DENVER, Oct. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Discovery Gold Corporation (OTCQB: DCGD) ("Discovery Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has completed a series of capital restructuring transactions involving the conversion of liabilities totalling $394,387 into 3,120,749 restricted shares of its common stock. As the result of these transactions, approximately 72% of the Company's outstanding debts have been satisfied in full. No free-trading shares of the Company were issued as part of these transactions.
"The completion of this restructuring and clearing nearly three-quarters of the Company's debts is a very important step forward as we prepare to advance the next stage of gold exploration at Edum Banso in Ghana. We also appreciate the strong vote of confidence this represents from our largest stakeholders and insiders that participated in the restructuring strategy," stated David Cutler, CFO of Discovery Gold. "We are confident that this increase in our equity base results in a stronger, more transparent balance sheet and that we are better positioned to raise new capital, advance the Edum Banso Gold Project, and take advantage of potential new opportunities."
The Company anticipates that further details regarding exploration plans and schedules for the Edum Banso Gold Project will be released shortly.
