Vancouver, British Columbia – May 15, 2017 – Asante Gold Corporation (CSE:ASE/ FRANKFURT:1A9/OTC:ASGOF) (“Asante Gold” or the “Company”) announces its intention to complete an exploration campaign and working capital private placement (“Private Placement”) of up to 5,000,000 units of the Company at $0.10 per unit (each a “Unit”) for aggregate gross proceeds of $500,000.

Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one full transferrable Common Share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional Common Share at an exercise price of $0.15 for twelve (12) months from the closing date of the Private Placement. Finder’s fees may be payable on a portion of the offering. All securities purchased under this offering will be subject to a four month and one day hold period.

Certain directors and officers of the Company may participate in the private placement. Any such participation would be considered to be a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”). The transaction would be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of any units issued to or the consideration paid by such persons would not exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.

On behalf of the Board,
