NOT FOR DISSEMINATION OR DISTRIBUTION INTO THE UNITED STATES OR THROUGH UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES

TORONTO, ON / June 15, 2022 / EV Nickel Inc. (TSXV:EVNI) (“EVNi” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) for gross proceeds of up to C$2,000,000 from the sale of any combination of flow-through units of the Company (each, a “FT Unit”) at a price of C$0.18 per FT Unit and FT Units to be sold to charitable purchasers (each, a “Charity FT Unit”) at a price of C$0.24 per Charity FT Unit.

The Proceeds of the Offering will be primarily used towards Phase 3 exploration on the Company’s Langmuir

Project.

Each FT Unit and Charity FT Unit will consist of one common share of the Company to be issued as a “flow-through share” within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (each, a “FT Share”) and one half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company (each, a “Warrant Share”) at a price of C$0.25 for a period of 24 months following the closing date of the Offering.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds raised from the Offering for the exploration of the Company’s Shaw

Dome Project located south of Timmins in Ontario. Proceeds from the sale of FT Shares will be used to incur “Canadian exploration expenses” as defined in subsection 66.1(6) of the Income Tax Act and “flow through mining expenditures” as defined in subsection 127(9) of the Income Tax Act. Such proceeds will be renounced to the subscribers with an effective date not later than December 31, 2022, in the aggregate amount of not less than the total amount of gross proceeds raised from the issue of FT Shares.

The FT Shares and Warrant Shares will be subject to a hold period expiring four months and one day from their date of issuance. A finder’s fee may be paid on a portion of the proceeds from the Offering. Closing of the Offering is anticipated to occur on or before June 29, 2022 and is subject to customary closing conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of applicable regulatory approvals, including the approval of the listing of the FT Shares and Warrant Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange.

Finders’ fees may be payable in connection with the Offering and those qualified persons involved as finders will receive a cash fee of up to 7% of the proceeds raised and such number of common share purchase warrants equal to up to 7% of the total number of FT Units or Charity FT Units sold, as applicable, in relation to subscribers introduced by any particular finder.

The securities offered have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”), or any applicable state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold to, or for the account or benefit of, persons in the United States or “U.S. persons,” as such term is defined in Regulation S promulgated under the U.S. Securities Act, absent registration or an exemption from such registration requirements. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
