Published

Grass Valley, California--(Newsfile Corp. - April 19, 2024) - Rise Gold Corp. (CSE: RISE) (OTCQX: RYES) (the "Company") announces that it has increased the size of the non-brokered private placement previously announced in its April 9, 2024 news release from US$750,000 to US$1,000,000 through the issuance of up to 10,526,316 units (each a "Unit") at a price of US$0. 0.095 per Unit (~CDN$0.128 per Unit), with each Unit comprising one share of common stock (a "Share") and one-half of one share purchase warrant (the "Private Placement"). Each whole warrant (a "Warrant") entitles the holder to acquire one Share at an exercise price of US$0.158 for a period of three years from the date of issuance.

Rise Gold will use the proceeds from the Private Placement for general working capital. All securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to statutory hold periods in accordance with applicable United States and Canadian securities laws.

Certain directors and/or officers of the Company, directly, through entities controlled by them, or through entities for which they exercise control or direction over investment decisions, may participate in the Private Placement. The participation of each of such insiders in the Private Placement would constitute a "related party transaction" under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Company will be relying on exemptions from the formal valuation requirements of section 5.4 of MI 61-101 and minority shareholder approval requirements of section 5.6 of MI 61-101. As the fair market value of the related party's participation is not more than 25% of the Company's market capitalization, the related party transactions are exempt from the formal valuation requirements pursuant to subsection 5.5(a) of MI 61-101 and from the minority approval requirements pursuant to subsection 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101. It is anticipated that some or all of the funds received from certain directors will be used to pay accrued and unpaid debt owed by the Corporation to the respective director, such debts totalling, in aggregate, approximately US$100,000.

The securities offered have not been registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act"), or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold absent registration or compliance with an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
