VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 13, 2011) - The Canadian Financing Bulletin has been a leader in tracking financing activities of Canadian capital markets in the mining, energy and technology sectors for over five years. Our unparalleled service offers unique insight into small and micro cap stocks, as well as comprehensive comparative reports detailing the worldwide reach of Canadian companies in these sectors. With the listings of active proposed placements, investors and companies that might not otherwise receive analyst coverage are potentially brought together. As well, we offer coverage of activity in the bond market for users to be made aware of lower-risk opportunities.

In this week's report, the CFB published term sheets for 23 new proposed placements from the mining, oil/gas (termed metals and energy in the report) and technology sectors. Of those, 19 were for mining stocks and four for oil/gas stocks with the total value of new proposals reaching over $61m. Five of these placements were designated a 'flow through' issuance and there was no new debenture offerings. The largest new public proposal was by Blue Gold Mining Inc (BGX.V), which launched a share offering consisting of 20m shares at a price of $1.00 for proceeds of $20m in a placement led by Cormark Securities.

The CFB published term sheets for 28 placements that were closed during the week. Of these, 16 were for mining stocks, six for oil/gas, and six for technology stocks, with the total value of these closings being over $284m. Three of these placements were designated 'flow through' issuances and two debenture placements closed. The largest public closing was by Nautilus Minerals Inc (NUS.TO) which issued 28.0m shares at a price of $2.58 for proceeds of $71.4m in a non-brokered share offering.

The CFB also tracked one amendment to placements and one cancellation published at the end of the weekly report. To date, there have been 363 weekly reports created by CFB; backdated reports can be obtained by subscribers.
