CHAMPION MINERALS INC. ("Champion" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CHM)(FRANKFURT:P02) announces that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") of up to 3,000,000 units ("Units") of Champion at a price of $0.25 per Unit for total proceeds of up to $750,000. Each Unit will consist of one common share (the "Common Shares") and one non-transferable 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 $0.50 per share. If the average closing price of the Common Shares is over $0.75 for a period of 20 consecutive business days (following the expiry of the hold period), the Warrants must be exercised within ten business days of receiving written notice from the Company or they are to be terminated.

The Private Placement is subject to regulatory approval. Directors and/or officers of the Corporation may intend to purchase Units pursuant to the Private Placement. All securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to the applicable statutory, exchange and regulatory hold period.

The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for working capital and to finance continued exploration programs on Champion's properties.
