Highway 50 Gold Upsizes Previously Announced Private Placement

Vancouver, British Columbia -- Highway 50 Gold Corp. (TSX.V -- HWY)

Highway 50 Gold Corp. ("Highway 50" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has increased the size of its previously announced non-brokered private placement of units (the "Offering") from $900,000 to $1,200,000. Upon closing of the Offering, the Company will issue up to 3,428,571 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.35 per Unit. Each Unit will consist of one common share ("Common Share") in the capital of the Company and one half of one warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase an additional Common Share at a price of $0.45 until the second anniversary of the closing date of the Offering. The proceeds of the Offering are expected to be used towards field work at the Gold Knob project, and for general working capital purposes. Gold Knob is located 100 km west of the Cortez Mining District and exhibits deep crustal structural characteristics similar to those observed at Cortez.

The Offering is scheduled to close on or about July 27, 2021, and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"). The Units to be issued under this Offering will be offered by way of private placement exemptions in various provinces of Canada as well as outside of Canada, pursuant to applicable exemptions and in the United States on a private placement basis pursuant to exemptions from the registration requirements of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The Company may pay a finder's fee of up to 6% cash and 6% compensation warrants to qualified finders in respect of portions of the Offering, subject to the acceptance of the Exchange. The securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a four-month hold period in accordance with applicable securities laws and the rules of the Exchange.

Management of the Company has indicated that they intend to participate in the Offering. Any such participation would be considered a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101. The Company expects to rely on certain exemptions in MI 61-101 based on the size of the Offering in connection therewith.

The securities referred to in this news release have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent U.S. registration or an applicable exemption from the U.S. registration requirements.
