AXMIN Increases the Amount Offered Pursuant to Its Non-Brokered Private Placement to a Maximum of C$10 Million

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 12, 2010) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES. ANY FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS RESTRICTION MAY CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF U.S. SECURITIES LAW.

AXMIN Inc. (TSX VENTURE:AXM) is pleased to announce that further to its news release dated November 1, 2010, the Company is increasing the maximum size of its non-brokered private placement offering (the "Offering") by C$4 million for a total gross proceeds of up to C$10 million. Each Unit, priced at C$0.12 per Unit, consists of one common share, plus one common share purchase warrant. Each whole common share purchase warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share of AXMIN at a price of C$0.18 for a period of twenty four months following the closing of the Offering. AXMIN shall have the right to call the warrants by giving 30 days notice at any time if the common shares of AXMIN trade at $0.23 or higher on a Volume Weighted Adjusted Price ("VWAP") for a period of 15 consecutive trading days, on days that the common shares of AXMIN actually trade.

AXMIN intends to use proceeds of the Offering for completion of an updated feasibility study for its Passendro Gold Project in the Central African Republic ("CAR"), for exploration on its permit areas in CAR that have the potential to increase available resources at Passendro and to begin the soft start portion of the mine development to bring forward the production date. SENET (PTY) Ltd. of South Africa is heading the revalidation of the Passendro feasibility study based on a 3 million tonne per annum production profile. The revalidation is scheduled for completion in early 2011. Simultaneously, AXMIN has re-engaged Endeavour Financial International Corporation to provide debt finance advice with respect to project financing for the Passendro Project.

Closing of the Placement is subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and will occur as soon as practicable after the receipt of such approval. The Units, common shares, and warrants are subject to a four month hold period from the date of closing. Purchasers must deliver the completed subscription agreements and funds to AXMIN by November 19, 2010 and the Closing shall occur on or about November 24, 2010.

AXMIN will pay a finder's fee for that portion of the placement taken up by registered brokers ("Agents"), including BayFront Capital Partners Ltd., on behalf of certain parties that have indicated their intention to subscribe to the placement. In consideration for their services, the Agents will receive:

  • A cash compensation of 6% of the gross proceeds from the Offering that is placed by the Agent; and
  • Non-transferable compensation warrants equal to 6% of the number of Units sold by the Agent.
