CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 10, 2009) - DOT Resources Ltd.

Each FT Unit shall consist of one flow-through common share and one non-flow-through common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant shall be exercisable into one common share of the Corporation for a period of two years from closing of the financing, at a price of C$0.10 per share in year one and at C$0.12 in year two. The private placement is subject to regulatory body approval.

Of the maximum amount to be raised, it is anticipated that the MineralFields Group will subscribe for C$500,000 through the sale of 8,333,333 FT Units.

The Corporation will pay a cash finder's fee equal to 6% of the FT Units subscribed for as well as a finder's fee option in the form of compensation units ("Compensation Units") equal to 10% of the number of FT Units subscribed for other than in respect of FT Units subscribed for by insiders of the Corporation and their close friends and business associates. Each option shall be exercisable at a price of C$0.06 into one Compensation Unit for a period of two years from the date of closing. Each Compensation Unit will consist of one non-flow-through common share and one non-flow-through share purchase warrant.
