Western Copper and Gold Corporation (“Western” or the “Company”) (TSX: WRN; NYSE American: WRN) announces that it plans to conduct a non-brokered private placement of up to 2,608,696 units (the “Units”) at a price of $1.15 per Unit to raise gross proceeds of up to $3.0 million (the “Private Placement”).
Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (a “Share”) and half of one non-transferable warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional Share at a price of $1.75 for a period of 24 months from closing.
