29.05.2024 | 15:08 Uhr | Newsfile

Vancouver, May 29, 2024 - Blackrock Silver Corp. (TSXV: BRC) ("Blackrock" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed its previously announced "bought deal" public offering of 32,343,750 units of the Company (the "Units") at a price of $0.32 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of $10,350,000 (the "Offering"). The completed Offering includes the full exercise of the over-allotment option by the Underwriters (as defined herein) for the sale of 4,218,750 Units for proceeds of $1,350,000. Eric Sprott, through 2176423 Ontario Ltd, a corporation beneficially owned by him, participated in the Offering with a lead order of $4,000,000.

Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company (a "Common Share") and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant of the Company (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.48 per Common Share at any time on or before May 29, 2026.

Andrew Pollard, President & Chief Executive Officer of Blackrock, commented: "With a significant lead order from Eric Sprott, and the participation of a number of new as well as existing shareholders, proceeds from this Offering will see the drills return to Tonopah West this summer for our much anticipated resource conversion and expansion program. Roughly 20,000 metres (m) of drilling (8,000m of reverse circulation and 12,000m of core) is planned to convert inferred resources to M&I (measured & indicated) on our Merten and Bermuda veins that run along the southern edge of our DPB deposit. The program will crystalize further expansion potential across the 1km vein corridor in an effort to bridge the gap between the DPB and NW Step-out areas."

The net proceeds from the Offering will be used for exploration, resource expansion and conversion drilling, working capital and general corporate purposes.

The Offering was completed pursuant to an underwriting agreement dated May 23, 2024 entered into among the Company and a syndicate of underwriters led by Research Capital Corporation as the lead underwriter and sole bookrunner, on behalf of a syndicate of underwriters, including Canaccord Genuity Corp., Red Cloud Securities Inc. and Ventum Financial Corp. (collectively, the "Underwriters").

The Offering was completed pursuant to a prospectus supplement of the Company dated May 23, 2024 (the "Prospectus Supplement") to the Company's short form base shelf prospectus dated August 4, 2023 (the "Base Shelf Prospectus"), in each of the provinces of Canada (except Québec), and in the United States on a private placement basis pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act") and applicable state securities laws and other jurisdictions. The Offering remains subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX-V"). Copies of the Prospectus Supplement and the Base Shelf Prospectus are available under the Company's profile on SEDAR+ at www.sedarplus.ca.

Mr. Eric Sprott, through 2176423 Ontario Ltd., a corporation which is beneficially owned by him, acquired 12,500,000 Units for $0.32 per Unit for a total consideration of $4,000,000. Prior to the Offering, Mr. Sprott beneficially owned or controlled 12,631,819 Common Shares representing approximately 5.6% of the outstanding Common Shares on a non-diluted basis. Following the completion of the Offering, Mr. Sprott beneficially owns and controls 25,131,819 Common Shares and 6,250,000 Warrants representing approximately 9.8% of the outstanding Common Shares on a non-diluted basis and 12.0% on a partially-diluted basis assuming the exercise of such Warrants.

The Units were acquired by Sprott for investment purposes. Mr. Sprott has a long-term view of the investment and may acquire additional securities of the Company including on the open market or through private acquisitions or sell securities of the Company including on the open market or through private dispositions in the future depending on market conditions, reformulation of plans and/or other relevant factors.

In connection with the Offering, the Company paid to the Underwriters a cash commission of $618,177 and issued to the Underwriters 1,931,805 Common Share purchase warrants (the "Broker Warrants"). Each Broker Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at a price of $0.32 per Common Share at any time on or before May 29, 2026.
