Sabina Gold & Silver Announces Arrangement of Non-Brokered Private Placement Financing to Raise $20 Million


VANCOUVER - Sabina Gold & Silver Corp (the “Company”) (SBB - TSX) is pleased to announce that it has arranged a non-brokered private placement (the “Financing’) pursuant to which it will sell up to 14,385,724 flow through common shares (the “Flow-Through Common Shares”) at a price of $1.40 per share to raise gross proceeds of approximately $20 million. The proceeds from the sale of the Flow-Through Common Shares will be used for exploration on the Company’s Back River project.

“This year is another significant spend for the Company,” said Rob Pease, President & CEO “This infusion of flow-through dollars enables us to continue to aggressively drill at Back River and end the year in an even stronger cash position than previously anticipated. In a market where access to capital is increasingly harder to come by and cash is king, we believe this private placement demonstrates confidence in our project and our Company.”

Back River has reached the critical mass of ounces to push the project towards production, however, the Board and management believe that ongoing exploration work at Back River continues to de-risk the project and adds significant value to it and the Company. Given the cost of mobilizing for and servicing our programs in the North, there are significant efficiencies to maximizing work while the camps are up and running. This Financing will enable us to ease pressure on our treasury while taking advantage of an extended work season without cutting back on drilling.

The Financing is scheduled to close on or about June 10, 2013 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange. The total gross proceeds from the Financing must be used to incur Canadian exploration expenditures as defined by the Income Tax Act (Canada) by December 31, 2014.

Sabina Gold & Silver Corp. is an emerging gold developer with district scale, world class assets in one of the world’s newest, most politically stable mining jurisdictions: Nunavut, Canada.

Sabina’s primary assets, all located in Nunavut, consist of: the Back River Gold Project, currently in the pre-feasibility and permitting phase; the Wishbone Claims, a vastly prospective grass roots project; and the Hackett River Silver Royalty, a silver production royalty on Xstrata Zinc’s Hackett River project comprising 22.5% of the first 190 million ounces produced and 12.5% of all the silver produced thereafter.
