VANCOUVER, British Columbia and BOISE, Idaho, May 18, 2011 /CNW/ -- Thunder Mountain Gold, Inc. (Company) (TSX-V: THM; OTCQB: THMG), a U.S.-based exploration company focused on discovering and defining high grade, high quality precious and base metal resources in the western U.S., today announced it has opened, subject to the acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange, a non-brokered private placement totaling up to C$4,500,000. These funds will be raised by the Company issuing up to 18,000,000 Units at a price of C$0.25 per unit, each Unit consisting of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share for a two year period following closing at a price of C$0.40 per share at any time until the two year anniversary of closing.

Finder's fees may be payable on a portion of the private placement, in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.

A substantial portion of the net proceeds of the private placement will be used to continue the advancement of the South Mountain Project, as well as the initiation of Thunder Mountain's portion of the Trout Creek/Reese River Valley Nevada Joint Exploration Agreement with Newmont. The balance will be applied for working capital purposes.

A portion of the private placement may be offered only in the United States to Qualified Institutional Buyers (or QIBs) as defined in Rule 144A of the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act) concurrently with the offering in Canada to Accredited Investors pursuant to Regulation S of the Securities Act.

Neither the Units, the common shares, or the warrants comprising the Units or the common shares issuable upon exercise of the units have been registered under the Securities Act. Accordingly, such securities may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.
