VANCOUVER, British Columbia, September 7, 2018 – Ascot Resources Ltd (TSX.V: AOT; OTCQX: AOTVF) (“Ascot” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that, subject to regulatory approval, it will undertake a non-brokered private placement offering (the “Offering”) to a consortium of accredited investors of up to 3,000,000 common shares of the Company that will qualify as "flow-through shares" (within the meaning of subsection 66(15) of the Income Tax Act (Canada)) (collectively, the "Flow-Through Shares") at a price of C$1.00 per Flow-Through Share for gross proceeds of up to $3,000,000.

In connection with the Offering, the Company will pay, subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval, a cash fee of 6.5% of the gross proceeds raised by the finders and issue non-transferable warrants (“Finder’s Warrants”) equal to 6.5% of the Flow-Through Shares sold pursuant to the efforts of finders. The Finder’s Warrants will be exercisable at $1.00 per Finder’s Warrant into common shares of the Company for a period of eighteen months from the closing of the Offering.

The Company has expanded its 2018 Drill Program and intends to use the funds from this Offering to continue drilling through October 2018. The gross proceeds from the issuance of Flow-Through Shares will be used for “Canadian exploration expenses”, and will qualify as “flow-through mining expenditures” under the Income Tax Act (Canada), which will be renounced with an effective date no later than December 31, 2018 to the initial purchasers of Flow-Through Shares in an aggregate amount not less than the gross proceeds raised from the issue of the Flow-Through Shares. The Flow-Through Shares issued in the Offering will be subject to a hold period expiring four months and one day from the closing date of the Offering.

The Company intends to make the Offering available to existing shareholders in British Columbia under the “Existing Shareholder Exemption” under B.C. Instrument 45-534 and in other Canadian jurisdictions that have adopted similar exemptions from the prospectus requirement. The Company has set September 6, 2018 as the record date for the purpose of determining existing shareholders entitled to purchase Flow-Through Shares under the Existing Shareholder Exemption. Subscribers purchasing Flow-Through Shares under the Existing Shareholder Exemption will need to represent in writing that they meet certain requirements, including that they were on or before the record date a shareholder of Ascot and are still a shareholder and certain limitations will apply to the aggregate subscription amount unless the subscriber has received suitability advice from a registered investment dealer. In the event that the Offering is oversubscribed, Ascot may increase the size of the Offering, or allocate subscriptions on a pro rata basis, to those subscribers whose subscriptions were first received by Ascot.

The Offering is expected to close on or about September 27, 2018 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and the applicable securities regulatory authorities.
