Marksmen Announces Loan Facilities and Private Placement

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - June 12, 2008) - Peter Malenica, President and Chief Executive Officer of Marksmen Resources Ltd. ("Marksmen") (TSX VENTURE:MA) is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into a letter of intent to enter into a $2,000,000 loan facility with a group of investors, a $1,400,000 loan facility with a group made up of insiders of Marksmen and two other individuals as well as a private placement financing with certain of the investors. The private placement will consist of 4,000,000 common shares to be issued on a "flow-through share" basis at a price of $0.10 per flow-through share for total gross proceeds of $400,000. The granting of the loan facilities and the financing are subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and are conditional on the negotiation and execution of definitive documents for the loan facilities and the financing. It is not anticipated that any new insiders will be created, nor that any change of control will occur, as a result of the private placement.

Proceeds of the loan facilities and the financing are intended to be used for repaying current credit facilities and to finance Marksmen's 2008 drilling program.

Marksmen has determined that exemptions from the various requirements of the TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.9 are available for the loan facility granted by the insiders of Marksmen.
