Harvest Gold Closes Financing; Commissions Cerro Cascaron Drill Program; Applies to Amend Warrants; Sets Options


Vancouver, British Columbia / August 9, 2018 Harvest Gold Corporation (TSX.V: HVG) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that, further to its news releases of June 8, 2018, June 22, 2018 and August 2, 2018, it has closed a fourth and final tranche of its non‑brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) issuing an additional 4,000,000 units (“Units”) at a price of $0.05 per Unit, raising additional gross proceeds of CDN$200,000 for a total of CDN$857,100 gross proceeds raised (net proceeds $836,000). Each Unit consists of one common share and one transferable common share purchase warrant exercisable at $0.10 per share for a period of two years. The securities issued in this tranche have a hold period expiring December 10, 2018.

The Company paid finder’s fees of 8% cash and 8% warrants to Canaccord Genuity Corp. on certain funds. The net proceeds will be used for upcoming Joint Venture exploration related expenditures at Cerro Cascaron in Mexico, marketing and administrative expenses.


Harvest has delivered a cheque for $700,000 to Evrim Resources Corp (TSX.V: EVM) to commission the Cerro Cascaron drill program of up to 3000 metres. The final details and costs of the drill budget will be completed before August 23rd and the drill program is expected to begin about the third week in September. Management at Harvest and Evrim have agreed to wait out the August rainy season to forego helicopter costs which would have effectively reduced the number of meters drilled.


The Company also announces that it intends, subject to the acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange, to amend the exercise price of 25,824,000 outstanding warrants (the “Warrants”) from $0.10 to $0.08 per share and extend the expiry date of 24,524,000 of  the Warrants from  September 9, 2018 to September 21, 2018. The expiry dates of the remaining Warrants, being  October 7, 2018 as to 100,000 Warrants and October 18, 2018 as to 1,200,000 Warrants, will remain the same.


The Company has granted 1,800,000 options to certain directors and consultants of the Company.  The options are exercisable at $0.075 per share and have a term of 5 years.


Insiders of Harvest Gold subscribed for 1,500,000 Units, with Richard J. Mark, President, CEO and a director of the Company, subscribing for 600,000 Units; and Joel Matheson, a director of the Company, subscribing for 900,000 Units in the third tranche of the financing announced August 2, 2018.  As a result, the Private Placement is a related party transaction (as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”)).  The Company relied upon the “Issuer Not Listed on Specified Markets” and “Fair Market Value Not More Than $2,500,000” exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements, respectively, under MI 61-101.
