Goldrich Announces Closing on Private Placement Financing

SPOKANE, WA--(Marketwire - October 19, 2010) -  Goldrich Mining Company (OTCBB: GRMC) (the "Company") announces it has closed on a private placement of its common stock and warrants, with the proceeds used to finance gold production at its Chandalar property in Alaska.

The Company closed on a sale of 4,105,998 units at a price of $0.30 per unit, each unit consisting of one share of the Company's common stock and one half of a warrant, with each full warrant exercisable to purchase one additional common share at $0.55 for a period of two years following the date of issue. The private placement resulted in net proceeds of $1,231,780 to the Company. Of the total, 3,635,998 units were issued in the first two quarters of 2010, with net proceeds of $1,090,800. The proceeds of the private placement were used to fund the Company's mining operations at its Chandalar gold mine in Alaska.

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 $0.80 per share for a period of 20 consecutive trading days at any time following the issuance of the warrants, the Company may, in its sole discretion, accelerate the expiration date of the 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.

William Schara, President and CEO of Goldrich, comments, "This financing was key to our 2010 mining season. Additionally, as discussed in our most recent SEC filings, we received another $625,037 in financing during 2010 by entering into notes payable in gold from our 2010 processing season. The combination of these two sources of cash enabled us to purchase $1,238,050 in equipment to undertake our first significant step into gold production at our Chandalar property."

Goldrich Mining Company is engaged in the business of the discovery and mining of gold deposits. This endeavor carries certain risks that are commensurate with the potential rewards of such efforts. These risks cannot be quantified and should not be taken lightly.
