sourced by the finder. Each Finder's Warrant is exercisable for one common share at a price of $0.30 and will expire two (2) years from the closing date.

The participation by one of the directors of the Company in the Financing constitutes a "related party transaction" pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (" MI 61-101 "). The Company intends to rely on the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in section 5.5(b) and Section 5.7(1)(b) of MI 61-101, respectively, on the basis that no securities of the Company are listed or quoted on any of the markets specified in Section 5.5(b) of MI 61-101 and the fair market value of the securities issued to related parties pursuant to the Financing, does not exceed $2,500,000, along with the other applicable circumstances contained in section 5.7(1)(b) of MI 61-101.

All securities issued pursuant to this Financing will be legended with a hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance.

Graycliff Exploration


Sudbury, Ontario is like no other mining district in the world. The Canadian jurisdiction boasts a rich history rooted in mining and widespread mineralization that leverages advantageous positioning on the iconic Canadian Shield, land that is located right on the third-largest known impact crater on earth.

Known famously for its high-yield copper and nickel production, the mining-friendly district also hosts tremendous precious metal exploration and production across its many historic and past-producing mines. With such diverse mineralization and unique rock formations dating back millions of years, Sudbury presents investors and exploration companies with a perfect storm of discovery potential and rich historical production records.

Graycliff Exploration (CSE:GRAY,FSE:GEO,OTC:GRYCF) is a Canadian-based junior exploration company exploring highly prospective gold projects in this historic gold-producing district of Ontario, Canada. The Company’s project portfolio consists of its flagship Shakespeare gold project and the newer Baldwin project.

The flagship Shakespeare project is located around the historic Shakespeare gold mine 88 kms west of Sudbury,Ontario. The 1, 025 hectare property leverages the region’s deep mining roots and high-grade mineralization in the shadow of a historic headframe. Historic and current exploration demonstrates exciting discovery opportunities and promising gold grades across multiple quartz vein and quartz vein stockwork targets.

The Baldwin project is just East of the Shakespeare property and both projects are transected by the prolific Murray Fault. Both projects are also situated in a well-known geological zone of the Canadian Shield, where the Archean, Southern and Superior geological provinces intersect. This boasts tremendous exploration opportunities for both projects

The next steps for Graycliff include continuing extensive drilling and further exploration programs for high-grade gold at Shakespeare and prospecting, sampling and geophysics at Baldwin. Historic work at Baldwin was for uranium only and historic reports suggest similar geology to Shakespeare. . The Company already initiated its Phase Three drilling program at its flagship property and remains excited uncover future gold discoveries.

Graycliff has a tight capital structure with 25 million shares outstanding with close to 40% being held by management, insiders and strategic shareholders. In April 2021, the Company announced the completion of a C$2.4 million non-brokered private placement. The net proceeds from the financing mean that Graycliff’s exploration programs at Shakespeare and Baldwin are fully funded through 2022. The Company hopes to find gold at Baldwin in 2022 and create a new Ontario gold camp

Graycliff Exploration’s management team and technical advisors bring together deep exploration experience and a pedigree across multiple major projects in Ontario. A notable technical advisor driving Graycliff’s mining operations is Bruce Durham, a significant figure credited with the discovery of several significant economic mineral deposits, including the David Bell mine, the Golden Giant mine, the Redstone Nickel mine and the Bell Creek Mine. Together, this leadership roster primes Graycliff for tremendous discovery and economic upside.

Graycliff’s Company Highlights

  • Graycliff Exploration is a Canadian junior exploration company engaged in acquiring, exploring, developing and extracting precious metals in prolific mining districts. Its property portfolio includes the Shakespeare and Baldwin gold projects located on the prolific Canadian Shield west of Sudbury, Ontario.
  • The flagship Shakespeare project is located around the historic Shakespeare gold mine. Current exploration includes the third phase of drilling to identify further high-grade, near-surface gold and identifying new targets along it’s SW-NE trending mineralized horizon of over six kilometers.
  • Historic reports suggest that the adjacent Baldwin project has similar geology to Shakespeare and initial field work is being carried out in 2021..
  • The Company has a tight share structure with close to 40% of its shares management, insiders and strategic shareholders.
  • Graycliff has an impressive management and technical advisory team with deep roots in exploration, project development and corporate finance.

Graycliff Exploration’s Key Projects

Shakespeare Project

The Shakespeare and Baldwin Projects have excellent infrastructure with close proximity to the Trans-Canada highway, utility networks and a strong, local workforce. Many of Graycliff’s workforce are shareholders and therefore very loyal to the Company.

Graycliff has now completed Phase One and Phase Two of its drilling program, which totalled of 2,800 metres and 5 of the first 7 holes returned anomalous gold values, including: 8.1 metres (“m”) of 3.2 grams of gold per tonne (“g/t Au”), 6.0 m of 4.6 g/t Au, 5.5 m of 8.6 g/t Au. The Company has recently released the first two holes of the 14 hole phase two drill program and both were spectacular with hole 8 being 16.0 m of 16.4 g/t Au and hole 9 being 16.0 m of 13.3 g/t Au. The rest of the results from phase two are expected over the next couple of months. . The Company is also working on a 3D model of the current mineralization, which is expected to be completed in early 2022.

Baldwin Project

The Baldwin project comprises three mining blocks totalling 1,500 hectares located east of the Company’s flagship Shakespeare project. The property has not been historically explored for gold, but historic reports from uranium exploration suggest it has similar geology to the Shakespeare Project.. The next steps for Baldwin include preliminary surface sampling and geophysics planned for late-2021.

Should Graycliff find gold at Baldwin, its proximity to Shakespeare could be the making s of a new Onatrio Gold Camp.
