VANCOUVER, BC, Oct. 13, 2021 /CNW/ – Mako Mining Corp. (TSXV: MKO) (OTCQX: MAKOF) (“Mako” or the “Company“) announces that the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV“) has accepted its normal course issuer bid (the “NCIB“) to purchase up to an aggregate of 32,965,449 common shares (“Common Shares“) of the Company, representing 5% of the 659,308,984 Common Shares issued and outstanding on the date hereof.

Purchases under the NCIB may be commence on October 19, 2021, and will end no later than October 18, 2022. The Common Shares will be purchased for cancellation through the facilities of the TSXV in accordance with its policies and at market price.  Mako has retained PI Financial Corp. to make purchases on its behalf under the NCIB.

The Board of Directors and senior management of the Company believe that its Common Shares have been trading in a price range that does not adequately reflect their value in relation to the Company’s business and future business prospects.  The repurchase of the Company’s Common Shares therefore is a prudent use of funds and in the best interests of Mako and its shareholders.

On behalf of the Board,

Akiba Leisman
Chief Executive Officer
