TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / July 19, 2021 / E2Gold Inc. (TSXV:ETU) (the "Company" or "E2") is pleased to announce that it has closed the first tranche of its previously announced private placement (the "Offering") pursuant to which it has issued an aggregate of 11,249,366 units ("Units") at a price of $0.10 per Unit, 8,475,345 "flow-through" units ("FT Units") at a price of $0.11 per FT Unit and 23,550,000 special "flow-through" units ("Special FT Units") at a price of $0.13 per Special Ft Unit, to raise aggregate gross proceeds of $5,118,724.
Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company (a "Common Share") and one Common Share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"); each FT Unit is comprised of one Common Share that qualifies as a "flow-through share" as defined in subsection 66(15) of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (each, a "FT Share") and one-half of one Warrant; and each Special FT Unit is comprised of one FT Share and one Warrant. Each whole Warrant is exercisable to acquire one additional Common Share (which shall not be a "flow-through" share) at a price of $0.15 for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance thereof.
An amount equal to the gross proceeds allocated to the sale of the FT Shares comprising each of the FT Units and Special FT Units will be used for expenditures which qualify as Canadian exploration expenses ("CEE") and "flow-through mining expenditures" (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada)). The Company will renounce such CEE with an effective date of no later than December 31, 2021.
Crescat Capital LLC ("Crescat") has made a strategic investment in the Company in connection with the Offering, pursuant to which it acquired an aggregate of 10,000,000 Common Shares and 10,000,000 Warrants.

In connection with the closing of the first tranche of the Offering, the Company issued an aggregate of 2,394,667 broker warrants to eligible registrants, each such broker warrant entitling the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.10 for a period of two years.
