VANCOUVER, CANADA – October 31st, 2019: Sitka Gold Corp. (“Sitka” or the “Company”) (CSE: SIG; FSE: 1RF) announces that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) for total gross proceeds of $1,102,271.94 through the issuance of 10,020,654 units (the “Units”) at a price of $0.11 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a “Warrant”). Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase an additional common share at a price of $0.16 for a period of 2 years from the date of issuance.
Net proceeds from the financing will be used to conduct drill programs at the Company’s Burro Creek Gold property in Arizona and its Alpha Gold property in Nevada and for general working capital.
CEO and Director of Sitka Gold, Cor Coe (P.Geo), commented, “We are excited to have this significant financing closed. This new capital enables us to proceed with our much anticipated drilling program to update and potentially expand the historical gold and silver mineral resource estimate at Burro Creek. The historical resource estimate includes bonanza grade drill core intercepts such as 15.1 feet of 7.99 g/t gold and 192.72 g/t silver, including 3.4 feet of 31.80 g/t gold and 759.00 g/t silver*. We are also very excited to drill test our Carlin-type gold deposit target at Alpha Gold in the heart of the Carlin District in Nevada”.
