VANCOUVER, BC, Jan. 22, 2024 /PRNewswire/ - International Tower Hill Mines Ltd. (the "Company") - (TSX: ITH) (NYSE American: THM) today announced that it has completed a non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") pursuant to which it has issued common shares to existing major shareholders to raise gross proceeds of approximately USD $2.5 million.

The Private Placement consisted of 3,807,911 common shares of the Company, representing approximately 1.9% of the 195.9 million common shares issued and outstanding prior to the completion of the Private Placement, at a price of USD$0.664 per common share, the closing price of the Company's common shares on the NYSE American on January 12, 2024.  The Private Placement was taken up by current institutional shareholders of the Company, Paulson & Co. Inc., Sprott Asset Management USA, Inc., and Kopernik Global Investors, LLC on behalf of Heptagon plc Kopernik Global All-Cap Equity Fund. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Private Placement for general working capital purposes. Following completion of the Private Placement, the Company has 199,693,442 common shares issued and outstanding.

Karl Hanneman, Chief Executive Officer, said "This modest financing was completed with respect for our current shareholders to minimize dilution and reflects our low G&A expenses as we position the Livengood Gold Project to respond to a strong gold market.  We remain appreciative of our major shareholders who recognize the great leverage that the Livengood Gold Project offers in a rising gold market, given the size of the gold resource, its unique and positive fundamentals, and our land status and proximity to Fairbanks."

The Private Placement has received the required regulatory approvals including approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange and the NYSE American. All common shares issued in the Private Placement are subject to a hold period in Canada of four months and one day from the closing of the Private Placement. All common shares issued in the United States will be subject to resale restrictions under U.S. federal and state securities laws.
