Australian Mineral Fields Inc. Raises $5.5 Million in Private Placement

PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA--(CCNMatthews - April 2, 2007) -

NOT FOR DISSEMINATION TO U.S. WIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Australian Mineral Fields Inc. (the "Company") announced today that it has closed a private placement under which it issued 11,091,155 units at a price of Cdn.$0.50 per unit to raise gross proceeds of over Cdn.$5.5 million, less the commissions and expenses paid by the Company in connection with the offering. PowerOne Capital Markets Limited ("PowerOne") acted as agent in connection with the sale of five million units, and the remaining units were issued on a non-brokered basis.

Each unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to purchase an additional common share at a price of Cdn.$1.00 per share. In addition, each unit entitles the holder to one penalty right convertible into an additional 0.01 units on December 31, 2007 and on the last day of each subsequent calendar month thereafter unless and until the common shares of the Company are listed and posted for trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange, the TSX Venture Exchange or, with the consent of PowerOne, such other stock exchange as may be put forth by the Company.

Proceeds from the private placement will be used to fund grassroot exploration activities and reconnaissance drilling activities on the Company's exploration projects, geological reports and other fees related to the Company's intended application to have its common shares publicly traded and for general working capital purposes.

"The success of the private placement enables Australian Mineral Fields to accelerate the execution of our growth strategy according to plan," said Company President and Managing Director Marcus Willson. "In less than 10 months following our inception, we have acquired interests in five gold projects in Western Australia that provide a solid foundation for building a balanced portfolio with strong potential to yield both near and longer term shareholder value."
