AM Gold Inc. (TSX-V: AMG; Frankfurt: AMX) (“AM Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that further to its news releases of April 5, 2012 and April 19, 2012 announcing a private placement (the “Offering”), the Company has closed the Offering.
On closing of the Offering, 5,000,000 units of the Company (the “Units”) were placed at a price of $0.09 per Unit for gross proceeds of $450,000. Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one-half of a Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.20 until April 30, 2014 subject to the acceleration provision described below. The Units were made available by way of prospectus exemptions in Canada and in such other jurisdictions as the Company has agreed where the Units can be issued on a private placement basis, exempt from any prospectus, registration or other similar requirements.
Pursuant to the terms of the Offering the Company will be entitled to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is 30 days following the date the Company issues a news release announcing that the closing price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) has been equal or greater than $0.35 for any five consecutive trading days after the hold period on the Common Shares has expired.
The Company paid finder’s fees to arm’s length parties (the “Finders”) in connection with the Offering consisting of (i) cash commissions totaling $16,959.60 representing 8% of the gross proceeds raised on the sale of the Units placed by the Finders and (ii) 188,440 common share purchase warrants (the “Finder’s Warrants”), representing 8% of the number of Units placed by the Finders. Each Finder’s Warrant is exercisable to acquire one common share of the Company (a “Finder’s Warrant Share”) at a price of $0.20 per Finder’s Warrant Share until April 30, 2014, subject to acceleration on the same terms as the Warrants.

Proceeds from the Offering will be used to fund the continued exploration and development of the Pinaya gold-copper project in southern Peru, the continued exploration of the Red Mountain gold project in Yukon Territory, Canada, and for general working capital purposes.
The Company also announces that following closing of the Offering the Board of Directors accepted the resignation of Dr. E. Kelly Hyslop as a Director but will remain with the Company in an advisory role. Dr. Hyslop is currently a director of American Vanadium Corp. and recently accepted a position as Chairman of Advanced Proteome Therapeutics Corporation. Due to time constraints regarding these additional commitments, Dr. Hyslop will be unable to dedicate the necessary time required as a member of the Board of Directors of AM Gold. Dr. Hyslop commented, “I have enjoyed working with AM Gold and its Board of Directors and wish the Company all the best for the future.” The Company would like to thank Dr. Hyslop for his service to the Company. The Company has elected not to fill the vacancy on the Board of Directors at this time.
