TORONTO, Dec. 21, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xtra-Gold Resources Corp. ( "Xtra-Gold" or the "Company") – (TSX:XTG) (OTCBB:XTGR) announces the completion of the non-brokered private placement financing announced on December 3, 2012. The Company has sold 1,929,000 Units at $0.85 per Unit for gross proceeds of $1,639,650. Each Unit consists of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole common share purchase warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share for $1.00 for a period of 24 months from the closing. All securities issued in conjunction with the offering are subject to a hold period, which expires four months after closing.

Proceeds of the financing will be used to accelerate exploration on Zone 5, the Company's newly discovered high-grade shear zone at its Kibi Project in Ghana, West Africa which was announced in a new release dated November 12, 2012, to fund exploration on the Company's other mining areas in Ghana and for working capital.

The participation in the private placement by certain "related parties" of the Company, namely certain insiders of the Company constitutes a "related party transaction" as such terms are defined by Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"), requiring the Company, in the absence of exemptions, to obtain a formal valuation for, and minority shareholder approval of, the "related party transaction".  The Company is relying on the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements of MI 61-101 pursuant to which a formal valuation and minority approval are not required in the event that at the time the transaction is agreed to, neither the fair market value of the subject matter of, nor the fair market value of the consideration for, the transaction, insofar as it involves interested parties, exceeds 25 per cent of the Company's market capitalization.  The related parties acquired a total of 60,000 Units of the private placement for gross proceeds of $51,000.  The participation by each of the related parties in the private placement was approved by directors of the Company who are independent of such related parties.

This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of, the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.  The securities described herein have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act"), or any U.S. state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to U.S. persons except in compliance with the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable U.S. state securities laws or pursuant to an exemption therefrom.
