December 31, 2020
(Vancouver, December 31, 2020) – Rokmaster Resources Corp. (TSX-V: RKR) (OTCQB: RKMSF) (FSE: 1RR1) (“Rokmaster” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has closed the non-brokered financing (the “Financing”) involving the issuance of flow-through units (the “Flow-Through Units”) and non-flow-through units (the “Non-Flow-Through Units” and together with the Flow-Through Units, the “Units”).
Pursuant to the Financing, the Company issued a total of 13,727,158 Flow-Through Units at $0.44 per unit, for gross proceeds of $6,039,950, and 9,639,750 Non-Flow-Through Units at $0.32 per unit, for gross proceeds of $3,084,720, for aggregate gross proceeds from the Financing of $9,124,670.
Each Flow-Through Unit is comprised of one flow-through common share of the Company (a “Flow-Through Share”) and one transferrable share purchase warrant to purchase one non-flow-through common share of the Company (a “Warrant Share”) at a price of $0.48 per Warrant Share for a period of two years expiring on December 30, 2022.
Each Non-Flow-Through Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one transferrable share purchase warrant (a “NFT Warrant”) to purchase one Warrant Share at a price of $0.48 for a period of two years expiring on December 30, 2022.
In connection with the closing of the Financing, the Company paid cash finder’s fees of $609,215, and issued 1,562,383 finder’s warrants to Ascenta Finance Corp. (“Ascenta”). Each finder’s warrant entitles Ascenta to purchase one Warrant Share at a price of $0.48 for a period of two years expiring on December 30, 2022.
The securities issued pursuant to the Financing are subject to a four-months and one day hold period expiring May 1, 2021 and were not offered or registered in the United States.
The gross proceeds raised from the sale of the Flow-Through Shares will be used by the Company for exploration financing that will qualify as “Canadian Exploration Expenses”, as that term is defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada) only. The net proceeds raised from the sale of the Non-Flow-Through Units will be used by the Company on non-flow-through eligible project expenses, as well as for general working capital purposes.
John Mirko, Rokmaster’s President and CEO, stated “We are pleased to close this round of financing with investments by Crescat Capital LLC and continued support by DELPHI Unternehmensberatung AG. This puts us on a solid footing to sharply focus on increasing resources at our Revel Ridge Project.”
Rokmaster expects the balance of the Non-Flow-Through Unit financing (see Company News Release dated December, 16, 2020) to close in early January 2021.

Rokmaster controls a portfolio of three significant exploration and development projects all of which are located in southern British Columbia in regions of excellent infrastructure. The three projects include:
- Revel Ridge. Rokmaster is currently conducting an underground drill program at the Revel Ridge project located in southeastern British Columbia 35 km’s N of the City of Revelstoke. Revel Ridge is a high-grade gold and polymetallic orogenic sulphide deposit which has been the subject of a PEA Technical Report dated December 8, 2020.
- Big Copper. Rokmaster controls the Big Copper property in the Creston area of Southern British Columbia. Big Copper is a high-grade copper-silver occurrence hosted in mid-Proterozoic rocks. Copper-silver mineralization has been traced for 3 km along strike and is exposed in a series of adits and trenches over approximately 250- 300 m of vertical relief. Big Copper likely belongs to a class of stratabound replacement copper-silver deposits hosted within mid – Proterozoic quartzitic sediments. The style and stratigraphic setting of mineralization at Big Copper may be analogous to similar stratabound silver-copper deposits in NW Montana e.g. the Troy mine (64 million tonnes of 0.74% Cu and 54 g/t Ag (Western Mining History, 2020) or Hecla’s Montanore Mine, 112 million tonnes at 51.2 g/t Ag and 0.7% Cu. (Hecla website link).
- Duncan Zinc. Duncan Zinc is a carbonate hosted silver-lead-zinc deposit located near Duncan Lake in southern British Columbia. The deposit is hosted within a Cambrian age Badshot Limestone which also hosts silver-lead-zinc mineralization at Teck’s currently producing Pend D’Oreille mine as well as past producers including the Blue Bell Mine, Reeves MacDonald, Jersey-Emerald and HB mines. Mineralization at Duncan Lake forms in the crest and limbs of the regional scale Duncan Lake anticline, where strong lead-zinc +/- silver mineralization has been traced by surface and underground drilling for approximately 2500 m. At Duncan Lake, Rokmaster will be targeting > 30 Mt of >10% Pb+Zn+Ag. Historical background and a geological synthesis of the Duncan Lake deposit is provided in a NI 43-101 report by Lane, B., 2018: Technical Report on the Duncan Lake Project.
