Skygold Arranges Private Placement

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 8, 2009) - Skygold Ventures Ltd. ("Skygold" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SKV) is pleased to announce it has arranged a non-brokered private placement of 6,100,000 "flow-through" common share units ("FT Units") at a price of $0.33 per FT Unit for gross proceeds of $2,013,000.

Each FT Unit will consist of one common share issued on a flow-through basis and one share purchase warrant (a "Warrant") of the Company. Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one (non-flow-through) common share for a period of three years from closing at a price of $0.33 per share.

The proceeds received from the sale of the FT Units will be used to fund programs on the Company's Spanish Mountain and Spanish Creek properties that qualify as Canadian exploration expenses (as defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada)). A cash finders' fee of 6% will be payable to Wellington West Capital Markets Inc. on closing. All of the securities issued in connection with the private placement will be subject to a four month hold period. The closing of the private placement is subject to the acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.
