Evergold Corp. (TSX-V: EVER) (OTC: EVGUF) (FRA: 5EG) is pleased to announce the Company has completed the first tranche of its previously announced (see news, August 28) non-brokered private placement, which was primarily targeted at hard dollar investors, and exceeded it’s targeted sale of hard dollar units. Because most institutional flow-through funds have depleted their capital by September, and several of these funds have indicated a desire to invest in the Company upon replenishing their reserves in early October, the Company intends to complete a second tranche involving several of these funds, thereafter. Prior to completing this second tranche, the Company will first receive back from the lab, evaluate, and then release assay results for the recently completed Phase 1 drill program at the Company’s Golden Lion project, and any remaining significant assay results from its recently completed Phase 1 drill program at the Company’s Snoball project.
The First Tranche targeted the sale of a minimum $1 million in hard dollar units. It closed with the sale of 2,173,600 hard dollar units to a fund and retail investors for gross hard dollar proceeds of $1,086,800, plus the sale of 325,000 flow-through shares, all to retail investors, for gross flow-through proceeds of $195,000. Gross proceeds, hard dollars and flow-through combined, amounted to $1,281,800. It is expected that the second and final tranche will close in the near future.
“We are pleased to have exceeded our hard dollar objectives, and to have received guidance from several major funds that they wish to invest in our second tranche, subject to terms,” said Kevin Keough, President & CEO. “In the near term we will focus on the exciting work of assessing and releasing assay results from drilling at our GL1 “Main” prospect. On September 9 we completed an extensive induced polarization (“IP”) geophysical survey over the target area which defined a resistivity and chargeability anomaly encompassing hundreds of metres of strike length, broad widths, and untested down-dip potential. The significance of these geophysical results is that the target is now considerably larger than previously understood, and drilling to date appears to be only testing its edge. We look forward to integrating the pending drill assay results with the new geophysical data as we plan for a Phase 2 follow-up drill program in the next (2020) field season.”

Evergold Corp. has been assembled by a team with a record of recent success in British Columbia, combining four 100%-owned properties in prime geological real estate from one of BC’s best-known geologists, C.J. (Charlie) Greig, with seasoned management and a qualified board. The Company’s flagship assets consist of the 3,545 hectare Snoball property, located in the heart of BC’s famed Golden Triangle only 12 kilometres off highway 37, where the Company believes it has located the source of a large, strong gold-silver anomaly up-slope of previous work, and the 5,099 hectare Golden Lion property, located well to the east of Snoball in similar Stikine terrane rocks, at the north end of the Toodoggone region, where multiple strong gold-silver-copper targets have been outlined.
