MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - June 29, 2017) -


Osisko Metals Incorporated (the "Company" or "Osisko Metals") (TSX VENTURE:OM)(FRANKFURT:0B5) (formerly Bowmore Exploration Ltd.) is pleased to announce that it has increased the size of its non-brokered private placement (previously announced on June 23, 2017) (the "Non-Brokered Offering"): (a) from 8,750,000 to 10,000,000 units of the Company (the "Units") at an issue price of C$0.80 per Unit, where each Unit consist of one common share of the Company and one half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole such warrant, a "Warrant"); and (b) from 3,333,333 to 3,850,000 flow-through shares of the Company (the "Flow-Through Shares") at a price of C$0.90 per Flow-Through Share. Each Warrant is exercisable into a common share of the Company at an exercise price of C$1.00 for a period of 24 months. The number of Units, Flow-Through Shares and Warrants, and the subscription and exercise prices thereof, are all presented on a post three for one share consolidation basis.

As a result of the increase, the Company is now raising C$8,000,000 from the sale of Units, and C$3,465,000 from the sale of Flow-Through Shares, pursuant to the Non-Brokered Offering. The size of the concurrent C$15,000,000 brokered private placement of Units, with the underwriter's option to increase to C$17,250,000 (the "Brokered Offering"), remains unchanged.

An amount equal to the net proceeds from the sale of Units pursuant to the Brokered Offering and the Non-Brokered Offering will be used by the Company for exploration activities and general working capital purposes. An amount equal to the gross proceeds from the sale of Flow-Through Shares pursuant to the Non-Brokered Offering will be used to incur eligible expenses.

Closing is expected on or about July 14, 2017. All securities issued in connection with the Non-Brokered Offering and the Brokered Offering will be subject to a four month hold period.

As insiders of the Company intend to subscribe for Units and Flow-Through Shares pursuant to the Non-Brokered Offering, the issuance of those Units and Flow-Through Shares to the insiders (the "Insider Participation") will be considered to be a related party transaction within the meaning of TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"). The Company intends to rely on the exemptions from the requirements of MI 61-101 in respect of any Insider Participation.
