Vancouver, British Columbia CANADA, November 28, 2012 /FSC/ - Miranda Gold Corp.("Miranda") (TSX-V: MAD),is pleased to announce that further to its news release of November 15, 2012, and due to significant demand, it has increased the size of its previously announced non-brokered private placement from $3,000,000 to $5,000,000 through the issuance of 20,000,000 units at a price of $0.25 per unit (a "Unit"). The private placement is now fully subscribed. Each Unit will consist of one common share and one non-transferable common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one additional common share of Miranda at a price of
$0.375 for the first two years and $0.50 thereafter until expiry five years from the date of closing the private placement. If the daily volume weighted average trading price of the common shares of Miranda is at least $0.50 per share for 20 consecutive trading days in the period commencing four months after the closing date and up to two years after the closing date, or at least $0.75 per share thereafter, Miranda will have the right, exercisable within five trading days thereof, to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to the date which is 30 days after notice is given to the holders of the warrants of the accelerated expiry date and a news release to that effect is given.
Ken Cunningham, CEO of Miranda comments: "The market appetite for a fund raising is here now for Miranda and the board of directors deems it prudent to ensure that the company has a strong treasury. It is those junior exploration companies who are under-capitalized that are the most susceptible to being unable to withstand downturns in the market such as the kind we are experiencing now. Miranda is grateful that we have this kind support."
The private placement is subject to compliance with applicable securities laws and to receipt of regulatory approval. The Company will pay finders' fees of 6% in cash or Units.
Proceeds of this private placement will primarily be used to advance work in Colombia as well as for continued exploration on the Company's projects in the United States and general corporate purposes.
