(TSX VENTURE:SRA) (“Stria” or the “Company”) announces that it is effecting a private placement of a minimum of 5 million units ($200,000) and a maximum of 12.5 million units ($500,000) at a price of $0.04 per unit. Each of the units will be comprised of one common share and one common share purchase warrant; each warrant will entitle its holder to acquire one additional common share of Stria at a price of $0.05 per share for a period of 36 months from the closing date.
The units will be offered to Stria shareholders (the “Eligible Stria Shareholders”) of record as of the close of business on July 6, 2017 (the “Record Date”) pursuant to the “Existing Security Holders” exemption of OSC Rule 45-501 – Ontario Prospectus and Registration Exemptions, and similar prospectus exemptions in other provinces of Canada (the “Existing Shareholder Exemption”) , as well as to “accredited investors” in some or all of the provinces of Canada and in other jurisdictions, if any, determined by Stria. Subscriptions by shareholders are subject to a number of conditions, including a limit of $15,000 unless the shareholder has received advice regarding the suitability of an investment in the units from a registered investment dealer. The Company expects to close on at least the minimum Offering on or before July 19, 2017, which remains subject to regulatory approval. Any Eligible Stria Shareholder who wishes to participate in the Offering is asked to please contact Judith Mazvihwa-MacLean, CFO of the Company, at (613) 702-0789 or by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org in order to receive subscription documentation and instructions. The Offering will remain open to existing shareholders until July 14, 2017. Orders will be processed by the Company on a first come, first served basis such that it is possible that a subscription received from a shareholder may not be accepted by the Company if the Offering is over subscribed. Any person who becomes a shareholder of Stria after the Record Date shall not be entitled to participate in the Offering under the Existing Shareholder Exemption.
In connection with the private placement, Stria may pay a cash commission to various securities dealers in an amount equal to 7% of the proceeds from the sale of units through such dealers. Stria may also issue non-transferable warrants to such dealers in an amount equal to 7% of the number of units sold through them.

Over the next six month period, the Company shall use the gross proceeds of the Offering as follows: (i) in the event of the minimum Offering, the Company will use the proceeds for general corporate purposes ($66,000), which includes the further development of its lithium extraction process, to pay the finder’s fee under the Offering (up to $14,000) and to reduce it current liabilities ($120,000); (ii) in the event of the maximum Offering, the Company will use the proceeds for general corporate purposes ($120,000), which includes the further development of its lithium extraction process, to conduct an exploration program on its Pontax spodumene lithium property ($225,000), to pay the finder’s fee under the Offering (up to $35,000) and to reduce it current liabilities ($120,000).
