(TSX-V: PGC; Frankfurt: 4Y7 or WKN: A0M2QX) (“Plato” or the “Company”) announces the closing of the non-brokered private placement of 1,100,000 units (“Units”) at a price of CAN$0.05 per Unit for gross proceeds of $55,000, previously announced on November 3, 2020 (the “Offering”) and amended on November 24, 2020 and December 11, 2020.
Each Unit will consist of one (1) common share in the capital stock of Plato (“Common Share”) and one common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”).

The Corporation intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering to conduct drilling on the company's Holloway gold property, prepare the company's Lolita property in Santa Cruz, Argentina for an upcoming drill program, and general working capital purposes.
The participation in the Offering by James Cohen, and Anthony Cohen are “related party transactions” as such terms are defined by Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“), requiring the Corporation, in the absence of exemptions, to obtain a formal valuation for and minority shareholder approval of the “related party transactions”. The Corporation is relying on an exemption from the requirement to obtain formal valuation and minority shareholder approval as the fair market value of the participation in the Offering by the Insiders does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Corporation, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101.
Completion of the Offering is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and applicable securities regulatory authorities.
