Altaley Mining Corporation (the “Company” or “Altaley”) announces that it has amended a marketing agreement (“Agreement”) with Peak Investor Marketing (“Peak”) originally dated December 3, 2021. By mutual agreement Altaley and Peak suspended the Agreement effective September 23, 2022. At that time a total of C$36,000 of past due fees were outstanding and payable to Peak by Altaley.
On January 5, 2023, by mutual agreement the suspension of the Agreement was lifted and would continue on a month-to-month basis. It was agreed that the outstanding debt of C$36,000 would be paid to Peak on the following payment schedule:
Altaley also agrees to grant Peak a total of 100,000 incentive stock options (the “Peak Options”) exercisable at the closing price on the date of grant which will be following TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) approval. The Peak Options are issued in accordance with the terms of the Company’s Incentive Stock Option Plan (the “Plan”) and TSXV Policy 4.4, and are subject to the approval of the TSXV. The Peak Options vest in four stages over a period of 12 months, with ¼ of the Peak Options vesting three months after the grant date and every three months thereafter. The Peak Options will expire ninety days after the termination of the Agreement.
Altaley Mining Corporation is a Canadian based mining company with two 100% owned Mexican gold, silver, and base metal mining projects.
Altaley’s Tahuehueto Gold Mine Project is in north-western Durango State, Mexico, where construction of an initial 500 tonnes per day (“tpd”) operation is well advanced. The second stage, the nameplate 1000 tpd project, will follow during 2023. The operation is generating gold, silver, lead, and zinc in concentrates.
Campo Morado is an operating polymetallic base and precious metals mine currently producing zinc and copper concentrates at an average of 2400 tpd and is progressively increasing its copper-silver revenues.

Cautionary Note Regarding Production Decisions and Forward-Looking Statements
It should be noted that Altaley declared commercial production at Campo Morado and elected to initiate construction to go into production at Tahuehueto prior to completing full feasibility studies demonstrating economic and technical viability. Accordingly, readers should be cautioned that Altaley’s production decisions have been made without comprehensive feasibility studies of established reserves at Campo Morado and prefeasibility level reserves at Tahuehueto, such that there is greater risk and uncertainty as to future economic results from the Campo Morado mine and at Tahuehueto mine where reserves are established to the prefeasibility level of confidence and therefore a higher technical risk of failure than would be the case if full feasibility studies were completed and relied upon to make production decisions. Altaley has completed a preliminary economic assessment (“PEA”) mining study on the Campo Morado mine and a prefeasibility study (“PFS”) at Tahuehueto mine that provides a conceptual life of mine plan and a preliminary economic analysis based on the previously identified mineral resources (see News Release dated November 8, 2017, April 4, 2018, and April 25, 2022).
