Amseco Closes $403,200 Private Placement

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Dec. 31, 2009) - Amseco Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:AEL) ("Amseco") is pleased to announce that it has completed, on December 30, 2009, a $403,200 Non-Brokered Private Placement. Subject to regulatory approvals Amseco will issue 672 units of $600 each. The units each consist of four thousand (4,000) common flow-through and one thousand (1,000) common treasury shares at a price of $0.12 per share. The Corporation will issue 325,000 Agent's Options giving the holder the right to acquire one share for each Option at a price of $0.12 for 24 months from the date of Closing.

Jean Desmarais, President, and Roger Bourgault and Reynald Couillard, both Directors, each participated in the Private Placement in amounts of $36,000, $3,000 and $30,000 respectively.

The Private Placement was completed under the terms of a price protection request which was submitted to the TSX Venture Exchange on December 14, 2009 when the share price of the Company was then at $0.10 per share. The units to be issued under the Private Placement will be subject to a resale restriction of four months and one day.

From the $403,200 proceeds from the Private Placement, $322,560 will be for Canadian Exploration Expense purposes to be used on the Corporation's various exploration projects and $80,640 will be used for general working capital purposes.

The Corporation is currently reviewing its property portfolio. Amseco will soon resume exploration and mining property development activities. Once the exploration activity decisions are made they will be the object of a separate press release which will outline the specific proposed work. A yet undetermined portion of the flow-through funds will be invested on the Malartic property which was the object of the signature of a Letter of Intent leading to a formal Joint-Venture Agreement with Les Mines JAG ("JML"). A separate amount will be invested on Amseco's Urban West property continuing work already performed there over the last 18 months.
