VANCOUVER, BC, April 24, 2006 – Mirasol Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:MRZ) (“the Company”) is pleased to report that it has closed a previously announced brokered private placement of 5 million units at a price of $0.50 per unit for gross proceeds of $2,500,000 (news release dated March 14, 2006).
Each unit consists of one common share and one-half of one share purchase warrant. One whole warrant shall be exercisable at a price of $0.75 per share for a period of eighteen months from closing. In the event the trading price closes at or above $1.20 for 20 consecutive trading days in the period commencing four months after the closing date, the Company will have the right to accelerate the expiry date of the warrants to the date which is 30 days after notice is give to the shareholders.
Haywood Securities Inc. acted as its exclusive agent for the sale of the units. The Company paid a cash commission and issued agents warrants equal to 7% of the number of units sold. Each Agent’s warrant will entitle Haywood to acquire an additional common share at $0.50 per share for a period of eighteen months from the date of closing. A four month hold period is applicable to all of the securities issued by the Company.
The net proceeds will be used to fund the Company’s exploration programs in Argentina and elsewhere, and for general working capital.
