Steppe Gold Ltd. (TSX: STGO) is pleased to announce that the previously announced C$15 million investment in the Company by Mr. Eric Sprott has been completed.


Mr. Sprott, through 2176423 Ontario Ltd., a corporation beneficially owned by him, acquired a total of 6,976,944 units of the Company at a price of C$2.15 per unit for gross proceeds to the Company of C$15,000,429. Each unit is comprised of one common share of the company and one common share purchase warrant, with each warrant entitling the holder to acquire one additional common share at a price C$3.00 per share for a period of 24 months from the closing date.


The net proceeds of the investment will be used by the Company to advance their exploration and development projects as well as for working capital and general corporate purposes.


Steppe Gold CEO, Mr Bataa Tumur-Ochir commented, “We are very happy to receive further foreign investment into Mongolia and into Steppe Gold as one of the world’s newest gold producers. This investment from Eric Sprott is a great endorsement of our team and our assets and allows us to accelerate our exploration programs as well as production expansion initiatives.”


Mr. Eric Sprott commented, “This first investment into Steppe Gold is very exciting. I am encouraged by how the team has demonstrated strong execution capabilities by bringing high-margin gold production online and can continue to expand their production while further exploring their two exciting gold and silver licenses.”


All securities to be issued pursuant to the investment will be subject to a four month hold period from the closing date under applicable securities laws in Canada. The Company is paying finder’s fees of C$600,000 in connection with the investment.


Prior to the above acquisition, Mr. Sprott did not beneficially own or control any securities of the Company.
