TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 15, 2010) - Xtierra Inc. (TSX VENTURE:XAG) ("Xtierra" or the "Company"), announces it has closed the third and final tranche of a previously announced (January 19, 2010) non brokered private placement for additional gross proceeds of $700,000 consisting of 3,500,000 units ("Units") at $0.20 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one common share and one-half of a common share purchase warrant, with each whole warrant entitling the holder to purchase one common share at $0.30 for a term of one year.

An aggregate of 2,058,824 shares and 1,029,412 warrants have been placed in escrow with Equity Transfer & Trust Company as escrow agent. Shares will be released from escrow over an 18 month period.

Proceeds of this issue, together with the $3.955 million raised in the first tranche closed on March 1, 2010, and $500,000 closed on April 1, 2010 will be used by Xtierra to fund further metallurgical testing and feasibility work on Xtierra's Bilbao silver‐zinc‐copper project in Zacatecas, Mexico, and for expenses of the offering, general corporate purposes and working capital.
