Lumina Gold Announces CDN $20 Million Private Placement of Common Shares

Vancouver, British Columbia – Lumina Gold Corp. (“Lumina”) (TSXV: LUM), is pleased to announce that it plans to conduct a non-brokered private placement of up to 28,571,428 common shares in the capital of Lumina (the “Shares”) at a price of CDN $0.70 per Share to raise gross proceeds of up to approximately CDN $20 million (the “Private Placement”). The price of CDN $0.70 represents a 5% discount to the last closing price of Lumina common shares of CDN $0.74 and a 10% discount to the 20 day volume-weighted average price of Lumina common shares of CDN $0.78.

The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to advance exploration of Lumina’s properties and for general working capital purposes.

Certain directors, officers and other insiders of Lumina may acquire securities under the Private Placement. Any such participation would be considered to be a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Securityholders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The transaction will be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of any shares issued to or the consideration paid by such persons will exceed 25% of Lumina’s market capitalization.

Closing of the Private Placement is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. Lumina anticipates closing the Private Placement as soon as practicable subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals. Finder’s fees will be payable on a portion of the private placement, in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.

All Shares issued in connection with the Private Placement will be subject to a four-month and one day hold period under applicable securities laws.

The securities offered have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or applicable state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold to persons in the United States absent registration or an exemption from such registration requirements. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
