Outcrop Gold Corp. (TSX-V: OCG) is pleased to announce that following the release of favorable drill results from its Santa Ana project that Eric Sprott has taken a stake in the Company through a non-brokered private placement financing, consisting of 10,000,000 units at a price of $0.10 per Unit for gross proceeds of $1,000,000. Each Unit consists of one common share and one common share purchase warrant in the capital of the Company. Each Warrant is exercisable into one common share of the Company at a price of $0.20 per common share expiring on November 7, 2024.
