Amarillo Gold Corp. is proposing to complete a non-brokered private placement of units at a subscription price of 20 cents per unit for aggregate gross proceeds to the company of up to $5-million. Each unit comprises one common share and one common share purchase warrant.

As at the date hereof, the company has received commitments from arm's-length and non-arm's-length lead investors in respect of part of the private placement.
The company intends to use the net proceeds from the private placement for advancing the company's Mara Rosa project by continuing the feasibility study, and applying for the licence to install; and for general corporate purposes.
In connection with the private placement, the company may pay a maximum 6-per-cent finder's fee in cash on a portion of the funds to be raised, subject to all necessary regulatory approvals.
The company intends to close the private placement on or about May 27, 2019, subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. All securities issued pursuant to the private placement will be subject to, among other things, a hold period of four months and one day in accordance with applicable securities laws.
