(TSX VENTURE:PEM) ("Premium") reports that it anticipates its previously announced private placement may be oversubscribed by approximately $160,000 (1,600,000 units).

Each Warrant will be exercisable for a period of two years at a price of $0.20 in the first year and $0.50 in the second year.

The proceeds from the placement will be used for production permitting on the Buffalo Gulch gold project, exploration drilling on the high grade gold zone at the Friday-Petsite property; an NI 43-101 Inferred gold resource of 531,890 troy ounces, contained in 15.17 million tonnes averaging 1.1 g/t gold (0.032 oz/ton) at a cutoff of 0.514 gram per metric tonne (0.017 oz/ton); and general working capital.
