VANCOUVER, Canada, April 13, 2021 – Sonoro Gold Corp. (TSXV: SGO | OTCQB: SMOFF | FRA: 23SP) (“Sonoro” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that, in response to strong investor demand, it is increasing its non-brokered private placement first announced on March 29, 2021 and initially increased on April 9, 2021 to raise an aggregate of $3,000,000 through exercise of an additional overallotment option.
The Offering price remains $0.18 per Unit, each composed of one Sonoro Common share and one Common share purchase warrant.

Kenneth MacLeod, President and CEO of Sonoro, stated, “The proceeds from the increased private placement will enable our technical teams to complete additional drilling, increasing the results available for consideration in an updated resource estimate, and additional scientific field work and geological structural analysis which will be incorporated into the 43-101 technical report being prepared by Micon International. No further equity financings are anticipated prior to completion of the Preliminary Economic Assessment by D.E.N.M. Engineering, anticipated in summer 2021, which will incorporate the metallurgical testing being conducted by McClelland Laboratories and the 43-101 technical report by Micon.”
The Company intends to pay finder’s fees as permitted under the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange in respect of Units placed with the assistance of registered securities dealers. All securities issued and issuable in connection with the Offering will be subject to a 4-month hold period in Canada from the closing date.

Forward-Looking Statement Cautions:
This press release contains certain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Canadian securities legislation, relating to, among other things: (i) completion of the above-described unit private placement, and the contemplated use of proceeds raised, (ii) completion of the column leach tests, completion of an updated 43-101 resource report and a PEA for the Cerro Caliche project, and (iii) a possible production decision for the Company’s Cerro Caliche project. Although the Company believes that such statements are reasonable based on current circumstances, it can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. Forward-looking statements are statements that are not historical facts; they are generally, but not always, identified by the words “expects,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “intends,” “estimates,” “projects,” “aims,” “potential,” “goal,” “objective,” “prospective,” and similar expressions, or that events or conditions “will,” “would,” “may,” “can,” “could” or “should” occur, or are those statements, which, by their nature, refer to future events. The Company cautions that forward-looking statements are based on the beliefs, estimates and opinions of the Company’s management on the date the statements are made and they involve a number of risks and uncertainties, including the risks that the Company will not be able to successfully sell any or all of the Units; the Company will not be able otherwise to secure the financing necessary to fund its proposed exploration and development of its Cerro Caliche Project, or to fund its other project exploration and development business; future exploration results will be unfavourable and will not support the proposed plan to build a heap leach pilot operation or justify further exploration efforts; equipment failures, accidents, or external problems (e.g. civil unrest, public health emergencies) may materially increase the Company’s business expenses or delay (or prevent altogether) the execution of the Company’s business plans; and unanticipated changes in the legal, regulatory and permitting requirements for the Company’s mineral exploration programs and development plans for its projects, at present, all of which are located in Mexico, may prevent the Company from carrying out some or all of its business plans.
There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. The Company disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law or the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. Readers are encouraged to review the Company’s complete public disclosure record on SEDAR at www.sedar.com for further information regarding the Company’s business and the risks associated therewith.
