VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 25, 2010) - Arco Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ARR) ("Arco" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed the first tranche of its non-brokered private placement announced on February 11, 2010. The first tranche consisted of 12,350,000 units at a price of $0.05 per unit for total gross proceeds of $617,500.

All securities issued with respect to the first tranche of the placement are subject to a four month hold period expiring on July 25, 2010, in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") and the provisions of the Securities Act (British Columbia).

The units each consist of one common share and one non-transferable share purchase warrant (the "Warrants") exercisable for an additional common share at a price of $0.10 for two years from the date of issue. All warrants issued are subject to an acceleration provision wherein if the Company's shares trade at or above the weighted average trading price of $0.20 for 20 consecutive trading days (after all hold periods expire), the Company will give notice via a news release that the warrants will expire 30 days from the date of such news release.

Arco has agreed to pay qualified parties a finder's fee in cash equal to 7.5% of the total proceeds invested by subscribers introduced to Arco by such parties, subject to the approval of the Exchange. Each qualified finder will also receive a non-transferable warrant (the "Finder's Warrant") entitling them to purchase that number of Arco common shares equal to 10% of the total number of Units purchased by subscribers introduced to Arco by such parties. Each Finder's Warrant will have terms and conditions similar to that of the Warrants issued under the private placement. In connection with the closing of the first tranche, Arco has agreed to pay a total of $21,750 in cash and issue 560,000 Finder's Warrants.

The proceeds of the private placement will be used to fund additional exploration work on Arco's Taviche, Predilecta, Cuatro Venados and Tres Hermanas properties (see our news releases dated February 9th and February 1st, 2010, respectively) and for general working capital.
