Alpha Gold Closes Flow-Through Private Placement

COQUITLAM, BC, Aug. 18 /CNW/ - Alpha Gold Corporation (TSX-V: ALQ) ("Alpha Gold" or the "Company") announced today the closing of a Flow-Through ("FT Units") Private Placement of 1,480,000 Units at a price of C$0.09 per Unit for gross proceeds of C$124,200.00.

"The decision to close the financing at this juncture after the first tranche closed in May was made in light of the cooling in the market for junior exploration financings. The Company remains in good financial shape and we are moving ahead with the 2010 exploration program. Another financing will be reconsidered once market sentiment returns to more favorable conditions," commented Richard Whatley, CEO of Alpha Gold Corporation.

Each Flow-Through Unit at C$0.09 consists of one common share and one non-Flow-Through share purchase warrant with a term of 24 months, and an exercise price of $0.25 in year one and $0.35 in year two.

First Canadian Securities(R) received a cash finder's fee of 7% (no GST payable), and finder's fee options equal to 7% of the number of units subscribed for at the Unit price of $0.09, for a term of two years (with each unit consisting of a common share and a share purchase warrant with the same terms as the unit Warrant mentioned above). First Canadian Securities was paid an additional due diligence fee of 0.5 %, plus GST.

Completion of the private placement is subject to acceptance by applicable securities regulatory authorities including the TSX Venture Exchange.

Accounting for this closing Alpha Gold Corporation has approximately 47.2 million shares issued and outstanding, 59.3 million fully diluted. Shares are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol "ALQ".
