GESPEG COPPER RESOURCES INC. (TSX VENTURE:GCR) (the "Company" or "Gespeg") announces that it is proceeding with a non-brokered private placement of up to 15,000,000 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.05 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $750,000 (the "Offering"). Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (a "Common Share") and one whole Common Share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.15 for a period of 24 months from the closing of the Offering. The Units will be made available by way of prospectus exemptions in Canada and in such other jurisdictions as the Company may agree where the Units can be issued on a private placement basis, exempt from any prospectus, registration or other similar requirements.

The net proceeds from the Offering will be used by the Company to fund the exploration work on the Company's properties. Specifically, a proposed drill program of up to 2000 meters on the porphyry, skarn and mantos system on the Vortex Property (Sullipek East see news release August 10, 2012). The Company also intends to complete some additional prospecting on the Red Bed formation in the Port Daniel project, with a potential follow-on drill program of up to 1,000 meters. Additionally, other exploration work may be executed on the In Between project (MacNeill block) and the R-Jean project.

The Company may pay a finder's fee in connection with the Offering within the amount permitted by the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange TSX-V. Closing of the Offering is subject to a number of conditions, including receipt of all necessary corporate and regulatory approvals, including the TSX-V. All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus a day from the date of issuance in accordance with applicable securities legislation.
