The Company issued 3,587,000 non-flow-through units and 869,333 flow-through units in the offering.
The flow-through units were priced at $0.21 per unit, with each flow-through unit consisting of one flow-through eligible common share and one-half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant is exercisable to acquire an additional common share at $0.26 for 18 months.

Northern Freegold intends to use the net proceeds of the sale of the flow-through units for further exploration work on its Freegold Mountain property. The net proceeds from the sale of the non-flow-through units may be used for working capital in addition to furthering work on the Company's Freegold Mountain property.
John Burges, President & CEO commented, "with the proceeds from this offering we are launching the next phase of our exploration and drilling program at Freegold Mountain, which had already been pre-paid in part. We plan to commence work on-site in mid-May with diamond drilling anticipated to start at the end of May/early June."
All securities issued in connection with the private placement will be subject to a four month hold period expiring on September 11, 2012. The private placement remains subject to final acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.

Each of the 125,100 Compensation Warrants issued in respect of non-flow-through units (each, a "NFT Compensation Warrant") are exercisable to acquire one unit for $0.22 for 24 months, and each of the 38,780 Compensation Warrants issued in respect of flow-through units (each, a "FT Compensation Warrant") will be exercisable to acquire one unit for $0.26 for 18 months. In each case, the units acquired on exercise of the Compensation Warrants will be comprised of one non-flow-through common share and one-half of one non-transferable warrant (each, a "Broker's Warrant").
