The Company's capital raising has allowed the Company to close the Greenwood Project acquisition (see N.R. Sept. 27, 2016) and fund the KRR Acquisition (see N.R. of Oct 18, 2016). This acquisition remains subject to TSX.V approval and due diligence.

Wolf Wiese and the board of directors of Golden Dawn Minerals wish to express their gratitude to The Lind Partners, Marquest Asset Management, EMD Financial and the Company's numerous private investors for the trust afforded to our team, by virtue of their investments. The Company is grateful to the staff of the TSX.V for their guidance and cooperation in the approval process of the rapid acquisitions. The confluence of the cooperation of all the parties has enabled the Company to execute its business plan to date and to evolve from an exploration issuer to what the Company hopes will lead to becoming a small producer of precious metals.
