WESCAN GOLDFIELDS INC. ANNOUNCES PROPOSED PRIVATE PLACEMENT AND EXCHANGE LISTING UPDATE


/NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. WIRE SERVICES/

SASKATOON, SK, Sept. 1, 2023 /CNW/ - Wescan Goldfields Inc. (TSXV: WGF) ("Wescan" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it intends to complete a private placement of up to 3,333,333 flow-through common shares in the capital of the Company (the "Flow-Through Shares") at a price of $0.06 per Flow-Through Share, and up to 2,000,000 units of the Company (the "Units") at a price of $0.05 per Unit, for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $300,000 (collectively, the "Offering"). Each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company (each, a "Common Share") and one Common Share purchase warrant of the Company (each, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.06 for a period of twelve months from the date of issuance thereof. The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Offering to incur Canadian exploration expenses on the Company's gold properties (collectively, the "Qualifying Expenditures") and for general working capital purposes. Wescan will renounce the Qualifying Expenditures to subscribers of the Flow-Through Shares.

Insiders may participate at greater than 25% of the Offering.

The Offering will be conducted pursuant to available exemptions from the registration and prospectus requirements of applicable securities legislation, including sales to accredited investors and to close personal friends and business associates of directors and officers of the Company. The Company intends to solicit subscriptions from subscribers who are not currently shareholders of the Company pursuant these exemptions.

The Company may also issue (a) Common Shares from treasury (the "Finder Shares") and (b) Warrants (the "Finder Warrants"), in an amount equal to 6% of the aggregate number of Flow-Through Shares and Units issued pursuant to the Offering that are attributable to finders. Each Finder Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.06 for a period of twelve months from the date of issuance thereof.

Closing of the Offering is subject to the receipt of the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"). The Offering is expected to close on or about September 20, 2023, provided that the Offering may close in one or more tranches, but in any event no later than September 27, 2023. All securities issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day in accordance with applicable securities legislation and Exchange regulations.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities in the United States or in any jurisdiction in which the offer, sale or solicitation would be unlawful. The offer and sale of the securities offered in the Offering has not been and will not be registered under the US Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or any state securities laws, and such securities may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or applicable exemption from such registration requirements.

Exchange Listing Update

The Company received a notice (the "Notice") from the Exchange, in which the Exchange notified the Company of deficiencies in meeting certain Tier 2 Continued Listing Requirements ("CLR") outlined in Exchange Policy 2.5 (the "Policy") and a possible transfer to the NEX. As determined by the Exchange, the Company does not currently meet the "Activity" and "Assets" requirements set out in the Policy.

The Company was unable to meet CLR due to the impact of COVID, delays in obtaining regulatory approvals, and the inability to access its properties. However, the Company has addressed these issues and does not anticipate any further obstacles to restarting operations.

Following a discussion with the Exchange, the Company does not expect that the Notice will have any immediate impact on the listing of the Company's securities. The Company has prepared a work program that has been reviewed to the satisfaction of the Exchange and, subject to the successful completion of the Offering, expects to meet CLR going forward and maintain its listing on the Exchange.
