Montreal, Quebec, Canada / October 31, 2016 – HPQ Silicon Resources Inc (“HPQ”) (TSX Venture: HPQ) is pleased to inform its shareholders that it has closed a non-brokered flow through private placement.

Private Placement

The placement of Flow Through Units (“FT Unit”) completed consists in the issuance and sale of an aggregate amount of 5,681,818 FT Unit at $0.22 per Unit for gross proceeds of $1,249,999.96.

Each FT Unit are comprised of one (1) common share and a half (1/2) common share purchase warrant (“Warrant”) of the Company. Each Warrant entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the capital stock of the Company at an exercise price of $ 0.30 during a period of 24 months from the date of closing of the placement.

Each share issued pursuant to the placement will have a mandatory four (4) month holding period from the date of closing of the placement. The placement is subject to standard regulatory approvals.

In Connection with the above placements, the Company paid a cash finder’s fee of $87,500 to Secutor Capital Management Corporation of Toronto, Ontario.

“We are very encourage by the fact that we are now being offered these size financing at a substantial premium (37.5% from last Friday closed of $0.16),” said Bernard Tourillon, Chairman and CEO of HPQ-Silicon. “Of further interest is the fact that the original offer received was for a $2,500,000 financing and that amount closed was lower to $1,250,000 at the sole request of HPQ Silicon”.

The Funds raised will be used to finance our exploration budget on our Roncevaux property by the end of December 2017. In this regard we will be filing soon a new NI 43-101 compliant technical report on the Roncevaux properties regarding our work plan for the delineation of a Quartz resource on the property.
