Freegold Ventures Limited (TSX: FVL) (‘ Freegold ‘ or the ‘ Company ‘), is pleased to announce that further to its news release of March 8, 2024 the Company has closed its upsized brokered private placement offering for aggregate gross proceeds of $10,000,000 ). Paradigm Capital acted as sole agent (the ‘ Agent ‘) on the Offering.

In connection with the Offering, the Company entered into an agency agreement (the ‘ Agency Agreement ‘) dated March 26, 2024 , between the Company and the Agent. In accordance with the Agency Agreement, 25,000,000 units of the Company (the ‘ Units ‘) were issued at a price of $0.40 per Unit. Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company (a ‘ Unit Share ‘) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant of the Company (each whole warrant, a ‘ Warrant ‘). Each Warrant is exercisable to acquire one common share of the Company (a ‘ Warrant Share ‘) for 24 months from today’s date at an exercise price of $0.52 per Warrant Share.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering to fund exploration activities on the Company’s mineral projects in Alaska , and for general working capital and corporate purposes.

Mr. Eric Sprott , through 2176423 Ontario Ltd., a corporation beneficially owned and controlled by him, acquired 6,750,000 Units in the Offering for total consideration of $2,700,000 . Prior to the Offering, Mr. Sprott beneficially owned or controlled 114,103,056 Shares and 6,875,000 Warrants representing approximately 27.1% of the outstanding Shares on a non-diluted basis and 28.2% on a partially-diluted basis assuming the exercise of such Warrants. Following the completion of the Offering, Mr. Sprott beneficially owns and controls 120,853,056 Shares and 10,250,000 Warrants representing approximately 27.1% of the outstanding Shares on a non-diluted basis and 28.7% on a partially-diluted basis assuming the exercise of such Warrants.

The Units were acquired by Sprott for investment purposes. Mr. Sprott has a long-term view of the investment and may acquire additional securities of Freegold Ventures including on the open market or through private acquisitions or sell securities of Freegold Ventures including on the open market or through private dispositions in the future depending on market conditions, reformulation of plans and/or other relevant factors.

Pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (‘ MI 61-101 ‘), the purchase of Units by Mr. Sprott was a ‘related party transaction’. The Company was exempt from the requirements to obtain a formal valuation in connection with

the Offering in reliance on section 5.5(c) of MI 61-101, as the issuance of Units to Mr. Sprott was a distribution of securities of the Company to a related party for cash consideration. The issuance of the Units to Mr. Sprott was exempt from the requirement to obtain minority shareholder approval in reliance on section 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the Units received by Mr. Sprott nor the proceeds for such securities received by the Company exceeded 25% of the Company’s market capitalization as calculated in accordance with MI 61-101.

A material change report will be filed less than 21 days from the date of the closing of the Offering. Closing the Offering in this shorter period was reasonable in the circumstances as the Company determined the shorter period was necessary because the terms of the transaction were favorable to the Company, given uncertain market conditions time was of the essence in closing the Offering, and closing the Offering expeditiously was in the best interest of the Company and its shareholders.

The Offering is subject to the final approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange. The Units have been offered pursuant to the Listed Issuer Financing Exemption under National Instrument 45-106 – Prospectus Exemptions in all Canadian provinces, except Quebec , and other qualifying jurisdictions.
