Vancouver, British Columbia, November 19, 2021 – Silver Elephant Mining Corp. (“Silver Elephant”, or the “Company”) (TSX: ELEF, OTCQX: SILEF, Frankfurt: 1P2N) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Flying Nickel Mining Corp. (“Flying Nickel”) has increased the size of its private placement announced on October 26, 2021 (the “Flying Nickel Offering”) from $7.0 million to a maximum of $8.6 million.  Under the upsized Flying Nickel Offering, Flying Nickel will sell a combination of subscription receipts comprised of non-flow through subscription receipts (each, a “Non-FT Subscription Receipt”) at a price of $0.70 per Non-FT Subscription Receipt and flow-through eligible subscription receipts (each, a “FT Subscription Receipt”, and collectively with the Non-FT Subscription Receipts, the “Offered Securities”) at a price of $0.77 per FT Subscription Receipt. Red Cloud Securities Inc. (“Red Cloud”), as lead agent and sole bookrunner, together with Canaccord Genuity Corp., are acting as agents (the “Agents”) under the Offering.

Blackstone Minerals Limited (“Blackstone”), an ASX-listed integrated battery metals processing company with operations in Vietnam, has agreed to make a $2,975,000 strategic investment in the Flying Nickel Offering by purchasing 4,250,000 Non-FT Subscription Receipts. Upon the closing of the Flying Nickel Offering and the satisfaction of certain escrow release conditions, Blackstone is estimated to own 6.85% of the outstanding common shares of Flying Nickel and 9.5% of Flying Nickel shares on a fully diluted basis.

Details Regarding the Flying Nickel Offering

Upon the satisfaction of certain escrow release conditions (the “Escrow Release Conditions”), the Offered Securities shall be deemed to be exercised, without payment of any additional consideration and without further action on the part of the holder thereof, for the following:

  • Each Non-FT Subscription Receipt shall be automatically converted into one unit of Flying Nickel (each, a “Unit”); and
  • Each FT Subscription Receipt shall be automatically converted into one common share of Flying Nickel to be issued as a “flow-through share” within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (each, a “FT Share”).

Each Unit will consist of one common share of Flying Nickel (each a “Unit Share”) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each whole Warrant shall entitle the holder to purchase one common share of Flying Nickel (each, a “Warrant Share”) at a price of $1.00 at any time on or before that date which is 24 months after the date of issuance of the Units.

The Escrow Release Conditions amongst others include the approval of the plan of arrangement for the transfer of the Minago Nickel Project in Manitoba into Flying Nickel (the “Arrangement”) by Silver Elephant shareholders, and the Toronto Stock Exchange. The Arrangement is scheduled for Silver Elephant shareholder vote in December 2021. It is expected that Flying Nickel will list its common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange shortly thereafter.

The proceeds of the Flying Nickel Offering will be kept in escrow and not released to Flying Nickel unless the Escrow Release Conditions are satisfied by the deadline provided in the terms of the subscription receipt agreement that will govern the Offered Securities. Following the satisfaction of the Escrow Release Conditions, the net proceeds of the Flying Nickel Offering will be used for the exploration and advancement of the Minago Nickel Project as well as for general working capital purposes. The Flying Nickel Offering is scheduled to close on or around November 24, 2021 and is subject to TSX approval.
