Goldrich Announces Closing of Private Placement Financing

SPOKANE, WA--(Marketwire - May 31, 2011) - Goldrich Mining Company (OTCBB: GRMC) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the closing of a private placement of its common stock and warrants to purchase shares of its common stock. The private placement was oversubscribed and resulted in gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $2,070,000. The proceeds of the private placement will be used to finance the Company's 2011 hard-rock drilling gold exploration program at its Chandalar property in Alaska and general operating expenses.

Of the total issuance, officers and directors of the Company purchased 695,000 units, contributing $145,850 of the total proceeds of the private placement. Such units were purchased on the same terms and conditions as the purchase of units by other investors in the private placement.

William Schara, President and CEO of Goldrich, commented, "We are excited to start our hard-rock drilling program. We already have the drill on site and should be able to start drilling in the later part of June."

Pursuant to the private placement, the Company sold 9,859,284 units at a price of $0.21 per unit. Each unit consists of one share of the Company's common stock, one half of a Series H warrant and one half of a Series I warrant. Each full Series H warrant and Series I warrant is exercisable to purchase one additional common share of the Company at $0.30 and $0.40, respectively, for a period of five years following the date of issue.

The terms of the private placement include a call option for the Company. In the event that the common shares trade at a weighted volume average price of greater than $0.50 or $0.60, respectively for the H warrants and I warrants, for a period of 20 consecutive trading days at any time following the issuance of the respective warrants, the Company may, in its sole discretion, accelerate the expiration date of the respective warrants by giving written notice to the holders thereof within 10 business days of the occurrence thereof, and in such case, the warrants will expire on the 20th business day after the date on which such notice is given by the Company. The Company granted resale registration rights to such investors.

None of the common stock or warrants were registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), or any state securities law.
