West Vancouver, British Columbia – August 24, 2016 – Magnum Goldcorp Inc. (the “Company” or “Magnum”) – Further to the Company’s news releases of May 11, 2016, June 22, 2016, July 16, 2016 and August 5, 2016, Magnum is pleased to announce that it has closed the second tranche of its flow through and non-flow through non-brokered private placement.  Under the first tranche, the Company raised $51,500 by the issuance of 562,500 flow through shares (the “FT Shares”) at $0.08 per FT Share and 100,000 non-flow through units (the “NFT Units”) at $0.065 per NFT Unit, and under the second tranche, the Company has raised an additional $132,600 by the issuance of 2,040,000 NFT Units. Each NFT Unit consists of one common share and one share purchase warrant, with each warrant entitling the holder to purchase an additional common share for a period of 2 years at an exercise price of $0.10. Finder’s Fees in the amount of $650 were paid in NFT Units (10,000 NFT Units at $0.065 per NFT Unit) in connection with the non-flow through private placement.  All the securities issued pursuant to the second tranche of the private placement are subject to a hold period expiring December 25, 2016.

An Insider of the Company has subscribed for NFT Units under the private placement.  The issuance of NFT Units to the insider pursuant to the private placement (the “Insider Participation”) will be considered to be a related party transaction within the meaning of TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”). The Company intends to rely on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in Sections 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(b) of MI 61-101 in respect of any Insider Participation.

The proceeds from this private placement will be used for Magnum’s 2016 exploration program on its “LH Property” and for general working capital. The LH Property is a gold exploration property consisting of 19 contiguous crown granted claims and 7 mineral claims, located approximately 7 km south of Silverton, British Columbia, on the east side of Slocan Lake. As announced April 27, 2016, Magnum now owns 100% of the LH Property.  See the Company’s website (www.magnumgoldcorp.com) for recent news releases and technical report information regarding Magnum’s LH Property project.
