Vancouver, B.C. - Otis Gold Corp. (“Otis” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it is issuing 4,829,000 common shares for gross proceeds of $1,690,150. The common shares are being issued subject to the terms of forced conversion notices sent to certain warrant holders on October 2, 2009, pursuant to the terms of warrants issued as part of a unit private placement completed in July 2009.
