/EIN News/ -- This news release is not for distribution to United States newswire service or for dissemination in the United States

Vancouver, B.C, Nov. 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rugby Resources Ltd. (“Rugby” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: RUG) is pleased to announce that further to the news releases dated November 14 and 27, 2023, it has closed an oversubscribed non-brokered private placement and issued 12,522,540 units (the “Units”) of the Company at a price of $0.05 per Unit for gross proceeds of $626,127 (the “Offering”).

Each Unit consists of one (1) common share and one common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one (1) additional common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.10 for a period of two (2) years from the Closing Date.

Finder’s fees in an aggregate amount of $9,750 were paid to qualified parties in connection with the Offering. All securities issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus a day from issuance in accordance with applicable securities laws of Canada. Closing of the Offering is subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals and final acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.

Proceeds of the Offering will be used for exploration and general expenses. MI 61-101 Disclosure

Certain insiders of the Company participated in the Offering for an aggregate total of 3,000,000 Units. The participation by such insiders is considered a “related-party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company has relied on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 in respect of related party participation in the Offering as neither the fair market value (as determined under MI 61-101) of the subject matter of, nor the fair market value of the consideration for, the transaction, insofar as it involved the related parties, exceeded 25% of the Company’s market capitalization (as determined under MI 61- 101).
