A Message from the Chairman of Sonoro Gold Corp.

June 20, 2023

John M. Darch, Chairman.

Dear Valued Shareholder,

I’m pleased to advise that today the Company closed the first tranche of the previously announced $3,000,000 non-brokered private placement by issuing 17,000,000 units at a price of C$0.10 per Unit, for gross proceeds of up to C$1,700,000. Directors and Officers of the Company participated in this tranche by subscribing for 13,187,260 units for gross proceeds of $1,318,726. To read today’s news release, please click here.

Proceeds from the financing will fund the ongoing development of our flagship Cerro Caliche gold project in Sonora, Mexico which is currently in the permitting phase. Approximately 30% of the proceeds will fund a targeted infill drilling campaign at the El Colorado and Guadalupe gold mineralized zones located in the southwestern region of the property.

Management believes that increasing the average grade and size at the El Colorado and Guadalupe vein zones may not only enhance the overall economics of the project but also support our ongoing efforts to secure debt financing.

You may recall that drilling results from the last program demonstrated multiple high-grade ore shoots and returned higher-grade gold intercepts within larger intervals of high-grade gold mineralization. To review the drilling results, click here for our news release dated March 1, 2022 and click here for our news release dated April 21, 2022.

Proceeds will also be used to complete a revised Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) based on the updated Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE) prepared by SRK Consulting (U.S.) Inc. and filed March 24, 2023. The PEA will update the economic potential of our proposed heap-leap mining operation and results are expected to be announced in the next quarter.

As I have stated on multiply occasions, our objective is to bring Cerro Caliche into early production so we can fund additional exploration and development with minimum dilution to our shareholders. To date, we have drilled and assayed just over 30% of the known mineralized gold zones at Cerro Caliche. SRK’s report noted favorably on the upside potential of the project with additional gold ounces potentially within the drilled areas of Cerro Caliche’s mineralized gold zones.

We anticipate closing the second and final tranche of the financing by the end of the month and investors are required to confirm no later than this Friday, June 23, 2023.
