The Company is also pleased to announce the results of the special meeting of the Company's shareholders (the "Meeting") held on March 31, 2020.

Regency has adopted COVID-19 avoidance measures for its staff and service suppliers. Personnel are required to maintain physical distance, self-monitor and self-isolate or elect to work from home. Management has eliminated plans for a camp setup to service a planned diamond drill campaign on the Escape Lake Project north of Thunder Bay, Ontario. The Company is aware of new Thunder Bay Health Unit guidelines that provide for "mandatory" self-isolation for returning overseas and inter-provincial travel. The guidelines also "strongly recommend" self-isolation after travel into the Northwest region from other areas of the Province. Mineral Exploration and Development has been deemed an essential service in the Province of Ontario (http://www.netnewsledger.com/2020/03/23/ontario-covid-19-business-allowed-to-remain-open-list-march-23-2020/). The Company is attempting to procure the services of a locally staffed and serviced diamond drilling contractor in order to commence diamond drilling and other mineral exploration activities. Regular press release updates are planned.
