Vancouver, Canada –July 24, 2020- Aztec Minerals Corp. (AZT: TSX-V, OTCQB: AZZTF) announces that it has closed the final tranche of its recently announced private placement equity financing. The final tranche of the private placement consisted of 3.18 million units priced at CAD$0.30 per unit for total proceeds of CAD$955,000. Each unit consists of one common share in the capital of the company and one-half (1/2) warrant with each full warrant exercisable to purchase an additional common share at an exercise price of CAD$0.40 for a two-year period following the closing of the private placement.
The securities are subject to a four-month plus one day hold period ending on November 25, 2020 in accordance with applicable securities laws and the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”). Finders’ fees were paid in cash and warrants, having the same terms as the warrants issued to purchasers under the private placement, on certain portions of the financing.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the unit private placement to conduct exploration work on its Tombstone CRD silver-gold-lead-zinc-copper project in Arizona and its Cervantes Porphyry gold-copper project in Mexico, and for general working capital purposes.
Also the Company repaid working capital loans of CAD$60,000 plus interest to two directors and a strategic investor. The demand loans bear interest at a rate of 12% per annum and had a term of 6 months which can be prepaid without penalty.
