On April 17, 2024, 2176423 Ontario Ltd., a corporation beneficially owned by Eric Sprott, acquired 5,128,500 common shares of Rio2 Ltd. for total consideration of $2,000,115 pursuant to a private placement.

As a result of the acquisition, Mr. Sprott now beneficially owns 31,061,871 shares representing approximately 9.8 per cent of the outstanding shares on a non-diluted basis. The acquisition, combined with previous treasury issuances of shares, resulted in a decrease in holdings of approximately 0.3 per cent since the date of the last filing of an early warning report and brings total holdings to under 10 per cent on a non-diluted basis.
