Bravada Closes Final Tranche of its Units Offering to Existing Shareholders; Baxter Drill Permit Issued

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Oct. 29, 2015) - Bravada Gold Corporation (the "Company" or "Bravada") (TSX VENTURE:BVA)(FRANKFURT:BRT) has closed the second and final Tranche of its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the "Offering") by issuing 2,250,000 Units for a total of CDN$67,500. Proceeds were mainly utilized towards partial payments on accrued accounts and for general working capital.

The previously announced non-brokered offering (August 21, 2015) consisted of 6,666,667 units of the Company ("Units") at a price of CDN$0.03 per Unit to raise $200,000. Each Unit consists of one common share without par value in the capital of the Company (a "Share") and one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Share at a price of CDN$0.05 per Share for 5 years. The offering was slightly oversubscribed resulting in the issuance of 6,774,998 Units to raise $203,250.

The Offering was made in accordance with the provisions of BC Instrument 45-534 - Exemption from prospectus requirement for certain trades to existing security holders and in accordance with the provisions of various corresponding blanket orders and rules of other Canadian jurisdictions that have adopted the same or a similar exemption from prospectus requirement.

No Registration in the United States

The securities described above have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), or the securities laws of any state of the United States, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, any U.S. Person (as defined in Regulation S of the Securities Act) or person in the United States, unless an exemption from such registration requirements is available. Certain shareholders in the United States were permitted to participate in the Offering upon verification by the Company that such shareholders are accredited investors (as defined in Regulation D of the Securities Act).

Baxter Project Update

Kinross Gold Corporation ("Kinross") has notified Bravada that it has received drill permits from the Bureau of Land Management for 14 drill sites at the Baxter property. The drill targets are based on extensive work completed by Kinross this past summer, which included mapping, rock-chip and soil sampling over the expanded claim block, conducting detailed ground gravity and air-borne magnetics/radiometrics over the entire claim block, and conducting mineralogy studies to identify clay and other alteration products in surface and drill chips. Five samples contain 10.1 to 43.7g/t Au of the 92 samples of vein, dump material, and wall rock that were collected. The remaining samples assay in the range of less than detection limit to 7.8g/t Au. Drilling is anticipated early in 2016.

The Baxter property consists of 240 unpatented lode claims (~1,940 hectares) in the Walker Lane Gold trend of western Nevada. Bravada previously demonstrated extensive low-sulfidation gold and silver mineralization at surface and in relatively shallow reverse-circulation drill holes.

Kinross has the option to earn a 60% interest in the property by spending $2.0 million over five years and it can earn an additional 15% interest by spending an additional $2 million on exploration and development expenses over two additional years. Upon Kinross completing its earn-in, Bravada may contribute to expenditures at its percentage of interest or be diluted. Should Bravada's working interest reduce below 10%, Bravada would convert its working interest to a 1% NSR royalty (see NR-01-15 dated February 3, 2015).

Bravada holds a portfolio of high-quality properties in Nevada, one of the world's best mining jurisdictions, and has attracted partners to fund exploration and development on five of its 15 Nevada properties. Bravada's Wind Mountain project hosts a significant Indicated and Inferred resource of gold and silver, and has exciting potential for new discoveries. The five currently partner-funded projects in aggregate include earn-in work expenditures of up to $6.5 million and payments to Bravada of up to $3+ million as cash and shares, with Bravada retaining residual working or royalty interests.
