Genco Plans $2.5 Million Placement

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 29, 2009) -


Genco Resources Ltd. (TSX:GGC) proposes to carry out a private placement of up to 7,143,000 units of Genco at a price of CAD $0.35 per unit for gross proceeds of up to CAD $2,500,050. Each unit shall consist of one common share and one non-transferable warrant to purchase a further share for CAD $0.45 for a period of two years.

Genco has retained a finder in Europe to use its best efforts to locate investors. The finder will be paid a fee of 6% of the proceeds from the placement and issued finder's warrants equal to 6% of the number of units sold to investors located by the finder. Each finder's warrant will be exercisable to purchase one share at CAD $0.45 for a period of two years.

Genco's acting CEO, Robert C. Gardner, states, "This is an important financing for Genco. After a difficult financial transition, I believe this heralds a return to financial normalcy. We plan to close the placement quickly in view of the expressed interest."
