FISSION ENERGY CORP. ("Fission" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:FIS) announces that it has completed the first tranche of a non-brokered private placement to raise up to $3 million from the sale of common share units and $2 million from the sale of flow-through share units, as announced on May 28, 2009. A total of $2,008,880.95 was raised from the first closing, which includes $1,259,400 from the sale of 4,198,000 common share units and $749,480.95 from the sale of 2,141,374 flow-through units. The second closing will complete shortly.

The Common Share Units are priced at $.30 per common share unit and the Flow-Through Common Share Units are priced at $.35 per unit. Each Common Share Unit consists of one common share and one common share purchase warrant exercisable at $.40 for a period of two years. Each Flow-Through Common Share Unit consists of one flow-through common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. One full warrant purchases one common share at $.45 for a period of two years.

A cash finder's fee of 8% of the gross proceeds raised in the offering will be paid and the Company will grant the finder a two year option to purchase shares at $.30 per share based on 8% of the units sold in the offering.

The Common Shares and Flow-Through Shares will be subject to resale restrictions for a period of four months ending October 31, 2009.

The net proceeds of the offering of Flow-Through Shares will be used to incur eligible Canadian exploration expenses, which will be renounced in favor of the purchasers for the 2009 taxation year. The net proceeds from the sale of the Common Shares will be used to advance development of the Company's properties and for general working capital.
