("Energold" or "the Company") announced that its debt refinancing transaction, under a binding term sheet with Extract Advisors LLC ("Extract"), first announced on February 14, 2017, (the "Financing") remains in process despite being delayed to accommodate the completion of the formal financing documentation.

Closing of the financing is expected by June 15, 2017 and remains subject to the satisfaction of customary commercial lending conditions precedent, receipt of required consents from and agreements with certain existing lenders to the Company, and the receipt of applicable regulatory approvals, including approval of the TSX-V.
