TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 25, 2007) -


Adex Mining Inc. ("Adex" or the "Corporation") announced today that it intends to raise up to $5 million in a best efforts private placement of the Corporation. Pursuant to the offering, the Corporation will issue up to 16,666,667 subscription receipts of the Corporation at an issue price of $0.30 per subscription receipt.

The gross proceeds of the Offering less the agents' commission and the estimated out-of-pocket costs and expenses of the agents will be held in escrow in an interest bearing account.

In the event that such conditions have not been satisfied at or prior to 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on the date which is 60 days following the closing of the offering, the escrowed proceeds (plus accrued interest) will be used by the Corporation to repurchase the subscription receipts at a redemption price equal to the issue price plus a pro rata amount of any interest accrued to the date of redemption. To the extent that the escrowed proceeds are not sufficient to purchase all of the subscription receipts, the Corporation will contribute such amounts as are necessary to satisfy any shortfall.

The agents will be paid a cash commission on closing equal to six percent of the gross proceeds of the Offering. In addition, the Corporation will issue to the agents such number of non-transferable broker warrants as is equal to six percent of the number of subscription receipts issued pursuant to the offering, with each such broker warrant being exercisable to acquire one common share of the Corporation at a price of $0.30 per share for a period of 12 months following the closing of the offering.

The net proceeds of the offering will be used to fund exploration and development activities at the Corporation's Mount Pleasant Mine Property and for general working capital purposes.

The offering is scheduled to close on or about May 24, 2007 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals. All securities issued pursuant to the offering will be subject to the applicable statutory and regulatory hold periods.
