Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - March 7, 2024) - Cross River Ventures Corp. (CSE: CRVC) (FSE: C6R) (the "Company" or "Cross River") is pleased to announce the closing of its non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement"). In connection with the closing of the Private Placement, the Company issued 55,400,000 units at a price of $0.005 per unit (the "Units") for gross proceeds to the Company of $277,000. Each Unit consists of one common share (a "Share") and one half of one Share purchase warrant (a "Warrant") with each whole Warrant entitling the holder to purchase one Share of the Company at a price of $0.05 per Share until March 7, 2026.

The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Private Placement for general working capital purposes.

Closing of the Private Placement is subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals including final acceptance of the Canadian Securities Exchange. All securities issued under the Private Placement are subject to a hold period under applicable securities laws in Canada expiring four months and one day from closing of the Private Placement.

A director and an officer of the Company participated in the Private Placement for an aggregate amount of $41,000. The transaction with the officer constitutes a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Company is relying on the exemptions under section 5.5(a) and section 5.7(1)(a) from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101, as the fair market value of the Units issued to the related party and the consideration paid by the related party under the Private Placement does not exceed 25% of Company's market capitalization, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101. The Company did not file a material change report in respect of the related party transaction at least 21 days before the closing of the Private Placement, as the details of the participation by related party of the Company were not settled until shortly prior to closing of the Private Placement.
