OTTAWA, ON, Dec. 7, 2021 /CNW/ - Further to its press release dated November 30, 2021 (the "First Press Release"), Northern Shield Resources Inc.("Northern Shield" or the "Company") (TSXV: NRN) announces that it intends to extend the exercise period of a further 2,050,001 share purchase warrants, all of which are exercisable at $0.10 per common share (collectively, the "Warrants"). The Warrants were issued pursuant to a private placement which closed in two tranches in December of 2019, with the first tranche closing on December 9, 2019 (the "First Tranche") (with the applicable warrant extensions announced in the First Press Release) and the second tranche closing on December 17, 2019 (the "Second Tranche"). The Company proposes to extend the expiry dates for these Second Tranche Warrants by six months (as it did for the First Tranche warrants) and accordingly, the new expiry dates for the Warrants will be June 17, 2022.

All other terms and conditions of the Warrants remain unchanged. The Warrant extension is subject to acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.

As disclosed in the First Press Release, a total of 1,087,963 Warrants are held by parties who are considered to be "related parties" of the Company (the "Related Party Warrants").   All of the Related Party Warrants were issued in the First Tranche.  The amendment of the Warrant terms may constitute a "related party transaction" as contemplated by Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Shareholders in Special Transactions, and TSXV Policy 5.9 - Protection of Minority Shareholders in Special Transactions. However, exemptions from formal valuation and minority approval requirements contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 can be relied on by the Company as neither the fair market value of the subject matter of, nor the fair market value of the consideration for, the Warrants, insofar as it involved related parties, exceeded 25% of the Company's market capitalization. A material change report in respect of this related party transaction will be filed by the Company in due course.
