Largo Arranges Private Placement Financing

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 25, 2008) -


Largo Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:LGO) has agreed to sell 5,454,545 flow-through units at a price of $0.55 per unit. MineralFields Group has agreed to acquire the entire financing, subject to certain pre-closing conditions. Each unit will be comprised of one flow-through common share and one-half of one share purchase warrant (each whole share purchase warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant shall be exercisable for one common share at a price of $0.80 at any time prior to the date that is 18 months from the date of issue.

Mark Brennan, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Largo, commented, "we are pleased to lock in this financing with MineralFields Group. We plan to use the proceeds from this flow-through financing to continue our exploration program at the Northern Dancer Property in the Yukon."

The Northern Dancer deposit is one of the world's largest known tungsten-molybdenum porphyry systems. The mineralization is hosted in fractures and veins associated with a northeast-trending sheeted vein system in calc-silicate (skarn) rocks and spatially related to a felsic intrusion (quartz-feldspar porphyry). The deposit, which has been tested by drilling of 750 metres along strike, 500 metres vertically and 600 metres in width, remains open along strike to both the northeast and southwest as well as at depth.

Upon closing of the financing, Largo shall pay First Canadian Securities® a 6.5% cash finder's fee and 381,818 compensation options. Each compensation option will entitle First Canadian Securities® to acquire one compensation unit at a price of $0.55 per compensation option exercised at any time prior to the date that is 18 months from the date of issue. Each compensation unit shall be comprised of one non-flow-through common share and one-half of one Warrant.

The financing is subject to regulatory approval and all securities issued in connection with the financing will be subject to a four-month regulatory hold period.
