Levon Resources Ltd. ("Levon" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:LVN)(BERLIN:LO9)(FRANKFURT:LO9) is pleased to announce the closing of its bought deal private placement with Canaccord Genuity Corp.

Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company (the "Share") and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for one additional Share for period of 18 months from the closing of the Offering at an exercise price of CDN$1.20. In the event that after four months and one day after the closing of the Offering, the volume weighted average trading price of the Company's common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange, for a period of 15 consecutive trading days exceeds CDN$1.75, the Company may, within five days after such an event, provide notice to the warrant holders of early expiry and thereafter, the Warrants will expire on the date which is 30 days after the date of the notice to the warrant holders. 

Levon paid the Underwriter a cash commission in the amount of $525,026 and issued to the Underwriter 1,066,720 warrants (the Underwriter's Warrants). Each Underwriter's warrant is exercisable to purchase one Share at a price of $1.00 for a period of 12 months from closing of the Offering.

Fronteer Gold Inc. ("Fronteer") purchased 6,666,700 Units of the Offering. After giving effect to this purchase and closing of the Offering, Fronteer beneficially owns approximately 8% of the outstanding common shares of the Company.
