Skyline Announces Increase of Private Placement and Closing of First Tranche

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 11, 2011) - Skyline Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:SK) ("Skyline" or the "Company") announced a non-brokered financing of $4 million on June 13, 2011, offering a selection of units comprised of:

  • One flow-through common share at a price of $0.28 per unit with a half flow-through warrant exercisable for two years at a price of $0.40 per whole common share, or
  • One non-flow-through common share at a price of $0.24 per unit with a half non-flow-through warrant exercisable for two years at a price of $0.35 per whole common share.

At the announcement date, the Company estimated that its spring and summer exploration work would require initial funding of approximately $4 million. The digital compilation of the historic data and early results from the current exploration program are progressing well and have disclosed additional lower elevation targets which could allow for an extended field season to complete additional follow-up work.

The re-establishment and expansion of the exploration camp and the initial exploration work has progressed better than expected. The exploration focus remains on delivering drill-ready targets that will test for high-grade gold structures.

The Company is pleased to announce that there has been strong demand for this financing and that, coupled with the potential for more field work this year, has caused the Company to increase the current offering by $2 million to a maximum of $6 million. The Company expects to close the second tranche on July 14, 2011.

The first tranche of the Company's non-brokered private placement was closed on July 8, 2011 with a total of 10,751,000 units for net proceeds of $2,908,680. The total includes both flow-through and non-flow-through units that are allocated as follows:

  • 8,211,000 flow-through units priced at $0.28 per unit, and
  • 2,540,000 non-flow-through units priced at $0.24 per unit.

All units have a hold period that expires four months from the date of issue.
