("U.S. Gold," the "Company," "we," "our" or "us") (NASDAQ: USAU), is pleased to announce that it has closed the previously announced registered direct offering with an institutional investor for the purchase and sale of an aggregate of 870,000 shares of common shares of the Company at $5.75 per share, and accompanying warrants to purchase 870,000 shares of the Company's common stock at an exercise price of $6.16 per share.
