Vancouver, British Columbia – April 19, 2024 Leocor Gold Inc. (the “Company” or “Leocor”) (CSE: LECR, OTCQB: LECRF) is pleased to announce that it has closed its non- brokered private placement and has issued 38,300,000 units (each, a “Unit”) at a price of $0.05 per Unit for gross proceeds of $1,915,000. Each Unit consists of one common share of the company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”), entitling the holder thereof to purchase one additional share at a price of $0.10 until April 19, 2027.

The Company intends to use the gross proceeds to advance the exploration and development of its gold and copper projects in Newfoundland, and for general working capital purposes.

In connection with closing of the offering, the Company paid finders’ fees totalling $25,200 and issued 504,000 Warrants to certain arm’s-length brokerage firms. All securities issued in connection with the private placement are subject to a statutory hold period until August 20, 2024, under applicable Canadian securities laws, in addition to such other restrictions as may apply under applicable securities laws of jurisdictions outside of Canada.

Brian Shin, the Chief Financial Officer of the Company, subscribed for 200,000 Units in the offering. Participation in the offering by an insider of the Company constitutes a related- party transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions) (“MI 61-101”). The issuance of securities to Mr. Shin is exempt from the valuation requirement of MI 61-101 by virtue of the exemption contained in Section 5.5(b) as the shares are not listed on a specified market and from the minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 by virtue of the exemption contained in Section 5.7(a) of MI 61-101, in that the fair market value of the consideration paid for the securities issued to Mr. Shin does not exceed twenty-five percent of the Company’s market capitalization.

“We’re pleased with support of existing and new shareholders who participated in this raise,” said Alex Klenman, CEO. “The additional funds realized in this placement will assist greatly in moving our Baie Verte project forward. With demonstrated robust gold and copper mineralization, the projects that make up this exploration package provide exceptional opportunities. Now is the perfect time to complete the next stage of development of these assets,” continued Mr. Klenman.
