(“Saint Jean” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: SJL) is pleased to announce that is has entered into an Engagement Letter with Sixty Two Capital Pty Ltd.

Each Unit will be comprised of one common share in the capital of the company (each, a “Share”) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional Share (a “Warrant Share”) at an exercise price of $0.25 per Warrant Share and will expire January 31, 2024. The Units will be subject to a four month and one day hold period.

In consideration for acting as the finder, the Company will pay Sixty Two Capital a cash fee equal to 6% of the aggregate gross proceeds from purchasers of Units sourced by the Finder. In addition, subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, and upon successful completion of the Offering, Sixty Two Capital will be issued 3,000,000 non-transferrable finder warrants (“Finder Warrants”).

The Finder Warrants and underlying Finder Warrant Shares will be subject to a four month and one day hold period.

We believe Saint Jean Carbon’s Solid Lithium Battery Development and Graphite Air-Classification Program will enable the Company to establish itself as a leader in electrification technologies.”
