Toronto, Ontario CANADA, Jan 23, 2006 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Probe Mines Limited (PRB - TSX Venture), The Directors of PROBE MINES LIMITED are pleased to announce a proposed non-brokered private placement financing of up to $1,500,000 comprising the sale of up to 2,000,000 Units, to be sold at $0.75 per Unit, subject to regulatory approval and closing. Each Unit consists of one common share, one-half of one Series A common share purchase warrant and one-half of one series B common share purchase warrant. Each whole Series A Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share for $1.25 until September 30, 2006. Each whole Series B Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share for $1.50 until March 31, 2007. The Series B Warrants may not be exercised until the corresponding Series A Warrant is exercised. Up to 1.6 million Units will be issued on a flow-through basis. All securities issued in conjunction with the offering will be subject to a hold period, which expires four months after closing.
Proceeds of the financing will be used to fund a 2006 exploration on the McFauld's Lake Project which will include a winter program of approximately 2,000 meters of diamond core drilling on the McFauld's Lake Project, and 3,000 meters of diamond core drilling on the Double Eagle Joint Venture, expected to commence by no later than mid-February. Drilling on the McFauld's Lake Project will concentrate on the recent high-grade copper volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) discovery identified in October, 2005, and the two high-priority targets delineated 600m to the south and 1200m to the north, which were identified in the recently completed InfiniTEM geophysical survey. Drilling on the Double Eagle Project will concentrate on the first 15 of at least 45 drill-ready bedrock conductors, most of which are markedly similar to those associated with known VMS deposits.
Options in respect of 650,000 shares, exercisable at 0.75 per share for a five-year term were granted on January 23, 2006 to directors. The options were granted pursuant to Probe's stock option plan and are subject to shareholder approval.
