Fission Energy Closes $11.1 Million Private Placement Financing

KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 15, 2007) -


Fission Energy Corp. ("Fission", or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:FIS) is pleased to announce that, further to its press release dated October 30, 2007, it has closed its private placement of common shares and flow-through shares. Cormark Securities ("Cormark") acted as the lead agent, on behalf of a syndicate of Agents, including Raymond James Ltd. (the "Agents") in the private placement.

Fission issued 6,572,000 common shares at a price $0.70 per share, and 8,415,000 flow-through shares at a price of $0.82 per share, for aggregate gross proceeds of $11,500,700.00. The flow-through shares will qualify as flow-through shares for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada). The Agents exercised their option to increase the offering by an additional 15% of flow-through shares and an additional 15% of common shares.

As consideration for acting as agents, the Agents received a total cash commission of $537,610 plus expenses and 700,600 broker warrants. Each broker warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.70 for a period of 18 months following the closing of the private placement.

The flow-through shares and common shares will be subject to resale restrictions until March 16, 2008.

The Company plans to use the proceeds from the sale of the flow-through shares on expenditures which will constitute Canadian Exploration Expenses (as defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada)) and the net proceeds from the sale of the common shares to advance development of the Company's properties and for general working capital.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the securities in the United States. The Flow-Through Shares and Common Shares have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act") or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to U.S. Persons unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.
