Latin American Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:LAT) (the "Company" or "LAT") today announced that it has received approval from the TSX Venture Exchange to extend the closing date of its previously announced brokered private placement to June 2, 2016. The private placement is ongoing and the Company expects to close the private placement in a number of tranches on or prior to June 2, 2016.

The proceeds of the Offering will be used by the Company to fund working capital.

Each Unit is comprised of one common share (a "Common Share") in the capital of the Company and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share for a period of two (2) years from the closing of the Offering (the "Warrant Term") at a price of $0.18 per Common Share, provided, however, that should the closing price at which the Common Shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange (or any such other stock exchange in Canada as the Common Shares may trade at the applicable time) exceed $0.30 for 20 consecutive trading days at any time following the date that is four months and one day after the date of issuance of the Warrants, the Company may accelerate the Warrant Term (the "Reduced Warrant Term") such that the Warrants shall expire on the date which is 30 calendar days following the date a press release is issued by the Company announcing the Reduced Warrant Term.
