East Asia Minerals Re-Announces Private Placement

Vancouver, British Columbia – East Asia Minerals Corporation (the “Company”) (EAS:TSX.V, EAIAF:OTCBB) re-announces its private placement of up to $2,000,000 consisting of 40,000,000 units (the “Units”) at $0.05 per Unit (the “Offering”) where each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company (a “Share”) and one share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant shall entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share in the capital of the Company (a “Warrant Share”) at a price of $0.10 per Warrant Share for a period of 2 years from the closing of the Offering.

The net proceeds of the Offering after payment of commissions will be used by the Company for working capital expenditures related to the Sangihe Project during the final stages of closing the credit facility loan of up to USD$13,500,000 announced on May 31, 2018.

Subject to prior written approval of the Company in its absolute discretion, eligible and accepted subscribers under the foregoing Offering may participate through an exemption contained in Multilateral CSA Notice 45-313 and the various corresponding blanket orders and rules of participating jurisdictions (the “Existing Shareholder Exemption”) or Multilateral CSA Notice 45-318 and various blanket orders and rules of participating jurisdictions (the “Investor Dealer Exemption”).

For eligible and accepted subscribers utilizing the Existing Shareholder Exemption, the Offering is individuals who were shareholders of the Company as at August 31, 2018 (the “Record Date”) (and still are shareholders) who are eligible to participate under the Existing Shareholder Exemption. Any person who became a shareholder of the Company after the Record Date is not permitted to participate in the offerings using the Existing Shareholder Exemption but other exemptions may still be available to them. Shareholders who became shareholders after the record date should consult their professional advisors when completing their subscription form to ensure that they use the correct exemption.

There are conditions and restrictions when relying upon the Existing Shareholder Exemption, namely, the subscriber must: a) be a shareholder of the Company as at the Record Date (and still are a shareholder), b) be purchasing the Units as a principal, i.e. for their own account and not for any other party, and c) may not purchase more than $15,000 value of securities from the Company in any twelve month period. There is one exception to the $15,000 subscription limit. In the event that a subscriber wants to purchase more than $15,000 value of securities then they may do so provided they have first received ‘suitability advice’ from a registered investment dealer and, in this case, subscribers will be asked to confirm the registered investment dealer’s identity and employer.

Subscribers utilizing the Existing Shareholder Exemption must reside in one of the following jurisdictions: Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Ontario, Nova Scotia, Northwest Territories Prince Edward Island, Québec, Saskatchewan and Yukon. Shareholders resident in Newfoundland and Labrador are not permitted to participate in the Offering under the Existing Shareholder Exemption.
