Augyva Announces Brokered Private Placement

LA MACAZA, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 7, 2011) - Augyva Mining Resources Inc. ("Augyva" or, the "Company")(TSX VENTURE:AUV) has entered into an agreement with Industrial Alliance Securities Inc. ("IAS") in respect of a brokered private placement financing consisting of up to 8,333,333 units (the "Units") at a purchase price of $0.60 per Unit to raise total gross proceeds of up to $5,000,000 (the "Private Placement") on a commercially reasonable effort agency basis for accredited investors only.

The Units will consist of one (1) common share and one-half of one (½) common share purchase warrants. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share in the capital of the Company for a period of eighteen (18) months from the date of issuance (the "Warrant Term"), at an exercise price of $0.85 per share. However, should the volume weighted average closing price of the Company's common shares, as traded on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"), exceed $1.00 per common share for more than 20 consecutive trading days following the date that is four months and one day after the date of issuance, the Company may accelerate the Warrant Term to the date which is 20 days following the date a press release is issued by the Company announcing the reduced Warrant Term.

Net proceeds of the Units will be used for exploration works on its properties located in the province of Québec and strategic acquisitions and working capital purposes.

Certain directors, officers and insiders of Augyva may acquire Units under the Private Placement. Any such participation would be considered to be a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The transaction will be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of any shares issued to or the consideration paid by such persons will exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization. The securities issued will be subject to a four month and one day hold period.

The Private Placement will be subject to approval by the Exchange.
