Sage Gold Announces Private Placement

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 1, 2014) - Sage Gold Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SGX) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement of up to 3,000,000 common shares ("Shares") at a price of $0.15 per Share for gross proceeds of up to $450,000 (the "Offering"). The Shares will be designated as flow through shares under the Income Tax Act (Canada). Completion of the Offering is subject to the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV"), and the Shares issued will be subject to a statutory four (4) month hold period from the closing date of the Offering.

Six insiders of the Company intend to participate in the Offering, thereby making the Offering a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). Mr. Patrick Mars, Chairman and a director of the Company, Mr. Nigel Lees, President and Chief Executive Officer and a director of the Company, Mr. Sandy Chim, a director of the Company, Mr. Gary Robertson, a director of the Company, Mr. William Love, VP - Business Development of the Company and Mr. Robert Ryan, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, intend to purchase, in the aggregate, up to 1,595,800 Shares pursuant to the terms of the Offering.

Mr. Mars intends to subscribe for 599,467 Shares and will own or control 820,988 Shares or approximately 6.2% of the total Shares issued and outstanding after the completion of the Offering. Mr. Lees intends to subscribe for 200,000 Shares and will own or control 589,214 Shares or approximately 4.4% of the total Shares issued and outstanding after the completion of the Offering. Mr. Chim intends to subscribe for 325,000 Shares and will own or control 489,701 Shares or approximately 3.7% of the total Shares issued and outstanding after the completion of the Offering. Mr. Robertson intends to subscribe for 225,000 Shares and will own or control 328,468 Shares or approximately 2.5% of the total Shares issued and outstanding after the completion of the Offering. Mr. Love intends to subscribe for 133,333 Shares and will own or control 192,276 Shares or approximately 1.4% of the total issued and outstanding Shares after the completion of the Offering. Mr. Ryan intends to subscribe for 113,000 Shares and will own or control 113,000 Shares or approximately 0.9% of the Shares issued and outstanding after the completion of the Offering. The proposed Offering was unanimously approved by the directors of the Company, with Messrs. Mars, Lees, Robertson, and Chim disclosing their interests and abstaining from voting with respect thereto. The private placement is 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 Messrs. Mars, Lees, Chim, Robertson, Love and Ryan would exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization.

None of the proceeds from the private placement will be used to fund the purchase or pursuit of new businesses, operations or activities, or to compensate, settle indebtedness with, or otherwise satisfy obligations to any person who is a Related Party (as such term is defined in the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") Corporate Finance Manual). Specifically, the use of the proceeds from the Offering will be used to advance the Company's exploration properties.

Its main properties are the Clavos Gold deposit in Timmins and the Lynx deposit and other exploration properties in the Beardmore-Geraldton Gold Camp.
