VANCOUVER, May 26, 2011 /CNW/ - Jet Gold Corp. (TSX-V: JAU) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the closing of a non-brokered private placement with the MineralFields Group of 2,954,545 flow-through units ("FT Units") at a price of $0.22 per FT Unit for total proceeds of $650,000. Each FT Unit consists of one flow-through common share and one non-flow-through share purchase warrant with a term of 24 months and an exercise price of $0.25, and is subject to a hold period until September 14, 2011.

In connection with the private placement, the Company paid a cash finder's fee of 6% of the gross proceeds and issued options to acquire units equal to 10% of the number of FT Units subscribed for to Limited Market Dealer Inc. Each option has a term of 24 months, is subject to a hold period until September 14, 2011, and entitles the holder to purchase one unit at an exercise price of $0.25 in year 1 and $0.35 in year 2. Each unit consists of one common share and one share purchase warrant with a term of 24 months and an exercise price of $0.35 in year 1 and $0.45 in year 2.

The completion of the private placement and the payment of the finder's fees remain subject to the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The proceeds of the flow-through financing will be used to conduct exploration on the Company's Big Hammer gold/tellurium property located SE of Terrace, British Columbia and also a work program on the company's Kshish molybdenum property located NE of Terrace. The Company expects to start the exploration of both properties with an airborne survey over both claim groups in June.  Ground exploration of sampling, geological mapping and trenching is expected to follow on the Big Hammer property.  Exploration work on the Kshish property is expected to begin in late June or early July depending on ground conditions.

Brad J. Moynes, President of the Company stated, "We are very pleased to be entering into this relationship with the MineralFields Group.  This financing is an important milestone in the growth of the Company and we look forward to working with MineralFields as we develop our holdings in the Big Hammer and the Kshish properties."
