Palisades Goldcorp Ltd. Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid
Vancouver, British Columbia, March 29, 2023 – Palisades Goldcorp Ltd. (TSX-V: PALI) (“Palisades” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSX-V”) has accepted the Company’s notice of intention to make a normal course issuer bid (the “NCIB”) for common shares in the capital of the Company (“Common Shares”) through the facilities of the TSX-V. On April 1, 2023, the Company may commence making purchases of up to a maximum of 2,467,298 Common Shares, which represents approximately 5% of the Company’s issued and outstanding Common Shares as at the close of trading on March 28, 2023. A purchase of Common Shares under the NCIB also may not, when aggregated with the total of any other purchases in the 30 days preceding the purchase, whether through the facilities of the TSX-V or otherwise, exceed 2% of the total issued and outstanding Common Shares of the Company at the time the purchase is made.
The Company believes that the current market price of the Common Shares does not adequately reflect its underlying value and future prospects and that the repurchase of Common Shares at current market prices through the NCIB is an appropriate use of corporate funds.
PI Financial Corp. will be conducting the NCIB on behalf of the Company. Any Common Shares acquired under the NCIB will be purchased at the market price. All Common Shares acquired by the Company pursuant to the NCIB will be cancelled following purchase.
The NCIB will terminate on March 31, 2024, unless terminated earlier at the option of the Company upon prior notice being given to the TSX-V or as of the date on which the Company shall have acquired all of the Common Shares sought pursuant to the NCIB.
There can be no assurance as to the number of Common Shares, if any, that may be repurchased under the NCIB or the aggregate dollar amount expended. The Company may discontinue purchases at any time, subject to compliance with applicable regulatory requirements.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements:
This news release contains “forward-looking information” within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities legislation (collectively, the “forward-looking statements”). Forward-looking statements are statements that are not historical facts; they are generally, but not always, identified by the words “will”, “can”, “may”, “could”, “expects”, “plans”, “anticipates” and similar expressions which, by their nature, refer to future events. Forward-looking statements included herein include, but are not limited to, statements with respect to the Company purchasing Common Shares under the NCIB in the amount contemplated herein, if at all. Although the Company believes that such statements are reasonable, it can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. The Company cautions that forward-looking statements are based on the beliefs, assumptions, estimates and opinions of the Company’s management on the date the statements are made, including, with respect to the forward-looking statements contained herein, the assumption that market price of the Common Shares will not significantly differ within the next twelve (12) months so as to render the repurchase of the Common Shares an inappropriate use of corporate funds. Consequently, there can be no assurances that such statements will prove to be accurate and actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Factors that could cause future results to differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements include risks associated with the volatility of the Common Shares and global financial conditions, risks arising from inflation, pandemics, global political disputes and other disruptions, changes in tax laws, deviation from the Company’s current business model, as well as those risk factors set out in the Company’s long form non-offering prospectus dated January 20, 2023 available under the Company’s profile under the Canadian Securities Administrators’ System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR) at www.sedar.com. Except to the extent required by applicable securities laws and the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange, the Company undertakes no obligation to update these forward-looking statements if management’s beliefs, estimates or opinions, or other factors, should change.
