Champion Announces $500,000 Financing

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 11, 2008) - CHAMPION MINERALS INC. ("Champion" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CHM) is pleased to announce that a private placement (the "Private Placement") of up to 1,111,111 Flow-Through Units (the "Units") to be issued on a "flow-through" basis at a price of 45 cents per Unit for gross proceeds to the Company of $500,000 has been arranged with Becher McMahon Capital Markets Inc. ("BMCM").

Each Flow-Through Unit will consist of one common share (the "Common Shares") to be issued on a "flow-through" basis under the Income Tax Act (Canada) and one half of one non-transferable non-flow-through share purchase warrant of the Company (the "Unit Warrants"). Each Unit Warrant will have a term of 18 months and will entitle the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of 70 cents per share.

All securities to be issued pursuant to this Private Placement will be subject to a four-month hold period. Subject to regulatory approval, the Company will pay BMCM an agent's fee equal to 8% of the gross proceeds of the completed Private Placement, and further, the Company will issue agent's share purchase warrants (the "Agent's Warrants"), equal to 10% of the number of Units subscribed for pursuant to the Private Placement. The Agent's Warrants would entitle BMCM to purchase a non-flow-through Common Share of the Company at a price of 45 cents per share.

The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to finance continued exploration programs at Champion's exploration projects located in the Labrador and Newfoundland and Northeastern Quebec. The Private Placement is subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.
