TORONTO, June 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Gowest Gold Ltd. (“Gowest” or the “Corporation”) (TSXV:GWA) announced today the pricing details of its proposed non-brokered private placement previously announced by the Corporation on April 30, 2018 (the “Offering”).

In connection with the Offering, it is anticipated that the Corporation will issue common share units at a price of $0.07 per unit and flow-through units at a price of $0.08 per unit for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $5,000,000. Each common share unit will be comprised of one common share in the capital of the Corporation and one half (1/2) of a common share purchase warrant (“Warrant”). Each flow-through unit will be comprised of one common share in the capital of the Corporation to be issued on a “flow through” basis pursuant to the Income Tax Act (Canada) and one half (1/2) of a Warrant. Each Warrant will entitle its holder to purchase one common share in the capital of the Company at an exercise price of $0.15 per share for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance.  The Offering may be closed in one or more tranches and is subject to requisite approval from the TSX Venture Exchange.

One or more insiders of the Company may participate in the Offering.  By virtue of such participation by the insider(s), the Offering would constitute a “related party transaction” within the meaning of the TSXV Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”). The Company intends to rely on the exemptions from the requirements of MI 61-101 in respect of any insider participation in the Offering.

The proceeds of the Offering will be used by the Corporation for working capital purposes and for the continued development of the Company’s 100% owned Bradshaw Gold Deposit, located in the Timmins Gold Camp (see Gowest’s news release dated April 16, 2018).
