VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 11, 2009) -


Kaminak Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:KAM) today announced a non-brokered, private placement offering ("Offering") of 2,222,222 units ("Units") at a price of $0.45 per unit, for total gross proceeds of $1,000,000 CDN.

"Kaminak is strategically financing through hard dollars to strengthen the company's balance sheet," stated Rob Carpenter, Kaminak's President and CEO. "These funds will be used to accelerate our White Gold and Thunder Bay work programs and will allow us to aggressively pursue new project acquisitions at minimal dilution to shareholders."

Each Unit sold will consist of one (1.0) common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each whole common share purchase warrant will be exercisable into one common share for a period of 24 months from closing at a price of $0.55 per share in the first 12 months and $0.70 per share in the subsequent 12 months. All securities issued in the private placement will be subject to a four-month hold period from the closing of the private placement.

The warrants will be subject to an acceleration clause, whereby, if the weighted average trading price of the Corporation's shares on the Exchange is at a price greater than $0.10 above the strike price of a whole common share purchase warrant for a period of 10 consecutive trading days, the Corporation will have the right to accelerate the expiry date of the warrants. The Corporation will give written notice to the holders of the warrants that the warrants will expire within 30 days of the date notice provided by the Corporation to the warrant holders. Such notice by the Corporation to the holders of the warrants may not be given until 4 months and one day after the Closing. The Offering is subject to certain conditions, including regulatory acceptance.
