Integra Responds to Shareholder Demand to Increase Exploration Drilling, Announces $8 Million Non-Brokered Financing

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integra Resources Corp. (TSXV:ITR ; OTCQX:IRRZF) (the “Company” or “Integra”) is pleased to announce that it intends to raise approximately C$8 million via a non-brokered offering (the “Offering”).

The Offering is expected to consist of a private placement of special warrants at a price of $0.86 per special warrant, issued to accredited investors, followed by conversion of the special warrants to free trading common shares for no additional consideration through the filing of a short form prospectus. The Company expects the Offering to close prior to August 26, 2019. Each special warrant will be  convertible for one common share of the Company.  The closing of the Offering is subject to conditions, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

George Salamis, President and CEO of Integra Resources commented, “Recent news releases have reported substantial gold-silver resource growth at the Project alongside significant conversion of resources from the inferred category to the measured and indicated category. In addition, the Company has received very positive metallurgical test results for the Project, especially in the oxide and transitional gold-silver mineralization. Based on this positive disclosure, several of Integra’s larger shareholders have indicated a specific desire to have the Company immediately increase our exploration drilling on the Project through the addition of 2 to 3 drill rigs.  The Company’s exploration team has outlined a series of high priority gold-silver step-out targets designed to expand the existing large oxide and transitional gold-silver resource base immediately adjacent to the current resource limits. These targets, which also host geochemical anomalies, positive geophysical signatures and indications of historic underground mining in the late 1800’s, have never been explored through modern drilling. Integra’s exploration team is keen to drill several targets immediately, and most drill pads for this step-out drill program are permitted and ready to be tested through summer and autumn 2019.”

The net proceeds from the Offering will be used to fund exploration, including an additional 15,000m to 20,000m of drilling, as well as engineering expenditures and general corporate purposes.

The securities have not been, and will not be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act”), or any U.S. state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States without registration under the 1933 Act and all applicable state securities laws or compliance with the requirements of an applicable exemption therefrom. This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities in the United States, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
