Valdez Gold Inc. Announces Non-Brokered Private Placement of Flow-Through Common Shares

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 10, 2010) - NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES.

Valdez Gold Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:VAZ) is pleased to announce that, subject to regulatory approval, it has arranged a non-brokered private placement with accredited investors of up to 7,500,000 flow-through common shares at a price of $0.12 per flow-through common share for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $900,000 (the "Offering"). The common shares will have a hold period of four months from closing. The Company is expecting the closing date to occur on or about March 7, 2010.

The proceeds of the Offering will be used to fund the Company's exploration program on the Flume Property in Yukon, Canada.

Company management, directors, and insiders propose to subscribe for up to 7,000,000 flow-through common shares, in which event the private placement will be a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"). The transaction, however, will be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of any common shares issued to or the consideration paid by such persons will exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
