Vancouver, Canada: Radius Gold Inc. (TSX-V: RDU) announces that as a result of its participation in a private placement in Medgold Resources Corp. ("Medgold"), it has acquired for a purchase price of $500,000 direct ownership of 5,000,000 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.10 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one common share of Medgold and one warrant to purchase an additional common share of Medgold exercisable at a price of $0.15 per share for two years. As a result of this transaction, and assuming the exercise of the warrants in full, Radius Gold would own 10.0 million common shares, which would represent 25.1% of the then issued and outstanding common shares of Medgold. However, the warrants have a restriction on exercise such that Radius may only exercise at any given time the number of Warrants that will not result in Radius owning 20% or more of Medgold's outstanding common shares
The shares were acquired by Radius for investment purposes, and it may from time to time, directly or indirectly, acquire additional securities of Medgold. Radius has filed on www.sedar.com a report in accordance with NI 62-103, and a copy of the report may be obtained by contacting Radius at the address noted below.
