Not for distribution to U.S. news wire services or dissemination in the United States.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 22, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Koryx Copper Inc. (“Koryx” or the "Company") (TSX-V: KRY) is pleased to announce that it has received commitments for CAD$2,000,000 proceeds pursuant to a non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) for the sale of up to 16,666,666 common shares of the Company (the “Shares”) at a price of $0.12 per Share.

The Offering is subject to TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) approval, and all Shares issued under the Offering will be subject to a four month hold from the date of issuance. The Company will not pay any finder’s fees and no new control person will be created as a result of the Offering. The total amount of the Offering has been committed to and the Company expects that the Offering will be fully subscribed.

The net proceeds from the Offering will be used to advance the Haib copper project in Namibia the Luanshya West project in Zambia, and for general working capital purposes.

The Company also announces that its board of directors has approved the consolidation of all of the issued and outstanding Shares of the Company on the basis of one (1) new common share (a “Post-Consolidation Share”) for every five (5) existing Shares, subject to TSXV approval (the “Consolidation”).

It is anticipated that the Consolidation will reduce the number of presently issued and outstanding Shares of the Company from 227,445,142 Shares to approximately 45,489,029 Post-Consolidation Shares, subject to adjustment for rounding. Assuming the Offering is fully subscribed there would be a total of 244,111,808 Shares issued and outstanding immediately before the Consolidation and approximately 48,822,362 Post-Consolidation Shares upon completion of the Consolidation. The Company believes that the Consolidation will enhance its capital in a more market-friendly structure which will put it in a better position to attract additional capital and assist in executing its business plans. The Consolidation is subject to the approval of the TSXV.

The Company does not intend to change its name or its current trading symbol in connection with the Consolidation. The effective date of the Consolidation will be announced in a subsequent news release.

No fractional Post-Consolidation Shares will be issued as a result of the Consolidation. Shareholders who would otherwise be entitled to receive a fraction of a Post-Consolidation Share will be rounded up to the nearest whole number of Post-Consolidation Shares and no cash consideration will be paid in respect of fractional shares. The exercise price and number of common shares of the Company, issuable upon exercise of any outstanding convertible securities will be proportionally adjusted upon the implementation of the Consolidation.

The Company will provide a further update once it has received all applicable approvals and has set an effective date for the Consolidation.

As a consequence of the Consolidation, subscribers under the Offering will receive Post-Consolidation Shares at an effective price of $0.60 per Post-Consolidation Share.
