March 18, 2024, Vancouver, BC Barsele Minerals Corp. (the “Company” or “Barsele”) (TSX.V: BME, OTC: BRSLF) is pleased to announce that the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) has approved the Company’s application to change the name of the Company to “First Nordic Metals Corp.” with the trading symbol “FNM”. Furthermore, it is also expected that the Company’s shares will trade under the new symbol “FNMCF” on the OTCQB. Trading in the common shares of the Company under the new name and symbol on the TSXV will commence at market open on March 20, 2024.

Taj Singh President and CEO commented, “The Barsele / Gold Line merger, which closed a few weeks ago, created a combined company with a leading gold portfolio underpinned by the advanced stage Barsele gold project and one of the largest consolidated gold exploration portfolios in Scandinavia, both in Sweden and in Finland. The flagship of the portfolio is the ~100,000-hectare district-scale position in Sweden covering almost the entire Gold Line belt and a significant portion of the Skellefte VMS (volcanogenic massive sulphide) belt and covering a +100km belt position of regional first-order structural corridors. These belts have been hosts to multiple +1Moz gold deposits, including the 4.2Moz Boliden Mine, as well as numerous base metal deposits of significant scale. The current name change to “First Nordic Metals Corp.” reflects a new beginning for the recently combined companies and is obviously well-suited as we look to becoming a leading Scandinavian-focused explorer and project developer.”

There is no change in the capitalization of the Company in connection with the change of name and new trading symbol. No action is required by existing shareholders of the Company with respect to the name change and new trading symbol. Outstanding common shares certificates or DRS notices do not need to be exchanged. The Company’s new CUSIP number is 33583M107 and its new ISIN number is CA33583M1077.

In connection with its name change, the Company will be launching its new website at www.FNMetals.com which will go live early April 2024.
