TORONTO, Jan. 18, 2022 /CNW/ - Western Exploration Inc. ("Western Exploration" or the "Company"), a Nevada-focused previous metals exploration company, today announces the terms of a proposed shares-for-debt settlement (the "Debt Settlement Transaction"), pursuant to which the Company has agreed to issue an aggregate of 169,205 units (the "Units") of the Company at a deemed price of $2.65 per Unit in full satisfaction of an aggregate of $448,394 in outstanding professional fees owed to a service provider of the Company. The Debt Settlement Transaction will allow the Company to preserve its cash for use in furtherance of Western Exploration's exploration initiatives in 2022.

Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of the Company (each, a "Common Share") and one common share purchase warrant of the Company (each, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will be exercisable by the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance at an exercise price of $3.975 per Common Share. The Units (including the Common Shares and Warrants underlying the Units) will be subject to a customary four-month hold period from the date of issuance in accordance with applicable securities laws.

The issue price of $2.65 per Unit is equal to the price at which units of the Company were issued pursuant to the brokered private placement completed by the Company concurrent with its reverse takeover transaction, which closed on December 22, 2021.

The completion of the Debt Settlement Transaction remains subject to certain regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") pursuant to Policy 4.3 – Shares for Debt of the Exchange.
