Royalty North Partners Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:RNP) ("RNP" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that further to its press releases dated April 12, 2017 and May 5, 2017, the Company has further increased its non-brokered private placement financing (the "Private Placement") of units (the "Units") at a price of $0.17 per Unit to approximately $3.93 million and has closed the second tranche of the Private Placement (the "Second Tranche") by issuing 6,833,437 Units for gross proceeds of approximately $1.16 million. In the aggregate, a total of 23,116,793 Units were issued pursuant to the Private Placement for gross proceeds of approximately $3.93 million.

Each Unit consisted of one common share in the capital of the Company (a "Unit Share") and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant (a "Warrant") entitles the holder to purchase, until September 1, 2021, one additional common share of the Company (a "Warrant Share") at an exercise price of $0.25. The Warrants are governed by the terms of a warrant indenture dated November 24, 2016 between the Company and TSX Trust Company as warrant agent and a supplement thereto dated May 5, 2017 (the "Warrant Indenture"). The Unit Shares, the Warrants and the Warrant Shares issued under the Second Tranche are subject to a hold period and may not be traded until September 19, 2017, except as permitted by applicable securities legislation and the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV").

Proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to repay the shareholder loans used to facilitate an early close of the transaction with SST Construction, LLC (please see the Company's press release dated May 5, 2017 for further details), for transaction expenses and for working capital purposes.

The Company will pay a commission to certain arm's length finders in connection with the Second Tranche. Each of Sprott Global Resource Investments, Ltd., Sprott Capital Partners, a division of Sprott Private Wealth LP, Canaccord Genuity Corp. and DGW Capital Corp. will receive a 6% cash commission for Units placed by them.

This press release does not constitute an offer to purchase securities. The securities offered in the Private Placement have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the benefit or account of, a U.S. person, except pursuant to an available exemption from such registration requirements.
