VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 17, 2011) - Dawson Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:DYU)(FRANKFURT:3DG) ("Dawson Gold" or the "Company") proposes to undertake a one-for-two share consolidation and then complete a private placement of up to 24,000,000 units of the Company at a price of $0.05 per unit. Each unit will consist of one post-consolidated share and one warrant. Each warrant will entitle the holder to acquire a further post-consolidated share at a price of $0.10 exercisable for 18 months from the issuance date. The Company will pay a finder's fee of 6% in cash or securities on all or part of the private placement. This private placement replaces the financing announced on August 16, 2011.

The private placement is subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance, and to completion of the previously announced share consolidation (news release of August 19, 2011) on the basis of two existing shares for each post-consolidated share, which was approved by the shareholders at an Extraordinary General Meeting on September 23, 2011.
