Lithiumbank Announces $6 Million "Bought Deal" Private Placement


April 17, 2023 – Calgary, Alberta – LithiumBank Resources Corp. (TSX-V: LBNK) (the “Company” or “LithiumBank”) is pleased to announce it has entered into an agreement with Echelon Capital Markets ("Echelon") and, if applicable, on behalf of a syndicate of underwriters (collectively the "Underwriters") in respect of a bought deal private placement of 3,158,000 units of the Company issued on a charity flow-through basis (the "FT Units") at a price of $1.90 per FT Unit (the "FT Issue Price") for gross proceeds of $6,000,200 ("Offering").  Each FT Unit will consist of one common share of the Company to be issued as a "flow-through share" within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (each, a “FT Share") and three quarters of one common share purchase warrant of the Company (each whole common share purchase warrant, a "FT Warrant") each to be issued as a "flow-through share" within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada). Each FT Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one non flow-through Common Share (a "Warrant Share") at an exercise price of $2.00 for a period of 36 months from the date of issuance thereof, subject to adjustment in certain events.

In addition, the Company has granted the Underwriters an option to arrange for the sale of up to an additional 15% of the FT Units at the Issue Price. The Underwriters’ Option may be exercised in whole or in part at any time up to 48 hours prior to the Closing Date (the “Underwriters’ Option”).

The Company will have the right to include a list of subscribers to purchasers, for gross proceeds of at least $1,000,000 under the Offering (the "President's List").

The FT Units will be offered for sale to purchasers in all the provinces and territories of Canada (other than Québec) in reliance on the listed issuer financing exemption available in Part 5A National Instrument 45-106 - Prospectus Exemptions ("NI 45-106") and will not be subject to any statutory hold periods, up to the maximum allowable amount under the exemption, and the balance will be offered by means of a private placement subject to a 4 month hold.

As compensation, the Underwriters will be entitled to a cash fee in an amount equal to 6.0% of the gross proceeds from the Offering . In addition, the Underwriters will receive non-transferable warrants (the "Broker Warrants") exercisable at any time prior to the date that is 36 months from the Closing Date to acquire that number of units (each comprised of one common share and three-quarters of one Warrant) which is equal to 6.0% of the number of FT Units sold under the Offering at an exercise price equal to $1.28. The Underwriters will receive a reduced cash commission of 3.0% and that number of Broker Warrants equal to 3.0% of the number of FT Units sold to purchasers under the President's List.

An amount equal to the gross proceeds from the issuance of the FT Shares partially comprising the FT Units will be used to incur, on the Company's Canadian mineral exploration properties, Canadian exploration expenses that will qualify as "flow-through mining expenditures", as defined in subsection 127(9) of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (collectively, the "Qualifying Expenditures"). The Qualifying Expenditures will be incurred on or before December 31, 2024 and will be renounced by the Corporation to the subscribers with an effective date no later than December 31, 2023 to the initial purchasers of the FT Units in an aggregate amount not less than the gross proceeds raised from the issue of the FT Shares partially comprising the FT Units. In the event that the Corporation is unable to renounce the issue price of the FT Shares partially comprising the FT Units on or prior to December 31, 2023 for each FT Unit purchased and/or if the Qualifying Expenditures are reduced by the Canada Revenue Agency, the Corporation will as sole recourse for such failure to renounce, indemnify each FT Unit subscriber for the additional taxes payable by such subscriber to the extent permitted by the Income Tax Act (Canada) as a result of the Corporation's failure to renounce the Qualifying Expenditures as agreed.  Currently, the Company intends to use the proceeds raised from the Offering for exploration and development of its projects in Alberta.

The Offering is scheduled to close on or about May 10, 2023 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, receipt of all necessary approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
