VANCOUVER, BC, July 21, 2022 – Bravo Mining Corp. (“Bravo” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the successful closing of its initial public offering (the “Offering”) of 23,000,000 common shares of the Company (“Shares”) at a price of $1.75 per Share (the “Offering Price”) for gross proceeds of $40,250,000. All of Bravo’s directors participated in the Offering.

The Shares are expected to commence trading on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) at the market open on July 25, 2022 under the symbol “BRVO”.

Canaccord Genuity Corp. and BMO Capital Markets acted as co-lead agents for the Offering on behalf of a syndicate that included National Bank Financial Inc., Cormark Securities Inc. and INFOR Financial Inc.

Bravo has granted the agents an over-allotment option (the “Over-Allotment Option”), exercisable in whole or in part, at the sole discretion of the agents, at any time on and for a period of 30 days following the closing of the Offering, to sell up to 3,450,000 additional common shares of the Company (representing 15% of the aggregate number of Shares sold pursuant to the Offering) at the Offering Price, for additional gross proceeds to the Company of $6,037,500 if the Over-Allotment Option is exercised in full.

“We are very pleased with the support shown by our existing and new institutional and retail shareholders. We have built an exceptional register of global resource focused institutional investors with great support by retail investors. This is a testament to the quality of our flagship Luanga platinum group metals (palladium + platinum + rhodium) + gold + nickel (PGM+Au+Ni) project and the calibre of our team”, said Luis Azevedo, Executive Chairman and CEO of Bravo. “The funds raised, combined with our existing balance sheet, are anticipated to be more than sufficient for our proposed Phase 1 and Phase 2 work programs. Phase 1 includes 25,500m of infill, down plunge extensions and step out diamond drilling combined with our ongoing re-assay program of ~52,000m of historic diamond core. This is underway with five drill rigs on site with an additional drill expected prior to the end of the month. Phase 2 includes an additional 21,500m of diamond drilling focused on down plunge extensions and other targets identified on the property. We will also be conducting concurrent baseline environmental and metallurgical testwork activities. We look forward to providing ongoing updates on our exploration activities over the coming weeks and months,” he said. “We would like to thank the tireless efforts of our Cozen O’Connor legal team, led by Lucy Schilling. We would also like to acknowledge the support of our syndicate led by Canaccord Genuity Corp. and BMO Capital Markets and including National Bank Financial Inc., Cormark Securities Inc. and INFOR Financial Inc.”

The Shares have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”), or any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold, within the United States, unless exemptions from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws are available.

Cozen O’Connor LLP acted for Bravo and Cassels Brock & Blackwell LLP acted for the syndicate led by Canaccord Genuity Corp. and BMO Capital Markets and including National Bank Financial Inc., Cormark Securities Inc. and INFOR Financial Inc.

Certain insiders of Bravo participated in the Offering, acquiring an aggregate of 438,542 Shares under the Offering.
