NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION, DISTRIBUTION OR DISSEMINATION DIRECTLY, OR INDIRECTLY, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES
Toronto, Ontario -- August 28, 2020 -- Evergold Corp. ("Evergold" or the "Company") (TSX-V: EVER, OTC: EVGUF, FRA: 5EG) is pleased to announce, further to shareholder inquiries, that it has amended the $3.5 million non-brokered private placement financing (the “Offering”) announced on August 26, 2020, to allow for participation by existing shareholders under the “Existing Shareholder Exemption” as described below. The Company also announces a change in price of the flow-through shares (“FT Shares”) component of the Offering to $0.60 per FT Share.
“We’re happy to extend the Offering to existing shareholders using this mechanism, as it makes the financing more democratic,” said Kevin Keough, President and CEO. “We appreciate their continued support.”
The Offering is composed of hard dollar units (“HD Units”) at a price of $0.50 per Unit and flow-through shares (“FT Shares”) at a price of $0.60 per FT Share. Each HD Unit is composed of one common share in the capital of the Company (“Common Share”) and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (“Warrant”). Each whole Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share within 24 months from the date of issuance at a price of $0.60 per Common Share if exercised in the first 12 months and $0.70 per Common Share if exercised in the second 12 months. Each FT Share is composed of one Common Share issued on a flow-through basis within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the “Tax Act”).
The Offering is available to accredited investors as well as to all shareholders of record of the Company as at August 26, 2020 (the "Record Date") resident in Canada who are eligible to participate under the exemption from prospectus requirements set out in applicable instruments of Canadian Securities Administrators (the “Existing Shareholder Exemption”) and who continue be shareholders of the Company immediately prior to the closing of the Offering.
Subscribers proposing to purchase HD Units or FT Shares under the Existing Shareholder Exemption may not purchase more than $15,000 in value of securities pursuant to the exemption in any twelve month period unless such subscriber has obtained 'suitability advice' from a registered investment dealer, as such term is used in applicable instruments of Canadian Securities Administrators.
If the Offering is over-subscribed, it is possible that a shareholder's subscription may not be accepted by the Company even though it is received. Additionally, in the event of an imbalance of large subscriptions compared to smaller subscriptions management of the Company reserves the right in its discretion to reduce large subscriptions in favour of smaller shareholder subscriptions. There is no minimum amount that will be required to be raised pursuant to the Existing Shareholder Exemption portion of the Offering.
Any person who becomes a shareholder of the Company after the Record Date is not permitted to participate in the Offering using the Existing Shareholder Exemption but other exemptions may still be available to them. Shareholders who became shareholders after the Record Date should consult their professional advisors when completing their subscription form to ensure that they use the correct exemption.
Those interested in participating in the Offering should contact the Company as noted below. Information on the Company is reported in the Company’s public documents filed on SEDAR. There are no undisclosed material facts or material changes in respect of the Company.

Evergold Corp. has been assembled by a team with a record of recent success in British Columbia, combining four 100%-owned properties in prime geological real estate from one of BC’s best-known geologists, C.J. (Charlie) Greig, with seasoned management and a qualified board. The Company’s flagship assets consist of the 3,545 hectare Snoball property, located in the heart of BC’s famed Golden Triangle only 12 kilometres off highway 37, where the Company believes it has located the source of a large, strong gold-silver anomaly up-slope of previous work, and the 5,099 hectare Golden Lion property, located well to the east of Snoball in similar Stikine terrane rocks, at the north end of the Toodoggone region, where multiple strong gold-silver-copper targets have been outlined.
