VANCOUVER, Dec. 8, 2017 /CNW/ - Mawson Resources Limited ("Mawson" or the "Company") (TSX:MAW) (Frankfurt:MXR) (PINKSHEETS: MWSNF) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced private placement to raise gross proceeds of $5,258,150. The Offering consisted of a brokered offering led by Haywood Securities Inc., on behalf of a syndicate of agents including Canaccord Genuity Corp., Red Cloud Klondike Strike Inc., and Eight Capital, to raise gross proceeds of $3,084,100 (the "Brokered Offering") and a concurrent non-brokered offering to raise $2,174,050 (the "Non-Brokered Offering", and together with the Brokered Offering, the "Offering").

Mawson Resources Ltd. (CNW Group/Mawson Resources Ltd.)

Pursuant to the Offering, the Company issued a total of 15,023,285 units (the "Units") at a price of C$0.35 per Unit. Each Unit is comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of C$0.50 until December 8, 2019. All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a statutory four-month hold period.

Certain directors and officers of the Company participated in the Non-Brokered Offering for $148,750

The net proceeds received by the Company from the Offering will be used for exploration on the Company's exploration properties, primarily in Finland and for working capital and general corporate purposes.
