Delta, British Columbia, March 26, 2018. Desert Gold Ventures Inc. (the “Company”) (TSX.V: DAU, FF: QXR2, OTC: DAUGF) announces, further to its news release of March 19, 2018 that the Company has closed the first tranche (the “First Tranche”) of its non-brokered private placement of up to 4,000,000 units at a price of CDN $0.25 per unit (the “Unit”) to raise up to an aggregate of CDN $1,000,000 (the “Financing”). The Company has raised proceeds of $538,187 through the sale of 2,152,750 Units. 

Pursuant to the terms of the Financing, each Unit consists of one common share in the equity of the Company and one share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at a price of CDN $0.30 per share for a period of two (2) years from the closing of the Financing, subject to a thirty (30) day acceleration clause, at the Company’s option, upon announcement by the Company that its shares have traded on a volume weighted average basis of CDN $0.60 per common share, or more, for at least ten (10) consecutive trading days.

All securities issued as a result of closing of this first tranche are subject to a statutory hold period expiring on July 27, 2018. In connection with closing the First Tranche the Company paid finder’s fee consisting of a cash fee of $3,000 and 12,000 non –transferable brokers warrants on the same terms as the warrant terms set out above.

The proceeds of the Financing will be used for drilling and other exploration activities at the Company’s projects in Western Mali.

Certain directors of the Company acquired Units under the Private Placement. Such participation is considered to be a related party transaction as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The transaction will be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of any securities issued to or the consideration paid by such persons will exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
