Midway Gold Corp. ("Midway" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:MDW) (NYSE MKT:MDW)
announces that, further to its news release dated June 25, 2012, it has entered
into an underwriting agreement with a syndicate of underwriters co-led by RBC
Capital Markets and Haywood Securities Inc. and including Stifel Nicolaus Canada
Inc. (collectively, the "Underwriters"), whereby the Underwriters have agreed to
purchase 11,750,000 units (the "Units") at a price of US$1.28 per Unit for gross
proceeds of US$15,040,000 (the "Offering"). Each Unit consists of one common
share of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each
whole warrant (a "Warrant") will entitle the holder to purchase one common share
of the Company for a period of 18 months following the closing of the Offering
(the "Closing") at a price of US$1.85. The Company can accelerate the expiry of
the Warrants to a date 30 days after giving notice to the holders thereof in the
event the Company's common shares trade at a closing price on the NYSE MKT of
greater than US$2.10 for a period of 20 consecutive trading days following the
Closing.


The Company has granted the Underwriters an over-allotment option (the
"Over-Allotment Option") to purchase additional Units and/or additional Warrants
on the same terms as the Offering, in an amount equal to up to 15% of the number
of Units sold pursuant to the Offering, exercisable at any time up to 30 days
from and including the Closing. If the Over-Allotment Option is exercised in
full, the total gross proceeds to Midway will be US$17,296,000. 


Closing is expected to occur on or about July 6, 2012 and is subject to receipt
of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture
Exchange and the NYSE MKT. 


Midway intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to advance its projects
and for general corporate purposes (including property maintenance fees) as
detailed in the Company's final prospectus supplement relating to the Offering
(the "Prospectus Supplement").
