NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Integra Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE: ICG) ("Integra Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that today it has closed its previously announced private placement with Eldorado Gold Corporation (NYSE: EGO) (TSX: ELD) ("Eldorado") whereby Eldorado has invested $14.6 million in Integra by way of a non-brokered private placement of common shares of Integra (the "Private Placement"). As a result of the Private Placement, Eldorado now holds 14.96% of Integra's issued and outstanding common shares, on an undiluted basis.

Under the terms of the agreement, Eldorado purchased 52,058,200 common shares of Integra (the "Common Shares") at a price of $0.28 per share (the "Subscription Price") for gross proceeds of $14,576,296. The Common Shares issuable pursuant to the Private Placement are subject to a statutory four-month hold period expiring January 1, 2016.

"This investment by Eldorado Gold provides Integra with the balance sheet strength to fully test the exploration potential at the Triangle Zone and other targets," commented Company President and CEO, Stephen de Jong. "We are ramping up the number of diamond drills on site now as we prepare for active fall and winter programs. Over the next few months investors can expect to see a steady flow of drill results as well as an updated resource estimate for the Triangle Zone."

The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Private Placement for the continued exploration at the Lamaque Project, with a focus on the Triangle Zone, as well as for general corporate purposes.
