[TSX.V:CERT][OTCQX:CRDOF] ("Cerrado" or the "Company") announces that it has filed proxy related materials, including its notice of annual and special meeting of shareholders and management information circular (collectively, the "Meeting Materials") on SEDAR+ at www.sedarplus.com in respect of its annual and special meeting of shareholders to be held on June 27, 2024 (the "Shareholder Meeting").

The Company also announces that it anticipates filing this week its audited annual financial statements and management's discussion and analysis for the year ended December 31, 2023 (the "Financial Statements"). Filing the Financial Statements is one of the conditions to receiving payment of the third advance of US$7 million (the "Third Advance") from Amarillo Mineração do Brasil Ltda. ("Amarillo"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hochschild. Receipt of the Third Advance is subject to, and is expected to be received two business days following, satisfaction of all conditions which, as of the date hereof, the Company believes have been satisfied other than with respect to filing the Financial Statements. Funds received from the Third Advance will be used to fund immediate obligations of Cerrado and ongoing corporate G&A.

Cerrado has granted to Amarillo the option to purchase a 100% interest in the Company's Monte Do Carmo project located in the State of Tocantins, Brazil (the "Proposed Transaction"), for total consideration of US$60 million (approximately C$80 million) (the "Purchase Price"), subject to the fulfilment of certain conditions.

The Third Advance will complete the total US$15 million initially advanced by way of a 10% interest-bearing secured loan (the "Signing Loan"). Upon Cerrado obtaining shareholder approval for the Proposed Transaction at the Shareholder Meeting, the Signing Loan, together with all accrued and unpaid interest thereon and expenses relating thereto, shall be deemed to be repaid in full by Cerrado by the concurrent set off of an amount equal to the Signing Loan due by Amarillo as part of the Purchase Price. If Cerrado fails to secure the Cerrado Shareholder Approval on or before June 30, 2024, the Signing Loan will mature on September 30, 2024, however Hochschild shall be entitled, in its sole discretion, to accelerate the Signing Loan as early as July 1, 2024.
