VANCOUVER, CANADA - TheNewswire - May 26, 2019 - Sitka Gold Corp. (“Sitka” or the “Company”) (CSE:SIG) (CNSX:SIG.CN) (OTC:SITKF) (FSE:1RF) announces that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) for total gross proceeds of $1,188,389.88  through the issuance of 13,204,332 units (the “Units”) at a price of  $0.09 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant will entitle the holder to purchase an additional common share at a price of $0.14 for a period of 24 months from the date of closing of the Private Placement.

The financing, originally announced on May 14, 2020, was significantly oversubscribed. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Private Placement for exploration work on its Arizona, Nevada and Yukon gold properties and for general working capital.

Sitka’s chief executive officer Cor Coe commented: “We are very pleased with the high level of interest in Sitka as reflected in this oversubscribed private placement. This funding will allow us to begin our drill program at Alpha Gold, our Carlin-type gold deposit target in Nevada, while we continue through the permitting process at the Burro Creek Gold Property in Arizona and finalize our 2020 exploration plans for the RC Gold Project in the Yukon”.

In connection with the Private Placement, the Company has paid commissions totalling $39,175.19 and issued 435,280 finder’s warrants. Each finder’s warrant is exercisable to acquire one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.14 for 12 months from the date of closing of the Private Placement.

Pursuant to the Private Placement, Donald Penner, President and a director of the Company, acquired 50,000 Units; Corwin Coe, CEO and a director of the Company, acquired 150,000 Units; and Ryan Coe, a director of the Company, acquired 100,000 Units (together the “Insiders”). Insider participation in the Private Placement totalled 300,000 Units. The Insiders’ participation is considered to be “related party transactions” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”). The transactions are exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the securities to be distributed in the Private Placement nor the consideration to be received for those securities, in so far as the Private Placement involves the Insiders, exceeds 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
