VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Dec. 14, 2017) -


Bankers Cobalt Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BANC) (the "Corporation" or "Bankers") announces the closing of its non-brokered private placement previously announced in the Corporation's news release dated November 16, 2017 (the "Financing"). Due to heavy demand, Bankers increased the financing from 15,000,000 units for aggregate proceeds of CAD $6,000,000 to 17,500,000 units for aggregate gross proceeds of CAD $7,000,000. Each unit was priced at CAD $0.40 and consisted of one common share of the Corporation and one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant is exercisable into one common share of the Corporation at an exercise price of CAD $0.60 per common share for a period of three years from the date of issuance.

In connection with the Financing, the Corporation paid cash finders' fees to certain finders totaling CAD $430,630 and granted a total of 1,233,750 warrants (each, a "Finder's Warrant"). Each Finder's Warrant is exercisable into one common share of the Corporation at an exercise price of CAD $0.60 per common share for a period of three years from the date of issuance.

The proceeds from the Financing will be used to fund the exploration and development of the Corporation's mineral concessions in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (the "DRC"), the acquisition of interests in additional mineral concessions and for general working capital purposes.

The securities issued pursuant to the Financing are subject to a hold period under applicable securities laws, which will expire four months plus one day from the date of closing of the Financing.

Stephen Barley and Kevin Torudag from Bankers stated, "We appreciate the continuing support from the investment community and our shareholders. Even with the increase in the private placement to CAD $7,000,000, the offering was over-subscribed. These funds will allow Bankers to aggressively continue with our ongoing exploration activities in the DRC."

About Bankers

Bankers is a natural resource company focused on the acquisition, exploration and development of cobalt and copper mineral properties in the DRC. Bankers holds rights to 14 separate mineral concessions strategically located in the southern DRC Copperbelt and having a total area in excess of 210 km². Bankers has the intention to acquire interests in additional concessions. All concessions were obtained as either new grants or through reputable DRC partners and have clean title with no government involvement, making Bankers one of the few, and perhaps only, junior public mining company in the DRC to have 14 concessions capable of being currently explored and developed. Bankers has an experienced operations team operating in the southern Copperbelt of the DRC. Bankers believes it is one of the front runners in advancing cobalt and copper exploration by a junior mining company in the DRC.
