AM Gold Closes First Tranche Of Private Placement For Gross Proceeds Of $3.5 Million

June 30, 2011


AM Gold Inc. (TSX-V: AMG; Frankfurt: AMX) (“AM Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that further to its news releases of June 14, 2011 and June 29, 2011 announcing a brokered private placement (the “Brokered Offering”) and a non-brokered private placement (the “Non-Brokered Offering”), the Company has closed the Brokered Offering. The Company expects that the Non-Brokered Offering will close in the week of July 4, 2011, subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.

On closing of the Brokered Offering 1,562,500 units of the Company (“Units”) were placed at a price of $0.32 per Unit and 8,571,429 flow-through common shares of the Company (the “FT Shares”) were placed at a price of $0.35 per FT Share for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $3,500,000. Each Unit consists of one non-flow-through common share of the Company (a “Share”) and one-half of a common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each whole Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company (the “Warrant Share”) at a price of $0.40 per Warrant Share until December 30, 2012, subject to acceleration in certain events.

Pursuant to the terms of the Brokered Offering if the Shares close for 20 consecutive trading days at a volume weighted average trading price above $0.75, the Company will have the right to require conversion of the Warrants at the exercise price therefor by providing a notice (the “Conversion Notice”) to the Warrant holders. Upon receipt of the Conversion Notice the holder must exercise the Warrants then held in accordance with their terms within 30 days of receipt of such notification (the “Conversion Deadline”), after which Conversion Deadline any unexercised Warrants will be deemed to have expired.

Casimir Capital Ltd. (the “Agent”) acted as agent in connection with the Brokered Offering. The Agent received a commission of $210,000 representing 6% of the gross proceeds raised on the sale of the FT Shares and Units, a corporate finance fee in an amount of $13,110 and 608,035 common share purchase warrants (the “Agent’s Warrants”), being 6% of the aggregate of the total number of FT Shares and Units sold under the Brokered Offering. Each Agent’s Warrant is exercisable to acquire one non flow-through common share of the Company (an “Agent’s Warrant Share”) for a period of 18 months from the Closing Date at a price of $0.40 per Agent’s Warrant Share, subject to acceleration on the same terms as the Warrants.

All securities issued in connection with the Brokered Offering are subject to a statutory hold period expiring on October 31, 2011.

The gross proceeds from the sale of the FT Shares will be used by the Company to incur Canadian Exploration Expenses (“CEE”) (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the “ITA”)), which will qualify as “flow-through mining expenditures” for the purposes of the ITA, related to the exploration of the Company’s Red Mountain gold project in the Yukon Territory, Canada. The proceeds from the sale of the Non-Brokered Units will be used to fund the continued exploration of the Company’s Red Mountain gold project in Yukon Territory, Canada, the continued exploration and development of the Company’s Pinaya gold-copper project in southern Peru and for general working capital purposes.
