Tyhee Announces Non-Brokered Private Palcement and Update on Brokered Private Placement

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 2, 2012) - Tyhee Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TDC) (the "Company") announces that the Company, Euro Pacific Canada Inc. and Byron Capital Markets Ltd. have mutually agreed to terminate the brokered private placement of announced December 16, 2011. A total of 31,240,614 units were placed to purchasers on the President's list.

The Company is pleased to announce that it will be proceeding with a non-brokered private placement of up to 72,222,222 units (the "Units") at $0.09 per Unit, and has received subscriptions for approximately 10.2 million units for proceeds on the initial closing of approximately $920,000. Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company and one transferable common share purchase warrant of the Company (the "Warrants"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase a further common share in the Company (the "Warrant Shares") at a price of $0.125 per Warrant Share within 24 months of closing. On the first closing of the non-brokered private placement the Company will issue warrants to purchase 333,360 common shares, exercisable at a price of $0.11 per share for a period of 24 months, to Euro Pacific Canada Inc., as a finder's fee. All securities sold in the private placement will be subject to a 4-month hold period from closing. The non-brokered private placement is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The funds will be used to advance its Yellowknife Gold Project, an advanced stage wholly-owned gold project in the feasibility study and permitting stage, as well as for general corporate purposes. A feasibility study, lead by SRK Consulting, is underway and expected to be completed by mid-2012. It will build on the positive Preliminary Feasibility Study completed in July 2010, which recommended operating at 3,000 tonnes per day. The feasibility study will also consider an expanded resource as well as other updated inputs, including a more current gold price.
