Toronto, Canada – February 24, 2014 – Savary Gold Corp. (TSX-V: SCA) has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement financing for total gross proceeds of $1,350,000 pursuant to which Savary has issued 27,000,000 Units at a price of $0.05 per Unit (the “Offering”). Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.07 per common share until February 24, 2017.
Savary plans to use the proceeds from the financing to fund an approximately $1.1 million drill program on the Houndé South project in Burkina Faso and for general corporate purposes.
The common shares and the common shares issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants are subject to a four month and one day hold period under applicable Canadian securities laws. Closing of the Offering remains subject to receipt of all applicable regulatory approvals, including final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Don Dudek, President and CEO stated “The response to Savary’s exploration plan and marketing have been excellent. We have a strong story, which additional groups will now follow. Our plan is to commence drilling at the beginning of March with a focus on the felsic intrusion-hosted Karangosso zone where previous drilling, in two reverse circulation holes, returned 10.14 g/t gold over 10.0 metres, 5.77 g/t gold over 8.0 metres and 1.82 g/t gold over 7.0 metres.”
In connection with the Offering, Savary will pay cash finders’ fees totaling approximately $22,000.
