American Power Corp. Announces Closing of Private Placement to Fund Pace Coal Project Exploration

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - February 25, 2011) - American Power Corp. (OTCBB: AMPW) ("American Power" or "the Company") is pleased to announce the closing of a non-brokered private placement financing resulting in gross proceeds of $500,000. The net proceeds of the financing will be used for the exploration and development of the Pace Coal Project located in Judith Basin County, Montana, as well as for general corporate purposes.

To date, American Power has procured a total of $2.0 million from the same institutional investor, of which $1.4 million were received under the framework of the financing agreement announced on our press release dated September 14, 2010. The latter financing agreement allows American Power to request advances for up to $10 million through a 2.5-year stock issuance agreement, which also includes a warrant component that could provide additional funding to the Company over the coming years.

"I am delighted to say that we are well financed to explore and develop the Pace Coal project. Over the last 12 months, we have raised $2 million and still can call up a further $8.6 million under the financing agreement signed in September last year," commented Al Valencia, CEO of American Power. "We continue to work hard towards the prospecting permit application to initiate drilling operations during the first half of this year and this funding is will be used towards achieving that goal," added Mr. Valencia.
