Sarama Resources – Corporate Update

The Board of Directors of Sarama Resources Ltd. ("Sarama" or the "Company") (ASX:SRR)(TSX-V:SWA) has granted 6,809,999 options to directors, officers, employees and consultants of the Company. The option grant is the result of the Company's annual compensation review historically undertaken in January but delayed due to the restrictions imposed by the Company's Trading Policy. This granting of options is made in accordance with the Company's stock option plan which was approved by shareholders on December 21, 2022, and allows for the issuance of a number of options up to 10% of its rolling issued and outstanding common shares during any 12 month period. The Australian Securities Exchange ("ASX") Listing Rule 7.2, exception 13(b) provides an exception to ASX Listing Rule 7.1 such that issues of Equity Securities under an employee incentive scheme are exempt for a period of three years from the date on which the Shareholders approve the issue of Equity Securities under the scheme as an exception to ASX Listing Rule 7.1. ASX Listing Rule 7.1 provides that a company must not, subject to specified exceptions, issue or agree to issue more Equity Securities during any 12-month period than that amount which represents 15% of the number of fully paid ordinary securities on issue at the commencement of that 12 month period. The grant of options under the Company's stock option plan falls within the scope of ASX Listing Rule 7.2, exception 13(b) and therefore does not count towards the 15% threshold under ASX Listing Rule 7.1 described above.

Options to be granted to Directors will require Shareholder approval under ASX Listing Rule 10.14 as it is an issue to a related party. Approval will be sought at the next AGM in June 2023. The Company is proposing to issue an aggregate of 3,016,666 options to directors (or their nominees) on the basis described below:

The options have an exercise price of A$0.16 each, 60% above the price of the last capital raise of A$0.10, and 33% above the 10-day VWAP of A$0.12 and the trading price of the last trading day of A$0.12 on the ASX prior to grant. The options will immediately vest and are exercisable for a period of 3 years from the date of the grant thereof.

On January 16, 2023, 3,599,999 options granted on January 16, 2020, and exercisable at C$0.21 had expired.

Total options outstanding is 13,190,000 subject to approval of the number of options that is to be granted to directors.
