January 20, 2023 – Toronto, Ontario – Paycore Minerals Inc. (TSXV: CORE) (“Paycore” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that due to strong investor demand, it has entered into an amending agreement with PI Financial Corp. and CIBC Capital Markets (collectively, the “Lead Underwriters“), as lead underwriters and co-bookrunners, on their own behalf and, if applicable, on behalf of a syndicate of underwriters (together with the Lead Underwriters, the “Underwriters“) to increase the size of the previously announced bought deal financing to an aggregate of 9,820,000 common shares of the Company (the “Shares”) at a price of $1.63 per Share (the “Offering Price”) for gross proceeds of $16,006,600 (the “Offering”).
In addition, the Company has granted the Underwriter an option (the “Over-Allotment Option”), exercisable in whole or in part, for a period of 30 days following the Closing Date, to purchase up to an additional 15% of the Shares sold pursuant to the Offering, on the same terms as the Offering, to cover over-allotments and for market stabilization purposes.

The Shares may also be offered in the United States to Qualified Institutional Buyers pursuant to exemptions from the registration requirements of the United States Securities Act of 1933 as amended, (the “U.S. Securities Act“), in a manner that does not require the Offering to be registered in the United States, and in certain other jurisdictions in accordance with applicable securities laws.
This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of any of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

Paycore is a corporation incorporated under the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) and, through its subsidiaries, holds a 100% interest in the FAD Property that is located in the heart of the Eureka-Battle Mountain trend in Nevada, USA. The FAD Property is host to the high-grade poly-metallic FAD deposit that was partially delineated with surface and underground drilling in the 1940s and 1950s. The FAD Property is located less than 3 miles from Eureka, Nevada and has established infrastructure, including a shaft, roads and old buildings. FAD was previously owned by Barrick Gold. Barrick acquired the FAD Property when the Company acquired Homestake Mining in 2001.
Overseen by an experienced board and management team that includes Jim Gowans (Non-executive Chairman), Christina McCarthy (President & CEO, and Director), Steve Filipovic (CFO and Corporate Secretary) and John Begeman (Director), the Company is focused on advancing the delineation of mineral deposits on the FAD Project (which is situated immediately to the south of, and along strike from, I-80 Gold Corp’s Ruby Hill Mine).
