NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
Medgold Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MED) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it proposes to arrange, subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval, a non-brokered private placement financing of up to 5.0 million units at $0.10 per unit, for proceeds of up to $500,000. Each unit will consist of one common share and one warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at $0.15 for two years from closing. The Company may pay a cash finder's fee on a portion of the financing.
The net proceeds of the placement will be used towards exploration of the Company's properties in Europe and for general working capital purposes.
The Company also announces that its Board of Directors has determined that it is in the best interests of the Company to extend the expiry date of certain previously issued private placement warrants. Accordingly, subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance, the expiry date of outstanding warrants to purchase a total of 2,272,728 common shares at $0.16 per share will be extended by one year to February 17, 2017.
