(PresseBox) - NORDIC GOLD CORP. (TSX-V: NOR)"Nordic" or the "Company" - Fund, LP (?Pandion?).

The mine is a past producer, is fully built and fully permitted. On October 11th, Laiva received written approval for startup. Mining started on August 5th. 1st gold pour is scheduled for November 27th, 2018.

The terms of the Supplemental Tranches are as follows:

PFL will provide US$3,000,000 immediately and another US$4,000,000 in November 2018, subject to conditions precedent, as partial consideration for the purchase of gold under the Pre-Paid Forward Gold Purchase Agreement (as amended, the ?PPF Agreement?) dated November 10, 2017. The Supplemental Tranches will be in addition to the US$20,600,000 provided in December 2017.

Nordic will be obligated to deliver to Pandion an additional scheduled monthly quantity of gold at a price equal to the then-current spot price, less a specified discount.

Required gold deliveries related to the Supplemental Tranches may be reduced or cancelled entirely by Nordic prior to June 30, 2019 through the payment of the full amount of the Supplemental Tranches.

Nordic will use its best efforts to raise US$7,000,000 in a private placement to reduce or cancel the gold deliveries related to the Supplemental Tranches. Executive Chairman, Basil Botha and Chief Executive Officer, Michael Hepworth, will invest an additional $200,000 through a participation in the private placement.

A cash sweep will be added to the PPF Agreement, requiring any cash above a balance of US$2,000,000 from the Company?s operations be used, in part, to reduce the delivery obligations. This will be cancelled upon payment by Nordic of the full amount of the Supplemental Tranches by June 30, 2019.

The start date of gold deliveries under the PPF Agreement has been extended to January 2020 from May 2019.

Nordic announced on September 6

The parties have agreed to remove the entirety of Section 23 of the PPF Agreement, which allowed PFL to elect, in lieu of delivery of 24,000 ounces of gold (from the restart of the Laiva Gold Mine), to exchange such ?gold delivery? for up to 270 million common shares of Nordic (?Nordic Shares?) in increments of 100 ounces of gold equal to 1,125,000 Nordic Shares, subject to PFL restricting such exercise at any time such that it would not, following exercise, own more than 20% of the Nordic Shares.

In return for the removal of Section 23, the parties have agreed to the following:

PFL will be granted a 2.5% net smelter return (?NSR?) on gold production from the Laiva Gold Mine.

PFL will be issued 36.5 million Nordic Shares ? representing 19.99% of the outstanding Nordic Shares following such issue.

Simultaneous with any subsequent equity raise by the Company, until the Company has raised CA$10,000,000 in equity, PFL will be issued sufficient common shares to maintain PFL?s ownership stake in the Company at 19.99%.

Nordic will make a payment of US$1,500,000 to PFL within six months of entering into the amendment to the PPF Agreement.

The foregoing amendments have been given provisional approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The PPF Agreement includes provisions for early buy back.

Michael Hepworth, President and Chief Executive Officer said, ?The gold forward sale initially enabled our small company with a market cap of around $3,000,000 to acquire a high-value, fully-built and permitted mine for around $25,000,000. The previous owners, Nordic Mines AB, invested ?220,000,000 to build the Laiva Gold Mine. In addition, there is a US$155,000,000 tax loss carry-forward provision in place that the Finnish government has already approved for Nordic?s use should the company accrue taxable income.?

?Our financing options have significantly increased, now that the project is largely de-risked, and first gold is scheduled to be poured on November 27th, 2018.

Nordic is already in discussion with several banks and several potential strategic investors, with regard to a refinancing. The goal is to have such financing in place by May 2019.

The Company also amended the terms of its non-brokered private placement, announced on September 6, 2018. Specifically, Nordic announced that it intends to reprice the previously announced private placement to raise up to $10,000,000 in gross proceeds.

All announcements in this press release remain subject to the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange. The securities issued under the private placement will be subject to a four month hold period under applicable Canadian securities laws.
