ENP Newswire - 25 July 2014

Release date- 24072014 - Cassidy Gold Corp. announces that, subject to acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange, it proposes borrowing US$12,000,000 from Alchemists Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of an existing shareholder of Cassidy, pursuant to a convertible debenture.

The debenture will not bear interest and is payable on maturity, 12 months from the date of advance of funds. Cassidy may repay the debenture in whole or in part prior to maturity without notice, bonus or penalty, at its sole discretion.

The debenture is convertible into common shares of Cassidy at the option of AI at a deemed price of CAD$0.05 per share, but is subject to the conditions that it cannot be converted until approval from the shareholders of Cassidy for the creation of a new control person, and approval from the TSX Venture Exchange, have been received. Cassidy expects to call a shareholders meeting to seek such approval on or about September 25, 2014.

Cassidy also announces that it will conduct a non-brokered private placement of common shares of the Company (the 'Shares') at a price of CAD$0.05 per Share for aggregate proceeds of up to US$9,500,000. Such number of Shares amounting to gross proceeds of US$5,500,000 will be purchased by AI. The balance of the private placement will be offered to existing shareholders of the Company if they choose to participate, in reliance on and subject to the requirements of, BC Instrument 45-534 and any other investors wishing to participate.

Shares acquired by AI and the placees will be subject to a hold period of four months plus one day from the date of completion of the financing in accordance with applicable securities legislation. The Shares will not be issued to AI until the shareholders of Cassidy have approved the creation of a new control person at its upcoming AGM.

No finders' fees will be paid in connection with the loan or the private placement financing.

Cassidy will use the proceeds from the convertible debenture and private placement to fund the capital expenditure requirements for the development of the Kouroussa Gold Project to commencement of gold production. The proceeds will also be used by Cassidy for general corporate purposes.

Development will include the purchase of a complete Gravity Gold Recovery Plant consisting of a 35 ton/hour milling circuit, 60 ton/hour crushing circuit and 100 ton/hour alluvial plant, inclusive of Falcon concentrators, to be built on site at Kouroussa. The project will be developed as both an open pit and an underground operation.

Cassidy's CEO, Marion Bush, said 'This is a major milestone in the life of Cassidy and will see us turning from explorer into gold producer. Cassidy is pleased to be able to offer new and existing shareholders the opportunity to support the Company as it transitions from explorer to near term gold producer.'
