LAURION Mineral Exploration Inc.

The gross proceeds 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, 2020 (provided the subscriber deals at arm’s length with the Corporation at all relevant times) to the initial purchasers of FT Shares in an aggregate amount not less than the gross proceeds raised from the issue of the FT Shares.

In connection with the Private Placement, the Corporation may pay finders’ fees in the form of cash commissions.

The closing of the Private Placement remains subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV“). Subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, the Corporation intends to close the Private Placement on or about August 12, 2020. All securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to, among other things, a hold period of four months and one day in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws.
