LONDON, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 20, 2013) - Montana Gold Mining Company Inc. ("MGM" or the "Company") (CNSX:MGM) has completed a $100,000 private placement financing; discontinued plans to option 50% of two gold projects to a subsidiary and to distribute that company's shares; re-appointed two directors; and retained a professional market maker.
A non-brokered private placement financing totaling $100,000 was recently completed though the issuance of units priced at $0.05 per unit. Each unit was comprised of one common share and one warrant to purchase an additional common share at $0.10 during the first year and at $0.20 during the second year.
The Company has discontinued previously announced plans to option a 50% interest in two gold properties located in Nevada and Montana to the Company's wholly owned subsidiary Celerity Mineral Corporation ("Celerity"), and in turn, to distribute the common shares of Celerity to MGM shareholders. Given current market conditions and the status of the properties, management and directors have determined the best course at this time is for MGM to retain a 100% interest in both properties.
Two former directors of the Company, Luard Manning, P.Eng and Kent Britton, BA Econ., have been re-appointed as directors of MGM. Both had recently been serving as directors of the subsidiary Celerity.
The Company has recently retained GMUR Consulting ("GMUR") to provide professional market making services with respect to trading in the Company's common shares. GMUR is led by Graham Murray who has been an equity trader in the Canadian capital markets for 25 years. Mr. Murray holds his Canadian Securities Course and registered trader status, and provides direct access market making services for issuers listed on the TSXV and CNSX exchanges. GMUR will be compensated on a cash for services basis and will not be issued Company shares or stock options.
Updates on the Company's two 100% owned gold properties are being prepared and will be released in the near term. These include the Golden Trail Property, located in Elko County, Nevada, and the Silver Bell - St. Lawrence Property located in the Virginia City Mining District, Montana.
