Happy Creek Minerals Ltd. Announces a Private Placement Financing

January 18, 2023, Vancouver, British Columbia – Happy Creek Minerals Ltd. (TSX-V: HPY) (“Happy Creek” or the “Company”) announces the intention to raise up to C$400,000 by way of a non-brokered private placement of up to 8,000,000 units at a price of C$0.05 per unit (the “Private Placement”). Each unit is comprised of one common share and one-half of a share purchase warrant. Each full warrant is exercisable into one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.10 per share for a period of two years from the date of issuance.

The proceeds of the Private Placement will primarily be used to fund the Company’s ongoing exploration programs and for general working capital.

All common shares issued under the Private Placement will be subject to a four-month plus one day hold period in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws. Closing of the Private Placement is subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including those of the TSX Venture Exchange, and certain other customary closing conditions, including, but not limited to, execution of the subscription agreements between the Company and the subscribers. The Private Placement is expected to close early February. The Private Placement is not subject to any minimum aggregate subscription.

In addition to other prospectus exemptions commonly relied on in private placements, the Private Placement will be available to existing shareholders of the Company who, as of the close of business on January 18, 2023, held common shares of the Company (and who continue to hold such common shares as of the closing date), pursuant to the prospectus exemption set out in BC Instrument 45-534 - Exemption from prospectus requirement for certain trades to existing security holders and in similar instruments in other jurisdictions in Canada (the “Existing Shareholder Exemption”). The Existing Shareholder Exemption limits a shareholder to a maximum investment of CAD$15,000 in a 12-month period unless the shareholder has obtained advice regarding the suitability of the investment and, if the shareholder is resident in a jurisdiction of Canada, that advice has been obtained from a person that is registered as an investment dealer in the jurisdiction. If the Company receives subscriptions from investors relying on the Existing Shareholder Exemption exceeding the maximum Private Placement, the Company may adjust the subscriptions received on a pro-rata basis.

The Company will also make the Private Placement available to certain subscribers pursuant to BC Instrument 45-536 - Exemption from prospectus requirement for certain distributions through an investment dealer (the “Investment Dealer Exemption”). In accordance with the requirements of the Investment Dealer Exemption, the Company confirms that there is no material fact or material change about the Company that has not been generally disclosed.

In connection with the Private Placement, the Company will pay a cash finder’s fee to certain finders equal to 6% of the gross proceeds raised and issue one-half of a broker warrant to certain finders in a quantity equal to 6% of the aggregate number of common shares sold. Each full broker warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.10 for a period of two years following the date of issuance.
