MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - Dec. 20, 2013) - BOWMORE Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:BOW) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has negotiated, subject to regulatory approval, a non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") for total gross proceeds of up to $600,000 (the "Private Placement"). The Private Placement will consist of up to 4,615,385 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.13 per Unit, each Unit consisting of one common share to be issued and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one common share of the Company for a period of twenty four (24) months at an exercise price of $0.20 per share.

Approximately 35% of the Units will be acquired by insiders of the Company and related party members and the remaining Units by other accredited investors. The Company has determined that there are exemptions available from the various requirements of TSX Venture Policy 5.9 and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 for the issuance of the securities to the insiders and related party members. No new insiders are anticipated to be created, nor will there be any change of control as a result of the Private Placement.

The proceeds from the Private Placement will be used for exploration work on the Company's Quebec and Newfoundland based properties. Closing of the Private Placement is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval. The securities issued will be subject to a standard four month hold period.
