Apogee Minerals Limited ("Apogee" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:APE) announces that it intends to complete a non-brokered financing of units of the Company at a price of $0.50 per unit for gross proceeds of up to $5,000,000. Each unit will be comprised of one common share and one-half of one share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant will be exercised for one Apogee common share at a price of $0.75 per warrant exercised for a period of 18 months from the date of issue.
