VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 5, 2013) -

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

Integra Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ICG) ("Integra" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed the third tranche of its non-brokered private placement (the "Offering"). Subject to final regulatory approval, the Company has increased and closed the Offering for gross proceeds of $4,361,075.

"The interest in this offering is a testament to the ability of quality projects in safe jurisdictions to attract investment dollars in light of challenging market conditions. The Lamaque Gold Project continues to gain momentum and we have the financial resources and team needed to deliver on our near-term corporate and exploration initiatives," commented Company CEO, Stephen de Jong.

In the third and final tranche the Company issued 2,739,000 flow through shares (the "FT Shares") and 2,333,333 non-flow through units (the "NFT Units") for a total of 5,072,333 shares or units and gross proceeds of $856,715. The third tranche shares are subject to a statutory four month hold period which expires on January 5, 2014.

The Offering consists of FT Shares and NFT Units at a price of $0.185 per FT Share and $0.15 per NFT Unit. Each FT Share consists of one flow through common share and no warrant. Each NFT Unit consists of one common share and one-half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant. Each whole Non-Flow Through warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share at an exercise price of $0.23 for 24 months following completion of the Offering. If the Company's Shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange at a weighted average price of greater than $0.40 for any ten consecutive trading day period the Company may, on written notice to the holders of the Warrants, reduce the exercise period of the Warrants to a date that is not less than 30 days from the date of the notice.

Certain directors and officers of the Company acquired securities under the private placement. Such participation is considered to be a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"). The transaction will be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of any shares issued to or the consideration paid by such persons will exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization.

The proceeds from the issuance of the FT Shares will qualify as Canadian and/or Quebec exploration expenses which will be renounced to investors no later than December 31, 2013. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering primarily for expenditures on the Company's Lamaque property as well as for general working capital.

Total finder's fees are payable as to $292,573 in cash and 1,666,665 in Compensation Options. The Compensation Options entitle the holder to purchase one common share at an exercise price of $0.23 for 24 months following completion of the Offering. If the Company's Shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange at a weighted average price of greater than $0.40 for any ten consecutive trading day period the Company may, on written notice to the holders of the Compensation Options, reduce the exercise period to a date that is not less than 30 days from the date of the notice.
