The Offering is being completed pursuant to the Listed Issuer Financing Exemption and accordingly the securities issued in the Offering will not be subject to a hold period pursuant to applicable Canadian securities laws.

Trumbull Fisher, CEO and Director of GCOM commented, "We have been overwhelmed by the positive recognition we have received from current and prospective shareholders on our recent district-scale lithium project acquisition in Argentina, which we expect to close in January. Today's announcement will allow us to advance exploration on our uranium and battery commodity assets, during a time of significant demand in both sectors. Importantly, with the listed issuer financing exemption, we are very pleased to offer a wider range of investors the ability to participate in our growth early on through free trading securities."
Certain eligible finders who direct investors to participate in the Offering shall be paid a cash fee of 7% of the value of the Units sold to such investors and shall be issued such number of finders' warrants ("Finder Warrants") equal to 7% of the Units sold to such investors. Each Finder Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.15 for 24 months following the date of issuance.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to advance its battery commodity and uranium portfolio projects, working capital and general corporate purposes.
The closing of the Offering is anticipated to occur on or about December 22, 2022 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Subject to compliance with applicable regulatory requirements and in accordance with National Instrument 45-106 - Prospectus Exemptions ("NI 45-106"), the Units will be offered for sale to purchasers resident in Canada and/or other qualifying jurisdictions pursuant to the listed issuer financing exemption under Part 5A of NI 45-106 (the "Listed Issuer Financing Exemption").
