Furthermore, at the Special Meeting, the minority shareholders of the Corporation approved (i) the acquisition of the 19,840,000 Subscription Receipts (the "Subscription Receipts") at an issue price of $0.125 per Subscription Receipt by Osisko Mining, together with the execution by the Corporation of the previously announced amended Investor Rights Agreement with Osisko Mining, and (ii) the execution by the Corporation of the previously announced Royalty Option Agreement with Osisko Mining, by 99.97% and 99.97%, respectively, of the votes cast by the minority shareholders of the Corporation present or represented by proxy at the Special Meeting, excluding the Shares held by Osisko Mining and its related parties or joint actors, as required by Regulation 61-101 respecting Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions.

Mark Fedosiewich, President and CEO of Vior, stated, "We are proud to announce the results of this Special Meeting and the continued support of our shareholders. These results signal another milestone towards fulfilling our ambitious strategic goals at our flagship Belleterre Gold Project in Québec. We are confident that we will execute the amended Investor Rights Agreement and the Royalty Option Agreement in the coming days, and that parties will satisfy the required conditions to ensure the conversion of the Subscription Receipts."

Subscription Receipts

The Subscription Receipts are convertible securities created and issued pursuant to a Subscription Receipt Certificate and an Escrow Agreement, both dated March 28, 2024, with each Subscription Receipt entitling the holder to receive one unit of the Corporation (a "Unit") upon the satisfaction of the Escrow Release Conditions (as defined herein) before the Escrow Release Deadline (as defined herein), without any action or payment on the part of Osisko Mining. Each Unit is comprised of one Common Share and one-half of one Share Purchase Warrant of the Corporation (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.21 per Share for a period of 24 months following March 28, 2024.

The gross proceeds from the sale of the Subscription Receipts (the "Escrowed Funds") have been placed into escrow and will only be released to the Corporation upon the satisfaction of certain Escrow Release Conditions (the "Escrow Release Conditions"), including the required shareholder approvals at the Special Meeting. If the Escrow Release Conditions are not satisfied on or before June 30, 2024 (the "Escrow Release Deadline"), then the Escrowed Funds, together with accrued interest earned thereon (if any), will be returned to Osisko Mining, and the Subscription Receipts will be cancelled.
