Seabridge Gold Closes $2.1 Million Flow-Through
Financing

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 25, 2005) -

Proceeds to Fund Exploration Program at Courageous Lake

Seabridge Gold (TSX VENTURE:SEA)(AMEX:SA) announced today that it has
closed its previously announced private placement financing of 500,000
flow-through shares at $4.25 per share for gross proceeds of $2,125,000.
This financing will be used to fund a 7,500 meter core drilling program
at the Company's 100% owned Courageous Lake gold project located in
Canada's Northwest Territories.

The shares issued under this private placement are subject to a
four-month hold period expiring on June 26, 2005. Finders fees of 5%
will be paid on a portion of the financing to two independent
third-parties.

The drill program at Courageous Lake will test three targets on the FAT
deposit. Two of these targets are step-out drilling to define the
potential north and south strike extensions of the deposit. The third
target is designed to better understand the distribution of high-grade
gold within the deposit.

National Instrument 43-101 Disclosure

Seabridge's Courageous Lake project covers 53 kilometers of the Matthews
Lake Greenstone Belt which hosts the 2 kilometer long FAT deposit. The
FAT, Canada's largest known undeveloped gold deposit, contains an
estimated 3.54 million ounces in the measured and indicated categories
(44.2 million tonnes grading 2.49 grams of gold per tonne) plus an
additional estimated 4.89 million ounces in the inferred category (65.5
million tonnes grading 2.32 grams of gold per tonne).

Exploration activities at the Courageous Lake gold project are being
conducted under the supervision of William E. Threlkeld, Registered
Professional Geologist, Senior Vice President of the Company and a
Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

Seabridge has been designed to provide its shareholders maximum leverage
to the price of gold. The Company has acquired a 100% interest in eight
North American gold projects which collectively contain an estimated
9.10 million ounces of resources in the measured and indicated
categories (246.3 million tonnes grading 1.15 grams of gold per tonne)
plus an additional estimated 7.55 million ounces of resources in the
inferred category (203.1 million tonnes grading 1.16 grams of gold per
tonne). (See http://www.seabridgegold.net/gold_resources.htm for a
breakdown of these gold resources by project as well as detailed
technical information in respect of the projects and the resource
calculations). The Company continues to seek expansion of its gold
resource base by acquisition of new projects and exploration programs
largely funded by partners.

All resource estimates reported in this disclosure are calculated in
accordance with the Canadian National Instrument 43-101 and the Canadian
Institute of Mining and Metallurgy Classification system. These
standards differ significantly from the requirements of the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission.
