Vancouver, British Columbiaâ€¶Corvus Gold Inc. (“Corvus” or the “Company”) (TSX: KOR, OTCQX: CORVF) announces that it has increased the amount of the non-brokered private placement announced April 17, 2012.Â The non-brokered private placement will now consist of up to 8,250,000 common shares at a price of CAD 0.67 per share for gross proceeds of up to CAD 5,527,500 (the “Offering”).
All Shares issued in the Offering will have a hold period in Canada of four months from the closing of the Offering. Â It is anticipated that certain insiders of the Company will participate in the Offering.
