ELKO, Nevada, Nov. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Gold Corp. (NASDAQ: USAU) ("U.S. Gold" or the "Company") today announced that, it has entered into an At-the-Market Offering Agreement (the "ATM Agreement") with H.C. Wainwright & Co., LLC ("Wainwright") as sales manager. Under the terms of the ATM Agreement, the Company will be entitled to sell, at its sole discretion and from time to time as it may choose, common shares in the capital of the Company ("Shares") through Wainwright, with such sales having an aggregate gross sales value of up to US$1.0 million (the "Offering"). The ATM Agreement will remain in full force and effect until the earlier of July 31, 2019, or the date that the ATM Agreement is terminated in accordance with the terms therein.
Sales of Shares, if any, will be made through distributions directly on the NASDAQ or other established United States trading market. The Shares will be distributed at the market prices prevailing at the time of sale. As a result, prices of Shares sold under the Offering, if any, may vary between purchasers and distributions.
The Offering will be made by way of a prospectus supplement dated November 2, 2018 (the "Prospectus Supplement") to the base prospectus contained in the Company's existing U.S. shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-217860) (the "Registration Statement"), which became effective May 16, 2017. The Prospectus Supplement and the base prospectus have been filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") and is, together with the related Registration Statement, available on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov. Alternatively, Wainwright will provide copies of these documents upon request by contacting H.C. Wainwright & Co., LLC, 430 Park Avenue, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10022 at [email protected].
The Company believes that its existing working capital, coupled with potential future sources of non-dilutive financing will be sufficient to cover its fixed costs and project activities. This ATM Agreement is a low-cost means of providing additional balance sheet flexibility; however, the Company is under no obligation to exercise its right to sell Shares under the ATM Agreement. If market conditions improve significantly and Shares are sold, U.S. Gold intends to use the net proceeds for general corporate and working capital purposes.
The Company will pay Wainwright a commission equal to 3.0% of the gross sales price from sales, if any, of the Shares sold under the Offering.
This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities, nor will there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.

Cautionary Note to U.S. Investors Concerning Mineral Resources
We may use certain terms on this press release, which are defined in Canadian Institute of Metallurgy guidelines, the guidelines widely followed to comply with Canadian National Instrument 43-101-- Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101"). We advise U.S. investors that these terms are not recognized by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). However, the SEC normally only permits issuers to report mineralization that does not constitute "reserves" by SEC standards as in place tonnage and grade without reference to unit measures. Note that a preliminary economic assessment is preliminary in nature, and it includes Inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied that would enable them to be classified as mineral reserves, and there is no certainty that the preliminary assessment will be realized.
