Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - January 25, 2024) - Intrepid Metals Corp. (TSXV: INTR) (OTCQB: IMTCF) ("Intrepid" or the "Company") announces that it has closed the second and final tranche of its previously announced non-brokered private placement offering ("Offering") for a total of $6.6 million in gross proceeds from both tranches. On January 5, 2024, the Company closed a first tranche of the Offering for $3.23 million in proceeds (the "First Tranche"). On January 24, 2024, the Company closed the second tranche for an additional $3.37 million in gross proceeds.

"In response to the overwhelming interest in Intrepid, we increased the offering which not only validates the exceptional quality of our project portfolio but also reflects a high level of confidence in our team," said Mark Morabito, Chair of Intrepid.

"We were very pleased to receive such a strong show of support for this offering, where demand exceeded what we raised," stated Ken Brophy, CEO of Intrepid. "With the successful completion of our financing, we are now shifting our focus towards creating shareholder value from the upcoming drill programs in Arizona. Being able to provide shareholders with constant updates from our drill programs will separate us from so many other junior explorers on the market. We're in one of the most prolific mining jurisdictions, with the right infrastructure in place. With our initial drill programs fully funded, we're looking forward to updating our investors with our progress over the coming months."

The second tranche of the Offering consisted of 9,911,765 units (the "Units"), with each Unit consisting of one post-Consolidation common share and one common share purchase warrant (each a "Warrant") at a price of $0.34 (post-Consolidation) per Unit. Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one additional common share at a price of $0.45 (post-Consolidation) until two years from the closing date of the second tranche of the Offering.

The Warrants are subject to an acceleration right that allows the Company to give notice of an earlier expiry date if the Company's closing share price on the TSX Venture Exchange is equal to or greater than $0.68 for a period of ten (10) consecutive trading days (the "Acceleration Right").

In connection with the Offering, the Company paid finder's fees of $109,330.54 in cash and 321,560 in finder's warrants. Each finder's warrant is non-transferable but otherwise has the same terms as the Warrants (including the Acceleration Right). All securities issued in the second tranche of the Offering are subject to a statutory hold period that expires on May 25, 2024.

The net proceeds of the second tranche of the Offering will be used for exploration and development expenditures on the Company's mineral properties, investor relations activities and general working capital.

To demonstrate continued support of the Company, certain directors, officers and insiders of the Company and their affiliates participated in the Offering and acquired 343,038 Units for proceeds of $116,632.92. Such participation is considered a related party transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The related party transaction is exempt from minority approval, information circular and formal valuation requirements pursuant to the exemptions contained in Sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as neither the fair market value of the gross securities to be issued under the Offering nor the consideration to be paid by the insiders will exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization. The Company did not file a material change report related to this financing more than 21 days before the expected closing of the Offering as required by MI 61-101 since the details of the participation by the related parties of the Company were not settled until shortly prior to the closing of the Offering and the Company wished to close on an expedited basis for sound business reasons. The Units that will be acquired by the related parties have been acquired pursuant to an exemption from the prospectus requirement in sections 2.3 or 2.24 of National Instrument 45-106.

This news release does not constitute an offer of securities for sale in the United States. The securities being offered have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and such securities may not be offered or sold within the United States absent U.S. registration or an applicable exemption from U.S. registration requirements.
