Adanac Announces $15 Million Equity Offering

Proceeds to Partially Fund Construction, Capital Equipment For Ruby Creek Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 10, 2007) -


Adanac Molybdenum Corporation (TSX:AUA)(PINK SHEETS:AUAYF)(FRANKFURT:A9N) today announced it plans to raise up to $15 million with an equity offering to partially fund construction of the company's proposed Ruby Creek molybdenum project.

"This financing advances our Ruby Creek project to the next level," said Michael MacLeod, President and CEO. "The funding it provides will enable Adanac to continue construction activities and take possession of processing equipment we have ordered for the molybdenum mine."

The offering is being conducted through a syndicate of six agents co-led by Haywood Securities Inc. and MGI Securities Inc. The transaction structure is a fully marketed short-form prospectus, which provides for an over-allotment option to be exercised at the discretion of the agents.

The initiative seeks to raise the $15 million total with two classes of securities:

- flow-through shares; and

- units, with each unit consisting of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant with each warrant to be exercisable for a period of 24 months from the applicable closing date.

As currently contemplated, the flow-through share offering is scheduled to close on or about December 27, 2007 and the unit offering is scheduled to close on or about January 8, 2008.

The equity offering follows Adanac's October 17, 2007 announcement that the Company is retaining a U.S. investment bank in respect of a debt offering totaling US$600 million. Use of proceeds of the debt offering will be the same as for the current equity initiative.
