Balmoral Resources Ltd. ("Balmoral" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BAR) announces that it has entered into an agreement with Casimir Capital Ltd. (the "Agent"), under which the Agent has agreed to offer $2,000,000 in securities of the Company, on a "commercially best efforts" flow-through private placement basis (the "Offering"). The Offering will consist of 956,938 flow-through common shares of the Company at a price of $2.09 per flow-through common share. The share price of the Offering represents a 66.7% premium to the 21 day average trading price of Balmoral's common shares for the period preceding the signing of the agreement. Prior to closing, the Agent will, with the consent of the Company, have the option to increase the proceeds raised under the private placement to a maximum of $3,600,000. 

The proceeds raised from the Offering will be used to continue the exploration of the Company's gold projects, including the Fenelon, Martiniere and Detour East Projects, located in the province of Quebec. Closing of the Offering is anticipated to occur on or before April 11, 2011. Closing of the Offering is subject to receipt of regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSXV for the Offering, and the entering into by the Company and the Agent of a definitive agency agreement. The securities issued will be subject to a four month hold period under applicable securities laws in Canada.

In consideration of the Agent's services, the Company has agreed to pay the Agent a cash commission of 6% of the gross proceeds of the Offering. The Agent will also receive broker warrants (the "Broker Warrants") equal to 6% of the shares sold pursuant to the Offering. Each Broker Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of $1.90 until the date that is twelve months from the closing of the Offering.
