Goldrich Announces Closing of Private Placement Financing

SPOKANE, WA--(Marketwire - Aug 1, 2011) - Goldrich Mining Company (OTCBB: GRMC) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the close of a private placement of shares of its common stock and warrants to purchase shares of its common stock. The private placement resulted in net proceeds of $2.9 million. The proceeds of the private placement are anticipated to be used to complete the financing for the Company's 2011 hard-rock drilling gold exploration program at its Chandalar property in Alaska, completely satisfy the Company's notes payable in gold of approximately $960,000, repay a related party account payable of approximately $263,000 and fund general operating expenses.

The Company closed on a sale of 13.8 million 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 J warrant and one half of a Series I warrant. Each full Series J warrant is exercisable for a period of five years following the date of issue to purchase one additional share of common stock of the Company at the greater of $0.30 or the closing market price of the Company's stock on the closing date of the private placement, as quoted on the Over-The-Counter Bulletin Board (the "OTCBB"). Each full Series I warrant is exercisable for a period of five years following the date of issue to purchase one additional common share of the Company at $0.40.

The terms of the private placement include a call option for the Company. In the event that the shares of common stock trade at a weighted volume average price of greater than $0.50 or $0.60, respectively for the J 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.
