TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 1, 2013) -


Klondex Mines Ltd. (TSX:KDX) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has successfully priced the previously announced private placement of special warrants (the "Special Warrants") at a price of C$1.37 per Special Warrant. Through a syndicate of agents, led by GMP Securities L.P., and including MGI Securities Inc., Mackie Research Capital Corporation, M Partners Inc., Euro Pacific Canada Inc., Jones, Gable & Company Limited and PI Financial Corp., the Company has received subscriptions for 14,200,000 Special Warrants for gross proceeds of C$19,454,000 (the "Offering").

Subject to the penalty provision described below, each Special Warrant will entitle the holder to receive upon exercise or deemed exercise following the Qualification Date (as defined below), one common share of the Company ("Common Share") for no additional consideration. The Special Warrants not already exercised will be deemed exercised at the earlier of: (a) the third business day after the date of receipt for a final prospectus to qualify, in each of the provinces of Canada, except Quebec (the "Qualifying Provinces"), the distribution of the Common Shares to be issued upon exercise or deemed exercise of the Special Warrants (the "Qualification Date"); and (b) 4:59 p.m. (Toronto time) on the date which is four months and one day following the closing of the Offering.

The Company shall use reasonable commercial efforts to obtain a receipt for a final short form prospectus to qualify the distribution of the Common Shares by the date that is 45 days from the Closing Date (the "Penalty Date"). If the Company fails to qualify the Common Shares for issuance in the Qualifying Provinces by the Penalty Date, the holders of Special Warrants will be entitled to receive an additional 1% of Common Shares issuable upon the exercise of the Special Warrants for each seven-day period following the Penalty Date in which the Company fails to qualify the distribution of the Common Shares, subject to a maximum aggregate amount of 10% of additional Common Shares.

The net proceeds from the Offering are expected to be used for the development of the Fire Creek gold project in Nevada, USA, for general working capital requirements and for the repayment of debt.

The Offering is expected to close on or about October 16, 2013. Closing of the Offering is subject to certain conditions typical for a transaction of this nature and the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange.
