Batero Gold Corp. ("the Company") (TSX VENTURE:BAT) wishes to announce that in order to satisfy additional demand it has increased the size of its special warrant financing, previously announced on April 11, 2012, to up to 9,802,000 Special Warrants (the "Special Warrants") for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $6,371,300 (the "Offering"). As previously announced, each Special Warrant will be issued at a subscription price of C$0.65 per Special Warrant (the "Issue Price"). The Company has been informed by the co-lead agents, Raymond James Ltd. and Cormark Securities Inc., that the books are now closed.

Each Special Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire, upon exercise and for no additional consideration, one unit (a "Unit"), consisting of one common share ("Common Share") in the capital of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant shall entitle the holder to acquire an additional Common Share at C$0.90 during the period ending 24 months following the closing of the Offering.

The Offering is scheduled to close on or about April 26, 2012 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, and other securities regulatory authorities as applicable.
