(CSE:SX)(OTCQB:SXOOF)(FSE:85G1) is pleased to announce the closing of a $625,500 first tranche of its previously announced non-brokered private placement of units at a price of $0.10 per Unit.

In connection with the First Tranche, the Corporation paid cash finder's fees of $3,000 and issued 30,000 compensation warrants (each, a "Compensation Warrant") to an arm's length finder. Each Compensation Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Share at a price of $0.15 until the date that is 24 months from the issuance date of the Compensation Warrant.

The Corporation will use the proceeds of the Private Placement towards its battery recycling operation and general working capital.

Certain insiders of the Corporation participated in the First Tranche for a total of $223,000, which is a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The issuances to the insiders are exempt from the valuation requirement of MI 61-101 by virtue of the exemption contained in section 5.5(b) as the Corporation's shares are not listed on a specified market and from the minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 by virtue of the exemption contained in section 5.7(a) of MI 61-101 in that the fair market value of the consideration of the securities issued to the related parties did not exceed 25% of the Corporation's market capitalization.
