K2 Applies to Extend Warrants

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- K2 Gold Corporation (“K2” or the “Company”) (KTO:TSX-V) announces that it has applied to the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) to extend the term of 3,962,000 common share purchase warrants originally set to expire on June 12, 2019 (the “Warrants”) to June 12, 2020.

The Warrants were originally issued pursuant to a private placement of units completed by the Company in June 8, 2018 (the “2018 Private Placement”). The exercise price of the Warrants will remain at $0.37 for non flow through warrants and $0.45 for flow through warrants, and the Warrants will continue to remain subject to acceleration in the event that the common shares of the Company close at or above $0.60 per share for more than 10 consecutive trading days.

The amendment to extend the expiry date of the Warrants to June 12, 2020 is subject to the approval of the TSXV. In accordance with TSXV policies, the expiry date of the finder warrants issued in connection with the 2018 Private Placement will not be extended.
