Alder Closes $3,875,000 Private Placement and Enters Into Definitive Agreement on La Montanita Colombian Gold Property Acquisition

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 18, 2010) - Alder Resources Ltd. ("Alder" or the "Company")(TSX VENTURE:ALR) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement financing (see press release dated April 5, 2010). The private placement was oversubscribed such that the company raised a total of $3,875,000 through the issuance of 15,500,000 common shares of the Company at a price of $0.25 each.

The common shares are subject to a hold period of four months plus one day, which expires on September 7, 2010 pursuant to applicable securities legislation. The Company paid finder's fees in the amount of $232,500 in cash and issued 1,250,000 share purchase warrants at an exercise price of $0.25 for one year in connection with some of the funds raised by third parties.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the financing to fund the exploration and development of the Company's properties and for working capital purposes. The proceeds are expected to aid significantly in increasing the value of the La Montañita gold property (the "Property") near Medellin, Colombia. 

The Company has entered into a final binding agreement to acquire the Property, reflecting terms described in the press release dated April 7, 2010. In connection with this purchase the Company has received a National Instrument 43-101 compliant technical report (the "Report") by an independent qualified person. Highlights of the report include NI 43-101 compliant sampling of underground Au veins with grades of up to 186.5 grams per tonne gold, 272 grams per tonne silver and 0.93 percent copper.

Both the placement and the acquisition are subject to regulatory approval.

After taking into consideration this private placement and the acquisition, the Company has a total of approximately 39,700,000 common shares issued and outstanding.
