Augusta Gold Corp. (OTCQB: AUGG) (CSE: G) (FSE: 11B) is pleased to announce the closing of its previously announced non-brokered private placement of 7.56 million units at a price of C$2.25 per Unit for total gross proceeds of C$17 million.
Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company and one half of one common share purchase warrant. Each full warrant entitles the holder to acquire one Common Share for a period of three years at an exercise price of C$2.80.

Maryse Belanger, President and CEO commented: “We are very grateful for the solid support from Mr. Warke and the additional strategic investors that participated as we pursue our vision to unlock value from the Bullfrog Gold project through a systematic approach to our exploration and development program. This financing provides the funds to fully execute on our 2021 programs including undertaking a drill program in excess of 85,000 metres and de-risking the project through environmental, permitting and engineering work.”
