("Balmoral" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BAR)(OTCQX:BALMF) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced bought deal private placement offering (the "Offering") announced in its press release dated February 21, 2012 led by Casimir Capital Ltd.

The Offering involved the issuance of 2,000,000 flow-through common shares of the Company at a price of $1.52 per flow-through common share for aggregate gross proceeds of $3,040,000.

The Underwriter was also issued compensation warrants (the "Compensation Warrants") equal to 6% of the flow-through shares sold pursuant to the Offering. Each Compensation Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of $1.25 until the date that is twelve months from the closing date.

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 along the Detour Gold Trend in the province of Quebec. The securities issued are subject to a four month hold period under applicable securities laws in Canada.
