Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities

On June 6, 2014, Midway Gold Corp. (the "Company" or "we") closed a public offering in the United States and Canada on a bought deal basis (the "Offering") of 30,121,000 of the Company's common shares (the "Offered Shares") at a price of $0.83 per Offered Share (the "Offering Price") for aggregate gross proceeds of $25,000,430. In connection with the Offering, the Company granted the underwriters an over-allotment option (the "Over-Allotment Option") exercisable in whole or in part, to purchase up to an additional 3,012,000 common shares (the "Additional Shares") of the Company for a period of 30 days from and including the closing date of the Offering.

On June 17, 2014, the underwriters exercised the Over-Allotment Option in full to purchase 3,012,000 Additional Shares at a per Additional Share price equal the Offering Price for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of approximately $2.5 million.

Pursuant to the Company's Articles and Notice of Articles, the Company may not issue common shares in an equity financing for a per common share price less than $1.85 per common share without the consent of the holders of the Company's Series A Preferred Shares (the "Series A Preferred Shareholders").

On May 14, 2014, we obtained the consent (the "Consent") of the Series A Preferred Shareholders with respect to the issuance of the Offered Shares in connection with the Offering. As consideration for obtaining the Consent and to compensate the Series A Preferred Shareholders for the dilution that they suffered. In connection with the exercise of the Over-Allotment Option, we issued the Series A Preferred Shareholders 381,669 common shares (the "Fee Shares"), which represents a consent fee equal to $316,785, at a deemed price per Fee Share equal to the Offering Price.

Concurrently with the exercise of the Over-Allotment Option, we issued the Fee Shares to the Series A Preferred Shareholders. The Fee Shares were not issued as part of the exercise of the Over-Allotment Option and have not been registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act"). The issuance of the Fee Shares was exempt from registration under Section 4(a)(2) of the U.S. Securities Act. The Series A Preferred Shareholders are institutional "accredited investors" (as defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D of the U.S. Securities Act).
