Savary Gold Launches $1 Million Back Stopped Financing


Toronto, Canada – May 15, 2013 – Savary Gold Corp. (TSX-V: SCA) has launched a private placement financing for total gross proceeds of $1,000,200 at a price of $0.06 per common share. Forbes & Manhattan, Inc. has committed to back stop and guarantee the financing.

The proceeds from the financing will be used to fund the continued exploration of the Houndé South project in Burkina Faso and for general corporate purposes.

All securities issued by Savary will be subject to a hold period of four months and one day. The financing is subject to a number of conditions, including, without limitation, execution of definitive agreements and receipt of all regulatory approvals.

Upon the closing of the Offering, Savary may pay fees to eligible finders in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange in cash, warrants or any combination thereof.
