    (TSX.V: TLG)

    RICHMOND, BC, Sept. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - Tagish Lake Gold Corp. (TSX-V: TLG)
("Tagish" or "the Company") announces that it is undertaking a non-brokered
$1.7 million private placement offering of flow-through share units (the
"Units") at a subscription price of C$0.17 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one
"flow-through" common share in the capital of the Company and one-half of one
non-transferable common share purchase warrant, each whole warrant entitling
the holder to acquire one additional common share at a price of C$0.25 per
share for eighteen (18) months from the date of issuance.
    The funds will be used for a 5,000 m diamond drilling program to test the
extensions of the Rainbow Two and Berg zones above the 1400 m elevation and
below the 1200 m elevation. The anticipated proceeds of the flow-through
offering will be used for eligible Canadian Exploration Expenses ("CEE") as
defined in subsection 66.1(6) of the Income Tax Act (Canada) on the Company's
Skukum Creek gold-silver deposit.
    Completion of this proposed private placement will be subject to the
negotiation, execution and delivery of definitive subscription agreements, TSX
Venture Exchange acceptance of the proposed subscribers and documentation
related to the offering. Any securities to be issued with will be subject to a
hold period of four months from the closing date in accordance with the rules
and policies of the TSX Venture Exchange and applicable Canadian securities
    In connection with the flow-through offering the Company has agreed with
certain eligible registrants to pay a finders' fee in cash of 8% of the
proceeds raised from participating subscribers introduced to the Company by
such registrants and grant finders' warrants on terms similar to those
included in the flow-through share units equal to 8% of the Units subscribed
by such subscribers.
