VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 25, 2010) - Kinetex Resources Corporation (TSX VENTURE:KTX) (the "Company" or "Kinetex") is pleased to announce that it has arranged and closed the first tranche of a non-brokered private placement (the "Placement") consisting of 8,520,902 units (a "Unit'), at a subscription price of $0.15 per Unit, and for gross proceeds of $1,278,135.30.

Each Unit is comprised of one common share (a "Share") and one share purchase warrant (a "Warrant") of the Company. Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional Share of the Company (a "Warrant Share") at an exercise price of $0.25 per Warrant Share up to and including January 22, 2012. The Warrants are subject to an accelerated exercise provision if the share price of the Company trades at or above a premium of 40% of the exercise price (in effect, $0.35) for 21 or more consecutive trading days.

All Shares issued pursuant to the Placement and any Warrant Shares issued in connection with the exercise of any of the Warrants, if any, will be subject to a hold period expiring on May 23, 2010, in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange and applicable securities laws.

Finder's fees of $72,914 in cash have been paid and 474,892 finder's warrants have been issued in conjunction with the closing of the Placement. Each Finder's Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional Share of the Company at a price of $0.25 up to and including January 22, 2011.
