Vancouver, Canada – Hannan Metals Limited (“Hannan” or the “Company”) (TSXV: HAN) (OTCPK: HANNF) is pleased to announce that pursuant to a price reservation filed with the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) on June 29, 2020, and subsequent submission to the Exchange, the Company received conditional acceptance from the Exchange to proceed with a non-brokered private placement of up to 4,000,000 units (the “Units”) with a strategic investor group (the “Strategic Investor”), at a price of C$0.25 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of C$1,000,000 (the “Private Placement”). Each Unit comprises one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share at an exercise price of C$0.35 per common share for a period of two years expiring on July 13, 2022.
Mr Hudson, Chairman and CEO, states, “We welcome the new Strategic Investor to Hannan’s register. The investor has already been a great support for the Company, and we look forward to working together as we go forward to further enhance shareholder value as we build on our copper-silver discovery at San Martin in Peru. This deal was struck at the end of June and was based on a trading price of $0.295 at the time. Given the subsequent market movement and to minimize dilution, the Board decided to restrict this placement to the strategic investor alone. We look forward to advancing our project, as our understanding has grown significantly with our 2020 field results, combined with recent remote sensed mapping which has provided an advanced geological perspective and overview.”
All securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement are subject to a four-month hold period under applicable securities laws in Canada expiring on November 14, 2020. The Private Placement is subject to the final acceptance of the Exchange. No finder’s fees or commissions were paid in connection with the Private Placement.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Private Placement for exploration on the Company’s Peruvian exploration properties and for working capital and general corporate purposes.

The securities have not been, and will not be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act"), or the securities laws of any state of the United States, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons (as defined in Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act) absent registration under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration requirements.
