TORONTO, ON – December 8, 2021 – Graycliff Exploration Limited(the “ Company ” or “ Graycliff “) (CSE:GRAY)(OTCQB:GRYCF)(FSE:GE0) is pleased to announce the completion of the first tranche of a non-brokered private placement offering of 3,589,963 flow-through units (“ FT Unit “) at a price of $0.30 per FT Unit of the Company (the “ Financing “) for gross proceeds of $1,076,989.95.
Each FT Unit consists of one common share to be issued as a “flow-through share” and one-half (½) purchase warrant (a “Warrant “) with each whole Warrant entitling the holder to purchase one common share at a price of $0.45 for a period of two (2) years from the closing date.

“With the completion of this flow-through financing, Graycliff is planning to expand its exploration program at Shakespeare. In the new year we will begin to drill-test priority targets to the east and to the west of the Miller Shaft along our mineralized corridor. Phase Three drilling is still progressing, and we anticipate initial assay results shortly,” commented James Macintosh, President and CEO.
In connection with the Financing, the Company expects to pay (i) a cash commission equal to 7% of the aggregate proceeds sourced by the finder and (ii) finder’s warrants (the “ Finder’s Warrants “) in an amount equal to 7% of the aggregate number of FT Units sourced by the finder. Each Finder’s Warrant is exercisable for one common share at a price of $0.30 and will expire two (2) years from the closing date.
