Sparton Announces Closing of First Tranche of Private Placement Offering of C$500,000 For its Critical Metals Exploration Programs

Press Release

TORONTO, Dec. 19, 2023 — Sparton Resources Inc. (TSXV-SRI) (“Sparton” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the closing on December 18, 2023, of the first tranche of the non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) announced on December 8, 2023 for gross proceeds of C$500,000.

Sparton has issued 10,000,000 Quebec Flow-Through Share (“QFTS”) Units of the Company (each, a “QFTS Unit”) at a price of C$0.05 per QFTS Unit for proceeds of C$500,000. Each QFTS Unit will consist of one common share of the Company and a 1/2 (one half) non-flow through Share Purchase Warrant (“SPW”) (10,000,000 1/2 (one half) or 5,000,000 full SPWs). Each full SPW will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company (each, a “Warrant Share”) at a price of C$0.08 for a period of 24 months following the issue date, or December 15, 2025.

Each QFTS will consist of one common share of the Company to be issued as a Critical Metals “flow-through share” within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada).

The Company intends to use the proceeds of the offering for the exploration of the Company’s Critical Metals projects in Ontario and Quebec. These include the Pense -Montreuil polymetallic metals project east of Englehart Ontario and straddling the Ontario- Quebec border where historical work has identified zinc-copper-nickel mineralization with minor cobalt values, and little work has been done for over 20 years. The Oakes gold and related copper mineralization project near Matachewan, Ontario, has over 5 untested drill targets in close proximity to the former producing Ryan Lake copper and molybdenum mine, and the current Young Davidson gold producer.

Work will consist of airborne electromagnetic surveys, follow up ground truthing of anomalies and diamond core drilling. The Oakes project has a number of untested Induced Polarization zones outlined by the Company that have never been tested and some of these are related to rock units similar to those hosting the nearby copper and molybdenum mineralization.

The gross proceeds from the issuance of the QFTS will be used to incur resource exploration expenses which will constitute “Canadian exploration expenses” as defined in subsection 66.1(6) of the Income Tax Act and “flow through mining expenditures” as defined in subsection 127(9) of the Income Tax Act (the “Qualifying Expenditures”), which will be renounced with an effective date no later than December 31, 2023 to the purchasers of the QFTS Units in an aggregate amount not less than the gross proceeds raised from the issue of the QFT Shares. If the Qualifying Expenditures are reduced by the Canada Revenue Agency, the Company will indemnify each subscriber of QFTS Units for any additional taxes payable by such subscriber as a result of the Company’s failure to renounce the Qualifying Expenditures.

The closing of the Offering has received all necessary regulatory approvals including the TSX Venture Exchange.

Finders Fees in the sum of $50,000 cash have been paid to third party finders and a total of 1,000,000 Finders Warrants issued to them. Each of the Finders Warrants will entitle the holder to purchase one common share of the Company for C$0.08 until December 15, 2025.

The QFTS, Warrant Shares and any common shares of the Company that are issuable from exercising any finder’s warrants will be subject to a hold period ending on the date that is four months plus one day following the issue date of December 15, 2023, in accordance with applicable securities laws.
o, or for the account or benefit of, United States persons absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable U.S. state securities laws. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities in the United States, nor in any other jurisdiction.
