Decklar Resources Inc. (DKL-TSX Venture) ( the "Company" or "Decklar") is pleased to announce that it has completed a first closing of the Company's previously announced unit offering for total gross proceeds of approximately CAD $10,000,000.

The Company is also pleased to announce that preparations and initial operations at the Oza-1 wellsite at the Oza Oil Field in Nigeria through the Company's wholly-owned Nigeria-based subsidiary, Decklar Petroleum Limited, are steadily advancing. An initial wireline survey on the existing Oza-1 wellbore in preparation for the arrival of the drilling rig has been completed. The rig camp and all associated infrastructure has been mobilized, set up and is fully operational, and the remaining major components of the drilling rig will be mobilized this week.
Decklar also continues to advance discussions on multiple opportunities to potentially secure additional field interests.
First Closing of Unit Offering
As previously announced, the Company proposed to complete a non-brokered financing to raise gross proceeds of up to CAD $15,000,000 by way of a unit offering (the "Offering") at a price of $1.00 per unit (a "Unit"), with each Unit consisting of one common share of Decklar (a "Common Share") and one-half common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price of $1.50 per Common Share for a period of 12 months from the closing date of the Offering. The first closing of the Offering has been completed for total gross proceeds of CAD $10,075,000 in respect of subscriptions for 10,075,000 Units, with net proceeds to the company totaling CAD $9,404,700. An aggregate of 280,000 Warrants were issued to certain arm's length finders as a finders' fee in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. Decklar engaged Echelon Wealth Partners Inc. as strategic financial advisor in connection with the Offering.
The Company has received an extension from the TSX Venture Exchange to complete the remaining approximately $4,925,000 under the Offering prior to June 28, 2021.
