North Vancouver, British Columbia(Newsfile Corp. - December 6, 2019) -
Lion One Metals Limited (TSXV: LIO) (OTCQX: LOMLF) (ASX: LLO) ("*Lion One*"
or the "*Company*") is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously
announced brokered private placement of units (the "*Units*"), including the
exercise of the agents' over-allotment option in full, for gross proceeds of
C$11,500,000 (the "*Private Placement*"). The Private Placement was
completed on a best-effort agency basis through Echelon Wealth Partners Inc.
and Eight Capital as co-lead agents and joint bookrunners on behalf of a
syndicate of agents including Scarsdale Equities LLC and Red Cloud
Securities (collectively, the "*Agents*").

Walter Berukoff, Lion One's Chief Executive Officer, stated "The Company is
very pleased with the outcome of the Private Placement, including the
exercise in full of the Agents' over-allotment option. The Company is now
well capitalized to continue our exploration work on the Navilawa alkaline
gold system to expand the Tuvatu project while simultaneously advancing
development planning for the Tuvatu project. With drilling ongoing and
strong support from the capital markets Lion One is positioned for further
success in 2020."

Pursuant to the Private Placement, the Company issued a total of 14,375,000
Units at a price of $0.80 per Unit (the "*Issue Price*"). Each Unit consists
of one common share and one common share purchase warrant (the "*Warrants*")
in the Company. Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one
additional common share of the Company at a price of $1.20 at any time until
June 6, 2021, subject to an accelerated expiry option whereby the Company
can trigger an accelerated 30-day expiry of the Warrants if the closing
price of the Company's common shares listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (the
"*TSX-V*") remains equal to or higher than $1.65 for 20 consecutive trading
days. On the 20th consecutive trading day above $1.65 (the "*Acceleration
Trigger Date*"), the Warrant expiry date may be accelerated to 30 trading
days after the Acceleration Trigger Date by the issuance of a news release
announcing such acceleration, within two trading days of the Acceleration
Trigger Date.

In consideration for their services, the Agents will receive a cash
commission equal to 6.0% of the gross proceeds of the Private Placement
(including the Agent's Option) which shall be payable on the closing date of
the Private Placement, and that number of broker warrants ("*Broker
Warrants*") equal to 6.0% of the number of Units sold pursuant to the
Private Placement (including the Agent's Option).

The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to fund the
exploration and development of the Company's 100% owned and fully permitted
high grade Tuvatu Gold Project, and for working capital purposes. All
securities issued under this financing are subject to a hold period expiring
on April 7, 2020 in accordance with applicable securities laws and policies
of the TSX-V.
