Halifax, September 22, 2022 - EDM Resources Inc. (TSXV: EDM) ("EDM" or the "Company") is pleased to provide the following update on the Company's planned activities.
The President and CEO, Mr. Mark Haywood, commented: "Now that we have completed a major milestone of the Company with financing approvals in place for commercial production at the Scotia Mine, the Company has initiated its marketing efforts to build the awareness of EDM and its compelling opportunity for investors.
Red Cloud Financial Services Inc. ("Red Cloud") were engaged yesterday on a 12-month term to perform a range of marketing services designed to build EDM's profile in the North American capital markets, including the retail sector.
In addition, I am pleased to mention that the Scotia Mine will be hosting a community open day event at the mine on October 1, 2022, to showcase the Mine's potential to the community in the vicinity of the mine. With over 140 skilled and unskilled employees required for the 14-year mine life, the Mine's direct benefits to the community are significant, along with indirect benefits of spending of approximately $30 million on the project next year as we move towards commercial production."

Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from EDM's expectations include, among others, the degree to which mineral resource and reserve estimates are reflective of actual mineral resources and reserves, the degree to which factors are present which would make a mineral deposit commercially viable, the price of zinc, lead and gypsum, uncertainties relating to availability and costs of financing needed in the future, changes in equity markets, risks related to international operations, the actual results of current exploration activities, delays in the development of projects, conclusions of economic evaluations and changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined as well as future prices of metals, ability to predict or counteract potential impact of COVID-19 coronavirus on factors relevant to the Company's business, as well as those factors discussed in the section entitled "Risk Factors" in EDM's management's discussion and analysis of the Company's annual financial statements for the period ended December 31, 2021. Although EDM has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially, there may be other factors that cause results to be not as anticipated, estimated or intended.
