VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 24, 2014) - Granite Creek Gold Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:GCX) announces that the Board of Directors of the Company have approved a consolidation of its common shares on the basis of one (1) new post-consolidation common share for every four (4) pre-consolidation common shares. The Company proposes this consolidation in order to facilitate future financings and acquisitions. A name change is not intended as part of the consolidation, and it is subject to acceptance for filing by the TSX Venture Exchange.

There are presently 23,392,066 common shares issued and outstanding in the capital of the Company and, following the proposed share consolidation, there will be approximately 5,848,017 common shares issued and outstanding.

The Company also wishes to announce that upon acceptance of the consolidation, it intends to complete a private placement of up to 2 million units at a price of $0.05 per unit for gross proceeds of approximately $100,000. Each unit will consist of one post-consolidation common share and one-half of a transferrable common share purchase warrant.

The terms and completion of the private placement are subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval. The Company may pay finder's fees in connection with the private placement.
