Net proceeds will be used for costs associated with the continued exploration/drill program and reports for a planned PEA for the Berkwood Graphite project.

The securities to be issued will be legend with the required four months plus one day hold period from issuance.

The goal is to move towards creating a PEA which is in our path forward as laid out in the Company's News Release of April 19 th , 2021.

The Company confirms there is no material fact or material change related to the Company which has not been generally disclosed.

The purpose of a PEA is to evaluate a mineral project's potential economic viability.

A preliminary economic assessment, (PEA), is defined as a study that includes a preliminary economic analysis of the potential viability of a project's mineral resources. Preliminary economic assessments are completed before prefeasibility and feasibility studies and are an important step towards feasibility which helps determine whether a company should consider developing a mineral resource project.

Before a mineral resource project becomes a mine, several technical studies must be completed on a deposit to ensure its economic viability. As mentioned, putting a PEA together is one of the first steps in the evaluation process, with prefeasibility and feasibility studies following.

Generally, PEAs will include base case information on the estimated capital costs associated with bringing a project into production, an estimate of how the mine will operate once it is built, how much metal/minerals it will produce and at what operating cost. The PEA helps the Company understand risks and uncertainties associated with a project. The study can be part of exploration with both open-pit mining and underground mining and should include a mine plan.

More specifically, a PEA tends to have information on pre-production capital costs, life-of-mine sustaining capital, mine life and an estimate of projected cash flow, as well as details on processing and production methods and rates.

PEAs also include information on mineral project economics at various metal/mineral prices.  This will include an estimate NPV (Net Present Value) of the mine and an estimated IRR (Internal Rate of Return).

PEA allows for companies to help predict an estimated potential profit margins, which help determine their NPV.

Tom Yingling, President and CEO state s, "We are very pleased to move closer to the planned PEA.   Neighbouring Graphite companies in Quebec have significantly higher market cap then Green Battery and management feels it is due to a lack of a positive PEA.  By moving forward with the financing, it should allow the Company to proceed with a much larger drill program this Summer which helps move closer to the planned PEA.  The upcoming drill program will consist of infill and step out drilling to potentially expand the already proven resource on Zone 1, which to date has only been drilled approximately 20 percent. In addition, we plan on drilling our separately located Zone 6.  The Company has already confirmed that Zone 6 contains Graphite as it has been channel sampled numerous times at surface and it has produced high grade, large flake graphite.  The Zone 6 Geophysical anomaly, that has been proven ac curate by channel sampling, also implies a large Graphitic body at surface.  This reconfirms our mission to repeat what Mason has done, just on our side of the claim boundary line that we share with Mason."

Qualified Person: Mr. Dave Kelsch, P.Geo. is a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 guidelines, and he has reviewed and approved the technical content of this news release.

About the Company: Green Battery Minerals is managed by a team with over 150 years collectively with a proven track record of not just finding numerous mines but building and operating them too. The Green Battery Mineral management team's most recent success is the discovery of the Berkwood Graphite resource in Northern Quebec. Green Battery Mineral owns this asset 100 percent and the Company's shareholders should benefit from this asset as the demand for Graphite for electric vehicles increases significantly.

Strength in the US dollar is keeping the gold price in check right now, but that won't last forever.

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Will Rhind, CEO of GraniteShares, said the yellow metal is in a good position given market conditions and looks set to strengthen moving forward.

"(Gold has) really managed to shrug off a lot of the negatives around rising rates and a strong dollar, and I think people have got to ask themselves, 'How much more can the dollar strengthen from here? ... Realistically is there more upside for the dollar here, or for gold?' I think clearly I'm in the camp of favoring gold on that one," he said.

Speaking at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention, Kotecha said that looking back over the last 20 years, gold has outperformed major indexes like the S&P 500 (INDEXDJX:.DJI).

"A lot of people want to see gold at US$5,000 and US$10,000 (per ounce), kind of like how bitcoin rose quite a bit. But gold is a different beast in itself," he said. "So in my opinion gold is doing well."
