("Centerra") personnel have returned to Mammoth's Tenoriba gold-silver property located in the prolific Sierra Madre precious metal belt in southwestern Chihuahua State, Mexico. Mammoth would also like to announce a non brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") of up to 3,700,000 shares at an offering price based on the 10-day volume weighted average share price of $0.035 per share.

Following the notice of the Mexican government in late March regarding travel and social restriction measures in response to the threat of the spread of the COVID-19, work ceased on the Tenoriba project. Certain of these restrictions have recently been lifted and Centerra personnel, following all government work guidelines have returned to the project with the intention of recommencing the first half 2020 program of detailed structural, lithologic and alteration mapping and sampling. As results become available from this work Mammoth looks forward to reporting on these results.
Mammoth would like to announce a non brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") of up to 3,750,000 shares at an offering price based on the 10-day volume weighted average share price of $0.035 per share, for gross proceeds of up to $131,250. Proceeds from this financing are to be used for working capital purposes, including corporate development expenses. Mammoth last completed a capital raise in December 2017.
This Private Placement is conducted in reliance upon British Columbia Instrument 45-534 (the "Instrument"), which permits an issuer to distribute securities to its existing shareholders, subject to the terms of the instrument. The Company has set May 27, 2020, as the record date for the purpose of determining existing shareholders of the Company who are entitled to purchase shares under the Private Placement.

OSC Instrument 51-502, Temporary Exemption:
The COVID-19 pandemic is creating unprecedented challenges to the global economy and capital markets. Mammoth's board of directors and management are taking all necessary precautions to ensure the health of its employees and best manage the short-term challenges to the business.
On March 18, 2020, Canadian securities regulatory authorities issued a notice stating that securities regulators will be providing coordinated relief consisting of a 45-day extension for certain periodic filings required to be made on or prior to June 1, 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As such the Ontario Securities Commission has enacted Ontario Instrument 51-502 Temporary Exemption (the "Exemption") from Certain Corporate Finance Requirements ("Instrument 51-502"). Mammoth would like to inform shareholders that due to the various social restrictions resulting from measures taken by governments in Canada and Mexico, and administrative challenges associated with these social restrictions, the company finds it prudent to employ this Exemption, Instrument 51-502 which enables Mammoth exemptive relief to delay the filing of its audited annual financial statements, the accompanying management's discussion and analysis, as well as the associated CEO and CFO certifications for the year ended January 31, 2019, due June 1, 2020.
In seeking this Exemption, the Company would like to advise that to the best of its knowledge there are no material developments that have not been disclosed and that effective June 1, 2020 (the date upon which the Exemption takes effect), management and other insiders are subject to an insider trading black-out that reflects the principles in section 9 of National Policy 11-207 Failure-to-File Cease Trade Orders and Revocations in multiple jurisdictions, during this Exemption period.
