MacDonald Mines Exploration Announces Private Placement of up to $1,000,000

Toronto, Ontario – December 14, 2017 - MacDonald Mines Exploration Ltd. (TSX-V: BMK) ("MacDonald Mines" or the "Company") announces a non-brokered private placement of units (the “Units”) and flow-through units (the “Flow-Through Units”), in such combination to be determined by the Company, for gross proceeds of up to CAD$1,000,000 (the "Offering"). The Company intends to close the Offering on Wednesday, December 20, 2017 subject to the receipt of all regulatory approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Each Unit is offered at a price of $0.09 and is comprised of one Class A common share (a “Common Share”) of the Company and one Common Share purchase warrant (a “Unit Warrant”), each Unit Warrant entitling the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of $0.12 per share for a period of 24 months from the date of closing of the Offering.

Each Flow-Through Unit is offered at a price of $0.10 and is comprised of one Common Share that qualifies as a “flow-through share” as defined in subsection 66(15) of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (a “FT Unit Warrant”) with each full FT Unit Warrant being exercisable to acquire one Common Share (on a non-“flow-through” basis) at a price of $0.15 per share for a period of 24 months from the date of closing of the Offering.

The net proceeds from the Units shall be primarily used for exploration and general working capital purposes. The proceeds from the issuance of Flow-Through Units will be used to incur Canadian Exploration Expenses ("CEE"), and will qualify as "flow-through mining expenditures" under the Income Tax Act (Canada), which will be renounced to the subscribers of Flow-Through Units with an effective date no later than December 31, 2017 in an aggregate amount no less than the proceeds raised from the issue of the Flow-Through Units.
