Ares Announces Convertible Debenture Offering

Vancouver, B.C. – November 22, 2022 – Ares Strategic Mining Inc. (the “Company” or “Ares”)) (CSE: ARS; OTC: ARSMP; FRA: N81) wishes to announce that it intends to undertake an offering (the “Offering”) of secured convertible debentures in the aggregate principal amount of $1,000,000 (the “Debentures”), for the purposes of a potential mine acquisition. The Company intends to use the majority of the proceeds of the Debentures to finance potential acquisitions of assets or businesses in the mineral resource sector.

The Debentures will mature on the date that is two (2) years from the date of issuance (the “Maturity Date”) and bear interest at a rate of 12% per annum, payable semi-annually. The holders shall have the right to convert the principal sum of the Debentures and any unpaid interest into common shares of the Company (each, a “Conversion Share”) at a price of $0.26 per Conversion Share at any time and from time to time until the Maturity Date, or such other conversion price that is acceptable to the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE”). As security for the repayment of the principal sum and interest under the Debentures, the Company intends to grant to the holder of the Debentures a security interest in certain of the Company’s present and after-acquired personal property.

The Company may pay registered persons a fee in accordance with the policies of the CSE and applicable securities laws comprised of cash, in an amount equal to 8% of the gross proceeds of the Debentures, and such number of share purchase warrants equal to 8% of the number of common shares issuable upon the conversion of the Debentures. Each finder’s warrant shall be exercisable into one common share in the capital of the Company at an exercise price of $0.26 per share for a term of two (2) years from the date of issuance. The Offering will be subject to approval of the CSE. The Debentures, finder’s warrants, and any securities issued upon the conversion or exercise thereof, as applicable, will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance.
