Nordgold has paid an aggregate of CAD$5.0 million (approximately US$3.8 million) in connection with exercising the Warrants.

As a result of the Transaction, Nordgold holds an aggregate of 55,574,999 Shares and has therefore increased its stake in Northquest from 42.9% to 52.3% on a non-diluted basis.

Nordgold has now exercised all of its warrants in Northquest.

As part of Nordgold’s strategy to achieve long term sustainable growth, we continue to pursue a number of exciting exploration opportunities and it is particularly pleasing to see success in the Pistol Bay investment. We are also looking forward to the continuing progress at the 3.8 million ounce Montagne d’Or gold project in French Guiana with a Feasibility Study expected to conclude in Q4 2016. Nordgold will continue to invest strategically in its organic growth pipeline and where we see opportunities to acquire premium-quality reserves and resources.” Nikolai ZelenskiChief Executive Officer of Nordgold
