TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 16, 2013) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Klondex Mines Ltd. (TSX:KDX) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the closing of its previously announced private placement of 14,200,000 special warrants (the "Special Warrants") at a price of C$1.37 per Special Warrant for gross proceeds of C$19,454,000 (the "Offering"). A syndicate of agents, led by GMP Securities L.P., and including MGI Securities Inc., Mackie Research Capital Corporation, M Partners Inc., Euro Pacific Canada Inc., Jones, Gable & Company Limited and PI Financial Corp. acted as agents under the Offering.

Subject to the penalty provision described below, each Special Warrant entitles the holder to receive upon exercise or deemed exercise of the Special Warrant following the Qualification Date (as defined below), one common share of the Company ("Common Share") for no additional consideration. The Special Warrants not already exercised will be deemed exercised at the earlier of: (a) the third business day after the date of receipt for a final short form prospectus to qualify, in each of the provinces of Canada, except Quebec (the "Qualifying Provinces"), the distribution of the Common Shares to be issued upon exercise or deemed exercise of the Special Warrants (the "Qualification Date"); and (b) 4:59 p.m. (Toronto time) on February 17, 2014.

The Special Warrants are subject to a four month plus one day hold period in Canada. The Company shall use reasonable commercial efforts to obtain a receipt for a final short form prospectus to qualify the distribution of the Common Shares by November 30, 2013 (the "Penalty Date"). If the Company fails to qualify the Common Shares for issuance in the Qualifying Provinces by the Penalty Date, the holders of Special Warrants will be entitled to receive an additional 1% of Common Shares issuable upon the exercise of the Special Warrants for each seven-day period following the Penalty Date in which the Company fails to qualify the distribution of the Common Shares, subject to a maximum aggregate amount of 10% of additional Common Shares.

The net proceeds from the Offering are expected to be used for the development of the Fire Creek gold project in Nevada, USA, for general working capital requirements and for the repayment of debt.
