MONTRÉAL, QC / ACCESSWIRE / September 3, 2020 / Sphinx Resources Ltd. ("Sphinx" or the "Corporation") (TSXV:SFX) is pleased to announce that it has increased its previously announced private placement (see news release dated August 27, 2020) from 25,000,000 units (each a "Unit") to a maximum of 37,500,000 Units at a price of $0.02 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $750,000, with a lead order from Palisades Goldcorp Ltd. (the "Private Placement"). Each Unit will be comprised of one common share (each a "Common Share") and one common share purchase warrant (each a "Warrant"). Each Warrant is exercisable to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.05 per Common Share for a period of 60 months from the date of closing of the Private Placement.

The Corporation has set August 26, 2020 as the record date (the "Record Date") for the purpose of determining existing shareholders of Sphinx entitled to participate in the Private Placement pursuant to the Holders' Exemption. Any shareholder purchasing under the Holders' Exemption will have to represent in writing that such shareholder held common shares of the Corporation as of the Record Date and continues to hold them. Also, the aggregate acquisition cost to a subscriber under the Holders' Exemption, when combined with the acquisition cost to the subscriber for the purchase of any other security from the Corporation under the Holders' Exemption in the last 12 months, cannot exceed $15,000, unless that subscriber has obtained advice regarding the suitability of the Private Placement and, if the subscriber is resident in a jurisdiction of Canada, such advice is obtained from a person that is registered as an investment dealer in the subscriber's jurisdiction.
Existing shareholders of Sphinx interested in participating in the Private Placement should contact Sphinx using the contact information set out below as soon as possible as the Private Placement shall be allocated on a "first come, first served" basis until the Private Placement is fully subscribed.
Proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to fund the Corporation's exploration projects, a large portion of which will be allocated to the Calumet-Nord property for drilling purposes, and for general working capital purposes.
The Private Placement is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval and all securities issued in connection with the Private Placement will be subject to a hold period of 4 months and 1 day following the closing.
