Caza Gold Announces US$600,000 Secured Loan with Bonus Shares and Shares for Debt

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/08/14 -- Caza Gold Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CZY) (OTCQX:CZGDF) (FRANKFURT:CZ6) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a loan agreement (the "Loan Agreement") with Polygon Mining Opportunity Master Fund ("Polygon") providing for the terms and conditions pursuant to which Polygon will loan the principal amount of US$600,000 to the Company (the "Loan"), as evidenced by a promissory note. The Loan is for a term of 18 months and is payable on demand after one year. The Loan bears interest at the rate of 12% per annum payable quarterly beginning on September 30, 2014. Polygon will also receive common shares of the Company (the "Bonus Shares") as partial compensation for entering into the Loan Agreement. The number of Bonus Shares will be equal to 18% of the principal amount of the Loan divided by the market price of the common shares on the date of the notice of the Company's next shareholders' meeting, subject to a minimum price of $0.08 per Bonus Share to the extent required by the TSX Venture Exchange, issuable following approval at such shareholders' meeting. As security for the payment of the Company's obligations and for the fulfilment and satisfaction of all covenants and agreements made under the Loan Agreement, the Company has, concurrently with the Loan Agreement, entered into a general security agreement with Polygon pursuant to which the Company granted Polygon a security interest in all personal property of the Company, including the property option agreement dated January 31, 2011 between the Company, Inversiones Ecologicas S.A. ("Inecosa") and the shareholders of Inecosa, under which the Company holds rights to acquire certain mining properties located in Nicaragua, including the Los Andes project.

Polygon is a 'Control Person' and 'related party' of the Company (as defined by securities legislation) and currently owns 21,342,499 common shares of the Company (51.2% of its issued and outstanding share capital). As required by the shareholder rights plan agreement dated June 12, 2012 between the Company and Computershare Investor Services Inc. as rights agent, the Company will seek, at its next Annual General Meeting, or any earlier shareholder meeting, shareholder approval to the issuance of the Bonus Shares to Polygon.

The proceeds of the Loan will be used to complete current work, and fund further exploration and development work on the Company's Los Andes High-Sulfidation Gold Project in Nicaragua and for working capital.

The Company is also pleased to announce that it has entered into shares for debt settlement agreements with one or more current or former executives of the Company to settle a total of up to Cdn$160,000 by the issuance of up to 2,000,000 common shares of the Company (the "Shares for Debt") at a price of $0.08 per share, the market price as of the date of the settlement.

Related Party Transactions: The Loan, the Bonus Shares and the Shares for Debt are all subject to the prior approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and are 'related party' transactions under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions. Based on written recommendations prepared by a special committee of the independent directors of the Company, the Board, with the non-independent directors refraining from voting, agreed to the terms of the transactions. There were no materially contrary views, or abstention by any directors other than as set out above and there were no material disagreements between the Board and the special committee. The Formal Valuation exemptions available to the Company include: s. 5.5(a) due to the fair market value of both the subject matter of the transaction as well as the consideration given by the Company to the related party not exceeding 25% of the market capitalization of the Company and s. 5.5(g), on the basis that: (i) the Company is in serious financial difficulty, (ii) the Shares for Debt, the Loan and the Bonus Shares are designed to improve the financial position of the Company, (iii) the Board is comprised of three independent directors and (iv) at least two-thirds of the Company's independent directors, acting in good faith, have determined that items (i) and (ii) above apply, and that the terms of Shares for Debt, the Loan and the Bonus Shares are reasonable in the circumstances for the Company. The Minority Approval Requirement exemptions available to the Company include s. 5.7(1)(a) and s. 5.7(1)(g) based on, respectively, the same underlying reasons. Apart from the proposed issuance of the Bonus Shares, the above transactions are expected to be completed less than 21 days after the date of this news release, as several material matters were uncertain and not ascertainable until at, or close to, the date of this release. These matters include the Loan amount, the terms of the Loan Agreement, the use of proceeds, additional matters tied to the execution of the Loan documents, the consent of the debt holders in respect of the Shares for Debt transaction, as well as internal approvals of Polygon. Due to, in part, the foregoing, the Company was unable to issue this release prior to today's date with any certainty, and in the Company's opinion this shorter period was unavoidable and reasonable and necessary in the circumstances.

In connection with the Company's press release dated August 6, 2014 announcing the departure of Mr. Greg Myers as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company effective as of August 1, 2014, the Company also wishes to announce that Mr. Myers has resigned as a director of the Company effective the same date.
