LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 11, 2005) - RAB Special

a total of 2,500,000 units (the "Units") of Apogee Minerals Ltd. (TSX

"Private Placement"). Each Unit consists of one common share in the
capital of the Company (a "Share") and one-half (1/2) of one Share

for a period of eighteen (18) months from the Closing Date. The
transaction took place off the market by way of private placement and
closed on February 9, 2005.

Special Situations has ownership of and control over the securities
purchased in the Private Placement. The purchased securities represent
approximately 20.74% of the issued and outstanding Shares on a partially
diluted basis (assuming exercise of the Warrants) ("Partially Diluted
Basis").

Immediately after the Private Placement, Special Situations owned
2,500,000 Shares and 1,250,000 Warrants, representing approximately
20.74% of the issued and outstanding Shares on a Partially Diluted Basis.

Special Situations purchased securities for investment purposes only and
not with the purpose of influencing the control or direction of the
Company. Special Situations together with joint actors, if any, may,
subject to market conditions, make additional investments in or
dispositions of securities of the Company in the future, including
additional purchases of Shares. Special Situations and its joint actors,
if any, do not, however, intend to acquire 20% of any class of the
outstanding voting or equity securities of the Company.
