DESERT MOUNTAIN ENERGY ANNOUNCES PRIVATE PLACEMENT

Vancouver, British Columbia — DESERT MOUNTAIN ENERGY CORP. (the “Company”) (TSX.V: DME, U.S. OTC: DMEHF, Frankfurt: QM01) is pleased to announce that it is proceeding with a non-brokered private placement offering to raise up to CAD $4.0 Million.  Under the terms of the private placement, the company will offer for sale up to 2,500,000 units (the “Units”) at CAD $1.60 per unit.  This offering is in addition to the previously announced non-brokered private placement that was announced on September 11, 2020 for up to 5,625,000 units.  This placement is as a result of strong interest from potential investors in the previously announced private placement.

The Company may, in its discretion, pay a finder’s fee in cash or warrants of up to 7% and finder’s warrants 7% of the total gross proceeds of the offering in units, where applicable.  The Units will be subject to a 4-month hold period.  The Company anticipates closing the private placement prior to October 15, 2020, subject to adjustment if deemed appropriate.  The Company has engaged Cormark Securities Inc. as its financial advisor in connection with this transaction.  The private placement is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
