Royal Helium Ltd. Closes Fully Subscribed Financing

SASKATOON, Saskatchewan, June 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Royal Helium Ltd. (“Royal” or the “Company”) (RHC.V) announces that it has closed the non-brokered private placement financing announced on May 2, 2019.  30,000,000 common shares were issued at a price of $0.01 per share to arms-length and non-arms-length investors for gross proceeds of $300,000.

Net proceeds from the sale of shares will be used to conduct ongoing exploration activities on Royal's helium properties in southwestern Saskatchewan and for general working capital purposes.

The Private Placement is subject to TSX Venture Exchange final acceptance, and all securities are subject to a four month and one day hold period, expiring October 5, 2019. Royal advises that the insiders of the company have participated in the financing, accounting for 26.67% of the total amount raised, which was completed pursuant to available related party exemptions under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions). Cash fees and commissions of $6,750 were paid in connection with the financing.

Royal Helium Ltd.

Royal has over 300,000 acres of prospective helium land in south western and south central Saskatchewan. All of Royal's lands are in close vicinity to highways, roads, cities and importantly, close to existing oil and gas infrastructure, with a significant portion of its land in close proximity to existing helium producing locations. With stable, rising prices and limited, non-renewable sources for helium worldwide, Royal intends to become a leading North American producer of this high value commodity.
