August 29, 2016

AM GOLD INC. (TSX-V: AMG; Frankfurt: AMX) (“AM Gold”, or the “Company”) announces the completion of its previously announced going private transaction pursuant to which 1079170 B.C. Ltd. (the “Purchaser”), acquired all of the outstanding common shares of the Company, other than the 842,165 common shares owned by John Fiorino and his joint actor, pursuant to a statutory plan of arrangement (the “Arrangement”) and pursuant to the terms of an arrangement agreement between the Company and the Purchaser dated June 28, 2016.

The Arrangement was completed following the approval of the Supreme Court of British Columbia and the satisfaction of various conditions precedent to the Arrangement. Payment of cash consideration of $0.17 per common share for the common shares acquired pursuant to the Arrangement will be made by the Depositary, Computershare Investor Services Inc.

Registered shareholders of common shares are required to complete and sign a letter of transmittal and deliver it to the Depositary, together with any share certificates they may hold and the other required documents. Shareholders who hold their common shares through a broker or other intermediary may contact that broker or other intermediary for instructions and assistance in receiving the consideration for their respective common shares. Further information concerning these processes is outlined in the Company's management information circular dated July 21, 2016, a copy of which is available, along with the letter of transmittal, under the Company's profile at www.sedar.com.

Pursuant to the Arrangement, all of the outstanding options of the Company were surrendered and cancelled. Other than the options, the Company did not have any other dilutive securities outstanding.

Any questions regarding the cash consideration, including any request for another letter of transmittal should be directed to Computershare Investor Services Inc., at its North American toll-free number: 1-800-564-6253; or for outside North America at +1 514-982-7555 or via email to [email protected]

In connection with the completion of the Arrangement, the Company has applied to have the common shares of the Company de-listed from the TSX Venture Exchange and expects that the common shares will be delisted effective at the close of business on August 29, 2016. AM Gold will also apply to cease to be a reporting issuer under applicable Canadian securities laws.
