Amarillo Gold Announces Gold-linked Credit Facility

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/18/14 -- Amarillo Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE: AGC) ("Amarillo" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a gold-linked credit facility (the "Facility"). The purpose of the Facility is to both finance the Company and to consolidate many of the Company's current obligations into a single structure with a repayment scheme that is consistent with a) its continuing development plans on its flagship Mara Rosa project and b) financing conditions in the junior gold equity markets. The creditors of the facility are shareholders of the Company.

Under the Facility, the Company can borrow up to the value of 5,000 ounces of gold. Two components of the facility are defined: An initial tranche of up to 2500 ounces of gold with a reference price of $1285.25/oz (the LBMA PM fix on July 31, 2014) and subsequent tranches, to be filled quarterly, with reference prices based on the LBMA PM fix seven business days prior to the start of the quarter. The subsequent quarterly tranches are to be limited to the value of 270 ounces as calculated from this reference gold price.

The Facility must be repaid on the earliest of: 1) A change of control of the Company; 2) Three months following a declaration of commercial production at Mara Rosa; and 3) July 31, 2019.

The Facility bears a coupon of 12% and interest may be accrued.

In partial consideration of the Facility, the Company will issued 1200 non-transferable common share purchase warrants (the "Warrants") to each Lender for each $1,000 in value advanced in the Initial Drawdown, and 600 Warrants to each Lender for each $1,000 in value advanced in subsequent drawdowns, with each Warrant entitling the holder thereof to acquire one common share in the capital of the Company. Each Warrant has an exercise price of $0.25, being equal to approximately 250% premium over the 20 day VWAP of the Company's common share price as at August 12, 2014. Each Warrant has an expiry date of 36 months from issuance. The Warrants and the common shares underlying the Warrants are subject to a four-month hold period pursuant to Canadian securities laws.

"This Facility consolidates and greatly extends the maturity of our debt. It also provides us with sufficient funding to pursue our goals for the foreseeable future. It does both these things without, apart from the very modest warrant issue, struck well above market, the issuance of equity. We are keenly focussed on preserving and enhancing underlying shareholder value and in this very high cost-of-capital environment for gold developers, we are pleased to have structured a financing mechanism that does not dilute our shareholders in any substantially material way." commented Buddy Doyle, CEO of Amarillo.

A similar facility is now being drafted for creditors of the Company who are also insiders of the Company. Terms are expected to be identical except for the initial gold reference price.

The gold loan and the issuance of the Warrants are subject to the customary final approval conditions of the TSX-V.

About Amarillo Gold Corp.

Amarillo Gold Corp. is focused on acquisition, discovery, and definition of gold resources in Brazil. The Company's principal projects are the Mara Rosa Project in the state of Goias, and the Lavras do Sul Project in the state of Rio Grande do Sul. The Posse Deposit at Mara Rosa contains 1,174,900 ounces of measured and indicated gold contained in 20.85 MT at 1.75 g/t Au, and 156,400 ounces of gold inferred from 3.63 MT at 1.38 g/t Au (0.5 g/t cut-off grade) (NI 43-101 compliant resource as independently determined by Australian Exploration Field Services Pty. AEFS). The Mara Rosa Gold Project has received a positive economic assessment from a Pre-feasibility study and is preparing to proceed to a bankable feasibility study.

The Posse Deposit was successfully mined by Western Mining Company (WMC) during the 1990s (mined areas are excluded from the above-stated resource figures), and is located in an area of excellent infrastructure: approximately 35 km NE of Yamana's Chapada open pit Cu-Au operation, some 80 km NE of Yamana's Pilar Au project (in Feasibility), 95 km NW of Votarintim's Niquelandia Ni laterite mine, 105 km from NE of Serra Grande's underground Au mine, and 105 km NNW of Anglo American's Ni laterite project at Barro Alto.

The Lavras do Sul Project is an advanced exploration stage property (190 sq. km.) comprising more than 19 prospects centred on historic gold workings, with encouraging gold mineralization discovered and defined by more than 16,000 metres of drilling. The initial resource estimate at the Butia prospect reported 215,000 ounces of gold indicated from 6.4 MT at 1.05 g/t Au, and 308,000 ounces of gold inferred from 12.9 MT at 0.74 g/t Au using a0.3 g/t cut-off grade in a NI 43-101 compliant resource as independently determined by Atticus Consulting 2010. Lavras do Sul is also located near excellent infrastructure. The Company also has a portfolio of earlier stage projects and all properties under Amarillo's management are located in areas of good infrastructure and mining-friendly communities.
