(TSXV: YTC.H) ("Yuntone" or the "Company"), a capital pool company, is pleased to announce that further to its news release dated October 27, 2020, Mantaro Silver Corp. ("Mantaro") has completed its over-subscribed non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") of 22,695,152 subscription receipts (each, a "Subscription Receipt") at a price of $0.35 per Subscription Receipt for aggregate gross proceeds of $7,943,303.20.
Yuntone previously announced the proposed amalgamation (the "Transaction") with Mantaro which will constitute the "Qualifying Transaction" of Yuntone, as such term is defined in Policy 2.4 of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange").

Each Subscription Receipt, prior to the closing of the Transaction, will automatically convert into one common share of Mantaro and one-half of one share purchase warrant of Mantaro (each a "Mantaro Warrant"), with each whole Mantaro Warrant exercisable into one common share of Mantaro at an exercise price of $0.55 per share for a period of one year, for no additional consideration upon the satisfaction of certain escrow release conditions, including the conditional approval of the Exchange for the Transaction and satisfaction or waiver of all conditions precedent to the Transaction as set out in the amalgamation agreement. Upon closing of the Transaction, each common share of Mantaro and Mantaro Warrant issued on conversion of the Subscription Receipts will automatically be converted into post-consolidation common shares and warrants of Yuntone.
The net proceeds of the Private Placement are being held in escrow pending completion of the Qualifying Transaction by Mantaro and Yuntone.
