("Copper North") (TSX-V: COL) has been called for January 29, 2020. The Meeting has been called by H. Coyne & Sons Ltd., a concerned shareholder of Copper North (the "Concerned Shareholder"). A Notice of Special Meeting was filed on Copper North's SEDAR profile (at www.sedar.com) on November 29, 2019, confirming a record date of December 5, 2019 and setting out certain other details.
As noted in the news release of Copper North dated November 12, 2019, the Concerned Shareholder provided a shareholder meeting requisition notice (the "Requisition") dated November 6, 2019.

Under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia), the directors of Copper North had 21 days after the date on which the Requisition was received to call a meeting of shareholders to transact the business stated in the Requisition, failing which the Concerned Shareholder would be permitted to send notice of a meeting to transact the business set out in the Requisition. The directors of Copper North did not call the meeting, nor did they provide any response to the Requisition. Accordingly, the Concerned Shareholder called the meeting and provided Notice of the Meeting as set forth herein.
