Vancouver, Canada / TheNewswire / December 11, 2017 - Guyana Goldstrike Inc. (the "Company" or "Guyana Goldstrike") (TSXV: GYA, OTC: GYNAF, FSE: 1ZT) is pleased to announce it has completed the first tranche of a private placement for gross proceeds of $200,000. In connection with completion of the private placement, the Company issued 666,667 units (each, a "Unit") at a price of $0.30 per Unit. Each "Unit" consists of one common share of the Company and one-half-of-one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each "Warrant" is exercisable to acquire an additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.40 for a period of twenty-four months, subject to accelerated expiry in the event the closing price of the Company's common shares is $0.75 or greater for ten consecutive trading days.
The board of directors of the Company has approved further tranches of the private placement to raise gross proceeds of up to $1,000,000 through the issuance of up to 3,333,334 Units. In connection with completion of this first tranche, the Company paid finders' fees of $4,500 and issued 15,000 broker warrants to an arms' length finder who introduced a subscriber to the placement. Each broker warrant is exercisable on the same terms as the Warrants.
All securities issued in connection with the placement are subject to a four-month-and-one-day statutory hold period. Completion of further tranches of the placement remains subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
In connection with closing of the private placement, Cambrian Capital Corp. ("Cambrian"), a holding company controlled by Charles Hugh Maddin, acquired 500,000 Units, consisting of 500,000 common shares of the Company, and 250,000 Warrants.

Mr. Maddin and Cambrian would have ownership and control of 6,734,250 common shares of the Company, representing approximately 17.3% of the then issued and outstanding common shares of the Company, assuming exercise of only the warrants and options held by each.
