 News Release – Vancouver, British Columbia – December 27, 2023: GSP Resource Corp. (TSX-V: GSPR) (the “Company” or “GSP”) announces it has closed a non-brokered private placement financing (the “Private Placement”) of 1,741,682 units (each, a “Unit”) at a price of $0.12 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $209,001.84.  Each Unit consists of one ‘flow-through’ (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the “ITA”)) common share (each, a “FT Share”) and one-half of one transferable common share purchase warrant (“Warrants”).  Each whole Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.20 per share for a period of two (2) years following the date of issuance.

All securities issued under the Private Placement are subject to a four month hold period in accordance with applicable securities laws. The Company paid aggregate cash finder’s fees of $8,760.11 and issued 73,001 non-transferable finder warrants to certain brokers and finders on a portion of the Private Placement.  The finder warrants are each exercisable to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.12 per share for a period of two years from the closing date of the Private Placement.

One insider of the Company subscribed for a total of 150,000 Units for total gross proceeds of $18,000 under the Private Placement. Participation by the insider constitutes a related party transaction as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”).  The Company is relying on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as the fair market value of the participation in the Private Placement by insiders does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101.

The Company intends to use the proceeds from the sale of the FT Shares towards exploration work on the Alwin Mine Copper Project and intends that such expenses incurred will be eligible for the Critical Mineral Exploration Tax Credit (the “CMETC”).  Proceeds from the sale of FT Shares will be used to incur “Canadian exploration expenses” as defined in subsection 66.1(6) of the ITA and “flow through mining expenditures” as defined in subsection 127(9) of the ITA and will be targeted for critical minerals for eligibility under the CMETC.  Such proceeds will be renounced to the subscribers with an effective date not later than December 31, 2023, in the aggregate amount of not less than the total amount of gross proceeds raised from the issue of FT Shares.
