Vancouver, British Columbia – Arras Minerals Corp. (TSX-V: ARK) (“Arras” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement financing (the “Offering”) of up to 7,692,308 units of the Company (“Units”) at a price per Unit of C$0.26 (the “Offering Price”) for aggregate gross proceeds of up to C$2 million.
 
Darren Klinck, President of Arras, commented, “Over the past 18 months since we announced the initial strategic equity investment by Teck, Arras has successfully and significantly advanced our project portfolio in Kazakhstan with the funding from that associated financing in 2022. We are now pleased to have a strategic alliance with Teck on a portion of our land package and a US$2.5 million budget in 2024 funded by Teck which is expected to advance targets to drill-ready status this year. In addition, the highly successful soil-sampling program at our 100%-owned Elemes project which we announced results from in Q1 this year, has attracted considerable attention from major mining companies as we have identified two coherent copper-in-soil anomalies stretching more than 8 km each and containing porphyry mineralization which Arras intends to begin testing later this year.”
 
Tim Barry, CEO of Arras, went on to add, “As we commence our third field season this month in Kazakhstan, we expect to be advancing and drilling at least three new copper-gold porphyry targets this year. By utilizing modern exploration techniques in a region that has had very little to no exploration focus since pre-1990, our thesis is continuing to strengthen that the Bozshakol-Chingiz metallogenic belt has the potential to contain multiple new copper-gold deposits masked under shallow cover. This is truly a very exciting time for Arras as we quickly advance in a new tier-one jurisdiction for exploration of base and precious metals.”
