VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Feb 12, 2016) - Newmarket Gold Inc. ("Newmarket Gold" or the "Company") (TSX:NMI)(OTCQX:NMKTF) today announced that on March 30, 2016 (the "Redemption Date") it intends to redeem in full all of its then outstanding convertible unsecured debentures due April 30, 2018 (the "Debentures") in accordance with the provisions of the indenture dated as of April 5, 2013, as supplemented and amended by the first supplemental indenture dated as of July 10, 2015 (together, the "Indenture"), in each case between the Corporation and Equity Financial Trust Company (the "Trustee").

The redemption price for the Debentures shall be 100% of the aggregate outstanding principal amount ("Redemption Price"), together with accrued and unpaid interest up to, but excluding, the Redemption Date.
