Druk Capital Partners Inc. ("Druk" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:DRU.P), a capital pool company, is pleased to announce that, further to its news releases issued on May 18, 2012, June 6, 2012 and July 19, 2012, and in connection with its qualifying transaction (the "Qualifying Transaction"), it has closed the second and final tranche of its non-brokered private placement of 3,870,000 subscription receipts (the "Subscription Receipts") at a price of $0.25 per Subscription Receipt for gross proceeds of $967,500 (the "Final Tranche"). The Company has issued an aggregate of 26,082,000 Subscription Receipts for aggregate gross proceeds of $6,520,500 pursuant to the initial tranche of the non-brokered private placement that closed on July 19, 2012 and the Final Tranche (the "Private Placement").
Each Subscription Receipt will entitle the holder to receive one common share of the Company upon satisfaction of certain release conditions (the "Release Conditions") pertaining to the Qualifying Transaction. The gross proceeds from the sale of the Subscription Receipts will be held in escrow pending satisfaction of the Release Conditions. The Release Conditions include the receipt of all regulatory approvals required to complete the Qualifying Transaction and the Company and QMX Gold Corporation (formerly, Alexis Minerals Corporation) agreeing that all conditions under the definitive agreement have been satisfied. If the Release Conditions are not satisfied on or before October 31, 2012, then the subscription proceeds from the Private Placement will be returned to the subscribers of the Subscription Receipts. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Private Placement to fund the Qualifying Transaction, for the exploration of the Rouyn-Noranda base metal camp and for general working capital.
The Company will pay cash finders' fees on a portion of the Final Tranche of 3.5% of the aggregate gross proceeds received pursuant to the Final Tranche from subscribers introduced to the Company by such finders. The finders' fees will not be payable to the finders if the Release Conditions are not satisfied on or before October 31, 2012.
All securities issued pursuant to the Final Tranche will be subject to a statutory hold period expiring November 26, 2012. The Final Tranche is subject to receipt of all necessary approvals, including approval from the Exchange and all other applicable securities regulatory approvals.
Osisko Mining Corporation ("Osisko") has subscribed for an aggregate of 8,000,000 Subscription Receipts for aggregate proceeds of $2,000,000 and will become an important shareholder of the Company on closing of the Qualifying Transaction.

The President and CEO of Druk, Kelly Klatik, stated, "We look forward to completing this transaction with QMX and are pleased to have Osisko as an important shareholder who sees the potential of the package of assets and data Druk is acquiring and shares Druk's confidence in the future for the Rouyn-Noranda camp".
