Kaminak Gold Corporation ("Kaminak" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed the bought deal private placement financing (the "Offering") announced on May 11th, 2012 and that the over-allotment option was fully exercised. The Company has issued 3,000,000 Class A common shares, which qualify as "flow-through" shares for purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the "Shares") at a price of C$2.10 per Share for aggregate gross proceeds of C$6,300,000.

Each Broker Warrant shall be exercisable for one common share of the Company at a price of C$2.10 at any time up to 24 months after closing. The Shares issued under the Offering are subject to a hold period which will expire four months and one day from the date of closing, being October 1st, 2012.
