Margaret Lake Diamonds Inc.

Vancouver, BC - TheNewswire - February 16, 2023 - Margaret Lake Diamonds Inc. ("MLD" or the "Company") (TSXV:DIA) (FKT:M85) (OTC:DDIAF) has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) for gross proceeds of $400,000.

The Company issued 20,000,000 units for $0.02 per unit. Each unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company and one transferable common share purchase warrant.

Each warrant will be exercisable to purchase one common share at a price of $0.05 per share within 36 months. Warrants are subject to an acceleration clause in the event the Company's common shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX-V") at a 10-day volume weighted average price equal to or greater than $0.075.  The Company may accelerate the expiry of the Warrants by giving notice to holders of Warrants and issuing a news release announcing the reduced Warrant term whereupon the Warrants will expire on the 30th calendar days after the date of such news release.

The Warrants contain certain provisions such that the Warrant Holder shall only be entitled to exercise the Warrants to the extent that the Warrant Holder will own (together with any person acting jointly or in concert with the Warrant Holder), directly or indirectly, less than 10% of the issued and outstanding Shares of the Company immediately following such exercise. 

All securities issued are subject to a statutory four-month hold period. No finders’ fees were payable and no Control Person (as such term is defined in the policies of the TSX-V) was created as a result of the closing of the Offering. The closing of the Offering is subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals including the TSX-V.

The proceeds from the Offering will be used to advance the Company’s exploration projects, filing fees/regulatory fees, legal, audit, administrative, accounting expenses related to its rescinded MCTO, Canada Revenue Agency payment, and for general corporate purposes.
