TORONTO, Dec. 24, 2021 /CNW/ - American Eagle Gold Corp. (TSXV: AE) ("American Eagle" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received final approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") and has closed on the acquisition of an option to acquire a 100% interest in the NAK property ("Project") in the Babine Copper-Gold Porphyry district in central British Columbia. American Eagle also announces that it has closed on a $1,510,774 Flow-Through Financing.

NAK Acquisition

The NAK acquisition offers American Eagle Gold a valuable risk-reward proposition to drill test a new geophysical feature within a well-understood geologic environment. NAK's known copper-gold porphyry mineralization is open at depth and is defined by a compelling geophysical signature analogous to Newcrest's Red Chris Mine and Newmont's Tatogga project located in Northwest BC. The acquisition of NAK was supported by the analysis and reinterpretation of geochemical, geophysics and drilling data, all of which demonstrated coincidental anomalies.

Private Placement Financing Closed

The Company has closed its previously announced private placement (the "Offering") of 10,791,244 flow-through units (the "FT Units") at a price of $0.14 per FT Unit, for gross proceeds of $1,510,774. Each FT Unit consists of one common share of the Company to be issued as a "flow-through share" within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (a "FT Share") and one half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share at a price of C$0.25 at any time for a period of 24 months from the closing of the Offering.

The funds will go towards the advancement and exploration of the Project.

The gross proceeds from the issue and sale of the FT Shares will be used for Canadian exploration expenses and will qualify as "flow-through mining expenditures", as defined in subsection 127(9) of the Income Tax Act (Canada), which will be incurred on or before December 31, 2022 and renounced to the subscribers with an effective date no later than December 31, 2021 in an aggregate amount not less than the gross proceeds raised from the issue and sale of the FT Shares.

As consideration for services provided by certain finders in connection with the Offering, the Company paid finder's fees consisting of (i) cash consideration of $98,754.19, and (ii) 705,387 finder's warrants, each such finder's warrant entitling the holder to obtain one common share of the Company (a "Finder's Share") at a price of $0.14 per Finder's Share for a period of 24 months from the closing of the Offering.

All securities issued and sold pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a four-month-and-one-day hold period in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws. Closing of the Offering was subject to all necessary regulatory approvals including final approval from the TSX Venture Exchange.
