VANCOUVER, April 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - New Gold Inc. ("New Gold") (TSX and NYSE AMEX:NGD) today announces the closing of its private offering of $300 million aggregate principal amount of 7.0% Senior Notes due 2020 (the "Notes").

The redemption date for the Senior Secured Notes will be May 7, 2012.Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements This news release contains "forward-looking statements" and "forward-looking information" within the meaning of applicable Canadian and U.S. securities legislation.
