Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - April 9, 2021) - Golden Independence Mining Corp. (CSE: IGLD) (OTCQB: GIDM) (FSE: 6NN) (the "Company" or "IGLD") announces it completed the previously-announced non-brokered private placement for gross proceeds of $2,800,000 (the "Private Placement").

The financing resulted in the issuance of 11,200,000 units (each a "Unit") at a price of $0.25 per Unit. Each Unit is comprised of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.42 per share for a period of two years from the date of issuance.

In connection with the Private Placement, the Company paid aggregate cash finders' fees of $59,285 and issued an aggregate of 263,040 finder warrants (the "Finder Warrants") to eligible finders, with the Finder Warrants having the same terms and conditions as the Warrants.

Insiders of the Company purchased an aggregate of 304,200 Units in the Private Placement. The Company has relied on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101") contained in sections 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 in respect of such insider participation.

All securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to a four-month hold period from the date of issuance. Completion of the Private Placement is subject to the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange.

None of the Shares or Warrants have been or will be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the securities laws of any state of the United States, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of the securities, in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would require registration or otherwise be unlawful.
