GA Capital Corp. Announcement of Closing of Kimpar's Non-Brokered Private Placement

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 17, 2008) - GA Capital Corp. ("GA") (TSX VENTURE:GAC.P) is pleased to announce the closing of the non-brokered portion of the private placement (the "Non-Brokered Placement") of securities of Kimpar Resources Inc. ("Kimpar") previously announced in GA's news release dated August 15, 2008. As previously announced, GA intends to complete a business combination (the "Business Combination") with Kimpar, which if completed, is expected to constitute GA's qualifying transaction (the "Qualifying Transaction") for purposes of Policy 2.4 of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange" or "TSX Venture") Corporate Finance Manual.

Pursuant to the Non-Brokered Placement, Kimpar has sold 600,000 subscription receipts issued on a "flow-through" basis (the "Flow-Through Subscription Receipts") at a price of $1.25 per Flow-Through Subscription Receipt for aggregate gross proceeds of $750,000. Each Flow-Through Subscription Receipt entitles the holder to one "flow-through" unit of securities of Kimpar (a "Flow-Through Unit"), with each Flow-Through Unit being comprised of one common share issued on a "flow-through" basis under the Income Tax Act (Canada) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant is exercisable to purchase one common share of Kimpar (the "Kimpar Common Share") at a price of $1.50 per share for a period of twelve (12) months from the time the Flow-Through Subscription Receipts are exchanged into Flow-Through Units.

In connection with the Non-Brokered Placement, Kimpar paid aggregate cash finder's fees of $45,000, representing 6% of the aggregate gross proceeds raised. In addition, Kimpar also granted to such finders, in the aggregate, non-transferable options to purchase up to 48,000 units of securities of Kimpar (the "Finder's Unit") for a period of 24 months from the earlier of the closing date of the Business Combination and the date that is four months from the closing date of the brokered private placement. Each Finder's Unit will consist of one Kimpar Common Share and one-half of one Warrant.

The gross proceeds of the Flow-Through Subscription Receipts will be used to incur "Canadian exploration expenses" which qualify as a "flow-through mining expenditure" for purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada) related to Kimpar's exploration projects in Quebec. Kimpar will renounce such Canadian exploration expenses with an effective date of no later than December 31, 2008. The total gross proceeds of the Non-Brokered Placement have been released to Kimpar.
