(“Explor” or the "Corporation") (TSX-V: EXS, OTCPK: EXSFF, FSE & BE: E1H1) announces that it has renewed at new conditions the $767,500 convertible debentures issued on April 3 and April 10, 2017 that expired on April 3 and April 10, 2019 (the “Placement”). The interests due and not paid have been included in the principal amount and the Corporation also issued a new convertible debenture for an amount of $50,000. The Placement now consists of an amount of 945,212 units at a price of $1.00 per unit (the “Units”), each Unit consisting of a capital amount of $1.00 of convertible debentures (the “Debentures”) and of 10 common share purchase warrants of the Corporation (the “Warrants”).  The one-year term Debentures bear interest at an annual rate of 8% and will be secured by a security on the Corporation’s Timmins Porcupine West Property. Each holder of Debentures will be entitled to convert the principal amount of the Debentures in common shares of the Corporation, at a price of $0.05 per share.  Each Warrant included in a Unit will allow the subscriber to purchase one common share of the Corporation at an exercise price of $0.10 for a period of one year ending July 3, 2020.  Therefore, the Corporation will reserve an aggregate number of 18,904,240 common shares of its capital stock in the event of the conversion of the full principal amount of the Debentures and an aggregate number of 9,452,120 of its capital stock in the event of the exercise of all the Warrants.
