Will oil pan seal with one broken oil pan bolt?

I know this topic has been covered, but I did a search and can't find an answer specific to my question. I have a SBC with one oil pan bolt in center of one long side that has a broken easy out, and I've given up trying to get it out. This is a budget build, mild 327. I have a new stock steel oil pan that I will be using. If I bridge the broken bolt hole with a reinforcment plate made of, say 3/16" steel, that fits on top of the pan rail, will this be enough to keep it from leaking? Any other thoughts? Thanks.
