All shares, and any shares acquired on the exercise of warrants, will be subject to a hold period expiring on September 13, 2016. Finder's fees in cash were paid on a portion of this placement.
With completion of this last tranche of the non-brokered financing, along with the $936,200 flow-through private placement completed on April 15, 2016 and the $1,253,850 closed on May 6, 2016, TerraX has now raised a total of $3,211,450 in both flow-through and non-flow-through funding that will be used for general working capital and to finance additional drilling this summer on TerraX's wholly owned Yellowknife City gold project, immediately north of Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories.
TerraX completed an extensive winter drill program at Yellowknife City Gold on March 30, 2016 with 7,310 meters of core having been drilled on multiple gold targets. Logging and cutting of the drill core has now been completed, with assay results pending from the Barney and Hebert-Brent zones and five additional holes drilled just prior to the end of the program at the Mispickel discovery. Maps showing the location of these target areas on the YCG are available on our web site under “2016 Field Exploration”.

About the Yellowknife City Gold Project
The Yellowknife City Gold ("YCG") encompasses 118 sq km of contiguous land immediately north and south of the City of Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories. Through a series of acquisitions, TerraX now controls one of the six major high-grade gold camps in Canada. Being within 15 km of the City of Yellowknife, the YCG is close to vital infrastructure, including transportation, service providers, hydro-electric power and skilled tradespeople.
The YCG lies on the prolific Yellowknife greenstone belt, covering 23 km of strike length on the southern and northern extensions of the shear system that hosted the high-grade Con and Giant gold mines. The project area contains multiple shears that are the recognized hosts for gold deposits in the Yellowknife gold district, with innumerable gold showings and recent high grade drill results that serve to indicate the project's potential as a world-class gold district.
