PARAMOUNT GOLD NEVADA HAS CLOSED ITS REGISTERED DIRECT OFFERING AND CONCURRENT BEST EFFORTS OFFERING IN CANADA
Winnemucca, Nevada – June 30, 2020 – Paramount Gold Nevada Corp. (NYSE American: PZG) (“Paramount” or the “Company”) announced today that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered registered direct offering in the US (the “US Offering”) and a concurrent best efforts agency offering in Canada (the “Canadian Offering, and together with the US Offering, the “Offerings”) of 4,807,700 shares of its common stock at a price of US$1.04 per common stock. The gross proceeds of the Offerings totaled US$5 million.
“The continued support of existing shareholders including Seabridge Gold and the addition of new shareholders enabled us to raise the full amount we were seeking. This new capital strengthens our balance sheet and positions us to complete critical milestones for the next phases of state and federal permitting for our Grassy Mountain Gold Project. Our permitting efforts will be complemented by the upcoming completion of the Feasibility Study which remains on track for release this summer,” commented CEO, Rachel Goldman.
Ms. Goldman added, “In addition to upcoming permitting and feasibility milestones, it is our expectation that we will initiate a drill program upon receipt of all permits at the highly prospective Frost project, located just 12 miles west of Grassy Mountain.”
